How Dedicated Storage Networks Keep Pace with Machine Data Growth

Posted by Neil Glazebrook on 10/3/16 11:00 AM

I first heard the phrase “you can’t manage what you don’t measure” in the early ‘90s, when I joined the data networking industry. The phrase was used to help justify the need for our recently launched ethernet network management solution.

Win the Argument for Cloud-Driven Transformation

Posted by Courtney Pallotta on 8/8/16 10:00 AM

 

It’s not that you don’t want to move to the cloud. As a master of enterprise storage, you understand the benefits of moving all of your data—including primary—to the cloud, as well as the challenges that need to be overcome. As discussed in a recent SearchStorage article by Mike Matchett, senior analyst and consultant at Taneja Group, leveraging the cloud for more than just cold storage will ultimately have a transformational impact on a business.

The Evolution of Edge Computing

Posted by Laz Vekiarides on 7/21/16 1:00 PM

We have been talking about the notion of edge services, or more recently, edge computing, for quite some time. When Ellen and I were conceptualizing what the next generation of infrastructure might look like, we kept revisiting network concepts – users are on one end of a powerful network, and compute and data can flow seamlessly from the cloud to locations proximal to users.

Why the Industry Needs a New Storage Approach for Machine Data

Posted by Ellen Rubin on 7/8/16 11:00 AM

When we started ClearSky a couple of years ago, it seemed to the early team that we were focused on a particular set of challenges created by the growing adoption of cloud and hybrid cloud architectures: what to do about primary storage? We built a storage network that combines high performance and low latency with the ease of use, agility and scale of the cloud. In the early beta days, we focused on workloads that customers would trust us with: VMware, SQL and other back-office apps that were appropriately low-risk for a pre-GA service.

Your New Secret Weapon: High-Performance Storage for Splunk

Posted by Courtney Pallotta on 6/27/16 10:00 AM

If your company was a superhero, data analytics would be its utility belt – and Splunk would be its secret weapon. Enterprises are constantly generating data by the terabyte, and while its original value appealed primarily to marketers and advertisers, that data can be a gold mine for CIOs and IT professionals.

Splunk Users: Can your Storage Keep up?

Posted by Courtney Pallotta on 6/21/16 9:00 AM

There’s no way around it – traditional enterprise storage wasn’t built to handle the rapid growth and high performance requirements many applications demand. To support an application like Splunk, storage needs to be secure, elastic, low-latency and economically valuable. Cloud storage options aim for each these goals, but tend to fall flat if they try to hit every mark on the list. Traditional storage infrastructure, on the other hand, requires management and regular expansion that’s complex and very expensive.
