This fortnight's Might Have Missed includes Brien Posey discussing the key considerations for organizations looking to virtualize with virtual SAN or fibre channel, James Green on setting up and configuring vSphere Data Protection 6.1 and two articles on infrastructure design and planning considerations.
Where scalability and ease of deployment are key requirements of storage infrastructure for most distributed organizations, converged and hyper-converged infrastructure models are enjoying a lot of attention from technology evaluators. Research from the likes of ESG and TechTarget’s latest Storage Market Landscape StudyTM concur that adoption of these integrated computing platforms (ICP)
This Christmas and New Year edition of Might Have Missed includes Mike Matchett on hyper-convergence for ROBO organizations, the latest TechTarget study on hyper-convergence adoption, Chris M Evans on disaster recovery planning and the Datanauts discussing the usefulness of Powershell scripting and PowerCLI within vSphere environments.
The universal choice for scripting in a virtualized architecture, supported by Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware, Powershell is hugely important for the modern engineer. Here, Mark Christie discusses the addition of a Powershell toolkit in the latest edition of SvSAN (5.3).
When it comes to software-defined storage (SDS), small and midsized businesses (SMBs) are getting the short end of the stick, according to Hans O’Sullivan, CEO of storage virtualization software specialist StorMagic.
StorMagic, Inc. has signed Prianto UK and Prianto GmbH as authorised distributors in the UK, Germany, Switzerland and Austria.
In this Episode I’m with Hans O’Sullivan, StorMagic‘s CEO, and we talk about: – Hyperconverged infrastructures for the distributed enteprise – How HA is managed in small and remote sites – Manging multiple (up to thousands) sites – KVM support
StorMagic SvSAN was nominated as a Finalist in this years annual Storage Awards hosted London.
StorMagic‘s SvSAN is an ideal solution for distributed environments as it pushes storage resiliency to the network edge but without the high costs associated with many of today’s hardware products.
