 disk raid


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

disk raid  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.

Dell's High-End Rackmount Servers - Challenging Compaq's Wintel Dominance


Dell Computer Corporation has shaken up the PC Server market, in three years moving from the #5 US market share position to a solid #2 (and #3 worldwide) - and has set its sights on #1 Compaq. This note assesses its strengths and weaknesses in the ever-growing and increasingly important rackmount server marketplace.

disk raid  number of peripherals (usually disk drive subsystems). These servers compete primarily in the enterprise computing market space. Dell's (~15% WW market share, Q2) largest competitors are Compaq (~33%) , HP(~12%), and IBM (~16%) [Source:IDC]. 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 estimate that rackmount servers will account for 60% of the general server market within 1-2 years (vs. 30-40% Read More

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.

disk raid  environmental monitoring, and enterprise-class disk drives with RAID protection. Furthermore, advanced availability features including storage controller and I/O path failover are required to guarantee data access even in the case of component failure. Consideration should also be taken to evaluate the data protection software features enabled within the storage system. Storage consolidation within a SAN enables the consistent application of data protection and disaster recovery, assuming the basic Read More

Compaq's 8-CPU Intel Servers: the New "Big Iron"


Compaq started shipping its eight-CPU Intel servers, the ProLiant 8000 and 8500, in late August. These are the first true eight-way Intel servers to ship.

disk raid  house up to 21 disk drives, allowing lots of raw storage space, but also providing the flexibility for a large RAID setup. Price/Performance: Based on present $/tpmC results from the TPC, Compaq continues to be a price/performance leader ($18.70/tpmC). We expect this leadership to continue, with the only serious competition expected to be from Dell. The raw performance numbers are also very good (>40,000 tpmC), but we expect Dell to post similar numbers within three months (60% probability). 8500: Read More

Peace of Mind through Surveillance: Affordable Solutions for Homes and SMBs


Today’s fast-paced lifestyle means many people spend a considerable amount of time in a mobile state, going between home, office, and meetings. With increasing pressure on time and mobility, the ability to secure important assets, both digitally and physically, has become critical. But there is an easy and affordable solution—learn how a surveillance system can be put into place using network attached storage.

disk raid  Basic, JBOD, RAID-0/1/5/5+HotSpare/6. Synology Disk Stations also allow the RAID to grow over time as needs change. As additional cameras are added or cameras with greater resolution are deployed, administrators can expand the hard drive capacity without interrupting Surveillance Station service. Recording events as a method of security only provides peace of mind if the events can be viewed at a later date, and RAID configurations ensure recorded data remains relevant and useful. Remote Recording If Read More

How to Find the Right Virtualization Solution for You


Is scrambling to consolidate and virtualize your information systems department frazzling you and your hardware? Are management and infrastructure costs not as low as you’d like them to be? Separate your business applications from your physical server hardware—and make your virtual infrastructure more dynamic and flexible, while reducing costs. The trick is doing it without losing space or key data. Find out how.

disk raid  of a single failed disk drive. RAID 6 extends the data protection of RAID 5 by writing a second set of parity data. RAID 6 provides high storage utilization, because it requires only a single drive beyond RAID 5 (N+2). RAID 6 provides enhanced data protection and the cost savings of requiring only one additional drive, but there is a tradeoff in performance. RAID 6 requires double the number of parity calculations and additional writes associated with RAID 5. Because of the negative performance impact of 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.

What's Wrong With Application Software? Businesses Really Are Unique - One Size Can Never Fit All


Does your company do things exactly like your competitor? Does your company do things like another company who is a totally different business? For some applications, the answer is YES, but for most they answer is either, NOT VERY or NO WAY. Then can we expect any single application product to be the best for all companies?

disk raid  resources consumed (e.g., RAM, disk space or performance) and complexity of use. Many of the added functions apply to only a few of the various industries addressed meaning that all other industries must suffer the consequences of these non-essential functions. Even if two or more industries need the same function, they often have minor differences or need to interrelate to different industry specific functions.

Dell Drops WebPC


Dell Computer Corporation has decided to drop its 'WebPC' appliances, with somewhat less fanfare than was created for its November, 1999, announcement.

disk raid  for an appliance with disk, and $200-$300 for a diskless appliance. (Prices vary depending on how much processor, RAM, etc.) Dell's leaving will have two contradictory effects on the Internet appliance market. The effect on consumers is, paradoxically, no effect - there are enough suppliers out there now that customers will be able to find an appliance if they really need/want one. Although Dell is certainly a popular brand, it's not clear that brand loyalty carries over to the relatively new appliance Read More

Dell's 8-CPU Intel Servers Increasing Its Enterprise Focus


Dell began shipping its eight-CPU Intel server, the PowerEdge 8450, in late September. This comes on the heels of Compaq's shipment of its ProLiant 8000 and 8500.

disk raid  needs other hardware (primarily disk drives) to support its configuration. This product is aimed at the large datacenter/data warehouse environments, as well as other large-scale computing environments. The 8450 will also be used to consolidate and upgrade existing servers. Dell's main competitors in this space are Compaq, HP, and IBM. There are other vendors producing eight-way Intel servers (e.g. Unisys, Hitachi), but we do not believe they will be serious market share competitors. (Market share figures Read More

IBM’s “Shark” Eaten by EMC’s “BASS”


EMC announced its latest high-end Symmetrix models, capable of scaling up to 19.2 terabytes of disk space. Perhaps they should name it the BASS (Big-Advanced Storage System, for the more refined among you), since they’re trying to sink IBM’s “Shark”.

disk raid  hold up to 384 disks. In addition to the 8730, EMC announced the five-terabyte 8430. In addition to the big boost in capacity (more than double that of the Symmetrix 5000), EMC has doubled the internal bandwidth (a/k/s bus speed ), from 700 MS/sec to a whopping 1.4 GB/sec, far surpassing IBM's 800 MB/sec. EMC's most serious competition currently comes from IBM, but Jim Rothnie, EMC's senior vice president of product management, has stated That will be the closest time when our competitor will catch up Read More

Standard Benchmark on Hewlett-Packard ProLiant Servers


In August 2006, Microsoft conducted a Microsoft Dynamics AX 4.0 standard distribution benchmark to measure the performance and scalability characteristics of the application in a simulated distribution scenario. This benchmark exercised core accounts receivables scenarios around order entry through invoicing, in addition to procure-to-pay processes around purchase order creation through receiving of goods.
