Buyer's Guide to Enterprise Storage Resources
Organizations of all sizes face similar challenges when managing storage@not enough capacity or protection. Help has arrived with Internet small computer system

To ensure support the performance levels needed for his Oracle databases. He conducted benchmark tests with Oracle's Orion Calibration utility using small random I/O workloads to simulate transactions. On an EqualLogic PS3800 and an EMC® CX-500i, both with the same number of disks running at the same speed ' 15K RPM, Monroe says, We were seeing about Read More

Collaborative tools are becoming essential to sharing data in today’s office environment. You need a solution that can grow to accommodate new projects and uses

disk arrays  will be caught by disk RAID. Another drive failure in the same array will be caught by nRAID. Also, due to the method by which nRAID creates data replicas, even multiple nodes can go down without interruption of service. In fact, (here comes the really cool part), by physically locating half of your storage nodes in one location, and the other half in a different location, you can suffer the complete failure of a location (a failure of half the storage nodes), and still keep running! There is no additiona Read More
New Storage Array from Sun
Sun has launched an attempt to break into the ranks of large-scale and enterprise storage system vendors like EMC, IBM, and Compaq.

disk arrays  latency periods, optimizing physical disk I/O access patterns and reducing the number of drive accesses, which are the bottlenecks in most RAID storage systems. The system scales capacity, performance and availability in a linear and predictable fashion, with a capacity expansion range of 162 gigabytes (GB) to 88 terabytes (TB). As capacity increases, performance increases by a predictable amount, and availability scales as additional data paths and redundancy are added. This provides for higher performan Read More
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

disk arrays  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. Read More
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

disk arrays  , and Microsoft Virtual Disk Service (VDS) technologies. Configuration Recommendations These tests were run by using SQL Server 2005 with Service Pack 1 (SP1) running on Windows® 2003 with SP1; the only fixes implemented were for security. We used the Microsoft iSCSI software Initiator version 2.01 and Cisco 3570G Ethernet switch. The iSCSI SAN consisted of three EqualLogic PS Series 3800XV arrays containing a total of 48 15K RPM Serial-attached SCSI (SAS) disk drives. Hardware Considerations SQL Server Read More

Avoid using passwords that contain telephone numbers, dictionary words, birthdates, and social security numbers. Make your passwords eight characters or more, and mix in numerical characters and upper and lower-case characters. When shopping online, shop from companies that you know.

Compaq and IBM Alliance for Storage
Compaq and IBM will now cross-sell each other’s storage products, and will work together to make their storage hardware and software interoperable.

disk arrays  IBM 10,000 RPM hard disk drives. IBM will support Compaq's VersaStor technology for storage SAN-wide virtualization. Each company plans to provide equipment, software, and staffing to support each other's open storage networking/SAN customer centers. At these centers, customers can see for themselves the interoperability of both companies' technologies and products where real-world testing demonstrates the value of open storage networking solutions. Market Impact As with most agreements of this nature, Read More
IBM's Four-CPU Wintel-Based Rack Servers High Performance, High Cost
IBM's four-CPU servers, the Netfinity 5500 M20 and 7000 M10, yield top notch web-focused benchmark figures, but also very high price/performance figures for

(Market share figures for Intel servers is shown in Table 1 and Graph 1.) The rackmount market is growing, partly due to server market growth in general, and partly due to a shift from pedestal/floor-standing/ tower servers. We believe that rackmount servers will be about 60% of the general server market within 1-2 Read More

Lexias also offers enterprise pricing packages for licenses purchased in bulk. User Recommendations If your organization is resource constrained and does not have the capital or infrastructure to invest in VPNs or private leased-lines, Lexiguard is a fast and easy solution. If you are a startup, with limited capital, and have highly Read More

IBM For the Netfinity 4000R: Availability: These servers, although announced, are not yet available. Fuzzy focus: Although it is based on the Network Engines WebEngine (an appliance), it is unclear whether this server will be an appliance, or just a very short GP server.

MCI WorldCom and Critical Path Power into Outsourced Messaging
MCI WorldCom and Critical Path plan to offer the following services: Web mail service, starting at $2 per user, per month, POP3 mail service starting at $3.50

disk arrays  month with 20MB of disk space. Outsourced, or managed e-mail is the next logical progression within the messaging industry. This is primarily due to the increasing costs of internal support and associated technical headaches. As most now know, the Information Technology department, for the majority of organizations has turned into a revolving door, making employee retention close to impossible. Messaging professionals are not inexpensive; claiming salaries into the 100s of thousands of dollars. Couple Read More
How Do You Categorize Notebooks?
The notebook computer market has become one of the remaining battlegrounds for computer manufacturers. Our purpose here is to define the notebook market

disk arrays  one or more hard disk drives (HDDs) as their storage requirements increase. Until recently, notebooks did not allow this, so storage-heavy users were limited by how large a disk manufacturers could cram into the system, and hope an upgrade was possible as disk densities increased. However, more and more, we are seeing notebooks capable of housing a second HDD. The space constraints of notebooks can lead to tradeoffs regarding which other drives are present in the system. A typical desktop will have Read More

Disk storage will grow at exponential rates, given that a one-minute voice-mail message will take up 240 times more disk storage space than a one-page e-mail. Lucent Octel's clients are not implementing the Unified Inbox on a corporate wide level, but for specific departments comprised mainly of remote users in order to reduce implementation costs. Lucent must develop a compression method to improve on the 240K per minute storage requirements. Vendor Recommendations Lucent Read More
OS SmackDown!
In the latest escalation in the battle between Windows and Linux, directions on how to replace each with the other have been published on the Web by their

disk arrays  2000/NT4 on the newly-freed-up disk drive. Not to be outdone, Linux-philes have countered by publishing instructions on how to remove a Windows OS and replace it with Linux. To close the circle, Paul Ferris, Editor at Linux Today, highlighted the silliness by publishing his own mostly-joking piece on how to uninstall both Windows and Linux. (His directions lead to a wiped out disk drive, of course.) Market Impact Alone, these documents will have minimal market impact, except to provide fodder for the Read More
