We conducted our 4Q14 Storage Reseller survey and collected feedback from 38 distributors/resellers located in North America and Europe. The top performers were EMC and a host of next-generation storage vendors, including Tintri, Veeam, Nutanix,
Actifio and Pure Storage. The only next-generation vendor that under-performed in Q4 was Nimble. NetApp’s results were skewed toward in-line with plan. CommVault posted the weakest results of the entire storage group.
Für viele Unternehmen stehen die Flexibilisierung und Agilität der IT-Infrastruktur ganz oben im Pflichtenheft. Immer mehr Geschäftsprozesse erfolgen online und in Echtzeit. Die klassische IT-Service-Delivery kommt zunehmend an ihre Grenzen und den IT-Abteilungen fällt es immer schwerer, die Anforderungen der Fachbereiche nach schneller und kostengünstiger Bereitstellung von ITRessourcen zu erfüllen.
Der Eintritt von NetApp in den Hyperkonvergenzmarkt ist seit Langem überfällig, und die Lösung wird bei den wichtigsten Kunden des Unternehmens große Wellen schlagen. IDC ist der Meinung, dass die Entscheidung von NetApp für die Technologie von SolidFire als Grundlage der HCI beweist, dass es verstärkt auf die neue Generation von Speichertechnologien setzt, die den digitalen Wandel ermöglichen. Die Integration mit Data Fabric zeigt, dass NetApp fähig ist, seine Vision für die hybride Cloud und den Datenverkehr in all seine Lösungen einzubringen, damit Kunden ihre Pläne für eine hybride IT nahtlos vorantreiben können. Schließlich deuten die flexiblen Skalierungsmöglichkeiten darauf hin, dass NetApp nicht einfach in aller Eile ein „Me-too“ Produkt auf den Markt bringen, sondern vielmehr ernsthaft auf die kostenbezogenen Herausforderungen eingehen wollte, denen sich HCI-Kunden gegenübersehen.

Forget about the complex task of building your own solution. Commvault offers a portfolio of integrated backup appliances that allow you to go from power-up to backup in less than an hour. Each appliance combines Commvault’s industry-leading software with pre-configured and optimized hardware, including an option that uses NetApp’s category-leading NetApp E-Series storage system. To further simplify ordering and deployment, the appliances include a licensing option aligned to the usable storage capacity (e.g., 36TB of NetApp E-Series storage includes 36TB of Commvault back-end terabyte licensing). Or you can purchase the hardware separately and use it with Commvault’s traditional front-end terabyte capacity licensing. Either way, Commvault serves as the single point of contact for software and hardware support issues, and the installation wizard allows you to be up and running quickly regardless of the option you choose.

Around-the-clock global operations, data growth, and server virtualization all together can complicate protection and recovery strategies. They affect when and how often you can perform backups, increase the time required to back up, and ultimately affect your ability to successfully restore. These challenges can force lower standards for recovery objectives, such as reducing the frequency of backup jobs or protecting fewer applications, both of which can introduce risk. High-speed snapshot technologies and application integration can go a long way toward meeting these needs, and they have quickly become essential elements of a complete protection strategy. But snapshot copies have often been managed separately from traditional backup processes. Features like cataloging for search and retrieval as well as tape creation usually require separate management and do not fully leverage snapshot capabilities. To eliminate complexity and accelerate protection and recovery, you need a solution
