Where the Cloud Touches Down: Simplifying Data Center Infrastructure Management

Thursday, July 25, 2013
10:00 AM PT/1:00 PM ET

In most data centers, DCIM rests on a shaky foundation of manual record keeping and scattered documentation. OpManager replaces data center documentation with a single repository for data, QRCodes for asset tracking, accurate 3D mapping of asset locations, and a configuration management database (CMDB). In this webcast, sponsored by ManageEngine, you will see how a real-world datacenter mapping stored in racktables gets imported into OpManager, which then provides a 3D visualization of where assets actually are. You'll also see how the QR Code generator helps you make the link between real assets and the monitoring world, and how the layered CMDB provides a single point of view for all your configuration data.

A Network Computing Webinar:
SDN First Steps

Thursday, August 8, 2013
11:00 AM PT / 2:00 PM ET

This webinar will help attendees understand the overall concept of SDN and its benefits, describe the different conceptual approaches to SDN, and examine the various technologies, both proprietary and open source, that are emerging. It will also help users decide whether SDN makes sense in their environment, and outline the first steps IT can take for testing SDN technologies.

Visions Solutions Survey Says: Expectations Outweigh Protection

December 02, 2009 08:43 AM
New research released today by Vision Solutions, a high-availability solutions provider, suggests that organizations could increasingly be at risk to data loss largely due to their lack of willingness to invest in high availability technology. Research results from sponsoring vendors in general are items to be taken carefully and the same is true in this case. Without understanding more about the data set and survey design, it's hard to know the validity of Vision's conclusions.

Will They Make It? Part Two - Focus

December 01, 2009 10:06 AM
Developing a focus is hard for any organization, but it is probably the most important thing to the emerging technology company. As I stated in the first part of this series, determining if the emerging technology company you're looking to partner with is going to make it is never an exact science. There are many variables to consider, but one of the most important is their ability to focus.

The First Mover Disadvantage

November 19, 2009 10:20 AM
There is always an advantage to being first to market with a new product or technology, except it seems, in storage and networking. It seems companies that are the first in the space have the most difficult time staying viable. Certainly there are exceptions but it seems that there is a first mover disadvantage in technology.

Is Cloud Storage Getting Hijacked?

November 16, 2009 03:31 PM
I'm taking a bit of a break from the dedupe discussion to wrap up a few re-interviews and to time the continuation of the series with a upcoming special feature on deduplication that Network Computing will be running. In the meantime let's see if we can get this whole cloud storage thing sorted out. I had a supplier suggest to me the other day that the term cloud storage is getting hijacked. I disagree.

Scaling Backup Deduplication With Clustered Storage

October 30, 2009 10:58 AM
In my last entry I looked at scaling single system solutions, and in this entry I'll take a look at scaling backup deduplication via a storage cluster approach delivered by companies like Sepaton and Exagrid. The idea here is to make adding capacity and performance as simple as adding another node to the cluster. Each time you add a node, capacity and performance scales with it. This may be ideal for the enterprise and even for rapid growth mid-tier companies.

Data Deduplication Update 2 - Scalability

October 29, 2009 10:36 AM
As we continue our tour through the deduplication maze, one of the battle cries of data deduplication suppliers is how well their product scales. Scalability, however, is in the eye of the beholder. In the deduplication system space, this results in the classic battle of the single box storage system vs. a grid or clustered storage system. In the software space it raises questions.

Data Deduplication Update Part One

October 27, 2009 03:35 PM
Now that EMC's acquisition of Data Domain has settled in, it makes sense to take a look at the state of the deduplication market. It seems that much of the controversy in this space has subsided in recent months. Partly because two of the larger competitors now have the same business cards, but also because the systems and technologies are getting better. The discussion is moving beyond how does dedupe work and towards what can these systems really do for you? This is a needed step on the road to full adoption.

Day 2 - Live From SNW

October 13, 2009 05:46 PM
Continuing our Live from SNW series, our first few entries for today are going to be catch up from yesterday's final briefings. As before these are all coming rapid fire so I ask your continued patience, these are very much first impressions.

Sepaton And Bus-Tech Partnership Brings Backup And Recovery To The Mainframe And Distributed Systems

Zmanda Spruces Up Cloud Backup With ZCB Update

October 01, 2009 03:47 AM
Open source backup vendor Zmanda has rolled out the second generation of their Zmanda Cloud Backup (ZCB) product. The new version now offers cloud backup of MySQL and SharePoint, along with geography control, selective restore options. Focused on the small to mid-sized business, Zmanda brings a low price point and support for the most common server applications, mitigating some of the barriers of adoption to cloud-based backups.
