  • Store Less, Spend Less: Managing Data According to Its Economic Value

    The term “big data” is now passing into the common vernacular. Although initially as much about the power of business analytics and data mining, the semantics have now swung to encapsulate data that is just big and of course, resource hungry, whether in terms of management, sheer storage capacity, or budgets. In that respect, the numbers are getting increasingly alarming: Estimates suggest that 90% of the world’s information was created in the last two years, and 2.5 quintillion bytes of data are created daily. Download this informative whitepaper to gain further insights into the conflicting demands of storage management.

  • Research Report: The Virtualization Playbook

    The increasing complexity of the government enterprise—and the increasing volume and complexity of the data being managed—is forcing agency IT managers to rethink how they manage the infrastructure. Virtualization is at the center of that. By virtualizing key elements of the data center, agencies gain flexibility, scalability and manageability. And those gains are magnified when agencies integrate those systems into a cohesive whole. At the same time, IT managers are looking to bolster their infrastructures with emerging storage and storage management options. The data center of the future is taking shape now.
