Solving the BIG problems in cloud computing
The two big challenges in deploying and growing cloud usage are cost and security. Shadow IT has contributed to those challenges by causing overspending and exposing organizations to significant security risks. So, how should enterprises address both hybrid (on-premises and in the cloud) and multi-cloud challenges? This research reviews new technologies and approaches that can improve visibility for IT teams, enable security policies across the entire network, and manage costs more effectively.

Vladimir Galabov, Director, Cloud and Data Center Research, and Rik Turner, Principal Analyst, Emerging Technologies, are the co-authors of this eBook from Omdia, a data, research, and consulting business that offers expert analysis and strategic insight to empower decision-making surrounding new technologies.

This eBook covers the following topics:

  • the current landscape of cloud computing, including the BIG problems
  • the advantages of using a multi-cloud approach
  • the dangers of shadow IT, including billing surprises and security breaches
  • the move of mission-critical applications to the cloud
  • the considerations regarding cloud security, including recommendations for IT teams

Build a Better vSAN
This white paper explores the development of a next-generation virtualized storage area network (vSAN) that provides high performance, data integrity, and cost-efficiency. Addressing the limitations of traditional VMware vSAN, it emphasizes the need for a solution that integrates seamlessly into a hypervisor, supports deduplication at the core, and offers robust data resiliency, including maintaining access during multiple hardware failures.
Building a superior Virtual Storage Area Network (vSAN) involves addressing traditional solutions' performance, resilience, and cost shortcomings. The next-generation vSAN, like VergeIO's VergeOS, integrates storage and hypervisor functionalities into a single efficient code base, matching the capabilities of dedicated storage arrays while maintaining the cost advantage of vSANs.

Key improvements include:
  • Hypervisor Integration: Seamless integration for better performance and scalability.
  • Cost Efficiency:  Eliminates expensive server hardware and storage controllers.
  • Built-in Deduplication: Core-level deduplication for minimal performance impact, maximum efficiency, and significant cost savings.
  • Intelligent Hardware Failure Protection: Enhanced resilience with data copies across multiple nodes and drives.
  • Advanced Snapshot Capabilities: Unlimited, efficient and independent snapshots.
The white paper "Build a Better vSAN" offers an in-depth analysis of these advancements, providing insights on improving vSAN performance, ensuring data integrity, and reducing storage costs. This approach sets a new standard in virtualized storage solutions, offering the reliability of dedicated storage arrays at vSAN prices.
