The Best Gets Better: Automated Disk Maintenance


Most operating systems use logical file systems optimized for traditional magnetic hard disk drives (HDD). As a result, users adopting newer solid state drive (SSD) technology often see poor write-speed performance caused by free space fragmentation. Learn how new automatic disk maintenance technologies can improve SSD performance and extend the life of SSD devices by minimizing free space fragmentation.

Compaq's High-End Wintel-based Rack Servers - Working Hard to Stay #1


Compaq Computer Corporation, the #1 volume manufacturer of PC Servers, both US and worldwide, is fighting a strong challenge by Dell Computer. This note assess the strengths and weaknesses of its four-CPU rackmount servers.

Flexibility: The 5500R can be converted to a freestanding unit 6400R: Functionality: The ProLiant 6400R houses up to four Xeon CPUs in a 4U footprint , with only one other vendor (Dell) currently providing a similarly dense offering. The 6400R has more hot-swappable hard disk drives [CPQ: 4x1.0 , Dell:3x1.0 ], providing greater flexibility for in-box RAID configurations. The 6400R features HotPlug PCI for systems running Windows NT 4.0. This is 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.

Improving Backup Performance with Defragmentation


As organizational storage allocation requirements multiply, the time required to back up file-based data also continues to increase. While software vendors continue making advancements in technology to speed up the disk fragmentation process, it continues to remain an issue—one that needs to be addressed at the file system level. Defragmenting the hard drive volume prior to performing the backup may be the answer.

In-Memory Analytics: A Multi-Dimensional Study


The primary bottleneck to high-performance multidimensional analysis has been slow hard drive speed—the time it takes for data to be transferred from disk storage to random access memory (RAM). With crashing RAM prices and 64-bit addressing, in-memory architecture provides new and innovative solutions for online analytical processing (OLAP). This article looks at why and how in-memory technology transforms analytic applications for BI.

Cubes present a multi-dimensional perspective of a business and are typically built from several data sources. As the volume of business data grows, storage requirements for cubes also grow. The cubic puzzle has two pieces: the update process (periodic process to keep cubes Read More

File Fragmentation, SANs, NAS, and RAID


SANs, NAS devices, corporate servers, and high-end workstations all suffer the effects of fragmentation because of their multiple physical disk drives. This is attributed to the impact of fragmentation on the logical allocation of files and their physical distribution. The solution to this problem: implementing an automatic defragmentation software solution, together with intricate modern hardware technologies.

Why You Should Take a Hard Look at Your ERP System: Dynamo, Dinosaur, or Difficulty on the Horizon?


Is your business running as well as it should be? Your ERP system may be the dynamo it was intended to be, but if it has become outdated or outrageously expensive to operate—a dinosaur or a devil in the making—chances are it is doing more harm than good in today’s increasingly global world. Regardless of your business or industry, the time has come to examine your ERP system dispassionately. Know what needs to be considered.

Compliance: Is Remote Office Data Your Achilles Heel?


Would spending millions of dollars and countless hours securing your data center be enough for it to pass a compliance audit? While many businesses work hard at securing their data centers, they often forget to secure remote office data. With the consequences of non-compliance ranging from financial penalties to job loss and worse, it could mean the end of your business. Don’t let compliance become your Achilles heel.

Fusion ioControl n5 Hybrid Storage Architecture


Conventional hybrid storage solutions use NVRAM (non-volatile RAM/flash) to cache data before writing to disk, then augment performance with an SSD read cache. While such solutions generally offer acceptable performance for small datasets, they are ultimately limited by the configuration and number of SSDs that can be deployed. In contrast, a hybrid storage approach can leverage PCle-based flash to provide better performance. Read this white paper to better understand the improvements and benefits of a PCIe flash hybrid.
