Abstract: Taneja Group Multi-Client Study (MCS) on Storage Acceleration and Performance Technologies

Taneja Group’s latest multi-client sponsored research study addresses the young and rapidly evolving market for storage acceleration and performance solutions. This study provides vendor sponsors with key insights into the current uptake and usage of storage acceleration and performance technologies, along with user-perceived value of key features and capabilities. The study findings will help vendors understand how to overcome sales and deployment barriers, improve and sharpen the positioning of their products/solutions, and determine where they should invest going forward, based on the technologies and use cases that will be most important to buyers over the next 2-3 years.

Extreme Applications in the Enterprise Drive Parallel File System Adoption

With the advent of big data and cloud-scale delivery, companies are racing to deploy cutting-edge services that include “extreme” applications like massive voice and image processing or complex fi-nancial analysis modeling that can push storage systems to their limits. Examples of some high visi-bility and big market impacting solutions include applications based on image pattern recognition at large scale and financial risk management based on decision-making at high speed.

 
These ground-breaking solutions, made up of very different activities but with similar data storage challenges, create incredible new lines of business representing significant revenue potential. Every day here at Taneja Group we see more and more mainstream enterprises exploring similar “extreme service” opportunities. But when enterprise IT data centers take stock of what it is required to host and deliver these new services, it quickly becomes apparent that traditional clustered and even scale-out file systems - of the kind that most enterprise data centers (or cloud providers) have racks and racks of - simply can’t handle the performance requirements.

 
There are already great enterprise storage solutions for applications that need either raw throughput, high capacity, parallel access, low latency, or high availability – maybe even for two or three of those at a time. But when an “extreme” application needs all of those requirements at the same time, only supercomputing type storage in the form of parallel file systems provides a functional solution. The problem is that most commercial enterprises simply can’t afford or risk basing a line of business on an expensive research project.


The good news is that some storage vendors have been industrializing former supercomputing storage technologies, hardening massively parallel file systems into commercially viable solutions. This opens the door for revolutionary services creation, enabling mainstream enterprise datacenters to support the exploitation of new extreme applications.

Taneja Group and Infostor: Big Data Survey 2012

Taneja Group and InfoStor jointly ran a survey asking IT managers about their big data experiences and roadmaps. We concluded that there is a great deal of uncertainty around big data: what it is, how to manage it, and if it is even in the IT domain rather than specialized application administrators.

Storing and managing large volumes of data certainly involves IT. However, “big data” is its own class: large data sets that are subjected to ongoing analytics and/or massive re-use. Some big data is structured into databases; most of it is unstructured. Big data operations continuously act upon large and growing volumes of data, which generates fast and frequent data movement between servers, networks and storage. Big data analytics in particular need fast and large feedback loops for decision-making as the specialized software tools analyze and reform data into a variety of views, reports and reformed data sets. 

IT is rarely involved at the analytics administration level, but they are very involved at the storage level. Big data needs both high capacity and high performance, which requires storage with high capacity disk and the ability to process storage IO very quickly. It must also be highly available since big data by definition is active and important data. And it should be cost-effective as well, though it will not inexpensive.

[Taneja Group discusses scale-out storage as a best practice solution to big data analytics in our report: “Big Data, Big Storage: Scale-Out NAS for Big Data Environments.” (http://bit.ly/UGCVjm)]

The Move to the Cloud - A Taneja Group eBook

eBook on Cloud Storage -- 6 Critical Questions and Answers You Need to Know

Cloud storage can be a beast to wrangle. Deciding which applications to move into the cloud, understanding how to select and deal with a cloud storage provider, deciding on cloud storage solutions – none of these are easy. Is it worth it?

It's worth it, but it’s vital that you do into it with your eyes wide open. There are many, many questions you need to ask before entrusting your data to a cloud storage provider. Questions like:

#1. What is your system uptime?

#2. What data availability service levels do you support?

#3. How easy is it to move my data to another provider?

#4. What data protection service levels do you provide?

#5. What is your level of performance?

#6. What applications can I best host in the cloud?
