Survey: Season of the switch

A majority of recent survey respondents are ready for new or updated storage networks. In Storage magazine's 2008 priorities survey, 72% of those surveyed said they plan to expand or upgrade their storage network this year. The biggest group of those respondents, 31%, will make the change by adding switches to existing fabrics. Thirteen percent will add ports to currently installed switches, while 9% are in the market for replacement switches this year. --Christine Cignoli Click Here for a PDF of this Survey.

  • Arrays score with both file and block storage

  • Case study: NY Mets add deduplication to roster

    With an extensive lineup of corporate data, photos and video, the Mets needed to recruit some backup help. The call went out for low-cost disk backup configuration, including deduplication and compression to reduce the amount of data to be backed up, as well as WAN optimization/acceleration to speed up the replication process. After much consideration, Data Domain was drafted for the job.

  • Ask the Expert:RAID rebuilds

    I run four 400GB SATA drives configured with RAID 5. I want to replace them with four 750GB drives. Can I rebuild and then swap individual drives?
