What you’ll learn in this tip: The computer industry has overcome a multitude of technological challenges in the past several years. Networking and memory speeds have increased, processors have gotten faster and 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10 GbE) has allowed for a massive increase in bandwidth. However none of these advances will remain beneficial if I/O performance doesn’t improve. Author Arun Taneja outlines the basics of I/O and explains why critical applications are stalled due to I/O performance issues. There are many supposed keys to this decades old issue -- while some turn to Flash, Flash memory or NAND flash memory chips, others look to solid-state and solid-state drive (SSD) controllers.
In this tip series, Arun Taneja, founder and president of Taneja Group, offers his best cloud tips to users. In part one, Arun tells users how to ensure they get their data out of a cloud storage repository if they decide to switch cloud storage service providers or bring their data back in-house.
One of the issues created by holding voluminous data sets (also called "big data") in your storage environment is how to protect that data.
Data storage is a crucial part of a solution provider’s offering, whether they offer cloud services or are planning to. Regardless of whether you’re a large-scale cloud infrastructure as a service (IaaS) provider or a small regional managed service provider (MSP), a strong storage platform can push you ahead of the competition and help you quickly expand your business.
The term “convergence” may have been overused by IT marketers, but it’s an important concept that should represent an ongoing design principle and can maximize storage investments.
Enterprise IT shops looking to consolidate data centers and virtualize their servers will need to weigh the latest storage networking technology developments as they plot any infrastructure upgrade.
Laptop backup specialist Druva today upgraded its inSync software to bring its full protection capabilities to smartphones and tablets.
Whether cloud-based file sharing is used as an alternative to backup solutions or by small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) that want to give employees flexibility in their file accessibility, it's clear the technology is gaining traction as a business tool.
Tier 1 applications have been virtualized, but enterprise data centers are seeing little action when it comes to virtualized mission-critical applications.

Symantec Corp. today announced an Apache Hadoop add-on capability for its Veritas Cluster File System to help run "big data" analytics on storage area networks instead of scale-out, commodity servers using local storage.
The fast developing solid-state storage market offers a variety of implementation choices. By carefully assessing your needs, you’ll be able to make the right product selection.
Right now, virtual storage appliances (VSAs) that promise higher performance and scalability than prior-generation models are giving small- and medium-sized businesses as well as enterprise users an alternative to traditional disk arrays.
Right now, virtual storage appliances (VSAs) that promise higher performance and scalability than prior-generation models are giving small- and medium-sized businesses as well as enterprise users an alternative to traditional disk arrays. In fact, consultancy Taneja Group Inc., based in Hopkinton, Mass., predicts that VSAs will ultimately be a disruptive technology in the storage marketplace.

An effective QoS implementation helps tunes data storage to meet the specific needs of applications. New tools that offer more automation are emerging to help.
Before putting their data into public cloud storage, IT shops need to think about how they're going to get their data out. Simple data access is typically straightforward, according to Jeff Byrne, senior analyst and consultant at Hopkinton, Mass.-based Taneja Group Inc.
