News in review: Amazon Glacier puts the freeze on tape

Ten years ago, a storage executive at an early disk-based backup vendor said to me, “I’ve sold $100 million in tape systems that no one wanted to buy.” Fast-forward to today, and enterprises are still begrudgingly buying tape and tape drives. However, new entrants in the cloud archiving market may finally signal the beginning of the end for tape in the enterprise.

Public cloud storage options: Determining what data to move

How do you determine which workloads and use cases are suitable for public cloud storage? The cloud may look attractive from a cost and scalability standpoint, but certain types of workloads and storage use cases are much better served in the cloud than others.

Turn to in-memory processing when performance matters

In-memory processing can improve data mining and analysis, and other dynamic data processing uses. When considering in-memory, however, look out for data protection, cost and bottlenecks.

OneCloud Software: DR For the Masses

With the advent of server virtualization, many adopters erroneously think that disaster recovery (DR) is a problem of the past. They cite the ability of the hypervisors to replace the two most common yet imperfect DR choices: 1) infrastructure replication to a secondary replica site – fast to restore but very expensive, or 2) economical tape backup with off-site long-term storage – economical but slow to recover from.

The reality is that while server virtualization has certainly helped the industry get closer to simpler and less expensive DR products, DR still remains one of the major challenges for IT. This is especially true for applications that fall somewhere between the most mission critical where RTOs and RPOs of a few seconds is needed (and cost is often no object) and those that find RTOs and RPOs of a day or two to be adequate. Today, DR products available for these “intermediate” applications are few and far between, especially when overall cost of DR is considered.  

The missing piece so far has been a cost-effective DR solution with excellent RTO and RPO for the majority of business applications -- without requiring a secondary site. OneCloud steps into the gap by replacing that expensive site with the hyper-scale public cloud. This Profile will discuss how OneCloud works to extend the primary data center onto the cloud, and how this impacts the ease and speed of VM recovery.

Hadoop Storage Options: Time to Ditch DAS?

Hadoop is immensely popular today because it makes big data analysis cheap and simple: you get a cluster of commodity servers and use their processors as compute nodes to do the number crunching, while their internal direct attached storage (DAS) operate as very low cost storage nodes.
