Many factors are contributing to the endlessly increasing volumes of data that organizations must now deal with, including cloud-based infrastructure and virtualization. This data contains a wealth of information that enterprises can use to transform their businesses, but first, a place for it must be found. Software-defined storage (SDS) has been gaining ground because it is highly flexible as well as affordable. It's no surprise, then, that the SDS market is expected to realize revenues of nearly $16.2 billion in 2021. Enterprise storage spending is shifting from on-premises IT infrastructure toward private, public and hybrid cloud environments and from hardware-defined, dual-controller array designs toward SDS. However, buying options are not as clear-cut as you might like them to be. All SDS options on the market share certain traits, but they are not all crea... (more)

What Type of File System? | @CloudExpo @CompuverdeSDS #SDS #SDN #DataCenter

What Type of File System Are You Really Getting? The cloud's massive success and the growing desire for Big Data analytics are just two of the factors that are making traditional storage architectures obsolete. Organizations cannot afford to scale bygone storage appliances. Even if they could, the time it would take is unacceptable in the digital world. Adding multiple servers could not accommodate storage demands, either. Vertical storage architecture contains bottlenecks that slow performance to a crawl. Along with cloud and analytics, another technological advancement has eme... (more)

Future Proofing the Data Center

More and more of our lives are lived online. Our music collections, bookshelves, vacation memories and more are increasingly digitized and uploaded into the cloud, the vast network of server farms that provide the bulk of online storage today. Research firm Gartner projects that by 2016, 36 percent of consumer content will be stored on the cloud, up from a mere seven percent in 2011. Service providers, watching these trends with a wary eye, will be required to accommodate ever-increasing demands for storage as consumer appetites for cloud content storage continues to grow. To ad... (more)

Solving the Storage Problem | @CloudExpo #IoT #Cloud #BigData #Storage

Web-scale IT is a pattern of global-class computing that delivers the capabilities of large cloud service providers within an enterprise IT setting by reimagining positions across several dimensions. The unprecedented explosion of Big Data and cloud services is driving the development of new storage architectures to store the information produced by this web-scale trend. It is becoming increasingly clear that even a linear growth trajectory for storage is insufficient to deliver the quantity of storage needed for data produced by the Internet of Things. Current architectures have... (more)

The Future Is Now: Why Flash Storage Will Transform the Data Center

For an example of just how dramatically storage has changed over the past fifteen years, consider your music collection. At one point, you had a collection of cassettes that stored the song files on tape. As the years went on, your hairstyle changed and you bought a CD player that used a spinning disk to store more song data at a higher quality than tape could. Spinning disks flourished well into the MP3 player era, surviving even the initial introduction of flash storage due to its competitive cost. Eventually, however, your newest smartphone or iPod shipped with flash storage i... (more)
