Software Defined Storage
If you are familiar with the term Cisco Validated Design (CVD), you already know why we are excited about it. If you’re somewhere in the middle–kinda get it, but don’t know why it’s cool–let me break it down for you. What my super smart technical lead would tell you: The published CVD details Scality RING software running on a cluster of UCS S3260 servers. The strategy for this project started with an approach unique from any other vendor–focus on the core network infrastructure and build up from there. Networking has always been a fundamental building block of software-defined storage, yet it is.

By Tom Leyden, Vice President of Global Partner Marketing at Scality The Cisco® Visual Networking Index (VNI) is an invaluable resource for the Scality product marketing team, as it gives an incredibly good overview of trends and evolution for digital businesses. As you might expect, the VNI focuses on the phenomenal growth in global IP network traffic, its causes, and its implications, mainly for Cisco’s networking solutions portfolio. But it also offers great insights into storage industry trends, especially for cloud and object storage, where Scality and Cisco have joined forces. With our joint cloud and object storage solution, Cisco.

Guest Post écrit par SCC Le stockage est l’un des derniers bastions de l’IT où l’impact du digital a tardé à se faire sentir. Pourtant, après vingt ans d’une lente évolution, l’ensemble de l’écosystème du stockage semble vivre un réveil brutal. Nouvelles technologies logicielles et non plus seulement matérielles avec le SDS (software-defined stockage), nouveaux business models, systèmes plus flexibles et moins chers… La révolution est en marche alors que longtemps on a pu se contenter de changements incrémentaux successifs. Le tout, bien sûr, au service des utilisateurs et des entreprises. Quel futur pour l’infrastructure ? Et quelle place, demain, pour.

At a CrowdChat a few weeks ago, a number of us started talking about server-based storage, big data, etc, and the topic developed into a forum on data and its inherent qualities. The discussion led us to realize that data actually has a number of attributes that define it – similar to how a vector has both a direction and magnitude.
