These drives encrypt data at tape speed, avoiding the need for hostbased encryption that eats host CPU cycles. Sun offers the StorageTek Crypto-Ready T10000 tape drive, which supports a variety of operating systems, including z/OS, Solaris and Windows. The enterprise products don't come cheap. The Sun product costs $37,000, plus a $5,000 charge to turn on the encryption feature. The IBM product Read More

Storage Efficiency in a Virtual Environment


One of the critical components of any infrastructure is the storage layer. But companies often buy equipment without scoping their requirements. And, within a virtual environment, ongoing maintenance and monitoring of storage tiers is more often overlooked than in a non-virtualized environment. Learn more about storage tiers, as well as considerations and techniques related to storage in a virtualized environment.

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.
