  • NetApp calls Oracle “Crazy Ivan,” digs at HP’s blogfest
    stoush is brewing between IBM and EMC as the former has issued a white paper which in a massive surprise says IBM is good and EMC is not We ve long been sceptical of this kind of marketing tactic which hardly seems an objective assessment Another tactic that has some folks worried is the practise of schlepping bloggers onto your campus and ruthlessly educating them for a couple of days about your kit and no one else s HP did just this a couple of weeks back and the blogosphere reacted with posts a plenty But NetApp reckons HP may have used the event to spread if not FUD then some mistruths as visible in this post Storage blogger Steve Foskett has responded to this kind of assertion with a strongly worded post insisting that if HP tried to brainwash him it sure didn t work and couldn t have worked on other attendees too So you can understand a little of what went on at the event and judge for yourself here s a video of the shindig from Ruptured Monkey No love for EMC One notable feature of this week s post is that there s not a lot of love for EMC out there this week other than from one very unlikely source HDS Hu Yoshida who agrees with EMC s Chuck Hollis on the matter of data deduplication But 3PAR s Marc Farley labels EMC s unified storage platform a fantasy and Drunken Data says that during recent chats with storage users they say they re down on the company because its kit is costly to buy and maintain Even EMC isn t in love with itself or what it insists is its old self as Chuck Hollis explains why he doesn t really want to talk storage strategy any more Another online argument features Emulex and Brocade Instigated by the former it features something called UEFI and its impact on storage network performance 3Par s storage RAP has a dig at Brocade too HDS and Cinetica are also having a bit of a stoush over storage virtualisation Interest in FileStore Something we did not expect was big blogosphere reaction to Symantec s new cloud play FileStore but it s out there Storage Switzerland leads the pack which includes Storagebod and The Storage Architect All are broadly positive VMware s SRM 4 0 is also well loved thanks to vTacit and Virtual Geek See you next week 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

  • HDS, EMC out as Suncorp cuts storage costs by 40% with NetApp cloud play
    costs were rising 100 a year and users were unhappy as provisioning new storage was slow partly due to the vagaries of Fibre Channel Business people would ask us to provision 2TB knowing they needed 100GB he says just to ensure they could scale without waiting Suncorp has since consolidated its data centres and having closed its Chatswood Sydney facility this week now operates three and plans to close another facility shortly 70 of the company s storage now resides on NetApp FAS6070 FAS6080 and FAS6030 devices which operate as IP SANs IBM storage equipment and Brocade fibre channel networking kit remain in place as some Suncorp applications were designed with fibre channel in mind and rebuilding them No product no worries In late August NetApp announced that much of the technology in its new data management tool Data ONTAP 8 was based on work it did at Suncorp and Telstra For Suncorp s Cameron NetApp s on the job learning was not a problem I come from the school of thinking that you do not screw your partner he said I am outcome focussed If there was some peripheral benefit to the partner so what I would rather get the outcome for IP is too costly Cameron is however eyeing off fibre channel over Ethernet as a way to further reduce complexity Cameron adds that his team is on track to achieve 65 storage utilisation a ratio he feels is about as good as it is possible to achieve Along with improved utilisation Cameron says faulty backups have fallen to 4 thanks to the snapshot technology acquired from NetApp Another indicator of the project s success is a fall in the amount of data centre space the company requires We planned our new data centre to occupy 2000 square metres but we have filled 500 thanks to aggressive virtualisation of storage and servers Cameron says adding that he cannot foresee when the company will need all its space and is leasing out unused capacity Cultural change Cameron said cultural change has been as important to the organisation as the move from physical to logical We have applied agile methodologies right across the whole IT department Every project manager has to run projects in an agile sense and we have established an agile academy that has been really important to make sure people go about solving problems in an innovative way A services model now pervades the IT group too We are overlaying a services model on the infrastructure group which provides a shared service to 20 000 seats We say I will give you a server or piece of storage and we overlay that with services Users ask for an application with certain qualities and ask us to provide the service That is quite a cultural change Cameron told SearchStorage ANZ he believes Suncorp s new IT structure could not be achieved without virtualisation which the company sources from VMWare s vSphere Dig Deeper on NAS hardware All News
