May 10, 2012 01:00 PMWhiptail's Invicta, called the world's first scale-out, modular, enterprise-class solid state storage platform, offers up to 72 Tbytes of NAND flash capacity, sustained bandwidth beyond 6 Gbytes per second, sustained IOPS beyond 600,000 and a latency that's so low it's virtually undetectable in a multitenant, multiprotocol environment.
April 13, 2012 09:00 AMEvery year since the first Global 2000 company installed VMware, server virtualization has been at the core of more and more data center architectures. Vonage is one major corporation that is now making the leap, and its architects shared with me how 10 Gigabit Ethernet is playing a key role in how the organization handles vMotions.
March 07, 2012 09:00 AMIn the beginning, or at least the 20th century, modular scale-up storage systems dominated the market for midrange storage. More recently, the vendors of scale-out systems for NAS and iSCSI have touted the way their systems add controller horsepower and cache as they add capacity. Nexsan's new NST line of unified storage systems combines attributes of both architectures, hoping to leverage the best of both worlds.
March 02, 2012 09:00 AMDeploying a scalable NAS system takes more than just buying the right equipment; it takes a plan, and that plan has to have a solid foundation based on principles surrounding what a NAS should and should not do.
March 01, 2012 09:00 AMMy 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.
February 27, 2012 01:00 PMEnterprise storage infrastructure still contains quite a bit of direct-attached storage (DAS), but SMEs are in the process of making the move to consolidated storage, a shift that has already taken place at the Fortune 500 level. Even as storage consolidation catches on in the enterprise, though, there is a trend towards building scale-out storage architectures.
February 10, 2012 09:00 AMWhen Riverbed and others brought WAN acceleration to the market around the turn of the century, many of us hoped that with WAN acceleration we could pull the servers, and the headaches they cause, from branch offices. Unfortunately, many organizations found reasons to keep servers in the branches. Riverbed's new Granite appliance allows organizations to keep servers in their branch offices while eliminating many of the headaches through what Riverbed's calling Edge Virtual Server Infrastructure.
January 27, 2012 03:30 PMStartup Scale Computing delivers scale-out, unified storage for the mid-market, meaning users can access SAN/NAS resources from the same, scalable pool of disk storage. Scale Computing is by no means alone in doing this, but the company goes beyond just delivering storage in a box to delivering a data center in a storage box. And that is very interesting.
November 15, 2011 04:15 PMLast week, some colleagues and I had a chance to spend the day at Dell's headquarters in Austin, Texas. It was seven hours of meetings, getting a dump on Dell's various lines of business, and was capped off with a meeting with the man himself, Michael Dell. It was an informative day, meeting with folks who run the storage, server, networking, and channel divisions of the company. I came away with one overriding thought: Here's a company that is focused.
October 07, 2011 07:00 AMiSCSI pioneer SANRAD’s foray into solid-state disk (SSD) caching should help the company redefine itself from just another iSCSI bridge provider to a player in the much bigger storage virtualization and acceleration market. SANRAD's new V-Switch XL adds application-optimized SSD caching to its hardware iSCSI virtualization appliance.
