  • Object storage vendors quantify data center benefits

    E-Handbook -In this handbook, SearchStorage contributors outline the benefits object storage can bring to today's data centers and storage architectures. From price point to efficiency and durability, there are many good reasons to consider implementing object storage. It's important for IT pros to understand how the technology functions, why its metadata and global deduplication capabilities matter, and how its massive scalability and multi-tenancy characteristics can help you redefine your data center so it's less reliant on technologies ranging from tape to a block-and-file storage.

    Companies that arrived early to the object storage party have been able to find ways to creatively integrate it into big data projects and combine it with file sync and share in order to eliminate the need for a public cloud. There are many decisions to be made when getting started with object storage, and this collection of expert content can help you understand how and when object storage makes sense for you.

  • Deal with data capacity challenges

    Feature -Data capacity challenges -- and the anxiety they bring -- result from the rapid explosion of data growth combined with barely increasing budgets.

  • Object store integration vexing in block and file world

    Feature -Object stores offer scalability that traditional storage systems cannot match. The challenge is making them work in a block- and file-based world.

  • NAND flash technology faces uncertain future

    Feature -Memory channel flash, 3D, NVMe and NVDIMM are among the recent developments in flash storage technology that may soon replace NAND flash.

  • Flash forward: What's next for flash storage technology

    E-Zine -Emerging flash technologies target capacity, reliability and cost, while the line between storage and memory continues to blur. Over the past couple of years, we've seen four major developments in flash storage technology: 3D architectures, which will allow denser NAND chips; memory channel flash, which uses a server's DIMM slot and bus to add solid-state storage; nonvolatile memory express (NVMe), which offers a more efficient way to tap into a server's PCIe bus to wring out more performance; and nonvolatile dual in-line memory module (NVDIMM), which adds a nonvolatile tier to system RAM. All of these techs are available now. This issue of Storage magazine outlines the best use cases and the advantages/disadvantages of each flash storage technology.

    Each new version of VMware's vSphere introduces new storage capabilities and features to support virtual servers. This issue explains vSphere's latest storage stuff, including new capacities, new performance controls and other storage-related management features. We'll also look at how storage vendors plan to support the new features.

    It doesn't matter what industry you're in, the size of your company or whether your shop is fully virtualized -- the odds are that you struggle to control or keep up capacity growth. With more devices than ever creating data and more uses for that data, many companies are reluctant to deep-six anything. Luckily, there are new and cost-effective ways to cope with all that data without breaking the bank.

  • Flash storage market remains a tsunami

    Opinion -The flash storage market is poised for rapid growth into enterprise data centers as costs drop and solid-state drive density and capacity expands.
