    VMware VVOLs redefine storage

    VMware has been shaking up data storage for years, and its VVOLs technology just might revolutionize it.

VVOLs should make configuring and allocating storage easy while providing traditional networked storage services.

    Many companies use cloud storage services, but few have significant amounts of data in the cloud. Uneasiness about having data offsite, as well as security issues, still dog cloud storage.

  • The new face of scale-out storage

    There are plenty of new approaches to address ever-growing data needs, including scale-out vs. scale-up designs, the shift from hierarchical file systems to object storage, and the Hadoop Distributed File System.
