Storage refers to computer components, devices and recording media that retain data for some interval of time. Storage provides one of the core functions of the modern computer, that of information retention. Topics include Storage Area Networks, NAS, and Virtualization.
The Pivot3 N5 storage architecture was designed from the ground up to maximize the business value of data for customers. Our storage team recognized that with flash becoming pervasive in the datacenter, a new storage architecture was needed to help users manage workload performance. With other architectures, painstaking planning is required to prioritize data into specific categories for performance, availability, reliability, backup, etc., and then even more effort is spent designing and implementing storage systems that can meet those goals.
We designed a storage architecture that makes it simple for customers to prioritize their data, and let the storage system take care of managing the data to meet those prioritizations.
Quality of service (QoS) is a critical enabling technology for enterprises and service providers wanting to deliver consistent primary storage performance to business-critical applications in a multi-tenant or enterprise infrastructure. The type of applications that require primary storage services typically demand greater levels of performance than what is readily available from traditional storage infrastructures today. However, simply providing raw performance is often not the only objective in these use cases. For a broad range of business-critical applications, consistent and predictable performance are the more important metrics. Unfortunately, neither is easily achievable within traditional storage arrays.
This document provides an overview of EMC’s XtremIO architecture as it compares to SolidFire. Not intended to be exhaustive, this overview covers select elements where the solutions differ and presents their impact to overall suitability for data center needs.
So you’ve chosen OpenStack for your cloud infrastructure. Now another big decision needs to be made: Block storage or object storage? OpenStack has sub-projects that deliver both block (Cinder) and object (Swift) storage. A variety of performance-focused primary storage and optimized secondary storage solutions are on the market, and they provide flexible, highly scalable storage services for OpenStack.
Data loss, theft or breach is inevitable, but backup assures recovery, continuity and rapid response.

Offsite data replication is key to ensuring ongoing business operations, but it can be complex and costly, especially when performed over long distances.
Join this discussion to discover how you can apply fast, cost effective and reliable remote replication that can:
• Meet Recovery Point Objectives (RPO) by reducing remote replication times by up to 20X
• Reduce bandwidth costs and extend replication distances
• Lower storage costs while increasing storage flexibility
• Leverage emerging cloud and virtualization technologies for better offsite disaster recovery
Hear from the experts and users at Dell Compellent, Silver Peak and AlaskaUSA discuss essential data replication strategies and technologies.
Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, a nationally recognized fully integrated academic medical center and health system, is dedicated to improving patient care and advancing medical research.

You’ve managed to piece together the “DREAM TEAM.” Your tech staff works like a well-oiled machine, keeping your company humming and thriving.
And then it happens: dissension. For whatever reason, your employees have grown unhappy and you find out they’re searching for new employment or losing productivity.
• What did you do wrong?
• Did you hire the wrong people?
• Did your company push them away?
• Or is it a combination of numerous factors?
In order to retain employees, you must build an environment that fosters loyalty and growth.
