IBM Makes the V-word Respectable Again - Opinion

The word “virtualization” came into vogue a few years ago with the usual fanfare, hype and the expectation that it would solve all the horrendous storage management problems the industry was facing. Virtualization was to be the cure for all ills.

MaXXan ships MVX320 - Company Profile

MaXXan this month became the first vendor to actually GA an intelligent director class product. While the architecture is sound and the product has most of the required features for such a product, and the use of standard OTS network processors, rather than custom designed ASICs gives them the ability to upgrade and ship faster than others, MaXXan finds itself in a very interesting position.

Cloverleaf Intelligent Storage Networking System - Product Profile

Over the course of 2003, the concept of placing “intelligent” storage management in the heart of the networked fabric has shifted from longstanding industry pipedream into deployed reality. On the end user side, this long-awaited reality is driven largely by an unprecedented requirement to get control over heterogeneous environments and budget-busting management inefficiencies.

Cloverleaf Delivers Muscle To Storage Integrators - Opinion

Though it may hurt the brain to contemplate, the mission-critical design requirements of the enterprise storage integrator exceed those of the individual enterprise data center by several magnitudes. The reason is simple: With dozens or hundreds of customer environments at any given time, economic success depends on bullet-proofing all aspects of the storage architecture against random acts of unreliability.

Candera: Storage Tiers and ATA - Technology Brief

Taneja Group sees many end users deploying multiple classes of storage devices, or “storage tiers” in order to increase the economies and overall utilization of their storage environment. In most of these cases, we see users leveraging lower costs ATA and serial ATA (SATA) arrays alongside more expensive fibre-channel storage fabrics.

EMC Invista: The Power of Network-Based Virtualization - Technology in Depth

There was a time when virtualization was one of the dirty words in the storage industry. Who can forget the enormous expectations around virtualization that existed several years ago? That hype only fizzled, and the broken promise of virtualization left many storage managers disappointed.

QLogic Buys Troika - Opinion

On October 19, 2005 QLogic announced its intention to buy Troika Networks for $36.5M. Based on the calls we have received thus far it is apparent that vendors and users alike are wondering why QLogic did this and what the implications are for users long term. Here is how we see it.

Kashya KBX 5000 Data protection Appliance

We have seen several key advances in the past year in the technology category known as Continuous Data Technologies (CDT). Defined at the highest level, all CDT solutions enable very granular data capture and the subsequent presentation of application data across Any Point in Time (APIT). This new approach stands in sharp contrast to the historical Point in Time (PIT) based copy-creating technologies that have dominated the data center, including traditional snapshots.

SAN Symphony 6.0

Server virtualization today is a hot topic. Enterprises everywhere are rapidly implementing virtualized servers in a quest for better resource utilization, simplified management, and a more flexible infrastructure. Over 85% of these virtualized servers use a SAN and a shared storage model. Unfortunately, server virtualization with shared storage exacerbates pre-existing storage management issues, and in many cases creates new challenges not present in a purely physical world.

IBM System Storage SAN Volume Controller 4.1 - Solution Profile

Storage virtualization has come a long way in the past five years. After a false start in 2001, fraught with inflated expectations and product deficiencies, the category fell into infamy. Several vendors disappeared, many others repositioned themselves to focus on the Small Medium Business (SMB) space and yet others reinvented themselves with completely different products. Only one company stayed true to the promise of virtualization from the very beginning. That is IBM. With the SAN Volume Controller (SVC) product, launched in July, 2003, the company nurtured the market, in spite of the fact that many in the market didn’t even want to say the V-word anymore. IBM persisted, albeit mostly with their own customers, fundamentally because the customer could see the potential of storage virtualization and could count on IBM to support them through the early learning cycles.

Emulex 765-S: High Performance SPAID-based Storage Virtualization at a Disruptive Price Pt - Profile

This spring, Emulex announced availability of the Model 765-S Intelligent Services Platform.  We believe that the Emulex 765-S Intelligent Services Platform has the potential to be quite disruptive to the pricing environment for storage virtualization products. Traditionally, most storage virtualization products have had high-end price points, limiting their adoption to core data centers and the largest of enterprises.  When paired with LSI’s StoreAge SVM software, the platform represents a full-fledged split-path storage virtualization solution with excellent performance.

Building the Virtual Infrastructure with DataCore SANsymphony-V

There's a ball and chain hanging on your virtualization projects - and it's that pesky storage stuff. Storage that isn't flexible, can't adapt to changes, is wrapped with poor provisioning practices, and where sheer physicality and lack of abstraction seem to get in the way of every virtual server task. There's no secret in the fact we think storage virtualization can set the virtual infrastructure free, but let's take a look at one vendor's product, and how it tackles some of those issues in the Hyper-V infrastructure.
