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.

As flash-based caching systems add write-back capabilities, be aware that performance gains can hit a wall.

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.

Cavium SoCs Promise Fast, Cheap IT Hardware

June 12, 2013 12:10 PM
Relentless miniaturization will fuel a new generation of low-cost network and storage appliances with enterprise features and performance.

DIY Storage: Why I Built My Own SAN

March 29, 2013 02:36 PM
I built my own SAN to meet some storage needs at my job. In a series of posts I’ll cover the reasons why, how I did it, and the hardware and software I used.

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.

SSDs Continue Enterprise Penetration

April 04, 2012 09:00 AM
Flash/solid-state disk (SSD) drives are changing the way enterprise storage vendors are developing their products, says Gary Watson, CTO of disk-based data storage systems provider Nexsan, which just came out with its NST-Series of unified storage systems. The release follows LSI’s ongoing transition from spinning disks to solid state with its latest Nytro products, which are focused on bringing flash into the server. And in February, EMC announced that its PCIe/flash-based server cache technology, VFCache, is now available.

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.

Two Companies Cope With Storage And Transfer Of Large Files

September 13, 2010 12:00 PM
Increasingly large, unstructured data files are inundating corporate data centers storage capacity and WAN connections. For companies that are using more and more videos, photographs and graphics, file sizes are naturally expected to grow, but in a recent Network Computing State of Storage survey [registration required], the majority of respondents said storage growth was 10-24 percent year over year. All of this contributes to the ongoing saga of what to do with this burgeoning data as it meets up with internal storage repositories and communications bandwidths that were designed for smaller files of day-to-day transaction processing, not for large data payloads.
