  • Whenever an IT administrator ranks his highest-level data center pain points, it's a safe bet that IT storage—and the bottlenecks that inhabit that space—will be high on the list. Some say that storage can be expensive, others find it hard to manage, and many report that most storage hardware needs to be replaced roughly every three years. As storage IT becomes more virtualized, automated and complex, IT administrators need to ask questions about which choices make sense today and how they should prepare for the options they'll face tomorrow. Among the data management questions that should be on every IT administrator's mind are those that focus on storage, scalability, speed, spending, software-as-a-service (SaaS) and more. In this slide show, developed and edited by eWEEK and putting to work industry information from Chief Technology Officer Laz Vekiarides of ClearSky Data, we offer nine important questions every IT manager or storage admin should ask his or her team at least once a year.

  • NexentaEdge is a high-performance manager of petabyte-scale repositories that runs on so-called "shared-nothing" clusters of commodity Linux servers.

  • As the amount of data that organizations across industries create continues to grow exponentially—and the importance of speed-of-access to big data insights is more critical than ever—challenges around the storage and management of data arise. With an increased emphasis on access and analysis of mass amounts of data comes the need to move, store and recover that information as quickly and efficiently as possible. Enter flash storage. By enabling quick access to big data insights, flash allows organizations to improve performance and overall profit. Flash's presence in the enterprise storage space has increased since 2014 and is expected to continue to do so through the remainder of 2015 and beyond. Among the leaders in flash storage arrays is IBM, which continues to enable organizations across a variety of industries—including retail, health, transportation, media and manufacturing—to accelerate performance and lower IT infrastructure cost and complexity. This eWEEK slide show presents six examples of how IBM is helping companies across industries improve their processes through flash storage technology.
