IBM is offering new storage servers that combines RAID data security and speed with a new take on file systems and architecture to deliver even faster and more reliable data performance.
Megaupload users are expected to lose all of their uploaded data, including content they own the copyright to, thanks to this month's raid on the file-sharing company.
Be it up-scaled NAS, down-scaled SAN or a mix of the two, the market of choice for storage vendors this year appears to be the small to medium-sized business. Drobo vendor Data Robotics started the ball rolling a couple of weeks back and now RAID specialist Promise has followed suit with two new SmartStor appliances, aimed expressly at SMBs and offering support for a mix of NAS and iSCSI SAN data sharing.
With Microsoft's next generation Home Server dropping support for its storage fabric technology, Data Robotics' Drobo offers an alternative approach to building large amounts of storage using mis-matched disks. Unlike traditional RAID arrays which require all the disks used to be identical in size, Drobo's BeyondRAID storage array allows you to increase the amount of storage in an array each time you add or replace a pair of larger disks.
Low latency storage, fast multi-core CPUs, high-bandwidth interconnects and larger disk capacity is ending the reign of costly RAID controllers in favor of more elegant data protection. A report from the front lines of storage innovation.
DMDE is a powerful software for data searching, editing, and recovery on disks. It recovers directory structure and files in complex...
The South Korean police raid is part of an investigation into whether Google illegally collected personal wireless data via its Street View fleet of cars
Caching makes your RAID array go faster. But if you lose power your data can be corrupted. The old solution: a battery. The new and better solution: flash memory - with a twist.
Intelli-SMART is based on S.M.A.R.T., or Self Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology, to continuously monitor hard drives and...
RAID 5 pain is on message boards and support forums all over the net. Failed rebuilds, lost data, unhappy bosses. Why isn't RAID 5 as reliable as it is supposed to be?
Marketed as “storage that manages itself”, Data Robotics has carved a niche for its RAID protected Drobo products, primarily amongst creative professionals looking to plug extra storage into Apple Mac and Windows PCs. Now it’s hoping to widen that appeal by adding support for network sharing onto its new Drobo FS appliance.
Three years ago I warned that RAID 5 would stop working in 2009. Sure enough, no enterprise storage vendor now recommends RAID 5. Now it's RAID 6, which protects against 2 drive failures. But in 2019 even RAID 6 won't protect your data. Here's why.
The HP EVA4400 is a Storage Area Network (SAN) system that provides data storage and security on a much larger scale than a simple RAID or NAS system. We found it to be a reliable and scalable high-end data system.
If you're looking for a simple and cheap way to set up a RAID array for important data, the Adaptec ASR 5445 serial RAID controller card could be for you. We found it easy to set up and fast to access data.
Why do people think RAID means performance?George Ou, Technical Director at ZDNet and a fellow ZDnet blogger, has a great post about real life RAID performance - hardware vs software - plus some helpful comments about data layout, especially for MS SQL Server.
IntroductionStorage is one of those things that we can never get enough of, both in capacity and in performance. This article is going to compare a large set of RAID performance data and perhaps debunk some storage myths.
Software RAID on Linux is a snap, thanks to the mdadm tool that comes with most modern Linux distributions. Software RAID, particularly RAID1, is an inexpensive way to create instant backups and protect your systems against data loss in the event that one drive fails.
The Australian Federal Police (AFP) are investigating allegations of software piracy and serious misconduct involving pornography within the ranks of information technology outsourcing giant, Electronic Data Systems (EDS).EDS admitted that it was investigating the activities of its employees at a Sydney-based Commonwealth Bank data centre in July shortly after a dramatic account of security staff swooping onto the facility to conduct a surprise raid leaked to the media.
This is a cost-effective choice if you need a router for your DSL-connected network that can be a RAID-based file server, wireless LAN access point, firewall and much besides.
RAID, which stands for redundant array of independent (or inexpensive) disks, is a method of placing the same data in different locations on multiple hard drives. There are many different types of RAID (called RAID "levels"), and each has its own relative advantages and disadvantages. This article looks at the most commonly used RAID architectures for Oracle databases.
Compaq Computer has released a higher-speed PCI card that controls RAID (redundant array of independent disks) storage systems, the Houston computer maker said Tuesday. The card supports the new PCI-X input-output standard, which transfers data twice as fast as the top speed of the existing PCI system. The system has battery-powered high-speed cache memory to speed data transfers and protect the data in the event of a power failure. The system costs $1,599, according to Compaq's Web site. --Stephen Shankland, Special to ZDNet News
Duo teams disk and tapeDynamic Network Factory has teamed traditional disk-based RAID with tape backup to provide relatively low-cost, fault-tolerant storage.The company's DataStor RAID server, which was demonstrated at NetWorld+Interop in Atlanta last week, offers disk storage capacities of 75GB and 112GB as well as RAID levels 0, 1 and 5 in a box with fault-tolerant features and a data transfer rate of up to 80MB per second.
