March 08, 2012 09:00 AMWhile adoption of predictive analytics systems is still relatively modest, the promise they hold--giving companies a quick and logical way to make use of unstructured or big data to provide preemptive warning of failure, among other things--is prompting vendors to embed the functionality in their larger management consoles and application performance management systems.
February 09, 2012 01:00 PMWholesaler Distribution Management is using F5's new VDI support to take advantage of growing mobility and virtualization opportunities while addressing many of the accompanying challenges, including increased infrastructure costs and performance issues.
January 09, 2012 06:48 AMFireHost is extending its scaling options, adding a scheduling capability to its cloud service offering. In addition to scaling on demand, the scheduled scaling feature lets customers that can predict demand manage capacity more effectively.
October 30, 2009 10:58 AMIn my last entry I looked at scaling single system solutions, and in this entry I'll take a look at scaling backup deduplication via a storage cluster approach delivered by companies like Sepaton and Exagrid. The idea here is to make adding capacity and performance as simple as adding another node to the cluster. Each time you add a node, capacity and performance scales with it. This may be ideal for the enterprise and even for rapid growth mid-tier companies.

Scalability, however, is in the eye of the beholder. In the deduplication system space, this results in the classic battle of the single box storage system vs. a grid or clustered storage system. In the software space it raises questions.
