Sponsored by NetApp - Enterprise storage systems have evolved through four distinct stages. First, there were monolithic storage arrays. These gave way to modular SAN/NAS systems and distributed storage networks. Next, advanced software techniques led to storage virtualization, with storage volumes abstracted from the underlying physical devices. Finally, in the current era, cloud storage services have emerged that combine virtualization with unprecedented economies of scale. See More
Sponsored by Dell - When it comes to governance and compliance, much of the IT staff’s effort is often focused on individual systems. Administrators work meticulously to ensure that mail servers, file servers, database servers, and other resources adhere to both internal security standards and regulatory requirements. The one thing that each of these systems has in common however, is its reliance on Active Directory.
