It’s a pretty direct route to solid data protection, but there are key decisions to make and some gotchas to watch out for.

    Many companies want the convenience of a storage cloud service, but don’t want to ship their data off-site. OpenStack, an open source collection comprising a cloud operating system, an orchestration layer and service apps, can use existing storage resources to create an internal cloud storage service.

    NetApp, EMC and Dell all earned high marks from users in the ninth annual Quality Awards service and reliability survey for NAS systems. EMC and Dell finished in a virtual dead heat in the enterprise division, while NetApp outdistanced EMC by a slightly wider margin in the midrange group.
