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!

94% of IT professionals consider it valuable to manage data based upon the business value of it. Yet only 32% are doing it - because it's hard. Are you looking to be a part of the 32% without the difficulties?
There is a substantial gap between those who want to use data to its full potential and those that are actually doing so. Storage systems have never been designed with the end-goal to help customers prioritize their data based on their own priorities and the value of that data.
Narrowing that gap may not be as hard or expensive as many companies think. Solving these challenges was one of the founding principles around NexGen's Hybrid Flash Array.
Download now and learn how IT professionals can use NexGen storage architecture and software to simplify data priority assignment and management process.
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.

Regulatory compliance, legal discovery and storage management issues are driving more organizations to consider email archiving. Here's what you should know when making decisions about your organization's use of email archiving technology.
Although hardware storage prices have come down, storage administration and software expenses still run about seven times the cost of storage hardware. Storage consolidation provides a partial solution by expanding device connectivity and reducing points of management. However, once storage is consolidated, the job is only half done. You still need a centralized, flexible method of management that masks the complexity of the storage environment and reduces administrative overhead. That’s where virtualization fits in.
Storage area networks (SAN) deliver consolidated storage and advanced storage management features. One advanced SAN configuration involves booting servers directly from the SAN, eliminating all locally attached storage, and improving server operations. Several server boot options are available. To select the right boot option for your environment, you should weigh the benefits and drawbacks of each.
Call it growth, scaling, or expansion – whatever you call it, increasing your storage resources often strikes fear and loathing in the heart of the IT administrator. It conjures up visions of downtime, extra management tasks, frustrated users, and working nights and weekends. In addition, since capacity and performance are intimately connected, increasing storage resources can require balancing changes that affects the entire the SAN.
This paper discusses how consolidating your Microsoft® SQL Server®, Exchange, and SharePoint® Server data along with your Windows® files using NetApp® storage for Windows environments reduces the cost of physical storage as well as ongoing management costs in Windows environments.

This white paper highlights an architectural design for a 50,000-seat VMware View architecture created by NetApp, VMware, Cisco, Fujitsu, and Wyse. Explore how the project demonstrates the most reliable methods for deploying a scalable and easily expandable environment, anywhere from 5,000 to 50,000 seats.
It should come as no surprise that storage budgets are constantly under pressure from opposing forces: On one hand, economic forces are pushing budgets to either stay flat or, in many cases, shrink as a percentage of a company's revenue. On the other hand, the infrastructure struggles to keep up with the pace of data growth, pressured by many variables, both social and economic. Businesses have no choice but to acclimate their storage infrastructure to the unprecedented levels at which data is growing.
As it has been the trend over the last decade, organizations must continue to deal with growing data storage requirements with the same or less resources. The growing adoption of storage-as-a-service, business intelligence, and big data results in ever more Service Level Agreements that are difficult to fulfill without IT administrators spending ever longer hours in the data center. Many organizations now expect their capital expense growth for storage to be unstoppable, and see operating expense levers - such as purchasing storage systems that are easy to manage - as the only way to control data storage-related costs.
