  • VMware VVOLs redefine storage

    VMware has been shaking up data storage for years, and its VVOLs technology just might revolutionize it. The newly introduced VMware VVOLs have vendors scrambling to support it or risk becoming irrelevant in the virtual machine storage market. VVOLs should make configuring and allocating storage easy while providing traditional networked storage services.

    Many companies use cloud storage services, but few have significant amounts of data in the cloud. Uneasiness about having data offsite, as well as security issues, still dog cloud storage. Hybrid implementations pairing on-premises storage with cloud storage are becoming popular, with vendors offering a variety of products and services.

    Now in its 10th year, the Storage magazine/SearchStorage.com Quality Awards poll readers about the service and reliability of data storage products. Read the results of our latest survey on enterprise-class arrays.

  • NoSQL technologies take on rising tide of big data

    For decades, IT managers, developers and business executives had limited options when shopping for database technologies: Relational databases were universally built on top of the SQL programming language. It was SQL or nothing.

    Now, thanks to Internet giants Yahoo, Google, Facebook, Amazon.com and eBay and the need for massively scalable Web applications, a rivaling branch of products that avoid SQL development tenets and have more flexible designs has emerged: NoSQL. But it doesn't mean the curtains are closing on SQL. In this issue of Business Information, we drill down on the facts surrounding NoSQL databases, tapping into the experiences of savvy startups and other companies whose needs led them to NoSQL technologies. But is NoSQL right for your organization? IT consultant Joshua Greenbaum poses some no-nonsense questions for would-be shoppers.

    The April issue also has tips and insight on other trends sweeping the IT landscape.
