Cloud data centers approaching density limits?

| By: (135)

Data creation continues down a rampant growth path, straining storage capacity and giving rise to the need for increasing data center density. Storage devices are evolving as drives, HDD and/or flash, increase capacity with every new product release.  One would think these two trends would counter balance each other. Not so fast!  Data creation is winning the race. We add more data through sources like the Internet of Things (IoT),…

Complete Business Solutions – Future for major vendors?

| By: (135)

A few weeks ago I attended IBM Edge and was impressed with the emphasis IBM had placed on total solutions to business problems. As an industry veteran of several major vendors, including IBM, the goals in each vendor were always to move beyond hardware and into software and services. With commoditization of hardware, it is logical to see IBM continue moving toward a higher mix of software and services. In…

Top 10 Questions to Ask Your Storage Provider about Data Efficiency

Top 10 Questions to ask your Storage Provider about Data Efficiency: Question #1- Block Size

| By: (135)

Question 1: At what granularity (block size) does your technology recognize duplicates? Best Answer: 4 KB blocks Unlike storage for backup, primary storage is characterized by high random access throughput and low latency. To be effective in primary storage, deduplication needs to scale with customers’ performance requirements and to run inline. For high-performance, flash-based storage devices, it must be able to operate at or above the 1M IOPS level when…

Tegile’s tech trajectory: All-flash function in hybrid mutant body

| By: (135)

Nair provided a brief overview of some competitors, claiming: with Nimble Storage flash functions as a read layer and there is no deduplication, Tintri flash functions as both a read and write layer with dedupe only for SSDs, not for the disk drives, Tegile deduplicates all data in its arrays inline, NetApp’s dedupe is a post-process operation, Ditto EMC’s VNX.

WW Disk Systems Market Up Only 1% From 4Q12 to 4Q13 – Idc

| By: (135)

“The disk storage systems market was able to break free of recent headwinds due to traditional year-end budget flushes, improved economic sentiment, and a strong desire to address long-standing storage infrastructure inefficiencies,” said Eric Sheppard, research director, IDC storage. “Industry stakeholders able to capitalize the most on this demand were often those with recent product refreshes and strong go-to-market initiatives targeted at integrated infrastructure and storage optimization.” […] Read the source…

VMware Virtual SAN shines storage spotlight on VMware, hyper-convergence

| By: (135)

“Gelsinger said the value of vSAN is that it makes storage “radically simple, high-performance and cost-effective.” We do know vSAN is missing valuable storage features, such as deduplication/compression; tiering; wide striping or erasure coding; advanced data protection, such as continuous data protection; and policy-based data movement to the cloud. In other words, it’s software-defined storage without many of the features we associate with storage software.” Dave Raffo – Tech Target…

The Enterprise Storage Market: What It Will Take to Win This Year?

| By: (135)

Compelling economics. To win in the enterprise market, storage solutions need hybrid flash and HDD persistent storage volumes—and the flexibility to match performance/cost to specific workloads. They should be built on commodity hardware and require dramatically less space and power. As far as specs, they must offer, as a bare minimum, less than $0.5/IOP, less than $0.5/GB (hybrid), more than 10 million IOPS/rack and more than 1 million IOPS/KW. Most of…
