March 28, 2012 09:00 AMAn infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) provider, Tier 3, is partnering with data center services provider Equinix to enable enterprises to run a private cloud computing environment on a public cloud service. The idea is to help customers take advantage of the cost efficiency and flexibility offered by public cloud computing, while protecting them from worries about multitenancy and security that give so many enterprises pause.
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.
April 09, 2010 03:30 PMOne of the complaints about cloud storage is that it is not very neatly defined. The reality is that I don't think it ever will be. There are too many use cases and let's face it, the term "cloud" is being used for everything, not only on the storage side but also on the compute side. As we discussed in our article "What is Cloud Storage" there are many sides to the term. Ideally, we should have reserved the term for providers of storage that you access through the public Internet, for which you pay by the capacity you are using on a monthly basis. I think that's what most people think of as "cloud." Unfortunately, we didn't declare what the term should mean from day one, and that lead to the confusion we have now.
