    Spreading the risk: using multicloud to make data storage safer

    Putting all your eggs into one basket is never a good idea, and the same could be said about companies using cloud providers to store data. A case in point was the outage at Microsoft’s Azure cloud management system on February 29, 2012, affecting users in parts of the US and Europe for several hours. On February 28 this year, an outage at the Amazon Web Services S3 cloud storage service panicked IT departments, with websites and services – such…

    Hyperconverged storage: Are your network and team up to the task?

    Credit: Thinkstock There is reality in the hype that moving to a converged storage environment can produce major cost savings while paving the path to advanced virtualization technologies. Part of the appeal comes from the ability to use commodity servers and storage to build a shared storage pool vs. relying on a dedicated appliance that typically comes at a pretty substantial premium. Increased flexibility is another reason for moving in this direction. IT teams gain greater options in how they…

  • What HPE’s Billion Dollar Bet on Storage Means for Market Innovation
    What HPE’s Billion Dollar Bet on Storage Means for Market Innovation

    The storage market has been called a “chess match” of consolidation, and with good reason. Mergers, acquisitions and IPOs are dramatically reshaping the storage landscape – and have for the past two years. HPE’s acquisition of Nimble Storage is the latest move, further delineating the market between the tech giants and their patchwork of acquisitions and a startup scene that must punch above its weight. The real question becomes, who will be able to drive innovation that businesses and consumers…

    Data Storage: The Hard Disk Drive

    Currently, the most widely-used storage device is the Hard Disk Drive (HDD), but its popularity is rapidly declining. In an earlier column — Digital Data Storage is Undergoing Mind-Boggling Growth — we considered the mind-boggling growth of electronic data, which exceeded 10,000 exabytes or 10 zettabytes in 2016. By 2020, the volume of data is estimated to surpass 50 zettabytes. It’s worth mentioning that there is only one prefix left, the “yotta,” which was established at the 19th General Conference…

    Here’s How You can Increase the Internal Storage in Android

    Though we all love our Androids, there’s this message which keeps tormenting us from time to time — low internal storage. Yea, I know, you have to let go of apps, send the pictures and videos to cloud storage , delete old files, etc. This problem is especially rampant in the budget phones, where the internal storage is mostly on the lower side. And to top it all you have the OS eating up a quarter of the internal memory….

    IBM wipes away tiers to join cloud storage price wars

    IBM’s decided to play the “our cloud storage is even cheaper than your cloud storage” game, but by a different set of rules. Big Blue’s decided that tiered cloud storage assumes users make decisions based on unusually-potent-and-accurate insights into their long-term data use patterns, and therefore commit themselves to a tier of storage in the hope it’s the cheapest place to store that data. But IBM reckons modern analytics and cognitive tools mean you’ll probably start to consider archival or…
