Cloud backup and disaster recovery are slowly gaining traction in the data protection space, particularly as many organizations leverage the hybrid on-premises/cloud approaches vendors rolled out in 2012. Other new backup techs are on the rise, as well, like array-based snapshots and converged backup/file sharing and archiving applications. Explore this expert Storage Handbook to get the scoop on data backup applications going into the new year, and learn about cloud backup and DR, snapshots, VM backups and big data protection.
Solid-state storage can be deployed in a storage array alongside traditional hard disk drives, as an all-flash array, as a separate caching appliance, or in the a server using a PCIe card. Each approach has pros and cons which must be weighed based on the workload you are trying to address before deploying a solution. In this Drill Down on where to deploy solid-state storage, you will find an article explaining the pros and cons of all of these options, another piece which discusses effective use cases for solid-state storage, and a third which outlines examples of when flash is not the right tool for the job. This compilation of articles details the solid-state implementations available today and helps you figure out how to decide which is right for your organization's needs. If you are considering an investment in solid-state storage, this Drill Down is great place to start.
