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 Tale of Two Object Stores

November 06, 2013 01:19 PM
New storage systems have joined the ranks of object stores, but they're really more general purpose storage devices that use some object storage concepts.

Eliminating Noisy Neighbors in the Public Cloud

May 15, 2013 08:05 PM
An IaaS provider is using all-SSD arrays and storage QoS to ensure that some tenants can’t disrupt performance of others by overconsuming resources.

IBM Makes Economic Case for All-Flash Arrays

April 22, 2013 11:53 AM
IBM claims all-flash arrays are now more economical than traditional hard disks for Tier-1 storage. Is it time to ditch spinning disks?

Storage QoS: The Next Frontier?

November 12, 2012 03:33 PM
Storage quality of service (QoS) aims to make storage performance more predictable without the need to over-allocate resources. We’ll look at the ins and outs of this emerging concept.

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.

Two More Stealthy Solid-State Storage Startups

March 01, 2012 09:00 AM
My last post discussed, or at least mentioned, all the startups, and re-startups, building storage systems designed around flash memory that have made public announcements. Most startups spend the time they're developing Version 1.0 of their products in stealth mode so they can pop up fully formed like Athena from the skull of Zeus. We at DeepStorage have developed our own startup detection system that ferrets out those flying under the radar. In this column we'll look at a pair of stealth startups: XtremIO and Proximal Data.

Solid State Drives New Wave of Storage System Startups

February 28, 2012 09:00 AM
It was just last year that many of us in the storage chattering class were talking about how the market for mainline storage systems had consolidated after 3Par and Compellent were swallowed up by HP and Dell, respectively, leaving the market with just one or two smaller vendors to keep the big boys honest. That discussion failed to recognize that solid state storage had made the transition to the mainstream, and that there was a new wave of startups building storage systems optimized for flash.
