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 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.
In this white paper, we look at various cloud models, and assess their suitability to solve IT challenges. We provide recommendations on what to look for in a cloud provider. Finally, we take a look at the IBM Cloud portfolio.
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.
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’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 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.
