  • cache (computing)

    Definition: Learn what cache is and how it’s used to shorten data access times, reduce latency and improve input/output (I/O).

  • Big data storage architecture combines speed and capacity

    A big data storage architecture needs to consider scaling, I/O balancing mechanisms and high-performance throughput capabilities.

  • Enterprise storage architecture must re-invent with flash, cloud

    IBM Fellow, CTO and strategist Andrew Walls says the company must continuously 're-invent the SAN' with the influx of flash, cloud and software-defined 'elastic' storage.

  • Purchase criteria for all-flash storage arrays

    All-flash storage arrays share the common trait of being fast, but once you get past the speed, there's still a lot to consider.

  • Low expectations yield disappointing technology ideas

    Warmed-over or half-baked technology ideas might produce profits for the vendors that manufacture them, but they won't solve storage puzzles.

  • Shopping for data storage systems not getting any simpler

    You may feel like a mouse in a maze if you're shopping for data storage systems these days.

  • Moving target: Endpoint backup

    Mobile workers are now accessing, creating and modifying data on ultra-portable devices such as smartphones, tablets and phablets. Most companies are still deciding on tools and strategies to back up these endpoint devices, so the risk of losing important information is real and rising. We tell you what endpoint backup alternatives you now have to avoid a devastating loss.

    There’s more awareness than ever that it’s necessary to have a viable disaster recovery (DR) plan in place. But keeping a DR scenario up to date and ensuring that all key systems remain adequately protected is difficult without using specialized tools that keep tabs on DR readiness.

    Moving data from one array to another or even to the cloud has traditionally been a difficult, time-consuming and costly process. But new tools, technologies and processes make the job easier and get it done faster without costing a fortune.

  • Keys to a painless data migration process

    Moving data from array to array has always been a difficult process, but new techs and techniques make your data migration process easier than ever.

  • Why monitoring your data protection policy is like herding cats

    Ensuring your data protection policy will actually work when needed may require the use of multiple monitoring tools.

  • RADOS (Reliable Autonomic Distributed Object Store)

    Reliable Autonomic Distributed Object Store (RADOS) is an object storage service with the ability to scale to thousands of hardware devices by making use of management software that runs on each of the individual nodes. RADOS is an integral part of the Ceph distributed storage system.
