Gartner Report: Competitive Landscape for Hyperconverged Integrated Systems. Accelerate business outcomes and achieve growth with hyperconverged integrated systems (HCIS). Key findings: As the hyperconverged integrated system (HCIS) market has matured in the past two years, some smaller providers without sufficient bases, technical resources and cash to survive on their own have exited the market." • "HCIS-only providers that have a sustainable sales advantage based on effective communication of technical strengths that can deliver superior cost savings or performance advantages are most likely to remain viable as the market continues to grow." • "HCIS providers without compelling value propositions to differentiate their offerings against other HCIS solutions are unlikely to survive the increasing competitive pressure that is appearing in the market."
This Gartner Report on an effective hyperconvergence strategy includes their research findings and recommendations. It also includes a deep dive analysis of key determinants in a hyperconverged solution decision.
This Hyper Converged Infrastructure solution brief describes the key benefits of NetApp's next generation HCI solution including enterprise scale, efficient storage architecture, trustworthy data services, and IT operations transformation.
“Vestas is a global market leader in manufacturing and servicing wind turbines,” explains Sven Jesper Knudsen, Ph.D., senior data scientist. “Turbines provide a lot of data, and we analyze that data, adapt to changing needs, and work to create a best-in-class wind energy solution that provides the lowest cost of energy.
“To stay ahead, we have created huge stacks of technologies—massive amounts of data storage and technologies to transform data with analytics. That comes at a cost. It requires maintenance and highly skilled personnel, and we simply couldn’t keep up. The market had matured, and to stay ahead we needed a new platform.
“If we couldn’t deliver on time, we would let users and the whole business down, and start to lose a lot of money on service. For example, if we couldn’t deliver a risk report on time, decisions would be made without actually understanding the risk landscape.

As the sheer amount of information available for Business Intelligence (BI) applications has grown, and the sophistication of BI capabilities has accelerated, organizations are striving to improve time-to-information for business users.
Gone are the days when mobility involved simply choosing a standardized device. Today, Enterprise IT leaders have to think about not just devices, but apps, data, storage, management (of devices, apps, content, and telecom expenses), security, and support. If you don’t consider your overall business goals as you develop and refine your mobility strategy, you risk investing in mobile technology for mobility’s sake alone. Smart decisions make it easier to adapt over time while keeping a lid on costs. Skyrocketing mobility costs are a common fear for organizations, but careful planning will help keep your mobility spend safely earthbound.

EMC Isilon scale-out network-attached storage (NAS) is a simple and scalable platform to build a scale-out data lake and persist enterprise files of all sizes that scale from terabytes to petabytes in a single cluster. It enables you to consolidate storage silos, improve storage utilization, reduce costs, while providing you a future proofed platform to run today and tomorrow's workloads.
Amazon Redshift Spectrum—a single service that can be used in conjunction with other Amazon services and products, as well as external tools—is revolutionizing the way data is stored and queried, allowing for more complex analyses and better decision making.
Spectrum allows users to query very large datasets on S3 without having to load them into Amazon Redshift. This helps address the Scalability Dilemma—with Spectrum, data storage can keep growing on S3 and still be processed. By utilizing its own compute power and memory, Spectrum handles the hard work that would
normally be done by Amazon Redshift. With this service, users can now scale to accommodate larger amounts of data than the cluster would have been capable of processing with its own resources.
This e-book aims to provide you with expert tips on how to
use Amazon Redshift Spectrum to increase performance
and potentially reduce the cost of your queries.

Innovations in data storage technology come with surprising frequency as competitors constantly leapfrog each other. That’s both good and bad. Good because they promise to solve pressing performance, reliability and cost problems. Bad because they often render perfectly good equipment prematurely obsolete.

On average in 2018, organizations managed 9.7 PB of data. That is a growth of 569% when compared to 1.45 PB of data in 2016. With all of this data, it's important to consider how data temperature is driving data placement decisions — and ultimately, overall storage costs. Download this infographic and see how you can use data temperature to gauge it’s worth.
