Access "Latest technological innovations coming from Europe"

Published: 20 Oct 2012

The British are coming! Good old American ingenuity? Not quite; the Europeans might just be eating our technological lunch. Actually, it's all of Europe that's coming, not just my U.K. friends. There's a tidal wave of activity across the pond these days and, for a change, the Europeans are leading the way in a lot of areas. First, let's look at why it's suddenly attractive to be in Belgium opening a tech company when previously the only reason to be there was your fetish for beer made by monks. The exit money in tech startups has only really been on our shores--mostly in the NASDAQ. The fact that the market tanked and venture capitalists had to get second jobs at the local retail store meant there was no real inherent value the U.S. brought to entrepreneurs other than perhaps a larger talent pool to pull from. That excuse has drawn to a close with the Europeans spending huge amounts of money teaching their young how to acquire the skills necessary to compete in the technology world. They slowly began offering U.S. companies outsourced manufacturing services ... Access >>>

Features
    • Integrating iSCSI and FC storage

      Mixing iSCSI with Fibre Channel (FC) allows you to make more efficient use of installed storage capacity, but marrying the two protocols isn't without its challenges. Bringing iSCSI into existing FC SANs raises integration issues and leads to a somewhat more complex storage infrastructure that requires IP and FC knowledge, as well as the ability to manage and troubleshoot a multiprotocol storage environment.

    • Clustering ERP apps

      For mission-critical apps, availability is the key. Clustering those applications can ensure they stay up and running, but clustering often conjures up images of complex technologies and an environment that's fragile and complex. Still, for most companies, the benefits of clustering are profound enough to mitigate its risks.

    • Are you taking the iSCSI plunge?

      iSCSI has grown from a theoretical standard into a real technology with real storage products. Although once considered by many to be a Fibre Channel killer, iSCSI has gained a substantial foothold without necessarily displacing Fibre Channel. Companies of all sizes are taking the plunge, and the iSCSI juggernaut appears to be unstoppable.

    • From worm to worst by Stephen Foskett

      Everyone thinks about online data in the same way: You write it, read it, rewrite it and keep it forever. But many organizations have far more data that's written once, read a few times and kept alive forever. You might say this bulk data is "write once, read several times" (WORST), and it can bloat your storage environment.
