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.

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.

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.

The Big Role of Physical Backup Appliances

Virtual backup appliances (VBAs) are an instance of backup software running in a virtual machine on a general purpose server. VBAs are flexible and effective, and they are usually simple to deploy. Having said that, physical backup appliances (PBAs) have distinct advantages in several areas.
