    VMware VVOLs redefine storage

    VMware has been shaking up data storage for years, and its VVOLs technology just might revolutionize it.

VVOLs should make configuring and allocating storage easy while providing traditional networked storage services.

    Many companies use cloud storage services, but few have significant amounts of data in the cloud. Uneasiness about having data offsite, as well as security issues, still dog cloud storage. Hybrid implementations pairing on-premises storage with cloud storage are becoming popular, with vendors offering a variety of products and services.

  • Mobile content management software, EFSS protect data in the cloud era

    Thanks to mobile and cloud computing, the number of potential repositories for corporate data have increased exponentially. Traditional file storage systems, content management software and device-centric security measures can only do so much to organize and protect data that's constantly on the go. Cloud storage services, enterprise file synchronization and sharing (EFSS) and mobile content management (MCM) represent key alternatives in storing and providing access to corporate data in the new mobile cloud era. When implemented correctly, these technologies can provide secure data access to a mobile, distributed workforce. This guide explains how EFSS and MCM differ from -- and can work with -- traditional network shares to accomplish this goal. Continue Reading

  • Here and there: Blending on-premises and cloud environments

    Data center technologies and strategies are evolving toward a blend of infrastructures that reside partly on-premises and partly in the cloud. More and more, IT shops are being asked to coordinate technology resources rather than simply control them. This is a change that requires a different mindset, as old habits will be broken and new strategies implemented. In the end, IT teams will adapt to a reality of on-premises and off-premises infrastructure. In the age of cloud computing, traditional data center practices seem to no longer apply. After all, if something can be run more easily and more cheaply in the cloud, why shouldn’t it be? But, of course, the questions are not so simply asked—or answered. Some organizations may choose to leave certain essential databases on-premises. Other applications are prime candidates for deployment to the cloud. Companies of all sizes are struggling to determine which components of their IT infrastructure ought to be running in the cloud and which functions belong under their own roofs. What about customer data? Should that be maintained on-premises in all situations? Or is that an old-fashioned notion that keeps a business from maximizing its IT efficiency? These types of questions are fundamental in the on-premises vs. cloud debate. IT teams need strategies and tools that will help them successfully blend on-premises and cloud technologies. Continue Reading
