IBM customers using its non-volitile memory express storage gear say they benefit from FlashSystem 9100's predictive analytics, resource management software and smaller form factor.
Google is adding to its cloud storage options with the debut of a network attached storage (NAS) service called Google Cloud Filestore. Also, Los Angeles is the newest site for Google Cloud Platform in the U.S.
Non-Volatile Memory Express, or NVMe, is a protocol for accessing high-speed storage media that’s designed to reduce latency and increase system and application performance. NVMe is optimized for all-flash storage systems, and it’s aimed at enterprise workloads that require low latency and top performance, such as real-time data analytics and high-performance relational databases.
IBM Storage Insights is a new AI and cloud-based storage management platform that’s designed to give users a fast view of storage capacity and performance as well as make tiering recommendations to help cut storage cost. .
The rise of programmable networks and software-defined networking has changed the role of the network engineer, and accepting those changes is key to career advancement. Network engineers need to become software fluent and embrace automation, according to a panel of network professionals brought together by Cisco.
Penn State chose microsegmentation technology from Tempered Networks to isolate and cloak traffic from its smart building systems, which rely on the BACnet communications protocol to share data related to HVAC, lighting, access control, fire detection and more.
A storage area network (SAN) provides a pool of storage resources that can be centrally managed and allocated as needed, but how is a SAN different than NAS and how does how it segregate storage traffic?
Improvements in network-attached storage density and performance target unstructured data workloads. Here's how a NAS server works, how it is different than a SAN and what IT buyers want in file-level storage.
Microsegmentation is a way to create secure zones in data centers and cloud deployments that allow you to isolate workloads and protect them individually.
Startup Vexata tackles how to eliminate input-output bottlenecks in storage fabrics without requiring customers to retool their IT infrastructure or rewrite applications.
Hyperconverged systems combine storage, compute and network functionality in a single, highly virtualized solution. Hyperconvergence gained traction in 2017 as enterprises shifted storage spending to software. As the new year rolls in, the momentum will continue.
