Virtualization for storage and compute is driving business efficiencies and simplifying IT environments. Yet these solutions rely on physical network and security platforms with dedicated hardware that require slow, manual provisioning services to update and maintain. This limits the opportunities provided by virtualization, reduces productivity, and prevents businesses from streamlining application and data management to meet demand.
With so many platforms on the market, what makes a platform right for your organization? There is no easy answer. Beyond interactive features companies need to also evaluate where the data is stored, who maintains the systems, how it will be accessed, the device matrix, security, scale, vendor financial viability, and many other factors. Organizations should also look into what it would require to roll off any given platform should it not meet future needs.
VMware Virtual SAN is a new, software-defined storage tier advancing the future of virtualized storage. Designed for VMware vSphere environments but hardware-agnostic, it is the first policy-based storage solution that streamlines storage provisioning. This results in a drastic reduction in manual tasks, leading to automation and simplification that improves productivity and leverages budgets.

We’ve written in this blog about how Oracle’s Database can change your organization and about IBM Flash and its advantages here and here. It’s about time we brought this topic full circle and discussed how IBM Flash can enhance Oracle Database Performance. It focuses on performance and real-time compression advantages.
The platform’s integrated structure streamlines IT environments. All hardware, including servers, storage, networking, and management are consolidated into a single chassis – which has a 48TB storage capacity for future growth. The chassis is available standalone (small enough to fit under a counter) or rackable. It plugs into a standard wall outlet, making installation easy and eradicating the need to allocate space and resources for sprawling hardware.Comments (1)
Oracle sets new precedents in what is expected of data storage appliance through the appliances, ease of deployment, performance, functionality, quality, and pricing. Oracle’s ZFS Storage Appliance Solutions cut back-up recovery times in almost half, adhere and even improve on strict data protection requirements, and are priced almost four times lower than a similar functioning storage solution from competitors.

As data collection has grown exponentially over the past five years, so has the focus on Big Data. Structured data, the primary type of Big Data, consists of dates, numbers, and groups of words and numbers that are organized most often in a database. These strings of data are machine- or human-generated, and are being produced rapidly with advancements in technology.
Converged infrastructure is swiftly becoming the preferred way that enterprises of all sizes and industries are designing their IT environments. According to IDC, converged infrastructure spending will reach an impressive $17.8 billion globally in 2016, up from only $4.6 billion in 2012.Comments (2)
