This IDC Buyer Case Study summarizes how a $1.4 billion manufacturer of faucets and other fixtures has integrated flash storage technology into its datacenter environment to improve performance, handle rapid business growth, and improve internal productivity.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is composed of sensor-embedded devices and machines
that exchange data with each other and the cloud through a secure network.
Often referred to as “things” or “edge devices”, these intelligent machines
connect to the internet either directly or through an IoT gateway,
enabling them to send data to the cloud. Analyzing this data can reveal
valuable insights about these objects and the business processes
they’re part of, helping enterprises optimize their operations.
Devices in IoT deployments can span nearly any industry or use case.
Each one is equipped with sensors, processing power, connectivity,
and software, enabling asset control and other remote interactions
over the internet. Unlike traditional IT assets, these edge devices are
resource-constrained (either by bandwidth, storage, or processing
power) and are typically found outside of a data center, creating unique
security and management considerations.
Server virtualization has transformed corporate IT -- companies have enjoyed major cost savings and have gained flexibility and efficiency. But this has also led to a proliferation of virtual machines and servers that threaten to overwhelm data movement and storage technologies. In this IDG Tech Dossier, learn how utility storage makes for massive consolidation, flexibility and scalability, so IT departments can reduce storage infrastructure and lower costs while improving their ability to respond to fast-changing needs of business units.
Read this IDC white paper to understand the various approaches to solving today's backup and recovery challenges leveraging deduplication. The paper discusses how to dramatically improve IT economics by optimizing network bandwidth, backup windows, and storage footprint requirements in distributed and datacenter locations alike.
This ESG paper outlines the considerations for architecting an efficient SAN data storage infrastructure with a focus on the NetApp solutions for increased utilization, improved performance and streamlined protection to reduce operational costs.
This report looks at ways NetApp IT was able to put into practices what the company has been saying to its customers for some time: That the use of NetApp storage offers such efficiency that it can save companies significantly more money and management time than the use of an alternate storage system.
This Enterprise Strategy Group paper examines the specific demands facing any midrange storage system offering with a focus on HP 3PAR StoreServ 7000's ability to deliver.

In this paper, we highlight the features necessary to move beyond server virtualization by leveraging key integration capabilities between IT components, with a particular focus on the role that storage plays in the evolution of the data center.
Seksui Diagnostics servers diagnostic manufacturers and clinical laboratories worldwide with a unique product portfolio comprised of diagnostic intermediaries or critical raw materials, finished reagent kits for use on clinical chemistry analyzers, and point of care rapid tests. With the demand for accurately scaling infrastructure requirements, they turned to EMC.
In this whitepaper, learn the challenges needed to rapidly build a new data center from scratch and how EMC software can help create a new data center build-out in 3 months.
This report covers the challenges of first generation deduplication technology and the advantages of next-gen deduplication products. Next generation Dedupe 2.0 systems use a common deduplication algorithm across all storage systems-whether they're smaller systems in branch offices or large data center storage facilities. That means no more reconstituting data as it traverses different storage systems, which saves bandwidth and improves performance.
Scale-out and responsive storage capabilities are “must have” features. Silverton Consulting evaluated and benchmarked all the leading vendors. Download this paper to see why they were impressed with NetApp Clustered SAN.
Flash Storage For Dummies explores the many uses and benefits of flash storage technology in the enterprise. From server cache and back-end storage cache to hybrid and all flash arrays, flash technology improves performance and increases reliability in storage infrastructures. It also reduces energy and real-estate costs in the data center.
As data consumption continues to grow and the expansion of the Internet of Things drives increased demand for data center storage, providers are facing a unique challenge. How can a facility meet the needs of customers today while keeping pace with how those needs will grow in the future?
This whitepaper will discuss how the incremental growth philosophy is changing data center design.

In this ESG white paper, the capabilities and common characteristics of flash implementations are categorized as “bronze”-, “silver”-, and “gold”-type approaches, depending on the degree to which they enable fully featured storage systems. It evaluates how HP’s storage delivers the basics and follows with a series of flash-specific optimizations and advances that we’ll call “gold standard” flash capabilities, after which it hints at HP’s vision of the future for their flash storage architecture. Throughout the paper, the importance of both IT architecture and business implications is emphasized.
HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage arrays are rapidly being adopted into many IT data centers. With the adoption of the array comes the need to support a non-disruptive method (supported by OS) to import data from aging architectures to new HP 3PAR StoreServ arrays. There is an increasing demand to support the migration from non-HP standard storage arrays to HP 3PAR StoreServ arrays as part of the migrations. In the past, HP has supported migrations from HP 3PAR to HP 3PAR using HP 3PAR Peer Motion technology and EVA to HP 3PAR using HP 3PAR Online Import as part of the federated storage movement. HP is now announcing the ability to migrate data from EMC arrays to HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage.
In business timing is everything, especially for business-critical applications. Delays in delivering critical data and processing can significantly increase business and financial risks. IBM’s new eBook FlashAhead discusses these challenges and offers up the all-flash storage system as a solution.
"Cloud computing, also known as 'IT as a Service', is predicated on delivering IT services on demand, an idea that has support from business leaders as a way to better align IT with business operations. Cloud computing has two key requirements: virtualized applications and seamless support and integration between the server, networking, storage and hypervisor components.
In this paper, we explore these concepts and highlight the critical features necessary to move beyond server virtualization by leveraging key integration capabilities between IT components-with a particular focus on the important role that storage plays in the evolution of the datacenter architecture."
