Enabling Greater Performance and Efficiency with Hybrid Storage Pools


Enterprise applications require fast access to large volumes of information, and are pushing the performance limits of traditional storage architectures. Although it's easy to add storage capacity by adding more disk drives and arrays, it's not so easy to scale storage I/O performance. See how hybrid storage pools enable a new approach to storage architectures--increasing performance, reducing costs, and simplifying management.

How to Make Virtualized iSCSI SANs Work for You


Enterprises of all sizes are building flexible storage infrastructures by using iSCSI and virtualization technologies that let them allocate and shift storage area network (SAN) resources dynamically in response to the demands of their virtualized server environments. Find out how a virtualized infrastructure with virtualization technologies can help you achieve an IT infrastructure that is simple to manage and scale.

SQL Server Technical Briefing


iSCSI storage area networks (SANs) offer an alternative for building SANs. Consolidating storage in a SAN offers storage management and scaling benefits for data centers, and iSCSI support in Windows Server 2003 makes connecting servers to an iSCSI SAN easier and more affordable. Read this technical briefing to understand best practices and the benefits of using an iSCSI SAN with SQL Server 2005.

The Agentless Backup/Recovery Architecture: How It Works to Reduce Costs, Bolster Security, and Simplify Scaling in Remote Office Environments


IT managers today face plenty of problems when it comes to protecting remote office data—problems that agentless architecture could eliminate. Many organizations outsource their data protection, which can be costly. But an agentless architecture disk-to-disk (D2D) software solution can offer your business bottom-line benefits that range from lower administrative costs to pay-as-you-grow scalability and increased security.

PC Encryption: Eyes Wide Open


While the virtues of encrypting PC data are extolled by vendors and the press alike, some painful truths go largely unmentioned. Whether necessary for compliance or state breach disclosure law, or for doing business in a state requiring it, encryption is necessary but difficult. Learn where existing encryption solutions are failing, and find out how emerging tools and trends can make encryption better, and easier.

E-mail Archiving: A Business-critical Application


Small and medium businesses are especially vulnerable to disruptions caused by e-mail loss, compliance demands, and the threat of e-discovery. Yet these companies may not have adequate resources to deal with these risks on their own. Learn how your business can benefit from e-mail archiving, and in particular a hosted e-mail archiving service, to combat data loss, and realize greater productivity and competitiveness.

disk arrays  email also requires additional disk storage, and depending on the software deployed, may require an archiving server or servers. This, in turn, puts an additional strain on existing network administrators and system backup operations. Also, archiving all the important email on-site assumes that the facility will never fall victim to fire, flood, or other catastrophe, so off-site backup copies must also be made. If companies-particularly small and medium sized businesses-perform a complete cost analysis Read More

External Drive Backup Warning


Backing up critical data on an external drive provides only minimal protection against one type of data loss: hard drive failure and nothing else. External drives are easily damaged, lost, or stolen. Portable drive backups are rarely taken off-site and are insecure, time-consuming, and limited. And when an external drive holding key data no longer works, what will you do? There’s a better way to back up data. Learn more.
