Everything you should know to decide if nonvolatile memory express is right for your enterprise and, if it is, how to plan for the future of flash storage. Continue Reading
Cracks in the SAS and SATA protocols started to appear with the rise of SSDs and the exponential performance improvements they delivered over HDD technology. This led to the development of the nonvolatile memory express protocol to exploit flash's potential. As the future of flash storage, NVMe addresses many of SAS and SATA's shortcomings by, among other things, connecting storage devices closer to the processor to reduce latency and introducing parallelism using multiple I/O queues and greater queue depth to match flash's ability to process many requests in parallel -- something SAS and SATA drives can't do. NVMe SSD adoption is leading to new storage architectures and helping give rise to disaggregated approaches to storage. NVMe-based devices come at a cost premium, however. Find out if and when you should move to NVMe and what the best use cases are for the future of flash storage and your enterprise.
Monetizing malware through ransomware has led to massive financial losses for companies worldwide. Ransomware is a megabillion-dollar industry and is becoming more sophisticated all the time. Although data backup restoration remains the best way to deal with a ransomware attack, it's no longer foolproof. It's time to rethink your organization's backup and restoration processes, acknowledge the hidden dangers of replication and revisit your permissions model to strengthen your defenses against the ransomware threat. Here's how.
Economic espionage, the theft of intellectual property and trade secrets, is another threat U.S. companies face. It can be rogue employees with access to company information doing the stealing, but most often, cybercriminals commit the crime. Effectively combatting economic espionage requires implementing a range of IT measures covered in this article.Continue Reading

NVM Express over Fabrics and storage class memory may disrupt traditional storage over the next half decade in much the same way NAND flash did over the last five years. Continue Reading
Our hot data storage technology trends for 2018 include predictive storage analytics, ransomware protection, converged secondary storage, multi-cloud and NVMe over Fabrics. Continue Reading
Traditional application architectures are limited in their ability to scale and meet the demands of today's fast-growing data, cloud and IT environments. Containerization -- with its support for Agile design, development and deployment methodologies -- promises to overcome these challenges. Containers weren't originally designed to implement full-stack applications or any application that needs persistent storage. With containers gaining support from storage array makers, we're starting to see arrays allowing containerized applications to take advantage of primary storage. Find out how storage vendors are bringing persistent storage to the world of containerized applications.
Nonvolatile memory express (NVMe) replaces SCSI at both the device and network levels to deliver greater bandwidth and lower latency to internal storage devices. And with the development of NVMe over Fabrics, the NVMe command set can work across the network via external storage. Discover the benefits of NVMe over Fabrics, when to deploy the technology, how to implement it and which vendors are making it happen.
Copy data management (CDM) protects production data and improves the management of production data copies, with the aim of cutting storage costs, improving data visibility and compliance, and speeding up data access. Until last year, it was the province of point products. But the market is changing, and the technology has gone mainstream as the largest data protection and storage vendors have joined the CDM fray. Find out which CDM capabilities companies value most and what is being done to meet growing demand. What advantages can CDM bring to your IT data storage environment?Continue Reading
