    like backup and archive or backup and archive and media servers Lots of new forms are deliverable as appliances We are very very keen on this at EMC and we see it as a big opportunity Nick said the company s researchers are also hard at work on virtualisation There is clearly a gap between what customers want from storage virtualisation and the current state of the technology he said Here in the Chief Technology Officer s office we are working to close that gap Flash memory is also in Nick s thoughts Flash technology is going to find its place as another tier in the storage hierarchy given its characteristics of price performance improvements in latency and manufacturing scale driving down prices Research will address some of the issues given number of writes to the media and the time will come when it becomes an acceptable commercial scale technology as a tier of enterprise storage but not a replacement for disk Storage management software is also in Nick s sights as he believes current management tools lack the automated policy features that make it easy for businesses to adopt information lifecycle management Automation he added is important given the ever increasing amount of data being created and can therefore ease storage administration burdens if it becomes more sophisticated Another technology he hopes will become simpler is tools that allow interoperability between different types of storage networks Today there is a compromise between IP access and management of that access he said The industry is calling out for some reconciliation and that s why you efforts around fibre channel over Ethernet We are very much involved to ensure freedom of protocol and also right degrees of management WAN based access and transparent data migrations are still very much desired by customers he added Storage technologies need to catch up to customer demands for this capability Dig Deeper on Data storage vendors All News Problem Solve SGI adopts hybrid storage for clustered NAS Symantec aims Data Insight 3 0 at unstructured data management IT data storage priorities 2012 Virtualization dedupe and cloud NetApp announces Big Data solutions as market grows Load More View All SGI adopts hybrid storage for clustered NAS Symantec aims Data Insight 3 0 at unstructured data management NetApp announces Big Data solutions as market grows I spy web servers which don t lie Load More View All News IT data storage priorities 2012 Virtualization dedupe and cloud VNXe the jewel as EMC caned for broken record VNX marketing Sun ZFS 101 View All Problem solve ADS BY GOOGLE Latest TechTarget resources CIO AU Security AU Data Backup Disaster Recovery SMB Storage Storage Channel Search CIO com au Internet of Things Food safety apps set to emerge Food safety could emerge as a key application for the Internet of Things in the coming months providing real time visibility in Cloud security culture a building block for today s businesses As organizations today move more data to the cloud
