Hyper-convergence, solid-state, software-defined storage and the cloud have revolutionized the way we deploy, manage and secure storage. How the dozen leading data storage vendors presented here navigate the challenges and opportunities created by these changes will tell us a lot about the short- and long-term future of data center storage. Find out what to watch out for with each of these data storage vendors as the year unfolds.
On-demand object, block and file storage as a service from the likes of Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure is a standard part of today’s IT toolkit. Cloud storage isn’t the exclusive domain of the public cloud, however. You can gain the same convenience, flexibility and agility by building your own internal storage cloud. We present the resources enterprises can use to construct one of these, and how to integrate it with existing storage and computing resources as well as public cloud storage.Continue Reading

As with any product still in its infancy, an exact definition for virtual machine-aware storage can be difficult to nail down. In simple terms, VM-aware storage is an appliance that vendors build specifically with virtual machines in mind in order to cut back on some of the most pertinent issues in virtual environments: complexity, difficult management and lagging performance.
Using VM-aware storage typically means there's no need to configure logical unit numbers and volumes, and because VMs are directly associated with the storage they reside on, priority can be given to more demanding apps and VMs can be granularly managed. This guide will walk you through what products classify as VM-aware storage, how they are implemented in virtual environments and what benefits they can bring to storage and virtualization administrators so you can make an informed decision about whether they're the right choice.Continue Reading
