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.
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 TDWI Best Practices report explains the benefits that Hadoop and Hadoop-based products can bring to organizations today, both for big data analytics and as complements to existing BI and data warehousing technologies.

This report examines the issues that are driving organizations to replace older archive and backup-and restore systems with business continuity and always-available solutions that can scale to handle extreme data growth while leveraging a cloud-based pricing model. The report also looks at the role of Storiant and its long-term storage services solution in the strategically important long-term storage market.
When it comes to the increasingly complex task of managing data storage, many small and midsize organizations face even greater challenges than large, global enterprises.
Small and midsize companies have ever-increasing volumes of information to manage and secure, and they are confronting a number of difficulties when it comes to storage. Among the biggest hurdles:
›› Scaling storage as the business grows rapidly
›› Meeting the rising expense of data storage capacity
›› Dealing with the complexity of management and architecture
›› Devoting precious staff time managing storage and data backup
Whereas larger organizations have significant IT budgets and staff to handle storage-related challenges, small and midsize companies lack the IT resources to dedicate to storage management. Fortunately, there are new approaches to data storage on the market that can help such companies address their data storage needs without requiring dedicated storage management resources, while at the same ti
Virtualization promises cost savings, improved productivity, and the ability to transform your business. But too often security can either detract from the performance gains that virtualization promises, or just not give you the protection you need. Getting the balance right is critical.
Virtualization promises to boost efficiency and cut costs. Whether you’re running applications on physical or virtual machines, you still need to stay vigilant to guard against the constant and growing hazard of malware and other cyberthreats that can put your business at risk. This guide will show you how.
"It takes companies an average 18.5 hours to recover from an event with 4.8 hours of lost data." (Forrester/DRJ 2010 survey). How do your customer stack up? Watch the recorded webcast where Forrester Research senior analyst Rachel Dines has a provocative conversation with Veeam strategist Doug Hazelman on the future of disaster recovery, how virtualization can help - or hinder - your customer's DR efforts and 5 simple ways to begin the move to Business Technology Resiliency.
A lot of your customers will tell you: "VM backup is a pain" - but it doesn't have to be...Veeam Backup & Replication provides unified VMware and Hyper-V backup and replication that: is simple to use, provides great features at a great price and it just works!
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.
Connections are great. Having a network to connect to is even better. Humans have been connecting, in one form or another, throughout history. Our cities were born from the drive to move closer to each other so that we might connect. And while the need to connect hasn’t changed, the way we do it definitely has. Nowhere is this evolution more apparent than in business. In today’s landscape, business is more virtual, geographically dispersed and mobile than ever, with companies building new data centers and clustering servers in separate locations.
The challenge is that companies vary hugely in scale, scope and direction. Many are doing things not even imagined two decades ago, yet all of them rely on the ability to connect, manage and distribute large stores of data. The next wave of innovation relies on the ability to do this dynamically.
