NoSQL databases are now commonly used to provide a scalable system to store, retrieve and analyze large amounts of data. Most NoSQL databases are designed to automatically partition data and workloads across multiple servers to enable easier, more cost-effective expansion of data stores than the single server/scale up approach of traditional relational databases. Public cloud infrastructure should provide an effective host platform for NoSQL databases given its horizontal scalability, on-demand capacity, configuration flexibility and metered billing; however, the performance of virtualized public cloud services can suffer relative to bare-metal offerings in I/O intensive use cases. Benchmark tests comparing latency and throughput of operating a high-performance in-memory (flash-optimized), key value store NoSQL database on popular virtualized public cloud services and an automated bare-metal platform show performance advantages of bare-metal over virtualized public cloud, further quant
Today’s consumers expect instant access to communications services whether they’re in the office, at home, or on the road. With data speeds increasing and international roaming costs decreasing, data usage is rapidly growing. Telecommunications Service Providers (TSPs) are under pressure to deliver more services to more people and approach 100% uptime all while lowering prices to consumers.
Traditional relational databases can’t meet the requirements for massive scalability, availability, and fault tolerance that the rapid growth in data usage and rise of big data demands. Read this solution brief to learn how Riak excels at these. Riak is a distributed NoSQL database optimized for big data. Riak meets many of the challenges you may be facing with your own service operations systems.

This research paper from Saugatuck Technology discusses the multi-sourced hybrid IT environment, including how to recognize the needs that can increase costs and compromise operations, and how to optimize the environments for peak effectiveness.
Cloud adoption is an expanding part of IT organizations’ strategies, and IT architects are growing more sophisticated in how they think about cloud; however, as of early 2015, relatively few organizations have truly advanced levels of cloud maturity. In IDC’s recent worldwide CloudView Survey, we discovered that nearly 60% of organizations are currently using or planning to implement some form of cloud — whether for a single project or their portfolio, for test/development environments, or to run mission-critical applications 24 x 7 — but only 25% have reached the level that IDC would call “mature”— that is, building repeatable, managed, or optimized cloud strategies. There is significant room for improvement.
When designed well, a data lake is an effective data-driven design pattern for capturing a wide range of data types, both old and new, at large scale. By definition, a data lake is optimized for the quick ingestion of raw, detailed source data plus on-the-fly processing of such data for exploration, analytics and operations. Even so, traditional, latent data practices are possible, too.
Organizations are adopting the data lake design pattern (whether on Hadoop or a relational database) because lakes provision the kind of raw data that users need for data exploration and discovery-oriented forms of advanced analytics. A data lake can also be a consolidation point for both new and traditional data, thereby enabling analytics correlations across all data.
To help users prepare, this TDWI Best Practices Report defines data lake types, then discusses their emerging best practices, enabling technologies and real-world applications. The report’s survey quantifies user trends and readiness f
Backup and recovery is part of business and is essential to successful information management. Take fifteen minutes to find out how you can transform backup and recovery with disk-based, deduplication-optimized solutions from EMC.
This Enterprise Strategy Group paper introduces the common characteristics and abilities of flash implementations and categorizes different approaches. It also considers HP’s offerings from the perspective of a “flash-optimized” storage system while representing both IT and business implications.
IT organizations are challenged to do more with limited budgets and fewer IT resources. Meeting these pain points requires a paradigm shift towards optimized data protection. As a leader in storage, HP is working with Symantec to deliver innovative solutions to modernize data protection for Symantec NetBackup environments that enable complete protection.
To accomplish this mission, you need an infrastructure platform that can be highly optimized for today’s and tomorrow’s virtualized workloads to provide operational simplicity that allows you to move at the speed of business.
Unfortunately, a traditional infrastructure won’t get you there. A siloed environment requires too many tools and manual processes, which creates unnecessary complexity. That complexity, in turn, causes downtime, slows service delivery, and drains your IT staff productivity.
Now, more than ever, your IT managers are under enormous pressure to deliver applications and services that innovate and transform your business. You’re being asked to deliver a data center defined by lower costs, rapid time to value, and rock-solid reliability. To accomplish this mission, you need an infrastructure platform that can be highly optimized for today’s and tomorrow’s virtualized workloads to provide operational simplicity that allows you to move at the speed of business.
