Primary Flash Market Evolving to Next-Generation Architectures

Thumb original idc for next gen arch en 2017

As the information technology (IT) industry enters the cloud era, where hybrid IT is the dominant deployment model in organizations of all sizes, the capabilities of primary all-flash arrays (AFAs) will need to evolve to handle cloud scale and agility. Datacenters of all types and sizes will be using AFAs as general-purpose storage platforms more and more and will be increasing the workload densities that these systems must support. A key challenge is that current-generation AFAs have fundamental bottlenecks that both limit their consolidation and cloud-scale capabilities and create architectural risk as future memory technologies emerge. A next generation of AFAs — what could be called cloud-era flash arrays — will be best positioned to meet these requirements cost-effectively, will employ flash- driven rather than flash-optimized architectures, and will have NVMe rather than SCSI technology at the heart of their designs. This Technology Spotlight examines the evolving primary flash array market with a particular emphasis on what next-generation flash-driven enterprise storage architectures will look like. It also looks at the role Pure Storage, with its FlashArray//X, plays in this strategically important market.

How to Talk to NetOps About Automation

The network team is made up of your colleagues, your co-workers, in some cases, your friends. They deserve to know the truth. And you’re just the person to bring them that truth. The truth about how automation is going to transform (in a good way!) much of what traditional NetOps does.

Decisions around developing, testing, deploying, operating, and maintaining enterprise applications are not being made in a silo. In days past, it may have been the case that network operations personnel were the ones who were in control, who were the last sto ...

Is it Time to Evolve your Relationship with native Cloud Security and Performance Services?

Everybody changes, and sometimes relationships have to change too.
We’re talking, of course, about your relationship with your cloud provider’s native application services for security and performance. Services which are, admittedly, perfectly fine—until you realize you need more.

What are the signs that you’ve outgrown those cloud-native security and performance services?
When should you consider more robust application services?
Is it time to evolve your relationship with your native cloud services for your apps?

Five Lessons Learned from the Pivot to a Distributed Workforce

Today, it is increasingly important to enable your employees to work remotely. Working remotely gives employees flexibility while making them even more productive, which in turn keeps them engaged and happy. Blurring the lines between working at home versus working in the office is a primary reason why user productivity has been steadily climbing in the recent past.

The importance of facilitating remote work is further amplified during pandemics, disasters, and other unforeseen events that force many organizations to give their employees the ...

A Buyer’s Guide to Optimizing Remote Employees’ Extended Network

The shelter-in-place mandates put in place earlier in 2020 sent most employees home, and for the next few months they strived to stay connected and productive, while IT teams scrambled to provide infrastructures to support them. Now many organizations have realized there are benefits to having a distributed workforce, and thus are focused on tackling some of the network-related challenges that have compromised employee experience.

Remote user access is one top-of-mind concern. When employees are remote, connecting to on-premises apps can be ...

How IT adapts in times of change:

When global events caused companies to make a rapid pivot to remote work, IT had no choice but to act fast. No matter where they were on the path to digital transformation, IT organizations across industries were responsible for onboarding a large number of employees onto new devices, managing a bigger population of distributed users, and keeping them all connected and secure.

For teams still using traditional PC lifecycle management methods on their Windows devices, these new demands quickly became a mas ...
