How does DDR4 SDRAM compare with DDR3 in terms of performance? What else has changed since DDR3?
Oracle FS1 Series Flash Storage System could threaten major SAN vendors and solid-state startups that target Oracle DB, application environments.
All-flash vendor SolidFire releases new arrays that scale to 100 nodes and petabytes of storage, claims less than $3 per usable GB price.
Connected Data's Transporter evolves from a SOHO device to an appliance that provides IT with a private cloud for file sync-and-share.
There's a lot of confusion when it comes to differentiating file sync-and-share products and cloud storage. Analyst Marc Staimer clears things up.
There are three ways to implement hybrid cloud storage, and the biggest difference between them comes down to management.
HP Helion adds DRaaS support for Oracle RAC and Red Hat clusters, facilitating database replication.
Eric Slack discusses DR testing today and the technologies that are improving users' ability to conduct regular, effective DR tests.
Paul Kirvan discusses the importance of creating an after-action report following a disaster recovery exercise and offers tips on creating the report.
Overland Storage releases 60- and 80-slot automated tape libraries in 6U rack and scales tape storage into petabyte range.
George Crump of Storage Switzerland discusses mobile device data protection, comparing products that perform file synchronization to products that perform an actual backup.
Can you describe the different issues involved with laptops, phones and tablets specifically, and mobile device backup in general?
Brocade adds Fibre Channel SAN extension switch and denser 16 Gbps card for its backbone director switch with an eye on moving data across distances.
IBM bundles Elastic Storage -- based on GPFS and Watson -- on its Power8 server and supports System z mainframes.
Red Hat's new Storage Server 3 software update adds support for snapshots and hot-button capabilities such as petabyte-scale capacity, SSDs and Hadoop.
Picking hardware with the right CPU features can improve server virtualization potential and boost critical VM performance.
There are many factors to consider when configuring a storage LUN to ensure it provides your VMs with the best possible performance.
Zombie VMs are real, but they don’t have to be as scary as they sound. With proper planning and the right tools you can prevent shambling hordes of wasteful servers.
DaaS has advantages, but don't discount cloud security concerns. Competitors, disgruntled employees and careless users can all put the data and desktops you host with DaaS providers at risk.
Application virtualization is a good way to deliver apps that don’t perform well in a local installations, but packaging and delivering virtual applications does come with some caveats.
DaaS providers tout hosted desktops as more efficient and secure than traditional VDI, but cloud security concerns persist. Companies looking to do DaaS have to trust their provider's staff and back-end security measures without first-hand insight.
