Sponsored by SolidFire - “Never run out of disk space” became the storage administrator’s prime directive because of the big difference between storage and the rest of an organization’s IT infrastructure. When the network guys slightly underestimate the bandwidth they’ll need to provide, the network gets congested and applications slow down. Similarly, if the server crew ends up running a few too many VMs on too few hosts, the VMs run slower. See More
Sponsored by SolidFire - As cloud providers transition toward offering managed services, they must look for ways to reduce costs for their customers in an increasingly competitive market. One way of doing so is to take a multi-tenant approach to storage. See More
Sponsored by NetApp - Enterprise organizations that deploy cloud-based applications could be in for a big surprise if they decide to change cloud service providers. The lack of data interchange standards and the sluggish speed of bulk data transfers over TCP/IP networks make data portability between clouds difficult at best—and unworkable at worst. See More
Sponsored by HP - When moving data between storage devices (such as when migrating from a legacy storage array to a next-generation one), interrupted data access is still considered the norm. While some businesses make use of data migration software to avoid locking themselves to a specific storage vendor, this approach is not cost-effective in situations where migrations only take place at certain points in the technology refresh cycle. A solution that simplifies the management of data movement by eliminating the need for multiple products or additional management layers while simplifying scalability and availability improvements is needed.
