NexGen – Storage Control for the Virtual Data Center

In this Taneja Group Product Profile, we examine the challenges facing the data center architect when dealing with consolidating, ever-denser, next generation workloads. Clearly, the most difficult challenges show up in the storage layer. With this in mind, a new generation of storage array providers are coming to market, aiming to scale and provide more performance, in a denser footprint than ever before. But it takes more than just throwing IO at the problem, and NexGen has a unique approach that is poised to go further than ever before in solving problems around enterprise storage.

Selecting Exchange Storage Infrastructure-3 Critical Questions for the Selection of Microsoft..(IBM)

SELECTING EXCHANGE STORAGE INFRASTRUCTURE - 3 Critical Questions for the Selection of Microsoft Exchange Storage Infrastructure

Building ideal Microsoft Exchange storage infrastructures has always been an exercise in uncertainty and complexity. Uncertainty in terms of unknown future growth in both capacity and performance demands, and complexity because Microsoft Exchange seems to blossom in storage demanding features and capabilities with each new release. Worse yet, Microsoft itself can sometimes exacerbate the situation, by seemingly injecting Exchange with more storage features and speaking in veiled terms about the usefulness of external storage versus direct attached storage. To be certain, the demands from Exchange mandate something better than direct attached disk (DAS or DAD). In fact, Exchange demands more than run of the mill networked storage (NAS or SAN). In this solution profile, we’ll examine the fundamental pressures found in Exchange environments, and take a look at why it takes more than just capacity, and more than just performance.

Why SSD Auto-Tiering Falls Short in Virtual Environments

Speakers:

Christine Taylor, Analyst, Taneja Group & Don Chouinard, Director of Product Marketing, Nexsan

Description:

Discover the dramatic differences between new SSD caching architectures and legacy auto-tiering techniques and how each impact performance in demanding virtualized environments. Auto-tiering falls short and you’ll learn why from Taneja Group Analyst, Christine Taylor. Nexsan follows to examine how unique SSD caching technologies in the NST5000 hybrid storage system meets the random I/O performance needs in complex and virtualized environments.

Dell combines faster and cheaper SSDs in one box, with automatic tiering

Many enterprise storage systems include two or more types of hard disk drives, with data automatically moved between those two tiers of storage. The same concept has now been applied to two types of SSDs.

Defining Software-defined…Storage

We've been doing quite a bit of work lately with software solutions in the virtual infrastructure.  VMware and some others have started an industry-wide shift in thinking toward the idea of software defined infrastructure services, including networking and storage - services that have traditionally been entirely dependent upon specialized hardware and control/operating systems.

Convergence and Hyperconvergence: Assessing the Difference

If you feel you are already being left behind as the era of data center convergence unfolds, fret not—it seems that the convergence we have seen so far is just the opening act. The real action is yet to come in the form of hyperconvergence.

Data-Aware Storage: Taming Data Sprawl Using Real-Time Analytics

Can we extract information from the storage array today? Yes, we can. But one has to use a myriad of tools from a variety of vendors and do a lot of heavy lifting to get some meaningful information out of storage.

HP ConvergedSystem: Solution Positioning for HP ConvergedSystem Hyper-Converged Products

Converged infrastructure systems – the integration of compute, networking, and storage - have rapidly become the preferred foundational building block adopted by businesses of all shapes and sizes. The success of these systems has been driven by an insatiable desire to make IT simpler, faster, and more efficient. IT can no longer afford the effort and time to custom build their infrastructure from best of breed D-I-Y components. Purpose built converged infrastructure systems have been optimized for the most common IT workloads like Private Cloud, Big Data, Virtualization, Database and Desktop Virtualization (VDI).

Traditionally these converged infrastructure systems have been built using a three-tier architecture; where compute, networking and storage, integrated at the rack level gave businesses the flexibility to cover the widest range of solution workload requirements while still using well-known infrastructure components. Emerging onto the scene recently has been a more modular approach to convergence using what we term Hyper-Convergence. With hyper-convergence, the three-tier architecture has been collapsed into a single system appliance that is purpose-built for virtualization with hypervisor, compute, and storage with advanced data services all integrated into an x86 industry-standard building block.

In this paper we will examine the ideal solution environments where Hyper-Converged products have flourished. We will then give practical guidance on solution positioning for HP’s latest ConvergedSystem Hyper-Converged product offerings.
