What's Inside

    • Put data dedupe to the test

      You can take your chances and believe the deduplication ratios and performance the vendors say you'll get, or you can do it right and test the systems yourself.

    • A dynamic four-tier storage design

      A comprehensive revamping of the storage environment at a major government agency shows how a tiered storage design can meet operational expectations without busting the budget.

    • CDP picks up a little steam

      Continuous data protection (CDP) application adoption is hardly a juggernaut, but our most recent survey shows a modest increase in the number of CDP users.

    • The time is right for efficient storage

      Storage budgets are lower this year, forcing storage managers to think creatively and act strategically.
