Software Defined/Virtualized Infrastructure

Includes Software-Defined Infrastructure (compute, storage and networking), Virtual Infrastructure technologies (server virtualization, desktop virtualization, I/O virtualization), and the interplay between these technologies and traditional storage. Covers different types of Software-Defined Storage, such as Scale-out NAS, in depth.

Taneja Group has been at the forefront of assessing and characterizing virtualization and software-defined infrastructure technologies since they began to emerge in the early 2000’s. Virtualization has caused one of the most disruptive technology shifts in data center infrastructure in the last 15 years. While its basic principles may not be new, virtualization has never been so widespread, nor has it been applied to as many platforms as it is in today. Taneja Group analysts combine expert knowledge of server and storage virtualization with keen insight into their impact on all aspects of IT operations and management to give our clients the research and analysis required to take advantage of this “virtual evolution.” We focus on the interplay of server and client virtualization technologies with storage, and study the impact on performance, security and management of the IT infrastructure. Our virtualization practice covers all virtual infrastructure components: server virtualization/hypervisors, desktop/client virtualization, storage virtualization, and network and I/O virtualization.

IBM Acquires Diligent

On April 18, IBM announced the acquisition of Diligent Technologies for an undisclosed amount.  Diligent is a storage capacity optimization (SCO) vendor, best known for its enterprise data de-duplication and virtual tape library (VTL) solutions.  Data de-duplication is fast becoming a mainstream technology, and our information indicates strong purchase intent over the next 12 months across both the small and medium as well as large enterprise markets.  In our Emerging Market Forecast for Next Generation Data Protection Technologies published in December 2006, we stated that if a vendor did not offer SCO technologies in their storage product line by 2008, they would not be able to sell VTL or other secondary storage solutions effectively.  This has come to pass even more dramatically than we had forecast.

Automating Data Migration with Incipient

Periodic data migration is a universal activity across enterprises; the larger the enterprise, the more frequent the activity. Yet few tools exist to automate and nondisruptively migrate data. Storage virtualization technologies offer one answer to the challenge. In this technology validation, Taneja Group conducts hands-on testing of Incipient's network-based storage virtualization software as a data migration solution.
