Up until just a few years ago, the hard disk drive (HDD) was the de facto choice for storage in a laptop or desktop computer. Today computer users have more options to fine-tune storage to exactly what they need. Solid state drives (SSD) and newer solid state hybrid drives (SSHD) can enhance the performance of your computer compared to using a traditional hard drive. So whether it’s a new computer or an upgrade to your existing system, how do you choose the right storage option for you?

As the economy emerges from the global financial crisis of 2009 and businesses start to take a cautiously optimistic view of the future, IDC is seeing certain changes take place within the
business environment, especially around attitudes to IT purchasing and specifically around the
challenges that have emerged regarding storage technologies.
Most critically is the emergence of storage as a business critical solution environment that proved to be immune to the recession, in that businesses were quick to discover that, in spite of the slowdown in revenues and income, data continued to grow and, in some cases, this growth in data was a direct result of the impact of the recession. Consequently, one of the unexpected outcomes of the financial crisis is that storage has emerged as a new area of concern for business owners as they began to understand that it was almost impossible to reduce data growth and, therefore, efficient methods of managing data will have a direct impact to the efficiency of the business.

The Oakley Union Elementary School District in California has a long track record of providing
quality education to children living in Oakley. Operating seven schools at different locations
around the city, the school district handles large amounts of data. As an educational institute,
data needs to be properly protected in order to preserve student records and other vital
The data backup configuration that was being used by the school district was inefficient and
costly, and was no longer able to meet data backup demands. The school district commenced
a search for a new solution, and after a careful selection process it decided to adopt Infortrend's iSCSI-host ESVA solution.
In an innovation-powered economy, ideas need to travel at the speed of thought. Yet even as our ability to communicate across companies and time zones grows rapidly, people remain frustrated by downtime and unanticipated delays across the increasingly complex grid of cloud-based infrastructure, data networks, storage systems, and servers that power our work.
What is a Data Lake?
Today’s organizations are tasked with managing multiple data types, coming from a wide variety of sources. Faced with massive volumes and heterogeneous types of data, organizations are finding that in order to deliver insights in a timely manner, they need a data storage and analytics solution that offers more agility and flexibility than traditional data management systems.
Data Lakes are a new and increasingly popular way to store and analyze data that addresses many of these challenges. A Data Lakes allows an organization to store all of their data, structured and unstructured, in one, centralized repository. Since data can be stored as-is, there is no need to convert it to a predefined schema and you no longer need to know what questions you want to ask of your data beforehand.
