EMC Best practices in data protection monitoring
By EMC Corporation | 8/9/2014

This ESG study focuses on why, when it comes to data protection, visibility is the most significant key to success, and how to achieve a truly unified view. · According to the 2013 IT Spending Intentions Survey, improving data backup and recovery was the #2 most important IT priority selected by respondents

· Without far reaching visibility, infrastructure is guaranteed to miss backing up some servers, while potentially duplicating protection of others

· The clarity gained by a unified view is necessary for proactively reporting protection to stakeholders and compliance to auditors

Flash implications in enterprise storage array designs
By EMC Corporation | 1/9/2014

This whitepaper examines some common practices in enterprise storage array design and discusses opportunities for improving enterprise storage strategy by thinking with random I/O rather than sequential. A good enterprise storage array attempts to sequentialise the workload seen by the hard drives, regardless of the native data pattern at the host level. A single Solid State Drive (SSD) is capable of random I/O that would require hundreds of hard drives to match. However, obtaining this performance from an SSD is challenging. A new class of enterprise data storage system doesn’t substitute flash, but engineers an entirely new array to unlock flash’s full performance potential and deliver array-based capabilities
