Riverbed and EMC Deliver Capacity-Optimized Cloud Storage for Backup, Recovery, Archiving, and DR

Many innovative enterprises are turning to cloud storage to meet their data protection demands. Cloud storage promises an elastic “pay-as-you-go” storage pool for backups and archives, which not only reduces expensive up-front backup disk and tape costs, but eliminates the need to maintain them off-site. This paper explores the factors that are driving the move to cloud storage and then introduces a solution from Riverbed and EMC that enables organizations to perform cloud backup and replication at LAN-like performance that is as reliable and secure as local disk or tape at a lower cost.

EMC Atmos 2.1 Accelerates Cloud Value

Object storage is certainly a hot topic, and it's rising above it's old data retention "jail" perception. And for good reasons. We think due to cloud storage building and adoption, increasingly mobile users and distributed apps, the benefits of active archiving and retaining ever bigger data sets that having a solid object storage strategy becomes significantly important going into 2013. EMC is aiming to be a key part of that object strategy - today releasing Atmos 2.1 making wider adoption not only possible, but more profitable for both in-house cloud builders and service providers.

Extreme Enterprise Applications Drive Parallel File System Adoption

With the advent of big data and cloud-scale delivery, companies are racing to deploy cutting-edge services. “Extreme” applications like massive voice and image processing or complex financial analysis modeling that can push storage systems to their limits. Examples of some high visibility solutions include large-scale image pattern recognition applications and financial risk management based on high-speed decision-making. These ground-breaking solutions, made up of very different activities but with similar data storage challenges, create incredible new lines of business representing significant revenue potential.

In the Cloud Era, The Era of Convergence Is Upon Us

The era of IT infrastructure convergence is upon us. Every major vendor has some type of offering under this category. Startups and smaller players are also "talking" convergence. But what exactly is convergence and why are all the vendors so interested in getting included in this category? We will explain below the history of convergence, what it is, what it is not, what benefits accrue from such systems, who the players are, and who is leading the pack in true convergence.
