  • Storage Magazine: Cloud DR - Cloud's "Killer App"

    Cloud-based disaster recovery (DR) is shaping up as a killer app for the cloud. It’s cheaper than other DR arrangements, can be implemented quickly and recoveries can be lightning fast. It’s a pretty direct route to solid data protection, but there are key decisions to make and some gotchas to watch out for.

    Many companies want the convenience of a storage cloud service, but don’t want to ship their data off-site. OpenStack, an open source collection comprising a cloud operating system, an orchestration layer and service apps, can use existing storage resources to create an internal cloud storage service.

    NetApp, EMC and Dell all earned high marks from users in the ninth annual Quality Awards service and reliability survey for NAS systems. EMC and Dell finished in a virtual dead heat in the enterprise division, while NetApp outdistanced EMC by a slightly wider margin in the midrange group.

  • Backup Appliances: Key Players and Criteria for Selection

    Backup appliances may have been created with SMB in mind, but that doesn’t mean larger companies can’t derive value from them. In fact, recent scalability enhancements on both the hardware and software side are making this technology an attractive option for the enterprise.

    This E-Guide provides an up-to-date definition of today’s backup appliances and points out the pros and cons of using them. It also examines the key players in the marketplace and highlights one offering that enables quicker restores through optimized “hot-hot” offsite replication capabilities.
