November 27, 2012 08:29 PMOpenStack is a continually evolving initiative to enable the deployment of cloud computing services using open source software. We’ll examine the most recent release of the platform, called Folsom, which adds two new modules for networking and block storage.
October 09, 2012 05:21 PMA common knock against the use of tape for long-term archives is that data has to be migrated every few years as tape formats change. Not so. With good management, you can go 10 years between tape migrations. Here's why and how.
September 04, 2012 02:56 PMVMware's focus has shifted from virtualizing servers to virtualizing whole data centers--and storage vendors are happy to jump on for the ride.
April 17, 2012 09:00 AMThe OpenStack open source initiative for developing cloud computing resources is gaining traction. Rackspace is introducing a number of new products based on OpenStack, including Rackspace Cloud Networks for delivering software-defined networking. Nicira will be partnering with Rackspace to deliver "networking as a service" based on the OpenStack Networking project code-named Quantum.
April 11, 2012 11:00 AMCloud storage solutions are all the rage and are dropping in price, increasing in performance and threatening SANs as the primary means of storing data in the enterprise.
April 05, 2012 09:00 AMA bit more than a year ago the folks behind the LTO tape format standards, primarily IBM, with some contributions from HP and Quantum, added the Linear Tape File System to LTO's feature list. While some niche markets, primarily the media and entertainment business, have adopted LTFS, it won't live up to it's promise without support from archiving and eDiscovery vendors.
July 28, 2011 08:00 AMAt least two-thirds of organizations are not deduping their data, says Quantum, a market opportunity the backup, recovery and archive specialist wants to address with two new dedupe appliances. The DXi6701 (1 Gbit Ethernet) and DXi6702 (10 Gbit Ethernet) provide investment protection and a future-proof feature set, a new standard of value, and unique distributed deduplication with DXi Accent.
July 28, 2011 07:00 AMQuantum has come out with a new system that could shake things up a little in the backup storage market. Somehow Quantum has managed to get Veg-a-matic like flexibility into the DXi6700 while simplifying the purchase process and adding a new hybrid deduplication scheme, all at a new lower price.
November 10, 2010 11:00 AMData deduplication first appeared on specialized appliances designed to be used as the target of an existing backup application like NetBackup or Networker. My friend W. Curtis Preston recently posted a chart comparing the performance of the current generation of these appliances to his Mr. Backup Blog. While this helps answer some questions you may have about deduplicating appliances it begs another. In an era where I can dedupe data at just about any stage in the backup process where is the best place for me to backup my data? Today we just don't have answers to these questions. Maybe someday.
September 01, 2010 08:00 AMStorage vendor Quantum Corp. has added to its line of deduplication and replication appliances with a model targeted at mid-range customers who want high performance in their Fibre Channel storage area network (SAN) environments. The DXi6700 is a follow-up to the previously announced DXi6500 model appliance designed for network-attached storage (NAS) environments. While the 6700 saves data to storage disks or to legacy tape storage, the virtual tape library (VTL) user interface emulates a tape storage environment.
