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.

How Shopping for Solid-State Storage Is Like Shopping for a Fast Car

May 29, 2012 10:55 AM
Much like the luxury car market, there are a variety of options in the solid-state storage market. Focused on speed? Bargain shopping? There's an SSD vendor for you.

SNW Trots Out 'Cool' Storage Tech

April 09, 2012 09:00 AM
The Storage Networking World I attended in Dallas last week was a substantially different event than SNWs of old. In the past, SNW was the event where storage vendors socialized with each other, mixing business and pleasure over drinks and the pre-conference golf outing. This SNW seemed to have a lot more end users there for the education sessions and hands-on labs.

Nimbus Doubles SSD File System Capacity Of 250 TB

July 20, 2010 09:00 AM
Nimbus Data Systems has expanded the capacity of its systems by announcing the S-1000, which provides up to 10 TB of solid state capacity per shelf, more than doubling the capacity of the system to 250 TB within a file system. Previously, the system supported up to 105 TB. In addition, the company announced FlexConnect, an embedded switch option for the device that the company says eliminates the need for a standalone storage-area network switch in most environments by providing up to 12 10GbE ports.

NAS Market Heats Up

May 10, 2010 09:30 AM
Interest seems to be picking up in the mid-range unified storage space lately. In the past month or so, we've seen Iomega and NetGear move up market with 12-drive systems with enough intestinal fortitude to host Exchange and VMware via iSCSI. Moving up-market, Xiotech, Compellent and Nimbus have all announced higher-end NAS/block systems, and rumors have been floating around that EMC is about to merge their Clariion and Celerra lines.

Nimbus Goes All-In For SSD

May 07, 2010 09:00 AM
In the venture-driven, "grow-faster-or-go-home" storage world, it's gratifying when a company is run like the small business that it is. Nimbus Data systems has been selling iSCSI disk arrays and unified storage systems for about five years, and they've been making money despite their low profile. Now, like Cortez burning his ships upon his arrival in the New World, Nimbus data CEO Tom Iskovich is betting the company that the market is ready for all SSD storage systems, discontinuing their current models with spinning discs. I've written before how I thought an array of reasonably priced SSDs might be a better idea than a few STEC ZEUSiops at $10,000 or more a pop. Now Nimbus has proven me right.

Nimbus Offers Green, Cost-Efficient Storage With SSD

April 27, 2010 03:30 PM
Taking a "green technology" approach, Nimbus Data Systems Inc. says that its Sustainable Storage solid-state drive (SSD) network storage devices could result in energy costs up to 95 percent lower than those of traditional network storage based on spinning disk storage technology, but what impressed most analysts briefed on the product line was the price. The traditional hard drive has not kept pace with technology, and the best way to address its power and performance limitations is to do away with it entirely, says Tom Isakovich, CEO of the San Francisco-based company. The five-year-old company has about 30 employees, 200 customers, and is both profitable and debt-free.
