Read this paper to learn how Dell has used its Generation 12 servers powered by Intel® Xeon® processors with direct attached storage to demonstrate that a system with 43% flash and intelligent tiering can perform as well as 100% flash for OLTP databases using Microsoft’s SQL server.
Solid state storage is increasingly deployed in all sizes of
datacenters, from the small and medium business to the
large enterprise. It comes in many forms including
hybrid arrays, direct attached drives, PCIe flash and
accelerators that fit somewhere in between servers and
storage. With the price of flash continuing to drop,
hybrid storage is becoming more compelling to the small
and medium business for critical computing applications
such as databases and day-to-day operational
NetApp® SnapManager® for Oracle (SMO) is designed to significantly simplify all these tasks and more. In this article, we examine how you can deploy SMO to simplify and even automate data protection, recovery, and cloning across both primary and secondary storage. Learn more today!
This paper focuses generally on optimal storage and storage management for SharePoint and specifically evaluates NetApp's approach, detailing how the capabilities in NetApp's DataONTAP and SnapManager for SharePoint Server offerings help to drive storage efficiency, reduce cost, and exclude complexity in a comprehensive SharePoint implementation. It is not so much a "how to" guide, but rather a "why to" explanation. Learn more today!
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.
On-Demand Managed Hosting ranges from simple Managed Servers with one or two processors to the design of complex computing environments, which typically include multiple servers, storage, networking, security, backup, load balancing, and more.
Learn why NetApp Open Solution for Hadoop is better than clusters built on commodity storage. This ESG lab report details the reasons why NetApp's use of direct attached storage for Hadoop improves performance, scalability and availability compared to typical internal hard drive Hadoop deployments.

An effective storage management solution must consider the role of SAN security in ensuring network and data integrity. When Direct Attached Storage (DAS) was the majority of storage, security was not an issue. By preventing access to the server you could stop access to the server-owned storage resources of disk and tape. Holes in SAN security practices can threaten data integrity and system availability.

"Storage consolidation" is a term that has typically meant the consolidation of direct attached storage to a storage network, whether it is Network Attached Storage (NAS) or Storage Area Network (SAN). Consolidation has usually been undertaken to improve utilization of assets, lower the total cost of ownership (TCO), increase return on capital investment, improve IT operational efficiency and increase service levels.
This white paper looks at what it takes to deliver a broad set of network storage solutions that address the ongoing needs of IT managers while accommodating their current business requirements. Learn more today!
Data is the backbone of every organization. No matter the business, industry, or size, reliable data access is essential to operations. Should a "worst-case scenario" occur, being prepared with an appropriate disaster recovery strategy is essential. Given the potential high cost associated with data loss, reliable data protection is no longer an option; rather, it is an obligation. This white paper discusses a data protection strategy that takes into consideration the business environment, offering sophisticated features while maintaining simplicity, affordability, and reliability.
The growth of structured data from databases, e-mail and other applications has been exponential. The increasing flood of data can lead to a host of problems — failing to recognize that data storage must be managed as a critical resource often results in a very difficult environment to manage, a higher cost of ownership, less responsiveness to change and added risk to the business. This white paper discusses how a dedicated, optimized network storage solution can increase data availability and reduce operating costs by simplifying management and improving capacity utilization.
