Ten questions to help compare cloud storage services

So you've decided to pursue public cloud storage for a particular data set and use case. If you're a developer building a Web-enabled application, then you'll likely be interested in a cloud object store such as Amazon S3 or OpenStack Object Storage.

Many paths to the one cloud - IBM and VMware

IBM is riding a giant wave of cloud-buzz this week after announcing an official strategy of leveraging OpenStack for future private as well as public IBM cloud offerings - just today, March 5th, 2013. This is a significant announcement from IBM, as it declares a future architectural direction and will put OpenStack in the center of focus for a good portion of IBM's 400,000+ employees (a good chunk of who are developers) as well as IBM's tremendous development ecosystem (crossing such brands and products as Rational, InfoSphere, WebSphere, Informix, DB2, Lotus, Cognos, FileNet, etc.).

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.

Virtualizing Hadoop Impacts Big Data Storage

Hadoop is soon coming to enterprise IT in a big way. VMware’s new vSphere Big Data Extensions (BDE) commercializes its open source Project Serengeti to make it dead easy for enterprise admins to spin and up down virtual Hadoop clusters at will.

Keep Upgrading Your Data Center No Matter Where the Cloud Takes You

Improving the data center to keep up with advancing technologies has been the chief, perennial responsibility of CIOs over the years. These days, however, the job has taken on a new twist as new questions arise: Is the data center the best platform to boost enterprise productivity? Do we need a data center at all anymore?

EMC Releases ViPR into the Wild - Storage Controllers for Everyone!

At EMC World 2015 this year EMC made a bunch of announcements, but one of the most discussed, and causing the most head-scratching, was the open sourcing of their ViPR storage controller as the new Project CoprHD. Why would EMC give away the core automation component to their much bandied about "Platform 3" strategy? According to the new projects FAQ - Making ViPR Controller available as the CoprHD project in the open source community allows customers, partners, service providers, systems integrators and even other storage vendors to download, expand and contribute to ViPR Controller's breadth and depth of features and functions. Some are of course judiciously skeptical. This is EMC's first foray into open source. One cynic suggested that open sourcing was the best way to kill off an unwanted product...
