Data Mobility – Global/Scale-out Data Platforms

Chris Evans published another post in his ongoing series about data mobility in hybrid cloud. In this post, he looks at Global NAS and other distributed storage solutions, and includes a consideration of how to deal with data consistency. Solutions from NooBaa, Qumulo, Weka, Elastifile, Hedvig and Datera are included in this overview.


Kaminario Goes Software-Defined

Kaminario, a presenter at the first Storage Field Day in 2012, recently announced they were getting out of providing hardware for their AFA solution. Instead they will provide the software to run on top of certified storage from Tech Data. Chris Evans looks at the implications for the greater trend of the software-defined data center. He particularly focuses comments from Kaminario’s CEO on trying to undercut AWS storage on pricing per gigabyte.


Data Mobility – Caching Technologies

As part of his series looking at data mobility for the hybrid cloud, Chris Evans digs into the four main options for hybrid cloud caching. He reviews NAS, VM, database, and storage gateway caching, looking at the challenges involved for each.


Cloudian Announces HyperFile, Makes Object Better

If you’re interested in 840TB of object storage in 4RU with strict S3 compliance, than Cloudian’s new HyperStore 4000 appliance might be for you. Dan Frith got a look at it at Storage Field Day last month. He found the addition of “converged access” makes it interesting for anyone that needs support for file and object storage in the data center.


Cloudian Announces HyperStore 4000 – Gets Super Dense

Dan Frith offers his take on Cloudian’s HyperStore 4000. Dan sees it as an interesting product in object storage. Instead of focusing on being “cheap and deep”, Cloudian focused on making this a smarter kind of storage. This allows governments and business to have a greater ability to verify data locality and visibility. For organizations with very sensitive restrictions on locality, HyperStore 4000 seems designed with you in mind.
