Too Much Data To Store?

In times when even small companies have produced a large volume of data, a new focus on enterprise storage systems: where and how to provide data on safety, without spending lots of money and without having to maintain a huge data center ?

Who relies on storing information to see your business evolve knows the importance of a high-performance database which is prepared for disaster recovery in the center of critical operations of the company. After all, the intelligent management of ever-increasing amounts of information has proven to be increasingly important for IT managers.

One of the most popular storage architectures is the Storage Area Network (SAN). In short, it shares the data on servers that are on a network data storage. But there is one major impediment: the cost.

Much has been said about virtualization storage and has become fashionable, and for many, is the great “savior.” However, in the midst of all the guesses on the subject, it is common to see entrepreneurs out there who feel somewhat lost amid the concepts and proposals that are often complicated and time-consuming and perhaps provide unreliable solutions.

Join the possibility of storage virtualization and a reduced cost is something that has been highly sought. Virtualized environment has total control, and you can add or reduce resources according to demand. And several companies have already been involved in providing solutions such as HP, which has the P4000, among others.

The P4000 is a storage solution with network architecture based on Grid Storage, that is, the more equipment is acquired, the greater the performance and availability of the environment. Uses existing infrastructure on the client, avoid costly networking. It is ideal for environments with virtualization of servers and customers seeking the first SAN storage.

In short: A great idea. Because it’s possible to start small and grow as needed, making upgrades to increase capacity – you can get, for example, with 2.4TB and nodes (modules) of storage may be included on demand and increase effective immediately.

In addition, it supports many operating systems:

Windows Dedicated Server 2003 and 2008 (Hyper-V as well), Red Hat, Fedora, HP-UX (obvious), VMware, XenServer, and X Leopard OS.

So instead of worrying about the latent need storage of your company and how much it will cost, how it is done and what size job you have from there, you focus on managing data and enjoy the consequences with a single change in its strategy: reduction of administrative costs, increase employee productivity and access to accurate information in real time.
