Software-defined storage along with hyper-converged infrastructure may be catching on at the high end of the enterprise market largely because it promises to make life a little easier for those who manage storage infrastructure. Most of the IT managers interviewed by market analyst 451 Research this past summer said they either understood SDS (59 percent) or had heard of ...

Don’t try to lift this by yourself. In the search for ever-cheaper and ever-denser storage, the customers that drive the Data Center Solutions unit at Dell have asked the company to forge a storage-heavy dual-node server that could cram nearly a quarter of an exabyte of data into a single modular datacenter container. The DCS unit doesn’t do announcements ...

In the hyperscale world, snippets of data pile up like mountains and a traditional file system that allows data to be updated is not only inappropriate, but too slow to serve up that data. This is precisely why object storage was invented in the first place somewhere between two and three decades ago, depending on how you want to ...

Most disk storage arrays are based on commodity hardware these days. Generally speaking, they use Xeon processors from Intel as their controller brains, they use normal main memory as a read cache, and maybe some kind of nonvolatile memory as a write cache. The disk controllers and disk drives are commodities, too. The real differences between one vendor and ...

As more applications are virtualized, storage is said to be emerging as a bottleneck in datacenter performance. These performance issues mean many applications cannot take full advantage of the benefits of virtual machines, according to an industry survey. The survey of more than 350 IT professionals by server-side storage intelligence vendor PernixData contends that the majority of those surveyed ...

IBM has sold off its System x division to Lenovo, eBay is spinning off PayPal, and Hewlett-Packard is breaking itself into two. Suddenly the idea of conglomerates that have many and often competing businesses is going out of fashion. Activist investors are on the prowl to take stakes and break up companies to try to “unlock shareholder value,” as ...

The competition in the hyperconverged system market is heating up, and companies that once worried about taking on incumbent server and storage makers with their server-storage hybrids now have to worry about – and counter the attacks of – all-flash storage array makers who are positioning themselves as the fast storage hub at the center of server clusters.
