      • Deciding where to deploy solid-state storage devices

        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.

  • Enterprise Hadoop: Ready for prime time?

    Many vendors are pitching Hadoop as the foundation for enterprise data management environments that delivers information and insights to business users and serves as a hub for other data systems and applications. In the era of big data, the case for Hadoop is strong: Hadoop provides a cost-effective way to ingest, store and process large volumes of multi-structured data. With Hadoop, organizations can store all data in its original format and provide a system of record for the enterprise. Even more, they can bring the applications to Hadoop and process the data in place.

    But does reality square with the promise today? Are companies willing to trust their enterprise data to Hadoop? The big question is whether Hadoop is ready to support enterprise-scale, production environments where data can't be corrupted or inconsistent. Does Hadoop have adequate management, monitoring, backup, recovery and security features? What are the major gaps today and what are vendors doing to plug the holes? At what point can companies trust production computing environments to Hadoop? This report, based on a comprehensive survey of business intelligence professionals and interviews with experts in the field, addresses these questions.

  • Overcome today's disaster recovery challenges

    The use of devices not connected to a local network is a challenge for IT staffs tasked with protecting data on those devices.

The cloud has been pushed as an alternative to tape for offsite storage for disaster recovery. However, there are challenges with this approach and with protecting applications running in the cloud.
