  • IBM launches Storwize V7000 storage virtualization platform

    IBM adds Storwize V7000 midrange storage virtualization platform, but it doesn't include data compression acquired from Storwize; also rolls out DS8800 enterprise system.

  • Using iSCSI storage with vSphere

    To realize the greatest benefits of a vSphere installation, you need networked storage. iSCSI is a good fit for vSphere; here's how to make it work.

  • Server virtualization ignites SAN project for explosives firm

    After implementing Microsoft Hyper-V server virtualization project, explosives company Austin Powder picks FalconStor NSS iSCSI SAN to improve efficiencies.

  • SAN consolidation with director-class switches

    A single director-class switch can replace multiple smaller switches while offering growth flexibility, high availability and a bevy of advanced features.

  • iSCSI in VMware environments: Best practices

    Learn why you should treat iSCSI as a storage network, consider using only software initiators in iSCSi and why VMware vSphere 4 is a perfect fit for iSCSI.

  • Infrastructure stack alliances bring benefits and drawbacks to enterprise data storage

    IT infrastructure stacks created by storage and networking vendors try to eliminate enterprise data storage deployment and purchasing complexity, but can give users more to consider.

  • Can we survive consolidation?

    Dedupe, server virtualization and data archivers are great tools to control storage capacity growth, but they treat the symptoms and don't provide true consolidation. Don't throw them out; use them better.

    Solid-state drive vendor Texas Memory Systems has analysts envisioning a hybrid storage tier with the purchase of assets from storage virtualization startup Incipient.

  • Storage Decisions Session Downloads: Managing Storage Networks Track (Chicago 2009)

    The core of any networked storage infrastructure is the basic hardware components: storage arrays and the fabric that links them to client servers and other services. Over the past few years, the trend has been to networks built around director-class switches -- but how those directors are used is the key to whether they're just consolidation points to replace core-edge architectures or if they actually put more intelligence into the network.

    Storage systems, too, have undergone considerable change. iSCSI storage arrays have steady increased their presence in data centers and remote locations, and as iSCSI technology and implementations mature, their impact is certain to become more profound. And on the leading edge of storage are systems that eschew or greatly reduce the role of spinning disks, replacing them with solid state devices that run cool, use far less power and take up less space. In this track, we'll look at the implications of these recent developments.
