White Papers: Storage

Storage has ramifications both in terms of management strategy and physical technology. In this section we explore each individually and their intersection.

A Pure Primer

AI, Analytics and the Future of your Enterprise. A Smarter World. Everybody’s talking about big data. Huge promises have been made about its role in driving enterprises forward. But few organizations are realizing its true benefits. For those able to put data to good use, there’s much to be excited about. Data is transforming not […]

Modern Storage Accelerates Data Insights, Speeding Innovation

Deep learning opens up new worlds of possibility in artifi cial intelligence, enabled by advances in computational capacity, the explosion in data, and the advent of deep neural networks. But data is evolving quickly and legacy storage systems are not keeping up. Advanced AI applications require a modern all-fl ash storage infrastructure that is built […]

The Data Economy Report

Industry Insights to Balance Infrastructure and Applications for Digital Business Digital technology has arguably been the biggest disruptor for individuals and organisations in the last twenty years. It has changed how we communicate, how we shop, how we spend our time and how we develop and grow our businesses. For businesses, digital has not just […]

Flash Storage as a Strategic IT Asset

For decades, enterprise storage has been widely viewed as—let’s face it—an important but largely commoditized IT necessity. After all, every application needs storage. But following a highly innovative period in the 1980s and ‘90s, advances in enterprise storage slowed to a crawl compared with other IT functions. In fact, storage vendors’ products all evolved to be quite […]

The 3-Stage journey to the all-flash cloud

CIOs and other leading IT decision makers are striving to deliver cloud economics and agility from their on-premises infrastructures. Using all-flash storage is a key step in building a modern cloud data center. Enterprise IT leaders are facing critical decisions on how to best deploy data center and cloud resources to enable digital transformation. The […]

Innovations in All-Flash Storage Deliver a New Approach to Unstructured Data

There have always been certain workloads and applications that stretch the boundaries of storage technologies. While this is nothing new, the number of these workloads is poised to expand dramatically, fueled by the growth of initiatives such as big data analytics, mobility, cloud computing, social media and the Internet of Things (IoT).

FLASHBLADE FOR GENOMICS

The evolution of genomics in recent decades has seen the volume of sequencing rise dramatically as a result of lower costs. Massive growth in the quantities of data created by sequencing has greatly increased analytical challenges, and placed ever-increasing demands on compute and storage infrastructure. Researchers have leveraged high-performance computing environments and cluster computing to […]

FLASHBLADE – Leveraging All-Flash Storage

In the last 10 years, the rate of computer and network performance has outpaced storage. Compute nodes with multiple cores, advanced memory technology, high speed bus, and fast network NICs have kept pace with network speeds of 25GbE/40GbE, and even up to 100GbE. Unfortunately, most storage architectures, even the new clustered scale up/out architectures, are […]
