Storage Essentials for SMBs

SMBs have the same fundamental data center and storage needs as their counterparts at larger organizations—efficient infrastructure and smart data management and data protection. But, often have limited IT resources to achieve those goals. But, after years of getting lost in the shuffle,the pressing needs of SMBs and midmarket organizations are finally getting the attention they deserve. No longer are next-generation storage management solutions designed specifically for the needs of the enterprise. Smaller companies can now reap the same benefits as those of a larger organization—and without breaking the bank. However, this implementation of new technologies means changes—change in product, changes in policy, and changes in process. With limited staff and resources, IT pros at all medium-sized businesses could use a heads-up on the potential obstacles to anticipate—and how to overcome them with the least impact to an already overworked team.

State of the Industry: Survey Reveals Barriers and Opp for Development and Testing in the Cloud

Companies are using their testing and development (Test/Dev) infrastructures more and more as a proving ground for implementing shared infrastructure and private cloud environments, according to our recent survey of senior IT managers at North American firms. Conducted in mid-to-late 2009 on behalf of Platform Computing, Inc., the survey revealed that the top challenge of running Test/Dev environments is the need to manage virtual and physical resources separately, with most respondents also indicating that virtualization on its own does not address their most important Test/Dev infrastructure challenges. The Taneja Group surveyed 83 senior IT managers across the banking, government, manufacturing, telecommunications, software, health and pharmaceutical industries. We examined current challenges of managing Test/Dev environments, as well as the opportunities for server virtualization and cloud computing solutions to address those problems.
