  • Master the complexities of using cloud storage

    Companies of all sizes are investing in cloud technology, even if it's just using an outside provider for cloud backup. But what about using cloud storage as an archive or for primary data? Or a hybrid scenario where you meet your own, on-premises criteria for cloud storage and use a gateway to ship data associated with some applications to the cloud? Now you’re talking about major decisions surrounding service providers, appliances and security.

    The articles in this drill-down offer insight into the latest cloud technology, and tell you the key questions you need to ask your service provider, and your storage team, if you decide to buy or build cloud storage technology. Find out what our experts say are the most important things to know when drawing up your cloud roadmap, and which tools can be most helpful when it comes time to deploy cutting-edge cloud technology.

  • The two faces of file sync and share

    Bring your own device, file sync-and-share technology and an increasingly mobile workforce are changing the requirements for how workers want (and need) to access corporate data, and putting new pressures on storage administrators. IT is no longer in a command-and-control role where they can dictate the hardware and software that employees use. Workers wanting to get to their files anywhere, anytime and from a variety of endpoint devices have turned to consumer cloud-based file-sharing and collaboration services. These services can be simple to use, but they pose a new challenge for IT when it comes to deciding how to police, patrol, monitor and protect the information employees keep and share in these files. This handbook takes a closer look at the growing sync-and-share phenomenon and offers real-world advice from experts and peers on how to address accessibility and security issues.

      • Architecture essentials and options when implementing a private cloud

        Building a private cloud means trying to replicate the elasticity, scalability and on-demand accessibility that large public cloud providers can offer, but doing it on your own. In strategizing for private cloud implementations, data storage pros must understand the requirements and functions of a private cloud.

        This handbook offers a detailed plan for implementing a private cloud, drills into virtualization and object storage technology choices, and includes expert advice on how to design on-demand, internal cloud services and guarantee multi-tenancy, geographically aware systems. Read our expert content to help you decide whether a private cloud implementation makes sense for your organization, how to get started and why many industry analysts say private clouds can be a good fit for organizations of any size.
