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.

NVMe Poised To Revolutionize Solid-State Storage

April 08, 2014 12:19 PM
Move over SAS and SATA. A new standard ramps up SSD performance with a radical new approach to storage I/O handling.

DIY Storage Part 4: Building Redundancy

July 16, 2013 02:08 PM
In building my own SAN to meet some storage needs at work, I figured out how to overcome problems on the path to redundancy and high availability. Here's what I learned works for creating a HA array.

False Disk Drive Failures Are a Real Problem

March 26, 2013 01:34 PM
New information shows disk drives report false failures with alarming frequency. False failures have real costs for data center operators. Here’s what the industry can do about it.

It’s A Solid-State Symposium

April 20, 2012 09:00 AM
Next week I’m off to sunny San Jose for the first Solid State Symposium and Storage Field Day. While Storage Field Day follows the general blogger’s tech-day format, the Solid State Symposium is a public event on Wednesday, when we’ll try to wrangle the future of solid state storage out of the sponsoring vendors and industry luminaries.

Marvell's New SSD Strategy: One Size Can Fit All

January 09, 2012 10:30 AM
Silicon developer Marvell is taking its first steps into the PCI Express (PCIe) SSD controller market with several new products built on the strategy that choice scalability will be the winning formula. The new controllers provide a core building block creating PCIe SSDs in flexible configurations that incrementally scale in cost, capacity and performance. This will enable SSD OEMs and system integrators to create flexible PCIe SSD configurations that eliminate SAS or SATA conversion for better I/O performance required by different market segments.

Viking Modular Solutions Announces Market-Leading SAS SSD Solution

September 16, 2010 09:59 AM
Viking Modular Solutions, a division of Sanmina-SCI Corporation, and a leading manufacturer of innovative DRAM modules and flash solutions, today announced that the newest member of its SSD product family, the Element Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) SSD, is available for immediate qualification. This enterprise class 2.5" SAS SSD delivers unparalleled price-performance, helping to redefine server and storage SSD utilization.

What Makes Storage Primary?

August 09, 2010 09:00 AM
Over the years I've had many conversations with users about their primary, secondary and sometimes tertiary storage. Too often the conversation quickly moves to products and applications with the members of the fraternal order of steely eyed storage guys insisting that only a Symmetrix, USP-V or similar supporting OLTP applications could be considered primary. So I have to ask: What makes storage primary?

What Storage System? It Depends.

July 29, 2010 10:00 AM
When at a storage event or even responding to comments, every so often a specific question comes up about which protocol, drive type, backup application should a user implement for their specific environment. The answer that should come back most often is "it depends" because that's the truth.The reality is that for most situations, you can get almost anything to work. Its a matter of how hard you have to work at it.

Does Primary Storage Deduplication Kill Archive And Backup?

July 02, 2010 10:19 AM
As we begin to test primary storage deduplication technology, our initial findings are that the latency it introduces may be a non-issue for many data centers and applications. It may soon be a non-issue for all data centers and applications. If you can get deduplication on primary storage for "free" from a performance perspective, what is the impact of primary storage on the other tiers of storage? Does primary storage deduplication kill archive and backup?

The Challenges of Legacy Storage

June 03, 2010 11:30 AM
Sometimes it's tough being a legacy storage supplier. To maintain backward compatibility, your early success sometimes becomes your greatest inhibitor. We've seen some of these legacy vendors struggle to bolt on capabilities like virtualization and thin provisioning to existing platforms. There is foundational change being driven by hardware advances like Solid State Disk (SSD), Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) and Massive Array of Idle Disks (MAID).
