8 Ways to Speed Up Your Organization's Data Storage Performance

By Chris Preimesberger  |  Posted 2016-07-08

In the spirit of the past week's Independence Day celebrations in the United States, eWEEK in this slide show offers some practical ways for IT managers and storage administrators to free themselves from the tyranny of slow-moving storage data movement. Let's face it: Information technology is nothing if not all about speed. Fast data access is critical for a competitive enterprise because productivity slows down markedly when applications—and people—have to wait for data. People do not like waiting for anything, especially customers of competitive businesses. In the past generation or so, IT architects have discovered that something as simple as placing the data source closer to the processing engine in the server can speed the transfer and flow of data in great measure. Things have not been as simple as that on the storage side, however; storage has always been like a funnel, with a large intake mouth and a small exit pipe. Fortunately, there are several solutions available for businesses looking to accelerate their data storage environment. This eWEEK slide show references industry-relevant information from our own reporting and from Sheldon D'Paiva, director of product and solutions marketing at PernixData.
