Redefining the Economics of Storage

As technology evolves, so should your storage solution. Flash technology and software defined storage are two approaches that save organizations money and are becoming more frequently adapted for that reason.  Flash technology also makes storage more agile.

This white paper assesses a storage service solution that frees IT staff from day-to-day tasks, so they can take on more important and urgent business initiatives.

  • Modern Infrastructure – March 2015

    There are plenty of new approaches to address ever-growing data needs, including scale-out vs. scale-up designs, the shift from hierarchical file systems to object storage, and the Hadoop Distributed File System. Pretty soon there will be absolutely no excuse not to store every crumb of data ever created.

    Delivering Windows applications remotely is another area that could use some improvement, especially in today’s age of tablets and mobile devices. App transformation takes existing Windows applications and intelligently delivers them to the target device, similar to how responsive web design principles package web pages differently depending on whether the client is a traditional PC, tablet or smartphone.

    VMware, meanwhile seems to have hit a home run among users with its latest release to its venerable vSphere virtualization platform. Some things, it seems, get better with age. 

  • Dell’s Versatile PowerEdge Server Portfolio Accelerates Workloads and Innovates Server Management

    Mobile, cloud, social, and big data technologies are becoming more and more popular and changing the dynamics of IT data centers and workloads in the process. New servers are needed to deliver faster application performance, better availability, and the ability to meet stringent SLAs while handling complex workloads.

    So how can you deliver a new level of IT flexibility for both your traditional and emerging applications? Access this white paper to learn how next generation PowerEdge servers from Dell allow you to:

    • Accelerate application performance
    • Improve data center efficiency with tiered storage
    • Grow data centers and private clouds easily
    • Deliver increased automation for easy management
    • And more
