  • Cloud storage tools manage data stored in the ether

    As much as we might want to assume an "out of sight, out of mind" attitude about the data we ship to cloud storage services, the truth is that it needs nearly as much attention as data stored onsite. Some services offer basic tools to manage cloud storage, while others are more sophisticated, but to keep a finger on the pulse of cloud storage, you may need a third-party app.

    Storage networks receive little attention -- until they become performance bottlenecks in the IT infrastructure. Server virtualization and high-speed flash storage are putting unprecedented strains on storage networks. Our second feature tells you how to unclog those arteries.

    For the first time in nine years, Fujitsu garnered enough responses in our Quality Awards service and reliability survey for enterprise arrays. That didn’t just put Fujitsu in among the other finalists; it put the newcomer in the winner's circle.
