Looking for the right Flash Array for you? Tired of all data being treated the same but want to save time and budget?
Flash storage is helping to address the latency inherent with disk drives, enabling you to virtualize more, and reduce application response times. It's an inescapable fact that the $/GB of flash is much higher than disk drives.
So why do the majority of storage vendors indiscriminately accelerate all data, regardless of its value to your business?
All-flash arrays waste money by storing non-critical data in flash, and hybrid arrays can't control whether mission-critical or non-critical data accesses flash, leading to unpredictable performance. So what do you do to find a solution that addresses both of these issues?
Download now and see NexGen's approach to value-driven data management. Make it simple to control what data is stored in flash and affordably tailor application performance to match your organizations priorities now!

To manage threats to the enterprise and successfully meet compliance challenges, organizations need a comprehensive security strategy that can successfully do battle with inside as well as outside threats. Today, companies are increasingly leveraging security information management (SIM) solutions to build a clean, concise, and manageable process for dealing with the tremendous volumes of raw security information from disparate devices, applications, and databases.
Enterprises understand the importance of securing web applications to protect critical corporate and customer data. What many don't understand, is how to implement a robust process for integrating security and risk management throughout the web application.
This paper discusses the challenges of managing applications in highly dynamic IT environments such as public and private Clouds. Modern enterprise applications are engineered for agility and are frequently deployed over flexible IT infrastructures.
Beyond a customer’s digital profile is their real-world identity. Knowing this information and how it fits into the full customer journey is critical. Along with in-store purchase data, you can also gain insight into their brick-and-mortar buying habits, like the time of day they’re most likely to shop, the average time spent in a store, the frequency of their visits or the categories of products for which they shopped.
Moving an organization's critical data from a legacy system promises numerous benefits, but only if the migration is handled correctly. In practice, it takes an understanding of the entire ERP data lifecycle combined with industry-specific experience, knowledge, and skills to drive the process through the required steps accurately, efficiently, and in the right order. Read this white paper to learn more.
A critical step in moving from a shared virtualized environment toward a private cloud is the transition from infrastructure optimization to service optimization. NetApp’s design approach, technologies, and ecosystem integration build upon our storage efficiencies to deliver service-level efficiencies using centralized, policy-based management and automation. With NetApp® OnCommand® Workflow Automation, an efficient service-oriented approach can be implemented that enables storage provisioning, data protection, and operational processes to be integrated and automated. As a result, enterprises can meet workload service-level requirements while greatly reducing management costs and improving business agility.
Open Compute has had a significant impact on the thinking about data center design. Until now, the focus has been on systems at the rack level, leaving unanswered questions about the power infrastructure upstream of the rack. In this paper, we address critical questions about the implications of Open Compute on the upstream power infrastructure, including redundancy, availability, and flexibility. We introduce simplified reference designs that support OCP and provide a capital cost analysis to compare traditional and OCP-based designs. We also present an online TradeOff Tool that allows data center decision makers to better understand the cost differences and cost drivers to various architectures.
