  • Server-side flash technology lifts solid-state adoption

    Server-side solid-state storage is more ubiquitous than ever due to growing capacities and rapidly dropping flash technology prices. There are a many ways to install flash technology in a server, though there are decisions to make before you buy. We examine flash technology form factors, interfaces, protocols and capacities, as well as use cases, advantages and limitations.

    Disk-based backups revolutionized data protection. While far more expensive to deploy and maintain than tape, a growing list of vendors are consolidating backup with other secondary storage requirements into appliances that make disk-based backup more cost-effective.

    Although tape may no longer be the storage medium of choice for backup and disaster recovery, it still has a solid place in enterprises as an archive tier and as a transportation and sharing format for certain industries. In this issue of Storage magazine, we explore the state of the art of tape and its potential use cases today.

  • Address ROBO backup challenges

    Historically, remote office/branch office (ROBO) backup has been a challenge. The cost to send large amounts of data over the wire to a central data center was too expensive for most organizations. So, most ROBO backup happened on-site if at all. But today, data reduction technologies make that kind of transfer possible. This allows shops to centrally manage remote site backup from the main data center. It also enables cloud backup of remote data.

    Endpoint data protection, particularly for laptops and mobile devices, has also been fraught with issues. Today those problems have largely been addressed, but, half of all organizations still don't use endpoint backup products, despite the increasingly prevalent use of personal mobile devices to access corporate data. This handbook gives an overview of challenges associated with remote data protection and the products available today to address them.
