Data management tools from searchStorage.com

  • SDS products boost data preservation, accessibility

    Feature -Software-defined storage is among innovations that can ease long-term data retention with reliable access to data as hardware changes over time.

  • Software-defined storage vendors must learn from their past

    Opinion -Software-defined storage has promise, but hypervisor and SDS vendors are making some of the same mistakes as their storage ancestors.

  • Managing storage for virtual servers

    E-Zine -It's easy to understand why server virtualization has become so popular among IT admins. Virtual servers are flexible, mobile and can be deployed or decommissioned rapidly. However, managing storage for virtual environments can be difficult. Many shops struggle with managing storage for virtual servers, and even more could realize better performance with more sophisticated management. Storage management tools for virtual environments can capture and record data from hypervisors; extend visibility into storage, network and applications; and provide trending analysis to help keep resources in balance. These tools can help you take a proactive approach to storage management, reduce costs and improve performance.
