The nature of the financial services industry places a myriad of international compliance requirements on a company's IT team, as well as an expectation by its customers to deliver the high test levels of performance and reliability.
To survive and thrive, businesses in the industry must not only keep pace with customer demand but gain competitive advantage. Those demands mean the IT team must be at the forefront of adopting emerging technologies.
This is certainly true for Orangefield Columbus, who recently experienced significant growth in its multiple databases which led to the serious performance degradation of its existing storage system. By focusing on a proactive data management storage array, Orangefield was able to eliminate resource contention.
Download now and examine Orangefield's journey to find a solution that would meet, and exceed, their performance and capacity requirements.
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!

Enterprises grapple with a host of challenges that are spurring the creation of hybrid clouds: collections of computing infrastructure spread across multiple data centers and multiple cloud providers. This new concept often provokes uncertainty, which must be addressed head on.
As more applications and computing resources move to the cloud, enterprises will become more dependent on cloud vendors, whether the issue is access, hosting, management, or any number of other services. Cloud consumers want to avoid
vendor lock-in—having only one cloud provider. They want to know that they will have visibility into data and systems across multiple platforms and providers. They want to be able to move servers and storage around without a negative impact on application availability.
The good news is that more solutions become available every day, but with a learning curve and numerous management challenges and considerations.

The rising demands for capturing and managing video surveillance data are placing new pressures on state and local governments, law enforcement agencies, and education officials. The challenges go beyond the expanding costs of equipment, storage, software and management time. Officials must also lay the right foundation to scale their capabilities, improve performance and still remain flexible in a rapidly evolving ecosystem of surveillance tools.
Find out what state, local government and education IT leaders need to know, and what steps you can take to:
• Improve performance and ROI on cameras-per-server for the dollars invested
• Optimize and simplify the management of daily surveillance processing, including the integration of facial recognition, redaction and analysis software
• Fortify reliability and dependability to reduce the risk of surveillance data retrieval failures.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is composed of sensor-embedded devices and machines
that exchange data with each other and the cloud through a secure network.
Often referred to as “things” or “edge devices”, these intelligent machines
connect to the internet either directly or through an IoT gateway,
enabling them to send data to the cloud. Analyzing this data can reveal
valuable insights about these objects and the business processes
they’re part of, helping enterprises optimize their operations.
Devices in IoT deployments can span nearly any industry or use case.
Each one is equipped with sensors, processing power, connectivity,
and software, enabling asset control and other remote interactions
over the internet. Unlike traditional IT assets, these edge devices are
resource-constrained (either by bandwidth, storage, or processing
power) and are typically found outside of a data center, creating unique
security and management considerations.
Today’s organisations are tasked with analysing multiple data types, coming from a wide variety of sources. Faced with massive volumes and heterogeneous types of data, organisations are finding that in order to deliver analytic insights in a timely manner, they need a data storage and analytics solution that offers more agility and flexibility than traditional data management systems. A data lake is an architectural approach that allows you to store enormous amounts of data in a central location, so it’s readily available to be categorised, processed, analysed, and consumed by diverse groups within an organisation? Since data—structured and unstructured—can be stored as-is, there’s no need to convert it to a predefined schema and you no longer need to know what questions you want to ask of your data beforehand.

With customers demanding higher service levels, enterprise applications need to be fast and available at all times. Flash storage is the obvious choice if you want to make the best use of your IT resources and get the most from your applications, but which flash solution should you choose? This eBook discusses nine specific areas where NetApp ONTAP flash storage systems enable business breakthroughs. Topics include nondisruptive operations, cost economies, business agility, and providing a bridge to the hybrid cloud.
"All-Flash Storage for Dummies, NetApp Special Edition, explores the expanding role of all-flash storage in the enterprise. Originally used to accelerate performance for dedicated, mission-critical applications, all-flash arrays are now replacing disk and hybrid-flash systems as the preferred storage systems for virtualized environments. At the same time, scale-out solutions have emerged that are designed to power the new cloud services of the future.
The book examines various elements of all-flash storage: how it evolved, and why you should now consider it for all of your primary applications. You get acquainted with the NetApp portfolio of all-flash storage solutions and learn how each is designed to meet the needs of a specific type of application environment.
You’ll also learn five strategies for making smart decisions about all-flash arrays for your next storage project. In that classic Dummies style, you’ll walk away with useful tips on how to select and deploy all-flash
How can hybrid-flash array users benefit from a move to all-flash? This case study profiles a large European organization that moved their VMware server and desktop environments from hybrid-flash to NetApp AFF all-flash systems.
