The market for scale-out data protection solutions took a step forward last week at the coming out party for HyperScale offerings at Commvault GO (the HyperScale offerings were announced last month).
The latest IBM Spectrum Virtualize release (8.1.1) extends IBM’s storage capabilities into the public cloud.
Once upon a time, when clouds were young, we thought that all our fancy storage arrays would shortly sport built-in cloud tiering mechanisms.
As comfortable 65-70 degree weather blankets New England here as we near end of summer, flying into Las Vegas for VMworld at 110 degrees seemed like dropping into hell.
Modern organizations want simple data protection that is easily accessible to VM and application administrators. This fact was highlighted in a recent Taneja Group Survey, where over 40% of participants indicated “simple to manage” is the most critical data protection factor when selecting a data protection solution.
The theme at VeeamON 2017 last week was “availability for the always on enterprise”. While the subject of “availability” was very familiar to attendees, the parade of announcements that followed made it clear that a new day is dawning at Veeam – one that stretches far beyond their roots in virtual data protection.
HPE has publicly rolled out their “The Machine” prototype, carrying 160TB of fabric-attached memory, 1280 ARM cores and 100Gb/s fiber interconnects. Ok, so this is a whole lot of memory! But it’s not just about memory.
I’ve been immersed in “Open” for the last two weeks here in Boston, attending both Red Hat Summit 2017 and then OpenStack Summit. There are quite a few things worth paying attention to, especially if you are an enterprise IT shop still wondering how your inevitable cloud (and services) transformation is really going to play out, including accelerating application migration to containers and the rise of platform Management as a Service.
What’s a Cloud Converged system? It is really what us naive people thought hybrid storage was all about all along. Yet until now no high performance enterprise class storage ever actually delivered it. But now, Oracle’s latest ZFS Storage Appliance, the ZS5, comes natively integrated with Oracle Cloud storage. What does that mean? On-premise ZS5 Storage Object pools now extend organically into Oracle Cloud storage (which is also made up of ZS storage) – no gateway or third party software required.
The healthcare industry is facing tremendous data challenges as the medical community evolves to support rapid growth in digital medical imaging, new government regulations and improvements in patient care.
