In this video, we discuss Qumulo and then show a live demo of how easy it is to set up a high-performance files system in AWS or GCP
In this webinar, we present Infortrent’s GSe series of data storage products.
In this video Global Distribution with Qumulo present an overview of the Qumulo file System and Storage solution.
In recent years, the industry has seen an explosion of software-defined solutions, not only for storage, but for networking and even the entire data center. Software-defined data management and storage solutions such as Caringo Swarm allow you to deploy in any hardware platform that meets certain requirements or specifications. Recently, I’ve been working on Caringo’s Hardware Compatibility Certification for Western Digital’s Ultrastar Serv60+8 Hybrid Storage line of servers. Thanks to its disk density, build quality and compute power, it is an exceptionally capable platform for managing unstructured data at massive scale.
This week, Caringo announced the collaboration with Western Digital to provide a joint solution that enables organizations to manage unstructured data at massive scale like never before—they can now store up to a petabyte (PB) of data in just 4U with 18-TB drives. There are many benefits to this solution, including reduced costs and simplified data management. The solution is particularly valuable for supporting remote access requirements for collaboration, as well as for data mining and monetization of existing assets.
In this IABM TV interview, Tony Barbagallo (CEO, Caringo) discusses Object Storage, the users of Caringo’s products and some of their M&E use cases.
As a society, we rely more and more on cloud storage as time goes on. The year 2020 has truly opened our eyes, Bird Box style, to the full potential of the cloud and its importance in the world of technology. Without it, working remotely would be an altogether different type of challenge then it currently is today. When the cloud was developed and eventually promoted to the public in 2006, it wasn’t completely taken seriously. When you thought of the cloud, it was considered an unsafe method of storage and practically useless to the average individual.
An everything-online approach challenges the traditional paradigms for storage, with new requirements for intelligent data management and access.
As work and workflows become distributed, the way organizations evaluate tier 2 storage is shifting. What we have all learned recently is the importance of making sure everything you create is online, searchable and accessible. I call this the ‘everything-online’ approach. This approach is challenging the standard “speeds-and-feeds” and “cheap-and-deep” paradigms for storage, and is introducing new requirements for intelligent data management and access. Let’s take a deeper dive into what that means and how this impacts your ability to keep everything online.
Make sure these 5 questions are on your list to ask when buying object storage; the uncommon questions can make a big difference longterm
My son left for college yesterday. To say it’s been a winding path to get here is an understatement. Our search took us all over the country as he tried to find the right fit for him. Adding in the impact of Covid-19, one can appreciate how difficult making a major life decision can be without all the information. Luckily, with the power of the internet, he was able to obtain information that he never got to ask in person. But as we packed up his belongings to move with him to his new dorm, a whole slew of questions that we didn’t think to ask while making his decision came up.
We feel good about the easy things to understand (what are the dorms like, where are the dining commons, is the department for his area of study reputable), but we wish we had known to ask for more information. For example, how much storage space is there in the dorm room, are there late-night food options on campus, and how can he engage the alumni network to help with internships/summer jobs? While these may not seem like big items, they will directly impact his life.
Evaluating your existing DR strategy or developing a new one? Learn how to efficiently add cloud storage for a hybrid cloud approach.
No single storage repository can guarantee that your data will never be lost, much less that it can be recovered once it is lost. Are you taking a holistic approach to your Disaster Recovery (aka DR) strategy to ensure you never lose access to your precious data and digital assets?
Metadata in short is “data about the data.” It is just as important as the data itself. In context, a video file may include metadata describing the length of time, GPS coordinates.
The terms “metadata” and “metadata search” get thrown around often in the data storage industry. What does the word metadata mean, how does metadata work and why is it important? And, just as important, why is metadata suddenly a hot topic in 2020?
