  • Week in review podcast: EMC goes cloud building; and more
    If every cloud has a silver lining does it have fine print too If it seems like cloud storage prices are getting cheaper every day it s because they are Amazon Google and Microsoft recently dropped the pricing of their cloud storage by an average of 1 cent to 2 cents per GB which means a savings of about 15 for their customers But despite these price cuts cloud storage customers need to keep an eye on the cost of individual transactions which can cost many times more than base storage fees Quantum of virtual Solace And earlier this week Quantum Corp unveiled its new DXi V1000 virtual backup appliance which the vendor said can substantially reduce the size of data sets moved to the cloud The virtual appliance platform is a key part of Quantum s cloud strategy Quantum s first partner for the cloud service is the Xerox owned Affiliated Computer Services which is already using the Quantum platform for backup and DR services Sharing is caring And over at our UK Data Storage Buzz blog we report on a recent Gartner study showing the market share of some of the storage industry s heavyweights that put EMC at the top with 32 percent market share But SearchStorage co UK s most recent internal Purchasing Intentions survey found that in Europe the results are somewhat different Their study based on a poll of 302 European storage professionals about their storage purchasing habits including who they got their disk systems from That study puts HP at the top spot and drops HDS in favor of Dell I ve got file sharing on a cloudy day And earlier this week Egnyte Inc launched Egnyte HybridCloud File Sharing for the Enterprise which the vendor said allows customers to scale up to 1 billion files per account and up to 10 000 concurrent users without affecting network performance Vineet Jain Egnyte s CEO and co founder said he s looking to push online file sharing deeper into Fortune 10 000 companies Egnyte s aim is to get customers to eliminate their file servers and the need for virtual private networks VPNs so employees can access and collaborate on files stored in the cloud Dig Deeper on Primary storage and storage hardware All News Problem Solve Advantages of using an object storage system Dell storage products roadmap includes server flash primary dedupe EMC sees bright future for hybrid SSD cloud models Hitachi Data Systems moves into unified storage architecture with HUS Load More View All Dell storage products roadmap includes server flash primary dedupe EMC sees bright future for hybrid SSD cloud models Hitachi Data Systems moves into unified storage architecture with HUS Dell EqualLogic supports 10 Gigabit Ethernet copper for iSCSI SAN Load More View All News Advantages of using an object storage system FC SAN vs iSCSI SAN Part 1 Reliability and performance FC SAN vs iSCSI SAN Part 2 Cost and scalability considerations A beginners guide to iSCSI View All

  • Say goodbye to shipping backup tapes from remote offices with file virtualization
    it is important to store backup tapes offsite That way the tapes are protected against possible destruction in the event of fire flood hurricane etc While I wholeheartedly agree with the importance of protecting your backup tapes offsite tape storage isn t a perfect solution File virtualization allows you to store data offsite without actually having to ship your backup tapes offsite although it is still a good idea to store tapes that are unlikely to be needed offsite The basic idea behind this technique is that many file virtualization products including the DFS feature that is built into Windows allow you to create replica file servers These replica servers have traditionally been used for load balancing or for site resilience but they can be used as a way of protecting your data as well Placing a replica server in an offsite data center essentially provides you with an offsite backup that is always up to date Keep in mind that a remote replica is not a replacement for a traditional tape backup or other forms of backup Instead remote replicas tend to be a defense in depth solution that is used as a means of augmenting the existing backup strategy In fact I have seen organizations make tape backups of both their primary file servers and their remote replica servers That way there are two copies of every backup tape one copy that is stored locally and another copy that is stored in another data center While the idea of having duplicate backup tapes may sound appealing you may be wondering why you even need to continue to make tape backups if you have replica file servers Replica servers are more of a resiliency solution than a true backup solution In other words if a file server experienced a hardware failure then the workload could be shifted to replica servers so as to prevent the users from experiencing an outage Once the failed server is brought back online the replica servers update the failed server with any changes that have occurred This is why so many organizations use create local replicas as well as file server replicas in remote data centers What file server replicas can t completely protect against is data corruption Suppose for example that a file on an organization s primary file server became corrupted In all likelihood the corrupted file would be replicated to the replica file servers meaning that eventually none of the replica servers would contain a valid copy of the file Some file virtualization products offer a feature that allows you to either delay or rollback the replication process as a way of protecting against this sort of issue But without this sort of feature a tape backup may be your only safeguard against file corruption Although file virtualization is not a substitute for a tape backup having replica servers can help you to quickly recover from a disaster while still allowing you to store a copy of your data offsite Many

  • ROBO Part 1: Consolidating remote offices
    processes and infrastructures will preclude aggressive physical consolidation Only when an IT team thinks about all three of these concepts together resource consolidation management controls and optimisation approaches can they feel confident about picking the appropriate approach for what stays at the edge of the enterprise what goes to the main data centre and how it should all be managed Resource consolidation This strategy centres on removing locally deployed storage and servers from ROBOs and replacing the IT gear with various wide area gateway technologies terminal emulation and software services delivered from the main data centre Depending on the workflow and an organisation s needs resource consolidation can be aggressive or nearly nonexistent Because of recent technology innovations that have enabled this broad concept resource consolidation has garnered the lion s share of attention But no matter how attractive a proposition it is for most companies consolidating all remote office data into the main data centre is a significant undertaking According to our survey 19 of our respondents have more than 50 of their production data resident in ROBO locations with another 21 indicating they have between 26 and 50 of their production data residing in ROBOs see Percent of total production data that resides in ROBOs below For most enterprises the reality is that a great deal of that data will remain at the edges of the enterprise for the foreseeable future Accordingly it s the coordinated management of edge and core data that will be one of the major ROBO IT tasks of the next several years But there are some key areas where we see users agreeing on what should be consolidated out of the ROBO Approximately 46 of respondents indicate a strong desire to consolidate database servers and storage out of their remote sites while approximately 40 indicate the same strong inclination for consolidation of their app servers and IT management tools This indicates some very powerful momentum and explains much of the attraction of available wide area application acceleration products But many companies would ideally like to consolidate resources on a case by case basis Specifically our survey found that IT teams are using a combination of local deployment and remote delivery of services from the main data centre Approximately 54 of surveyed users indicate a desire to deliver file services in this mixed manner while 52 want to conduct backup operations in some combination of local and remote deployments Again this indicates that users want to maintain some resources at the edges of the organisation But why The answer is simple The desire for selective consolidation reflects the realities about the requirements and management dispositions of firms For many enterprises with larger remote sites or distributed workflows maintaining significant ROBO IT resources is often highly desirable there are often compelling availability or recovery reasons for keeping business critical processes at least partially at the edge Resource consolidation technologies while exciting and powerful shouldn t be treated as a one sise fits all proposition While
