  • Seven ways to unlock the power of all types of unstructured data

    New storage services have emerged to help IT pros maintain and deliver access to ever-larger and more valuable data sets, particularly all types of unstructured data. These include data sets for big data analysis, DevOps, storage self-service and cost-control purposes, among other things. This data explosion is the result of several trends, including growth of files and file systems, machine-generated data streams, web-scale application exhaust, endless file versioning, finer-grained backups and rollback snapshots. If you're architecting a new approach to storage and dealing with various types of unstructured data storage at a global enterprise scale, we have seven advanced storage capabilities you should consider.

    The on-demand nature of the cloud has not only changed the way enterprises consume and pay for IT resources, it has profoundly altered our understanding and expectations of IT services and infrastructure in general. More enterprises expect to obtain the features they want when they want them and to pay for those features only when and if they need them. This has been acutely felt by vendors and consumers alike in the fragmented and dynamic storage market. It has altered how storage providers deliver expected core features, such as deduplication, replication, compression and encryption, and has led to the development of niche products that meet application-specific needs and use cases. This issue clarifies the new and evolving data storage landscape to help you buy and deploy the right storage products with the features you require and more easily acquire the products you may need in the future.

We’ve gathered up expert advice and tips from professionals like you so that the answers you need are always available.

  • The future of flash storage: Is NVMe right for your enterprise?

    Cracks in the SAS and SATA protocols started to appear with the rise of SSDs and the exponential performance improvements they delivered over HDD technology. This led to the development of the nonvolatile memory express protocol to exploit flash's potential. As the future of flash storage, NVMe addresses many of SAS and SATA's shortcomings by, among other things, connecting storage devices closer to the processor to reduce latency and introducing parallelism using multiple I/O queues and greater queue depth to match flash's ability to process many requests in parallel -- something SAS and SATA drives can't do. NVMe SSD adoption is leading to new storage architectures and helping give rise to disaggregated approaches to storage. NVMe-based devices come at a cost premium, however. Find out if and when you should move to NVMe and what the best use cases are for the future of flash storage and your enterprise.

    Monetizing malware through ransomware has led to massive financial losses for companies worldwide. Ransomware is a megabillion-dollar industry and is becoming more sophisticated all the time. Although data backup restoration remains the best way to deal with a ransomware attack, it's no longer foolproof. It's time to rethink your organization's backup and restoration processes, acknowledge the hidden dangers of replication and revisit your permissions model to strengthen your defenses against the ransomware threat. Here's how.

    Economic espionage, the theft of intellectual property and trade secrets, is another threat U.S. companies face. It can be rogue employees with access to company information doing the stealing, but most often, cybercriminals commit the crime. Effectively combatting economic espionage requires implementing a range of IT measures covered in this article.
