Lowering Overall Storage Costs By Implementing A Long Term Data Preservation Strategy

To best optimize your infrastructure for cost-effective storage, you need to understand your blended cost to store your primary and secondary data, not just the $/GB cost to store each data tier independently.  An effective storage tiering strategy will move you towards the blended optimal average cost of storage, lowering costs signfiicantly without requiring major changes to existing processes and infrastructure.  In this Solution Profile, we discuss the concept of creating a tiered storage infraustructure using ProStor InfiniVault, a removable disk storage system, that promises to reduce primary storage capacity and energy usage, improve backup times and lower overall backup costs, and create a cost-effective, long-term strategy for data preservation that can be used to meet both business and regulatory mandates.

Riverbed Raises the Ante Again in WDS with RiOS 5.0

In distributed enterprises, a majority of employees work outside of major data center locations.  Mobile workers with laptops may attach to corporate networks through the internet from anywhere, and remote office and branch office (ROBO) workers typically require a certain amount of IT infrastructure to meet their local computing requirements.  If there’s one thing that all of these workers share, it’s a desire for high performance computing.  This gave rise to the wide area data services (WDS) market in the 2004-2005 time frame, with its promise of providing LAN-like performance across wide area networks (WANs).  WAN acceleration products, which shipped earlier than 2004, really provided a subset of the functionality that WDS products do, and WDS solutions present a much more comprehensive approach to solving the WAN performance issue for distributed enterprises.
