Too Many Files? NAS Is the Answer

Published By: HP     Published Date: Aug 03, 2009
The usual cure for exploding file volumes is to add more general purpose file servers. That strategy eventually leads to server sprawl, which brings with it more management complexity, stranded disk capacity, wildly differing storage utilization rates and slower file access. Network-attached storage (NAS) appliances can add file serving capacity that's more easily managed, shareable, more scalable and more efficient than a sprawl of general purpose servers. Read this online article to learn about three basic considerations that can help simplify your NAS buying decision.

5 Myths of Cloud Computing

Published By: HP     Published Date: Oct 01, 2014
Cloud computing is a model for enabling ubiquitous, convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications, and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction. At the time this definition was published, “cloud” was already part of industry parlance, and was beginning to take root in the general lexicon. Additionally, global business spending for infrastructure and services related to the cloud had topped $78 billion. This year, enterprise spending on the cloud will reach an estimated $174 billion, and is expected to climb to $235 billion by 2017.2 Inevitably, as both business IT and consumer mindsets evolve toward the cloud in coming years, we will continue to witness dramatic growth in IT products in some areas, and significant reductions in other areas—resulting in a reshaping of the industry as a whole.

IBM Redefining Enterprise Systems – Charles King Report

Published By: IBM     Published Date: Jan 09, 2014
Today, large organizations are being buffeted by a host of changes, many of them unexpected or unfamiliar. Business information is virtually exploding in size, kind and locale, taxing the abilities of even the most progressive enterprises to keep up. Mobile technologies and business analytics that were once exclusively used by employees with specialized needs and skills are now common across the entire workforce. As a result of all this, IT is bending under the strain of developing and delivering necessary new services while at the same time maintaining core service quality. This report will consider these issues, as well as IBM’s position in and efforts around developing next generation enterprise systems solutions, including its System z mainframes, POWER7+ processor-based Power Systems servers and System Storage offerings focused on those areas and use cases.
