EMC Centera And The New Era of Disk Archival - Technology Brief

Disk-based archiving answers many challenges in the enterprise, but this strong new trend also creates many new questions for end users. Specifically, because of their distinct architectural approaches. Taneja Group sees some confusion regarding the question of whether to deploy a traditional file system or an object storage (e.g. Content Addressed Storage, or CAS) approach in support of an enterprise archival initiative.

NetApp Open Systems SnapVault

Data protection for remote offices has become a hot topic in the IT industry. New innovative technologies and approaches to data protection, like Wide Area Data Services (WDS) and next generation disk-based backup technologies, are challenging the need to do tape backup altogether in the remote office. Furthermore, the role and market position of traditional backup vendors, like Symantec/Veritas, EMC/Legato, CA and IBM, hang in the balance as the processes and approaches to data protection change in both the data center and the remote office.

Are You Making Money With Your Object Storage?

Object storage has long been pigeon-holed as a necessary overhead expense for long-term archive storageā€”a data purgatory one step before tape or deletion. We have seen many IT shops view object storage as something exotic they have to implement to meet government regulations rather than as a competitive strategic asset that can help their businesses make money.

Are You Making Money With Your Object Storage?

Object storage has long been pigeon-holed as a necessary overhead expense for long-term archive storage, a data purgatory one step before tape or deletion. In our experience, we have seen many IT shops view object storage more as something exotic they have to implement to meet government regulations rather than as a competitive strategic asset that can help their businesses make money.


Normally when companies invest in high-end IT assets like enterprise-class storage, they hope to re-coup those investments in big ways like accelerating the performance of market competitive applica-tions or efficiently consolidating data centers. Maybe they are even starting to analyze big data to find better ways to run the business. There are far more opportunities to be sure, but these kinds of “money-making” initiatives have been mainly associated with “file” and “block” types of storage – the primary storage commonly used to power databases, host office productivity applications, and build pools of shared resources for virtualization projects. But that’s about to change. If you’ve intentionally dismissed or just over-looked object storage it is time to take deeper look. Today’s object storage provides brilliant capabilities for enhancing productivity, creating global platforms and developing new revenue streams.


Object storage has been evolving from its historical second tier data dumping ground into a value-building primary storage platform for content and collaboration. And the latest high performance cloud storage solutions could transform the whole nature of enterprise data storage. To really exploit this new generation of object storage, it is important to understand not only what it is and how it has evolved, but to start thinking about how to harness its emerging capabilities in building net new business.
