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.

Hot Flash: Researchers Use Heat to Counter NAND Flash Wear-n-Tear

December 10, 2012 11:40 AM
Engineers have announced a new technique using heat to extend flash write/erase cycles from 10,000 to 100 million or more. But while tech breakthroughs are great, prudent management may be a better solution to flash’s lack of endurance.

Rise Of HTML5 Brings With It Security Risks

January 24, 2012 08:30 AM
HTML5 is the new "it" protocol on the Internet. Among other things, it is an alternative to Adobe's Flash for displaying content through a Web browser. No less an industry authority than the late Steve Jobs declared in 2010 that browsers on Apple devices such as the iPad would support HTML5 and not Flash. But as HTML5 gains wider adoption, some of its security flaws are beginning to get noticed, including the WebSocket specification that renders Web pages more quickly than does Flash.

2012: Flash To Supplant Disk?

December 29, 2011 11:59 AM
It looks like 2012 could be a very big--if less profitable--year for the flash/solid-state storage industry, which should translate into good news for enterprise customers and not-so-good news for disk vendors, at least until the summer. Expectations are for a glut in flash and continued shortages in disk. For the second half of 2011, hard disk drives were predicted to account for 71% of the enterprise market, up 0.9% from the first half of the year, while SSDs were forecast to shoot up 61% to $1.35 billion from $843 million, according to IHS-iSuppli.

Year In Review: Flash Comes of Age

December 19, 2011 01:55 PM
If disk is the heavyweight segment of the storage market, dominated by seven vendors--three pure-play (EMC, NetApp and HDS) and four IT generalists (IBM, HP, Dell and Oracle/Sun)--holding more than 80% of the market, then flash (or solid state) is the cocky up-and-comer and 2011 was the year that flash finally made the jump to legitimate contender. And while disk continues to muscle along, accounting for the lion's share of the storage market being driven by data growing at almost 60% per year, the much smaller flash market is undergoing hypergrowth.

Virident Unveils Big Flash Storage In Small Package

November 11, 2011 08:00 AM
Virident Systems is rolling out FlashMAX MLC, a PCIe storage class memory (SCM) product. The system provides 1.4 Tbytes in a low-profile form factor with vFAS (flash management with Adaptive Scheduling), delivering more than 1.4 million IOPS. It is available in 1-Tbyte and 1.4-Tbyte versions for $13,000. The company says its vFAS now includes a data sanitization feature, of particular interest to the public sector, that allows users to remove sensitive or classified data from FlashMAX products in a secure manner, complying with NIST and DOD standards for data sanitization at both the Clear and Purge level for NAND flash media.

Nimble Moves Up-Market With High-Capacity, High-Performance Hybrid Storage

November 03, 2011 11:56 AM
Nimble Storage is rolling out a new top-end hybrid iSCSI storage array that combines flash and disk with 50% more capacity and double the cache, along with a new release of its operating system that simplifies the creation and management of storage for virtual machines in VMware.

FlashSoft Adds Linux, ESX Support

October 07, 2011 10:30 AM
FlashSoft is looking to significantly expand its addressable market with a new release of its software that enables enterprise SSD or PCIe as a persistent read-write cache in the server, with performance improvements and the addition of Linux support. FlashSoft SE 2.0 will reportedly accelerate server performance from three to 10 times, and supports concurrent workloads three times to five times greater for applications running on Windows and now Linux.

Fusion-io Doubles Enterprise Flash Performance

October 03, 2011 11:03 AM
Two new releases from Fusion-io--ioDrive2 and ioDrive2 Duo--double the performance of the first-generation flash offering, with better latency, endurance and reliability, says company CEO and President David Flynn. The new features include 15-microsecond latency, 900,000 write IOPS, 700,000 read IOPS, 3-Gbyte per second bandwidth, nearly symmetrical read and write access, up to 2.4 Tbytes of capacity and system-level integration with Fusion-io VSL 3.0 software subsystem.

Violin Memory: This Is The Impact Event Before The Extinction Of Hard Disks

September 27, 2011 01:02 PM
Hailing the arrival of all-silicon enterprise storage and the end of mechanical storage arrays, Violin Memory is rolling out new products that deliver 80% reduction in cost per input/output operations per second (IOPS) and a 15-to-1 reduction in physical consolidation of hardware from a disk array vendor. The company says its new 6000 series and the addition to the 3000 series of solid-state drives mark the beginning of the end for hard disk drives, equivalent to the impact event that killed off the dinosaurs.
