A revolution is upon us. For the first time in the history of computers, the speed of storage has caught up with the rate of the computing resources that use that storage. Up until this moment, storage has always been the bottleneck. Although your computer can store some information in its primary memory, known as RAM, this storage has a physical limit. Past that limit, you'll need to read data from a secondary storage device such as a hard disk, which is a much slower process. If you've ever tried to copy a file from an external device onto your computer, for example, you'll notice that it takes much more time than opening a file that's already stored in your computer's memory.
When it comes to virtualizing your office, it’s important to consider whether you should replace older methods with their digital alternatives. Ever since the development of cloud technology, one option we have had is to replace local backup methods with off-site, cloud storage. To help you weigh your options, we’ve compiled a list of the pros and cons to each method.

With Hewlett Packard Enterprise's recent announcement that it will soon be bringing the ground-breaking InfoSight technology to its 3PAR StoreServe, the value of HPE's recent acquisition of Nimble Software is more clear than ever. The move means InfoSight will soon be available across a full portfolio of HPE data solutions: from systems for small businesses all the way up to the largest enterprises. This makes HPE’s storage portfolio the most complete in the industry. Since InfoSight learns by analyzing data from its installed base, it's about to get a whole lot smarter.
When HPE acquired 3PAR back in 2010, their Storage Array Network got a boost that made them a contender in data security, and storage against companies like Dell EMC and IBM. So far, this flash-optimized data security has successfully competed in the mid-range, and enterprise level storage arenas.
Infinidat has recently released version 4.0 of it's InfiniBox software, the brains behind its speedy, massive, hybrid flash/hard-disk storage arrays. What’s the big deal? A hybrid storage array that meets or beats all-flash arrays on all their traditional strong points, at the cost you’d expect from inexpensive spinning-disk arrays, plus seven nines reliability and super-fast synchronous data replication so that no data is ever at risk of being lost. As more companies discover the benefits of InfiniBox, the notion that all-flash arrays are suitable for high-performance storage may prove to be just another flash in the pan.
