You can have all the latest features of iOS 8 on your iPhone, but if you’re still using an iPhone 4s, you won’t be able to take advantage of most of them.
This should serve as an appropriate metaphor for this audience because when it comes to data storage, many of today’s storage solutions have been around since the 1970s…as in the the world of mobile, today’s data storage needs are revealing just how limited those older solutions are. Even if a company has updated almost everything in its IT ecosystem, it takes only one unchanged layer to prevent them from realizing the benefits of the latest technology.
With petabyte scale, reliability, performance, and efficiency the order of the day we are fast approaching that point with storage. There is without question a need to change in the current storage paradigm.
In this webinar you will learn about current IT storage challenges and useful insights about next-generation storage solutions.

Finding a better place to store an ever-expanding volume of valuables is a near universal challenge—for individuals and their businesses. From physical holes in the ground to the ethereal cloud and beyond, the range of options for stashing stuff is immense. And, depending on what you’re storing and how easily you want others to find it, some options are better than others.

Read this Forrester whitepaper to learn more about the critical, yet often overlooked, role that data classification and data discovery can play in reducing your organization's risk and enhancing security.
Big data analytics offer organizations an unprecedented opportunity to derive new business insights and drive smarter decisions. The outcome of any big data analytics project, however, is only as good as the quality of the data being used. Although organizations may have their structured data under fairly good control, this is often not the case with the unstructured content that accounts for the vast majority of enterprise information. Good information governance is essential to the success of big data analytics projects. Good information governance also pays big dividends by reducing the costs and risks associated with the management of unstructured information. This paper explores the link between good information governance and the outcomes of big data analytics projects and takes a look at IBM's StoredIQ solution.
With a data explosion upon us that shows no slowing in sight, information governance is no longer an option for corporations. IBM StoredIQ is an important first step toward getting data under control, lowering storage costs and mitigating risk.
In this On Demand session learn about using cloud-based social collaboration tools to streamline key areas of your business, increasing time to invest in new product development. Hear how one manufacturer turned to an IBM Business Partner to implement IBM SmartCloud Connections.
Selecting an Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) provider can be a complex exercise that involves an array of considerations including business needs, budget, and application requirements. Buyers frequently respond to this complexity by filtering vendors based on variables that are more easily comparable, usually product features, location, and price. By contrast, performance, which is a critical factor to ensuring fit with business needs and ultimately satisfaction with the service, is often ignored. Virtual machine (VM) performance can be challenging to assess because it can vary drastically across vendors, instance sizes and prices, as well as in terms of a particular application’s unique requirements.
As an IT professional, you know that when you have many users to support, every second counts! Slow remote desktop connection times and poor, unreliable connection performance can add up to significant time wasted when extended over days, weeks and months of remote control sessions.
This national children's hospital relies on a big data platform to better understand its patients, their conditions, and the quality of care they receive in support of its mission: to make kids better today and healthier tomorrow.
The most direct path to making Big Data -- and Hadoop -- a first-class citizen will be through an "embrace and extend" approach that not only maps to existing skill sets, data center policies and practices, and business use cases, but also extends them.
For an implementation of its size, Western Union anticipated going from “zero to Hadoop” in about a year. Exceeding expectations, “We had our first production-ready Cloudera system up within just five months,” commented Saraf. “We were actually leveraging it for some of our transactional processing, and saw immediate value.”
Merkle employs an analytically led, data-driven methodology and an enterprise data hub (EDH) from Cloudera to help large consumer brand clients build and sustain profitable customer relationships through smarter marketing.
The greatest promise of the information-driven enterprise resides in the business-relevant questions financial services firms have historically been unable or afraid to ask, related to data consolidation and multi-tenancy, full-fidelity analytics and regulatory compliance, and Big Data.
Cloudera has been included as a Challenger in Gartner's 2015 Magic Quadrant for Data Warehouse and Data Management Solutions for Analytics, following last year’s debut as the only included pure-play Hadoop distribution vendor.
This paper will provide guidance for cutting through the fog where it comes to how power and equipment densities vary within a data center and for planning how to handle the varying densities at the data center rack.
“Do more with less” seems to be the dogmatic decree that confronts today’s IT professionals as they struggle to reconcile constrained budgets with apparently limitless growth in unstructured and structured data. With costly primary storage rapidly filling up (and slowing down), the need to migrate less active data onto a more cost-effective storage tier is clear.
