Storage Tiers or Tears?

I always enjoy reading StorageNewsletter and in particular the insights of Philippe Nicolas. His recent article on Storage Tiering (“Tier or Not Tier”) is a fairly complete overview of the history of the companies involved and the broad technical evolution of tiering through the ages.

Insights In Black and White

From everything we hear here at Small World Big Data, many of you prefer our analyst video content, but still many of you are also fans (I’m humbled even writing that much!) of my analyst writings – both in-depth reports and quick-take columns in publications like SearchStorage and Virtualization Review (if you haven’t read anything, just browse back through this blog a bit!).

Market Research – Upcoming Topics

We host free kickoff and summary online events for every research track.  Our research efforts include targeted vendor interviews, an “IT pro” survey and a thorough report on key findings and recommendations.

Working From Anywhere

Working from Home (WFH) for some becomes Working From Anywhere (WFA) for most. How can IT best cope?

The Data Center Lives On

The IT Data Center still hosts and protects mission-critical apps and data.  It’s also a key integration point between edges, clouds, services, and global users. What’s in store next for Data Centers?

Fighting Shadow IT

Shadow IT threatens GRC (governance, compliance, risk) and corporate integrity. It increases cost and risk. How can IT best identify and address Shadow IT?

Bigger Data Unchained

Data lakes, edge computing, seamless object archives from tape to cloud. Data is everywhere – how can IT best serve out access and enhance leverage of a companies bigger data assets?

New Frontiers In Handling Hot Data

Great leaps in performance like emerging NVMEoF, new memory class storage and soon computational storage are coming along. But also potentially huge changes in how computing is done. Is IT ready?

Controlling Clouds, Cloud Controls??

Cloud accelerated in 2020, so did IT challenges with hybrid/multi cloud use, data protection and SaaS management. Cloud-based management services also proliferated, easing IT across on-prem and cloud. Is cloud still the winning bet?
