A technology roadmap for the storage industry is forecasting a ten-fold increase in hard drive storage capacity over the next decade as new recording technologies come online to boost areal densities. The Advanced Storage Technology Consortium’s technology roadmap extending out to 2025 projects a 30 percent compounded annual growth rate for hard drive areal density (measured in terabits per ...

As Sony Pictures learned the hard way this week, the relatively small cost of backing up your data is worth the expense and trouble. Still, a survey released this week by storage giant EMC found that the vast majority of global enterprises are “behind the curve” when it comes to data security. The timing of the EMC survey is ...

For all the talk about all-flash arrays, there are still companies and customers who want hybrid arrays because they think machines that mix flash and disk storage offer the right mix of price and performance for specific jobs. This is an argument that will not be settled until the last disk drive head crashes into the last spinning platter. ...

The latest version of storage services specialist SolidFire’s Element OS adds multi-tenant networking along with user features the company said can be used to consolidate a mix of application workloads in the datacenter. SolidFire said this week its Element OS 7 builds on the previous six versions to target consolidation, automation, and scaling of cloud infrastructures used my multiple ...

Software-defined storage specialist DataCore Software said the latest release of its storage services platform could double the scale of hyper-converged storage systems to 64 nodes while significantly bumping up the performance of write-heavy workloads. The company released a new version of its SANsymphony-V10 storage platform and a virtual storage area network that works with any hypervisor. It also enables ...

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 ...

All-flash storage array maker Pure Storage has been very clear that it is not interested in going backwards and delivering hybrid arrays that mix disk drives and flash memory, as many incumbent disk array makers are doing. But the company’s top brass is now hinting that Pure Storage may go in another direction, offering hyperconverged systems that take on ...
