Consolidating to a flash-optimized infrastructure results in 50% to 80% fewer drives being deployed. This, along with the need for high performance and agility, has propelled flash to have one of the highest growth rates within the storage industry. Learn how the combination of flash-optimized architectures and cloud have changed the storage requirements for mixed workloads that are common among most organizations.
Windows Server 2016 is an important release in enabling
IT to deliver on the promise of the third platform.
It provides a path to a seamless, integrated cloud
environment—incorporating public, private and hybrid
models—with the software-defined data center as the
hub. In migrating to this next-generation data center
model, it is essential that IT leaders choose the right
partner for the compute platform, as well as storage,
networking and systems management
Virtualization increases the agility and flexibility of IT organizations looking to leverage automated self-service - giving birth to cloud service. Read to learn more about the troubles traditional storage systems have with cloud and keeping pace.

This new report from Dynatrace and O'Reilly Media details the 3 stages that businesses move through as they migrate to the cloud, and a winning strategy for each stage. It includes case studies that will show you how to tackle both technical and cultural challenges along the way.
OpenLab provides an environment and set of resources where customers representing telecommunications, education, government, financial services, and virtually every other vertical market can explore new technologies, all in the spirit of network transformation. By examining SDN/network automation solutions such Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), software-defined WAN (SD-WAN), and others, OpenLab offers a platform for developing and delivering new network-integrated functionality that serves the greater need.
As agencies continue to modernize data center infrastructure to meet evolving mission needs and technologies, they are turning to agile software and cloud solutions. One such solution is hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI), a melding of virtual compute, storage, and networking capabilities supported by commodity hardware.
With data and applications growing exponentially along with the need for more storage capacity and flexibility, HCI helps offset the rising demands placed on government IT infrastructure. HCI also provides a foundation for hybrid cloud, helping agencies permanently move applications and workloads into public cloud and away from the data center.

Hybrid cloud architectures are growing in popularity as a way to cope with today's business needs. This paper outlines a framework and specific solutions for adopting a hybrid cloud architecture to support increased profits and productivity.
Read the white paper to learn how to put a plan in place for full functional validation, and get details on the importance of validating resiliency in a live environment; learn why small-scale recovery “simulations” are inadequate and misleading.
In the digital era, businesses in every industry are becoming technology companies. New business models such as
“product as a service” (in which traditional manufacturers and distributors are driving new revenue streams by
integrating software-based services into their offerings) and new operational models, such as collaboration, social
business, and mobile platforms, mean that nearly every company is deriving at least part of its revenue from cloudbased
So, why are so many of these new cloud solution providers building their businesses on shaky foundations? The
truth is, when your business is based in the cloud, you need more than on-demand leased compute and storage
capacity. You need a cloud that is enterprise-grade, secure, and resilient. Equally important—and overlooked by
too many cloud solution providers—you need a cloud platform that is able to grow your business into the future,
supporting next-generation functionality like Artificial Intelligence (AI). No matter wh

FICO, a financial services provider, wanted to address small-to-medium business (SMB) and midmarket customer requests for solutions without on-premise installation. To transition from an on-premise model to a cloud- and services-based infrastructure, FICO chose to build an OpenStack® cloud using Red Hat® solutions, including OpenShift by Red Hat and Red Hat Enterprise Linux® OpenStack Platform. As a result, FICO generated US$10 million in sales to new customers, reduced solution time to market by 50%, and lowered storage and overall infrastructure costs.

Pure Storage has significant expertise creating scalable, enterprise-class, flash-optimized storage platforms, and with FlashBlade, Pure Storage has crafted a turnkey, purpose-built platform that is well suited to cost effectively handle the performance and capacity requirements of genomics workflows. Pure Storage has differentiated itself from more established enterprise storage providers by delivering an industry-leading customer experience, as shown by its extremely high NPS, indicating it knows how to meet and is committed to meeting customer requirements. Whether genomics practitioners plan an on-premises deployment or a cloud-based deployment for their genomics workflows, they should consider the performance, cost, and patient care advantages of the Pure Storage FlashBlade when choosing a platform, particularly if they plan to retain data for a long time and use it frequently.
As flash costs continue to drop and new, flash-driven designs help to magnify the compelling economic advantages AFAs offer relative to HDD-based designs, mainstream adoption of AFAs —first for primary storage workloads and then ultimately for secondary storage workloads — will accelerate. Well-designed AFAs that still leverage legacy interfaces like SAS will be able to meet many performance requirements over the next year or two.
Those IT organisations that aim to best position themselves to handle future growth will want to look at next-generation AFA offerings, as the future is no longer flash-optimised architectures (implying that HDD design tenets had to be optimised around) —
it is flash-driven architectures.
For the past several years cloud storage has been dominated by three main players, Amazon, Google and Microsoft, offering relatively comparable services and solutions. Armed with revolutionary technology and an egalitarian philosophy, Wasabi is transforming what cloud storage can be and do.

An explosion of data storage needs, both in terms of volume and accessibility, are unmet by first-generation storage solutions. The massive datasets being generated are un-storable due to costs and unable to be fully leveraged because of speed limitations. The needs of individual businesses, and our greater economy, demand the commoditization of cloud storage. Cloud Storage 2.0 represents a new generation of solutions that promise to turn Cloud Storage into a utility along the lines of bandwidth and electricity. Leading this evolution with high-speed, low cost, reliable cloud storage is Wasabi. In this white paper we look at the genesis and possibilities of Cloud Storage 2.0, and Wasabi’s place at its forefront.
