RELDATA 9240i Gives Delta Dental More for Less

No one wants to pay more for less, yet that was exactly the situation that Delta Dental of Colorado was facing as it looked to upgrade its FC SAN to meet new application requirements. Further, new iSCSI SAN alternatives were not that much better as they had some of the same inflexibility and software licensing issues as the company's FC SAN. It was only when Delta Dental brought in the RELDATA 9240i that it found a solution that gave it more for less. The future for Fibre Channel (FC) SANs in mid-sized enterprises (MSEs) has never been particularly bright. FC's high upfront costs, an infrastructure that is unfamiliar to most and pricey storage software licensing practices have precluded the adoption of FC SANs in these size organizations. It is only because FC SANs were more mature and performed better than competing storage networking technologies that FC got any ... (more)

Behind the Scenes, SANta Claus Global Cloud Story

Cloud Expo New York There is a ton of discussion, stories, articles, videos, conferences and blogs about the benefits and value proposition of cloud computing. Not to mention, discussion or debates about what is or what is not a cloud or cloud product, service or architecture including some perspectives and polls from me. [Santa Photo Via ABC news] Now SANta does not really care about these and other similar debates I have learned. However he is concerned with who has been naughty and nice as well watching out for impersonators or members of his crew who misbehave. In the spirit of the holidays, how about a quick look at how SANta leverages cloud technologies to support his global operations. Many in IT think that SANta bases his operations out of the North Pole as it is convenient for him to cool all of his servers, storage, networks and telecom equipment (which ... (more)

CloudBerry Backup for Windows Home Server Supports Drive Extender

CloudBerry Demo at Cloud Expo Cloud Computing Expo - With the release of CloudBerry Backup for Windows Home Server 1.3.3 we introduce a support for Drive Extender. What is Drive Extender? According to Wikipedia Windows Home Server Drive Extender is a file-based replication system that provides three key capabilities: * Multi-disk redundancy so that if any given disk fails, data is not lost * Arbitrary storage expansion by supporting any type of hard disk drive * A single folder namespace (no drive letters) If you translate it to less technical terms it means that you can add disks to your home server and it will automatically spread your data across them.

Deliver Cloud Storage to Your Desktop

Cloud Hosting Journal on Ulitzer Cloud Storage Services were relatively unknown until Amazon mass produced the now well-known S3 (Simple Storage Service). S3 may not be the first cloud storage service but it is among the first for the public with billions of objects stored. Now we are seeing other cloud storage vendors coming out, such as Nirvanix, Windows Azure, EMC Atmos Online/AT&T, Parascale, Box.net and etc. Google has long been in the cloud services business with the GMail service, the Google Apps Engine, the Picasa photo service and etc, with Google storage backing them up. Desktop Access to the Cloud A common theme of cloud storage services is that they all provide some API (Application Programming Interface) over HTTP. If the Cloud Storage were to be as popular today as the FTP for the past decade, it needs to have a desktop client that delivers the remote ... (more)

2010 and 2011 Trends, Perspectives and Predictions: More of the same?
