  • The state of the software-defined storage market

    The software-defined storage market is getting a lot of attention these days, piquing the interest of budget-challenged storage managers. But the lure of software running on the cheap may be misleading if you're not ready for some DIY or to sacrifice some of the features you come to expect in storage systems. We profile the various iterations of software-defined storage, and offer detailed pros and cons of each.

    Some say that archiving is one of the key killer apps that will make cloud storage a popular option. There are some compelling advantages to shipping unused data off site, but you need to know about the sometimes subtle differences among these services.

  • Updating app performance management for the app economy

    Traditional metrics like low disk space and adequate infrastructure are just as necessary to companies' application performance management (APM) strategies as they were decades ago, in the early stages of computerized work processes. But there's one crucial piece of APM that modern companies need to focus on if they want to stay competitive in today's "app economy": user experience. Unfortunately, many CIOs' app performance management strategies sorely need an update, whether it's because of a complex IT infrastructure or inadequate APM tools.

    In this issue of CIO Decisions, IT leaders and experts offer app performance management tips and best practices. Plus, we give an overview of how cognitive systems like IBM Watson could be a competitive advantage for companies; look at how Agile methodology can be applied to CIOs' change management strategies; delve into the key takeaways from the Society for Information Management's latest CIO survey; talk to Nemertes CEO Johna Till Johnson about why companies need to rethink their security architectures; and examine the benefits of a tight CIO-CMO partnership. Continue Reading

  • Six hot data storage trends for 2015

    For 12 years, Storage magazine has presented its roster of new data storage trends that are ready to have an impact in data centers. We’ll tell you why VMware VVOLs, all-flash arrays, cloud disaster recovery, flash caching, server SANs and hybrid arrays should be on your short list for storage technology refreshes.

    Admins struggled with backing up virtual machines (VMs), until vendors responded with updated suites and new backup apps especially for VMs. But there were more basic issues with supporting virtual environments with traditional SAN and NAS systems. A handful of startups stepped up with arrays that shed the paradigms of the past in favor of a hypervisor-centric approach. Find out what life after LUNs is all about.
