Storage Technology Definitions

  • D

    data center migration plan

    A data center migration plan is a strategy created by an organization to migrate a data center with minimal downtime.

  • data compression

    Data compression is a reduction in the number of bits needed to represent data.

  • data deduplication

    Deduplication retains one unique data instance to reduce storage and bandwidth consumed by remote backups, replication and disaster recovery.

  • data destruction

    Data destruction is the process of destroying data stored on tapes, hard disks and other forms of electronic media so that it is completely unreadable and cannot be accessed or used for unauthorized purposes.

  • data life cycle management (DLM)

    Data life cycle management (DLM) is a policy-based approach to managing the flow of an information system's data throughout its life cycle: from creation and initial storage to the time when it becomes obsolete and is deleted.

  • data management platform (DMP)

    A data management platform (DMP), also called a unified data management platform (UDMP) is a centralized computing system for collecting, integrating and managing data large data sets from disparate sources.

  • data migration

    Data migration is the process of transferring data between data storage systems, data formats or computer systems.

  • data reduction in primary storage (DRIPS)

    Data reduction in primary storage (DRIPS) is the application of capacity optimization techniques for data that is in active use.

  • data retention

    Data retention, also called records retention, is the continued storage of an organization's data for compliance or business reasons. 

  • data storage

    In a computer, storage is the place where data is held in an electromagnetic or optical form for access by a computer processor.

  • Datera Inc.

    Datera created Elastic Data Fabric, a block storage platform aimed at cloud service providers and enterprises that want to build a private cloud on premises.

  • DDR SDRAM (double data rate SDRAM)

    DDR SDRAM (double data rate SDRAM) is synchronous dynamic RAM (SDRAM) that can theoretically improve memory clock speed to at least 200 MHz*. It activates output on both the rising and falling edge of the system clock rather than on just the rising edge, potentially doubling output.

  • Dedicated Cloud

    Dedicated Cloud is a cloud service model available in VMware's vCloud Hybrid Service.

  • deep archive

    A deep archive is a type of data archiving that refers to a storage location for data that will likely never be accessed again, but can't be deleted.

  • defragmenter

    A defragmenter is a software utility that rearranges the fragments or discontiguous parts of each file stored on a computer hard disk so that the small, empty storage spaces adjacent to fragments can be used, effectively creating new storage space and possibly making file access faster.
