The Importance of Flash Storage in a Hybrid IT World

It is possible that a significant number of people reading this piece may find themselves confused, or at least intrigued, by its title: “The Importance of Flash Storage in a Hybrid IT World.” Might it be that two separate white papers have been inadvertently muddled and integrated? After all, "hybrid IT" is about a sweeping strategic trend for the industry, whereas "flash storage" seems prosaically tactical. Also, while neither item is a market per se—flash is a storage media and hybrid IT is essentially a delivery and consumption construct—nonetheless there are absolute, direct, and valuable connections between the two that categorically need to be exposed, understood, and evaluated by any organization that is seeking to optimize itself...whether that optimization is from any mix of multiple perspectives—operations, applications, and finances.

Why Flash Storage for Hybrid IT?

The term hybrid IT describes a delivery and consumption trend. Flash storage, on the other hand, describes a medium often delivered as a drive or as memory. Connections exist between them, though—important connections any IT organization hoping to optimize itself must understand.

Hybrid IT is marked by a mix of on- and off-prem resources, often with multiple deployment types and consumption modes. It tends to accompany other newer approaches: i.e., convergence efforts, software-defined system implementations, or modernized application rollouts. By leveraging hybrid IT, an organization can deliver services in a more optimized, balanced, automated, granular, and flexible fashion.

Therefore, hybrid IT—and the specific activities conducted in hybrid environments—demand flash storage. Different organizations, however, need different flash types, amounts, locations, and deployment processes.

How to Buy Backup and Recovery: A Customer’s Evaluation

This book is meant to be a quick read to provide insight on overcoming common obstacles when choosing enterprise backup and recovery technology. This book began when the author (a Frost Bank IT professional) set out to update his backup technology. As he performed online searches, he was unable to find credible information on new technologies to help him change his enterprise backup space paradigm. He wanted something different that could restore more quickly than his existing platform and take more frequent backups, including intra-day restore points. He also wanted something easier for his teams to use, with minimal training required to become fully operational. In the end analysis, his hope is to provide readers with the valuable insights he wished someone had shared with him during his search for the backup "promised land".

8 ESSENTIAL PRACTICES FOR HYPERVISOR BACKUP

Virtualization tools like Hyper-V, Nutanix, VMware and other hypervisors allow systems to overcome physical barriers between resources while optimizing server and storage utilization as well as offering increasing flexibility. But protecting the environment and the ever-growing amount of structured and unstructured data being created is still too often ineffectively addressed with complex, on-premises secondary storage models that come with heavy administrative overhead and infrastructure costs. The cloud is not shackled by these limitations.

The cloud is meeting the increasing needs related to business continuity and information governance as new trends change how infrastructure resiliency and long-term retention shape the data protection landscape. Download this asset to learn 8 essential real-world practices to put in place for hypervisor backup, archival and disaster recovery (DR).
