Storage Virtualization refers to the process of completely abstracting logical storage from physical storage. The physical storage resources are agregated into storage pools, from which the logical storage is created. With storage virtualization, multiple independent storage devices, that may be scattered over a network, appear to be a single monolithic storage device, which can be managed centrally. Storage Virtualization is commonly used in SANs.

This major Hollywood studio wanted to improve the computer time required to render animated films. Using HPC solution powered by Platform LSF increased compute capacity allowing release of two major feature films and multiple animated shorts.
University of East Anglia wished to create a “green” HPC resource, increase compute power and support research across multiple operating systems. Platform HPC increased compute power from 9 to 21.5 teraflops, cut power consumption rates and costs and provided flexible, responsive support.
IBM® has created a proprietary implementation of the open-source Hadoop MapReduce run-time that leverages the IBM Platform™ Symphony distributed computing middleware while maintaining application-level compatibility with Apache Hadoop.
Whether you’re looking to move over an entire IT function like e-mail, or simply to provision more storage or processing, a successful outsourcing project requires a cohesive strategy with clearly defined business problems, goals, stakeholders and processes. This white paper outlines 12 critical success factors to consider when developing such a strategy.
The term “Big Data” has become virtually synonymous with “schema on read” unstructured data analysis and handling techniques like Hadoop. These “schema on read” techniques have been most famously exploited on relatively ephemeral human-readable data like retail trends, twitter sentiment, social network mining, log files, etc.
It is imperative that emerging IaaS providers and MSPs gain deep insights into existing pricing models so they can attain low cost structures, increase profitability, boost competitiveness, and improve customer retention.
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.
