HP Offers Enterprise-Class Deduplication

HP expands the Information Optimisation portfolio and announces the B6200 StoreOnce Backup System-- the first enterprise-class deduplication appliance from the company. 

The system can store up to 768TB in a single chassis, with backup or restore data speeds of up to 28TB per hour. It scales from 48TB (one node with no expansion unit) to 768TB (fully loaded 4-node configuration), with a deduplication ratio of around 20:1. 

HP says the B6200 enables deduplication across an entire business-- from remote sites to core data centre-- with management via Read more...

Forrester: Skip Data Tiering, Go SSD

Forrester Research advices companies to skip tiered storage architectures in favour of moving to an all-SSD architecture, even if figuring out how to use such a system might be a "challenge."

Enterprise-class SSDs still remain more expensive than HDDs on a per-gigabyte basis-- up to 10x more so-- but deduplication architectures can reduce capacity requirements, making flash a cost-effective, better-performing alternative, Forrester says. 

SSDs are not only faster, but also consume less power and have no moving parts, thus eliminating seek times and Read more...

NextGen Announces n5 Storage System

NextGen Storage reveals the n5 storage system-- a virtual machine storage system using SSDs and HDDs with the addition of granular quality of service (QoS) levels to "provision performance" across tiers. 

The company claims the system makes storage setup easier, particularly for virtualised servers running business- and mission-critical applications, using PCI3 solid state and patent-pending performance QoS, Dynamic Data Placement and Phased Data Reduction technologies. 

The performance QoS allows the performance provisioning, while Dynamic Data Read more...

Nexsan Releases New E5000 Family Member

Storage systems provider Nexsan launches the E5510-- offering over 1PB of capacity in 27U of rack space with optional support for both asynchronous and synchronous data replication. 

The asynchronous replication feature allows the separate configuration of off-site data replication for each storage pool on the primary E500 system, as well as the manual data transfer from the E5000 to an external storage device for offline replication. 

Meanwhile synchronous replication allows the mirroring all data in a storage pool between a source and a target Read more...

Permanent Storage via Glass?

Permanent Storage via Glass?

Syylex claims it has the technology and storage medium allowing the archival of digital data for centuries-- the GlasMasterDisc, a system storing data on glass discs. 

The discs consist of 2 halves-- an engraved durable glass substrate (made from glass the chemical industry uses to store aggressive reagents) and a metallic alloy reflective layer. The 2 halves are bonded together, and metal and bond are in turn nearly entirely enclosed in glass. 

The company says the glass disc is "extremely resistant to all environment factors"-- including humidity, Read more...
