  • Learn all about primary storage optimization

    Data Storage Handbook -  This handbook will show storage administrators how they can reduce their companies' primary storage footprint in order to leverage the capacity and cost savings provided by data reduction throughout the data lifecycle.

  • Learn all about self-service storage

    Data Storage Handbook -  Self-service storage allows the storage administrator to take advantage of all the capabilities of virtualized storage and respond to user needs for storage volumes more rapidly than ever.

  • Learn all about SANs

    Data Storage Handbook -  Before a SAN administrator can size their SAN, they need to know how much storage capacity and performance they need, what SAN protocol to choose, and the proper RAID level for the SAN array.

  • Learn all about NAS

    Data Storage Handbook -  Storage can be added to a LAN through dedicated disk-based storage units called network-attached storage (NAS) devices. In this handbook you'll learn about NAS systems, NAS device interconnects, NAS implementation tips and RFPs for NAS systems.

  • Learn all about RAID storage

    Data Storage Handbook -  This handbook describes the different levels of RAID technology and explains how storage administrators can choose the appropriate RAID level.

  • Learn all about LUNs

    Data Storage Handbook -  A LUN is the unique address for a SCSI device or a virtual hard disk partition in a RAID configuration. This handbook tells how to manage and partition LUNs.

  • Learn all about data deduplication

    Data Storage Handbook -  This handbook takes an in-depth look at data deduplication technology and offers advice on how to evaluate data deduplication products.

  • Learn all about iSCSI and Fibre Channel SANs

    Data Storage Handbook -  This handbook compares Fibre Channel SAN and iSCSI SAN technologies, provides tips on how to enhance iSCSI performance, and discusses how to make a SAN highly available.

  • Learn all about SATA

    Data Storage Handbook -  This handbook offers three related SATA tips which compare SATA to SAS and SCSI and provides advice on striking the right balance between them.
