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 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.
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.

This planning guide looks at the importance of environmental concerns in the age of heightened corporate responsibility, and identifies the considerations for moving to a clean energy model for data centers.
This benchmark analysis examines the relative performance of major VM components including virtual cores, memory, block storage, and internal network for Internap AgileCLOUD and Amazon Web Services (AWS) ECS/EBS.
The traditional data center model is like the old cable TV and music models, which forced you to buy and pay for all 189 channels and all ten songs, even if you only wanted a few. The evolved data center model, in contrast, is like the new TV and music models – you only buy the show or the song you want.
It’s the last storage architecture you will ever need—regardless of whether your organization is a small or midsized business, a large global enterprise, or a service provider. With a range of models to meet the needs of small to large data centers running key business applications up through enterprise-wide deployment of mission-critical applications and beyond, HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage has you covered.
This business-oriented white paper summarizes the wide-ranging benefits of the Hadoop platform, highlights common data processing use cases and explores examples of specific use cases in vertical industries.
This white paper shows how Equinix has created the Equinix Media and Entertainment Ecosystem (EMEE) — a solution that leverages our global facilities and the software defined network (SDN) provisioning power of the Equinix Cloud Exchange.
Learn more about these trends and how Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) software can help your staff improve productivity, improve awareness of potential issues, and enhance forecasting and decision making.
Now that the technology sector as a whole is becoming increasingly user friendly, transparent and hands on, it makes sense for colocation data centers to offer a higher level of insight and transparency into their clients’ individual environments.
This whitepaper explores why it is important for companies to adopt a new way of thinking about how technology can create an extension or re-invention of the organisation’s strategy, mission, processes and behaviors.
