Making a Business Case for Unified IT Monitoring
Unified monitoring solutions like Zenoss offer a cost-effective alternative for those seeking to rein-in monitoring inefficiencies. By establishing a central nerve center to collect data from multiple tools and managed resources, IT groups can gain visibility into the end-to-end availability and performance of their infrastructure. This helps simplify operational processes and reduce the risk of service disruption for the enterprise.

In large IT organizations, monitoring tool sprawl has become so commonplace that it is not unusual for administrators to be monitoring 10 to 50 solutions across various departments.

Unified monitoring solutions like Zenoss offer a cost-effective alternative for those seeking to rein-in monitoring inefficiencies. By establishing a central nerve center to collect data from multiple tools and managed resources, IT groups can gain visibility into the end-to-end availability and performance of their infrastructure. This helps simplify operational processes and reduce the risk of service disruption for the enterprise.

This paper can help you make an effective business case for moving to a unified monitoring solution. Key considerations include:

•    The direct costs associated with moving to a unified monitoring tool
•    The savings potential of improved IT operations through productivity and efficiency
•    The business impact of monitoring tools in preventing and reducing both downtime and service degradation

Does Backup Need a File System of its Own?
VembuHIVETM is an efficient cloud file system designed for large-scale backup and disaster recovery (BDRTM) application with support for advanced use-cases. VembuHIVETM can be thought of as a File System of File Systems with in-built version control, deduplication (elimination of redundant information to enhance storage reduction), encryption, and in-built error correction.

Backup is just not about storage. It’s the intelligence on top of storage. Typically when businesses think of backup, they see it as a simple data copy from one location to another. Traditional file systems would suffice if the need were to just copy the data. But backup is the intelligence applied on top of storage where data can be put to actual use. Imagine the ability to use backup data for staging, testing, development and preproduction deployment. Traditional file systems are not designed to meet such complex requirements.

With the advent of information technology, more and more organizations are relying on IT for running their businesses. They cannot afford to have downtime on their critical applications and need instant access to data in the event of disaster. Hence, a new type of file system is necessary to satisfy this need. 

VembuHIVETM manages the metadata smartly through its patent-pending technology, in a way that is agnostic to the file system of the backup, which is why we call VembuHIVETM, a file system of file systems. This helps the backup application to instantly associate the data in VembuHIVETM to any file system metadata, thereby allowing on-demand file or image restores in many possible file formats. The data and metadata storage, harness cluster file system and computing and storage.

This is a really powerful concept that will address some very interesting use cases not just in the backup and recovery domain but also in other domains, such as big-data analytics.

The key to the design of VembuHIVETM is its novel mechanism to capture and generate appropriate metadata and store it intelligently in a cloud infrastructure. The increment data (the changes with respect to a previous version of the same backup) are treated like versions in a version control system (CVS, GIT). This revolutionary way of data capture and metadata generation provides seamless support to a wide range of complex restore use cases.

Infinio Accelerator Product Overview White Paper
This whitepaper is an overview of Infinio Accelerator, a software-based server-side cache that provides high performance to any storage system in a VMware environment.
Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE This is an in-depth overview of Infinio Accelerator, a software-based server-side cache that provides high performance to any storage system in a VMware environment. It increases IOPS and decreases latency by caching a copy of the hottest data on server-side resources such as RAM and flash devices. Native inline deduplication ensures that all local storage resources are used as efficiently as possible, reducing the cost of performance. Results can be seen instantly following the non-disruptive, 15-minute installation that doesn’t require any downtime, data migration, or reboots.

How to Build A Cloud Migration That’s Right for Your Business
How to build a cloud migration plan that’s right for your business.

Either your company is in the process of moving to the cloud or will be in short order. This truth can be an opportunity to unlock all those dreamed-about cloud benefits, or it can lead you into the cloud-washing trap so many companies get stuck in. The difference is simple—the right cloud migration plan. It can take many different shapes, but, just like the best companies, the right plan is always unique and always personal.

Disaster Recovery Guide: DR in Virtualized Environments
In this guide you will learn about BC/DR planning with Zerto's Disaster Recovery Solutions for Virtualized Environments.
In today’s always-on, information-driven organizations, business continuity depends completely on IT infrastructures that are up and running 24/7. The costs of downtime are huge and data loss can put a company out of business. Data loss is not only caused by natural disasters, power outages, hardware failure and user errors, but more and more by software problems and cyber security related disasters. Therefore thorough security and business continuity strategies are crucial for modern businesses, minimizing data loss and downtime. Especially now, as data centers become more and more software defined, these private, hybrid and public clouds become more vulnerable to these kinds of threats.

SvSAN is a software-defined storage solution designed to run on two or more servers. It is uniquely architected with the combination of a light footprint, availability out-of-the-box, uncompromising performance and centralized management deployment across a remote and branch office environment. This white paper discusses the latest product release of StorMagic SvSAN and the common IT challenges that can be resolved by deploying StorMagic SvSAN in your organization.

SvSAN is a software-defined storage solution designed to run on two or more servers. It is uniquely architected with the combination of a light footprint, availability out-of-the-box, uncompromising performance and centralized management deployment across a remote and branch office environment.

SvSAN eliminates the need for a physical SAN which are costly, complex and present a single point of failure. With high availability, out-of-the-box business critical applications and IT services suffer no downtime and the removal of a SAN along with the low cost of commodity servers and storage lowers IT acquisition and operating cost. Thousands of large organizations and SMEs across 72 countries have already chosen SvSAN to modernize their IT infrastructure.
