• Cloud technology bridges the gap between IT and the business, but on-premises cloud deployments often offer a lower TCO than the public cloud.
• Dell enables organizations to create and manage cloud solutions customized to unique needs.
• Organizations have several options for building a cloud infrastructure based on Dell solutions.
• In the realm of cloud computing, Dell differentiates itself through servers, storage, networking, and integration with infrastructure and management tools.
• Implementing a cloud environment requires stakeholder identification, as well as resources and capabilities.
According to many market research analysts, the global wireless access point (WAP) market is anticipated to continue its upward trajectory and to grow at an impressive compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of approximately 8% through 2020. Many enterprises are utilizing cloudcomputing technology for cost-cutting purposes, eliminating investments required for storage hardware and other physical infrastructures. With significant growth expected in Internet usage, particularly bandwidth consuming video traffic, WAP vendors need to enable their customers to monitor and improve device performance, improve end user experience, and enhance security. These customers include general enterprises that offer Internet access to patrons like airports, hotels, retail / shopping centers and so on. These external Internet access providers can differentiate themselves by offering optimum service through advanced network analytics, traffic shaping, application control, security capabilities and more.
Companies need capabilities for identifying data assets and relationships, assessing data growth and implementing tiered storage strategies-capabilities that information governance can provide. It is important to classify enterprise data, understand data relationships and define service levels. Database archiving has proven effective in managing continued application data growth especially when it is combined with data discovery.

GARTNER HAS NAMED DELL EMC AS A LEADER FOR DISTRIBUTED FILE SYSTEMS AND OBJECT STORAGE. This report evaluates Distributed File and Object Storage vendors that help customers deal with the rapid growth in unstructured data. Isilon, the industry leader in scale-out NAS storage, and Dell EMC Elastic Cloud Storage (ECS), were both recognized as leaders in this Gartner report. We believe this recognition demonstrates our industry-leading capabilities to help prepare our customers for their digital future.
"As IT continues to implement advanced capabilities, as well as traditional services such as server virtualization, storage systems become more complex. The complexity only increases because of the rapid growth of data that needs to be managed.
View this resource to learn the results of ESG Lab hands-on evaluation of NetApp storage systems with a focus on those enterprise-class capabilities required to manage increasingly large and complex storage environments."
HPE technology experts talk about two new storage products from HPE that bring flash performance and other enterprise storage capabilities down to price and simplicity levels that can benefit nearly any organization in the market for shared storage.
Enterprises and managed service providers (MSPs) have some similar challenges in the realm of data protection. Both have to deal with expansive environments—with enterprises protecting distributed offices/geographies, and MSPs protecting many independent subscribers. Both also have been seeing production data storage and secondary protection storage demands rising. Enterprises and MSPs alike should therefore be looking for data protection architectures that have scale-out capabilities built into their core foundation.
The Titan 3000 family of high performance network storage hardware from BlueArc is yet another example of the company's innovative abilities, with enhanced and eye-popping capacity and performance specifications matched to its strong, familiar—and growing—feature and management capabilities. With perfect timing, it looks as if this product is a good match for emerging market needs.
Organizations of all kinds rely on their relational databases for both transaction processing and analytics, but many still have challenges in meeting their goals of high availability, security, and performance. Whether planning for a major upgrade of existing databases or considering a net new project, enterprise solution architects should realize that the storage capabilities will matter. NetApp’s systems, software, and services offer a number of advantages as a foundation for better operational results.
In this ESG white paper, the capabilities and common characteristics of flash implementations are categorized as “bronze”-, “silver”-, and “gold”-type approaches, depending on the degree to which they enable fully featured storage systems. It evaluates how HP’s storage delivers the basics and follows with a series of flash-specific optimizations and advances that we’ll call “gold standard” flash capabilities, after which it hints at HP’s vision of the future for their flash storage architecture. Throughout the paper, the importance of both IT architecture and business implications is emphasized.

Over the past few years, new IT infrastructure options for enterprise transactional applications have arisen thanks to numerous improvements in storage processing power and the robustness of networking protocols. SAN protocols are no longer the only option for IT storage administrations. VMware, Hyper-V, SQL, and even SAP and Oracle deployments have taken advantage of the benefits offered by NFS, and more recently SMB 3, network-attached storage (NAS) protocols. However, support for NAS protocols alone is not enough. EMC and Brocade understand that supporting enterprise applications requires delivering enterprise storage and networking capabilities to maximize resiliency and performance.
Storage virtualization has been around for several decades. While technologies have advanced and capabilities have become more sophisticated over time, the motivations for virtualizing resources and the anticipated benefits have remained relatively stable. Storage virtualization continues to be an important topic because it addresses a number of significant challenges.
ESG Lab tested the HP XP24000 storage system to validate the business impact of the new capabilities of the XP24000, including HP Thin Provisioning Software, creating large logical pools of capacity and the enhanced performance of the XP24000 as a core component of HP's extensive portfolio of IT solutions and services.
We've all heard that data is growing at an unprecedented rate. And anyone in business also knows how critical it is to store, retrieve and archive data efficiently and cost-effectively. However, with a storage system's total cost of ownership often running significantly higher than its purchase price, where can you possibly lower costs? The answer lies in maintenance, labor, and power and cooling. To get the best and the most storage for your dollar, read this online article to consider the ramifications of these three cost-impacting factors: provisioning capabilities, energy efficiency and data reduction features.
