October 18, 2012 06:12 PMMicrosoft’s acquisition validates the market for premises-based storage that also links to the cloud, and inaugurates the software giant as a provider of IT hardware.
May 11, 2012 09:00 AMPanzura Global Cloud Storage System OS upgrade delivers more control, supports extended file system ACL, 50% more capacity and 10x better performance.
April 19, 2011 07:00 AMLast week, market research firm Gartner let it slip that Iron Mountain was shuttering its cloud storage service, and reliable sources are telling me that cloud storage gateway startup Cirtas has let its marketing and sales staffs go so the company can concentrate on improving the product. Is this a trend? Is the cloud falling? Will we be left choosing all our IT products from the five families ... oops ... remaining suppliers: IBM, HP, Dell, Oracle and Cisco?
February 24, 2011 09:00 AMI'm satisfied that snapshots and replication in conventional storage systems can serve the same function as more traditional backup schemes. While snapshots make satisfying the most common restore requests easy the limitations of most storage system's snapshot mechanism leave most organizations using snapshots as a supplement to, not a replacement for, backup copies. Does the cloud change the snapshot as backup calculus? Some cloud storage vendors say it does.
February 02, 2010 09:30 AMToday CommVault announced that their Simpana integrated backup and archiving software can now use public cloud providers in addition to local disk and tape as a data store. I hope that CommVault is, as they were with deduplication, leading a new wave of disk-to-disk-to-cloud (D2D2C)backup and archive solutions. While I firmly believe that there's a lot of life left in tape, especially for long retention archives with relatively low access rates, 25 years of consulting to organizations has taught me that tape drives, like backhoes and other heavy equipment, should be left to trained professionals. Small and even mid-size organizations rarely handle tape properly, leaving them exposed to data loss.
January 14, 2010 11:33 PMEven though it seems a bit old fashioned sending data from one place to another on physical media, like a USB hard drive or tape cart, can be a lot faster than your wide area network. To point this out, one of my early mentors used to say "Never underestimate the bandwidth of a truck full of tapes." Announcements last week from Compellent and Amazon point this out as each adds the option of using USB hard drives to load data at a remote location.
