OTS' experiences with all-flash technology mirror what many customers have experienced over the past several years. Hesitatingly optimistic, OTS deployed its first AFA in a limited environment to prove the system out, and when it performed and/or exceeded the company's expectations, it quickly started moving more workloads to it over time.
Like OTS, many customers do not immediately retire their legacy storage, but in moving the more demanding workloads off of their existing environments, they provide better application performance both for those applications on the AFA and for those that stay on the legacy storage. And like OTS, the majority of AFA customers have in the past year in particular come to the conclusion that all-flash technology is the future of primary storage for performance, reliability, ease of management and expansion, and economic (as measured by total cost of ownership) reasons.
A must-read for IT professionals that provides a comprehensive analysis of the API management marketplace and evaluates 22 vendors across 15 essential criteria.
APIs are the de-facto standard for building and connecting modern applications. But securely delivering, managing and analyzing APIs, data and services, both inside and outside an organization, is complex. And it’s getting even more challenging as enterprise IT environments grow dependent on combinations of public, private and hybrid cloud infrastructures.
Choosing the right APIs can be critical to a platform’s success. Likewise, full lifecycle API management can be a key ingredient in running a successful API-based program. Tools like Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Full Life Cycle API Management help enterprises evaluate these platforms so they can find the right one to fit their strategy and planning.

An intelligent, searchable recording fabric with 100% accuracy sounds pretty useful. But can you calculate a solid ROI to justify it?
We all know intuitively that there are substantial bottomline benefits to reducing unplanned network downtime and improving the management of corporate risk. It follows that it also pays dividends to free up highly skilled Tier 1 and Tier 2 engineers to handle resolving the most difficult and costly network issues while using less expensive personnel to handle easier ones.
But justifying a network investment on a soft, intuitive argument like this alone doesn’t usually suffice. And, depending on what industry you are in, the cost savings potential will vary. At the high end, in many financial and brokerage institutions, a minute of downtime can cost the company millions of dollars. So being able to shave even a single minute off network downtime with a pervasive monitoring tool represents an immediate recovery of the fabric investment.
An intelligent, searchable network monitoring fabric with 100% accuracy sounds pretty useful. But can you calculate a solid ROI to justify it? We all know intuitively that there are substantial bottomline benefits to reducing unplanned network downtime and improving the management of corporate risk. It follows that it also pays dividends to free up highly skilled Tier 1 and Tier2 engineers to resolve the most difficult and costly network issues. That way, you can use less expensive personnel to handle the more common, numerous, and easily resolvable problems.
But justifying a network investment using soft, intuitive arguments like these alone often doesn’t suffice in an economic climate where budgets are closely guarded and business cases for procurements are mandatory. And depending on what industry you are in, the cost savings potential and payback will vary.
