How Data Temperature Drives Data Placement Decisions and What to Do About It
In this white paper, learn (1) how the relative proportion of hot, warm, and cooler data changes over time, (2) new machine learning (ML) techniques that sense the cooling temperature of data throughout its half-life, and (3) the role of artificial intelligence (AI) in migrating data to the most cost-effective tier.

The emphasis on fast flash technology concentrates much attention on hot, frequently accessed data. However, budget pressures preclude consuming such premium-priced capacity when the access frequency diminishes. Yet many organizations do just that, unable to migrate effectively to lower cost secondary storage on a regular basis.
In this white paper, explore:

•    How the relative proportion of hot, warm, and cooler data changes over time
•    New machine learning (ML) techniques that sense the cooling temperature of data throughout its half-life
•    The role of artificial intelligence (AI) in migrating data to the most cost-effective tier.

All-Flash Array Buying Considerations: The Long-Term Advantages of Software-Defined Storage
In this white paper, analysts from the Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) provide insights into (1) the modern data center challenge, (2) buying considerations before your next flash purchase, and (3) the value of storage infrastructure independence and how to obtain it with software-defined storage.
All-flash technology is the way of the future. Performance matters, and flash is fast—and it is getting even faster with the advent of NVMe and SCM technologies. IT organizations are going to continue to increase the amount of flash storage in their shops for this simple reason.

However, this also introduces more complexity into the modern data center. In the real world, blindly deploying all-flash everywhere is costly, and it doesn’t solve management/operational silo problems. In the Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) 2018 IT spending intentions survey, 68% of IT decision makers said that IT is more complex today than it was just two years ago. In this white paper, ESG discusses:

•    The modern data center challenge
•    Buying considerations before your next flash purchase
•    The value of storage infrastructure independence and how to obtain it with software-defined storage
