Analyst firms Gartner, Inc. and Forrester are projecting accelerated data virtualization adoption for both first-time and expanded deployments. What are the uses cases for this technology? At its Data and Analytics Summit in London in March 2018, Gartner answered this question by identifying 13 data virtualization use cases. This paper explores each of these use cases by:

The growing need for data governance, risk and compliance, data analysis and data value still drives strategic requirements in metadata management and the growth of its solutions. Data and analytics leaders can use this vendor evaluation to find the most appropriate solution for their organization.
A Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) audit can be passed by complying with the bare minimum requirements, but that falls short of the purpose of it: to secure and protect cardholder data.
Meeting compliance is about passing an audit at a specific point in time and also maintaining it after the audit. The real challenge is sustaining continuous compliance to avoid costly breaches at the hands of motivated and skilled adversaries.
Indeed, as detailed in Verizon's "2017 Payment Security Report," nearly half (45%) of the companies examined between 2015 and 2016 were not fully PCI DSS compliant.

Making Tax Digital (MTD) is part of a global trend. Governments around the world are making moves to implement electronic data submission and auditing requirements. It makes sense for them, of course – governments say that they are losing billions in tax revenue every year due to non-compliance, whether that’s through simple error or conscious fraud.
The world of IT is undergoing a digital transformation. Applications are growing fast, and so are the users consuming them. These applications are everywhere—in the datacenter, on virtual and/or microservices platforms, in the cloud, and as SaaS. More and more apps are now being moved out of datacenters to a cloud-based infrastructure.
In order for an optimized and secure delivery of these applications, IT needs specific network appliances called Application Delivery Controllers (ADCs). These ADCs come in hardware, virtual, and containerized form factors, and are sized by Network Administrators based on the current and future usage of applications. The challenge with this is that it’s hard to foresee sizing or scalability requirements for these ADCs since users are constantly increasing, and applications are consistently evolving, as well as moving out of datacenters.
Complicating matters, most ADCs are fixed-capacity network appliances that provide zero or minimum expansion capability
This paper proposes standard terminology for categorizing the types of prefabricated modular data centers, defines and compares their key attributes, and provides a framework for choosing the best approach(es) based on business requirements.
Traditional backup systems fail to meet the needs of modern organisations by focusing on backup, not recovery. They treat databases as generic files to be copied, rather than as transactional workloads with specific data integrity, consistency, performance, and availability requirements.

Unstructured data has exploded in volume over the past decade. Unstructured data, media files and other data can be created just about anywhere on the planet using almost any smart device available today. As the amount of unstructured data grows exponentially, customers using this data need to be able to take advantage of the right storage solutions to support all of their file and object data requirements. IBM® recently added a new storage system to their Spectrum product family, IBM Spectrum Network Attached Storage (NAS). IBM Spectrum NAS adds another software-defined file storage system to IBM’s current unstructured data storage solutions, IBM Spectrum Scale™ and IBM Cloud Object Storage (COS). Below, we will discuss the three systems and supply some guidance on when and where to use each of them.
The crisis of mass power consumption in the corporate data center has come to a head. Power required to run data centers in the U.S. is estimated to be as much as that produced by five power plants in a year. Energy expenditures and requirements have doubled in the last five years, and computer disposal is the fastest growing type of waste in the world, according to top Stanford researchers and Greenpeace.
BlueArc’s Titan Architecture creates a revolutionary step in file servers by creating a hardware-based file system that can scale throughput, IOPS and capacity well beyond conventional software-based file servers. With its ability to virtualize a massive storage pool of up to 4 petabytes of usable, tiered storage, Titan can scale with growing data requirements and provide a competitive advantage for business processes by consolidating applications while ensuring optimal performance.
Today, as IT departments struggle to design and implement solutions capable of managing exponential data growth with strict requirements for application scale and performance, many
of them are turning to in-memory data grids (IMDGs).

IT leaders are required to deliver improved performance and increase efficiencies while maintaining an enterprise-class infrastructure for their customer’s database environments. A complete portfolio consisting of flash in the storage controller, flash in disk shelves, and all-flash arrays is the best way to solve complex database performance requirements at multiple levels in your environment. The NetApp flash portfolio is capable of solving database performance and I/O latency problems encountered by many database deployments.
IT managers and line-of-business stakeholders are striving to increase efficiency of their application environments. The biggest challenges they face in supporting database environments are managing data growth and database size, and meeting database performance requirements. This ESG Lab Report documents the performance, reliability, availability, and serviceability of NetApp EF Series flash arrays in Oracle database environments.
IT has never been more important to doing business, which means that IT infrastructure must be simpler, smarter, faster, more flexible, and more business-aligned than ever. New service delivery models are driving new Tier-1 storage requirements that reveal how the traditional focus on performance and availability are clearly not enough to support virtualization, ITaaS, and new cloud service delivery models. The world is moving rapidly towards a New Style of IT, and will leave behind any business that doesn’t adapt even more rapidly. Is your storage ready?

But what seems like a spoon full of sugar is often a tough pill to swallow when you consider regulatory requirements from agencies like the FDA for use of these networks. Adopting new technologies that allow employees to share information and exchange ideas with each other and with your customers is often the best way to achieve better business results, but doing so can involve considerable risk. That’s because the content people create using these technologies is subject to the scrutiny of regulators, legislators, and litigators. On top of that, increasing litigation has made it a business requirement to consider solutions that help bring down skyrocketing legal costs. Pharmaceuticals companies must be knowledgeable of, and abide by, specific information retention regulations in every country where they do business, including those countries that prohibit data from leaving the countries’ borders. Not having technology in place to help manage these requirements and increasing risks, or

Don’t let SaaS data security concerns stop you from migrating to the cloud. Learn how encryption and tokenization satisfy legal requirements and industry mandates for protecting sensitive data in SaaS cloud applications.
Data center requirements are shifting as the business environment evolves to leverage new technologies. Organizations are turning to multicloud environments comprising a mix of private cloud, public cloud, and on-premise infrastructure to best address their unique needs. Understandably, this shift is putting a renewed emphasis on security, automation, orchestration, and agility. IT leaders are responding by building and deploying multicloud data center networks that leverage automation and software-defined networks (SDN) as a cost effective means of providing dynamic network control.
Of course, while many organizations are recognizing the need for a data center upgrade, not all have the same drivers. All, however, need to make a business case for the investment. Here are four common inflection points that can help you to justify the need for data center upgrades that support business goals.

Who Should Watch?
Anyone responsible for connectivity of cloud resources, including cloud architects, cloud infrastructure managers, cloud engineers, and networking staff.
Virtually every business-oriented conversation Wikibon has with senior IT leaders
includes a discussion of digital transformation. The relevance to this research is the
increasing interdependency between organizations and the data they use, create,
access, share and store. Digital means data and lots of it; and this data must be
protected. The data requirements facing organizations today as a direct result of digital
initiatives are unprecedented and require new approaches for protecting and enabling
recovery for high value data assets.
Governments around the world are trying to keep pace with the digital tsunami and
new/evolving regulations will further pressure data protection and recovery
requirements. For example, the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
states that organizations must take appropriate measures to ensure the ability to restore
personal data “in a timely manner in the event of a physical or technical incident.”
Beginning in May of 2018, penalties for non-co

ESG Lab evaluated the Zero Data Loss Recovery Appliance from Oracle with a focus on its ability to deliver reliable data protection by recovering Oracle databases to any point in time with sub-second RPO in a highly scalable scale-out solution that is easy to use and manage.
Year after year, ESG respondents consistently cite improving data backup and recovery among the top IT priorities in our annual spending intentions survey (including 2016’s iteration). Why? Because when unforeseen infrastructure failures or data corruptions occur, the ability to restore not only business-critical information but also application and end-user access to that information become paramount. Lost or prolonged inaccessibility to business-critical data and applications most often means lost revenue and productivity to the business, and possibly the inability to meet regulatory requirements.
