Riverbed and EMC Deliver Capacity-Optimized Cloud Storage for Backup, Recovery, Archiving, and DR
Many innovative enterprises are turning to cloud storage to meet their data protection demands. Cloud storage promises an elastic “pay-as-you-go” storage pool for backups and archives, which not only reduces expensive up-front backup disk and tape costs, but eliminates the need to maintain them off-site. This paper explores the factors that are driving the move to cloud storage and then introduces a solution from Riverbed and EMC that enables organizations to perform cloud backup and replication at LAN-like performance that is as reliable and secure as local disk or tape at a lower cost.
From VM "sprawl" to VM "stall" - the top challenge for enterprise virtualization managers in 2011.
Taneja Group Emerging Market Forecast (EMF) on Cloud Storage Products (Abstract Only)
Taneja Group is pleased to announce the general availability of the 2011 Taneja Group Emerging Market Forecast for Cloud Storage. Designed to be an invaluable resource in your marketing strategy, product planning, and competitive efforts, this EMF presents Taneja Group’s latest research and analysis of the emerging and rapidly growing market for cloud storage products. The market forecasts and perspectives in this EMF report focus on both large and small product categories in what is a $4B market today, which will grow to almost $10B by 2014. The EMF is the result of extensive interviews that Taneja Group conducted with cloud storage product providers in late 2010, and the intersection of Taneja Group ex- pertise in user trends, product capabilities, and emerging market patterns.
What you'll learn in this tip: Over the past few years, cloud storage options have changed significantly and so have its use cases. Primarily used in previous years by developers as a data warehouse during specific projects, traditional IT teams at companies across the country are now turning to the cloud for their production needs. This shift is determining what cloud storage technologies will be developed and when.
Arun Taneja's 4 "Cloud Storage" lessons under "Classroom" section:
1. Cloud Storage Landscape-OnDemand
2. Public Cloud Storage-OnDemand
3. Private Cloud and Hybrid Cloud Storage-OnDemand
4. Cloud Storage RO-OnDemand
In this tip series, Arun Taneja, founder and president of Taneja Group, offers his best cloud tips to users. In part one, Arun tells users how to ensure they get their data out of a cloud storage repository if they decide to switch cloud storage service providers or bring their data back in-house.
New survey results from TwinStrata, a cloud-based backup and recovery provider, highlight the cloud's growing popularity as a data protection platform. Seventy-two percent of cloud storage users polled by the company claimed to be able to recover data within 24 hours, a healthy 10 percent lead over non-cloud-storage users.
Object storage is certainly a hot topic, and it's rising above it's old data retention "jail" perception. And for good reasons. We think due to cloud storage building and adoption, increasingly mobile users and distributed apps, the benefits of active archiving and retaining ever bigger data sets that having a solid object storage strategy becomes significantly important going into 2013. EMC is aiming to be a key part of that object strategy - today releasing Atmos 2.1 making wider adoption not only possible, but more profitable for both in-house cloud builders and service providers.
With the advent of big data and cloud-scale delivery, companies are racing to deploy cutting-edge services. “Extreme” applications like massive voice and image processing or complex financial analysis modeling that can push storage systems to their limits. Examples of some high visibility solutions include large-scale image pattern recognition applications and financial risk management based on high-speed decision-making. These ground-breaking solutions, made up of very different activities but with similar data storage challenges, create incredible new lines of business representing significant revenue potential.
