Why it's time to consolidate your primary workloads on all-flash storage

The days of using all-flash storage for a single, performance-critical application are ending as IT decision makers realize they can reduce complexity, enhance agility and lower costs by consolidating multiple workloads onto a single, scalable, all-flash storage platform.

Nearly 60% of all-flash array deployments are now being used for application consolidation, according to 451 Research, which states that “the consolidation use case represents the future” of all-flash arrays.1 By the end of this decade, all-flash arrays will drive more than 70% of all primary storage spending, according to the IDC White Paper, “NetApp All Flash FAS: Flash-Optimized Storage for Mixed Workload Consolidation,” August 2016.




Nine reasons why NetApp ONTAP flash storage is the smart choice for business

Flash is a new and faster medium for storing data, but it is not a new way to store data. Data stored on flash still needs to be managed and protected, just as it has always been. This includes protection against failed devices, protection against data corruption (intentional and accidental), and facilities for disaster recovery. In the early days of flash adoption, customers were willing to sacrifice basic data management features for the sake of speed, but this is no longer the case. As flash storage has matured, the need for enterprise data management features has become a requirement.




Become a data thriver

IDC defines digital transformation (DX) as a set of practices that leverage new business, technology, and operating models to disrupt rivals and markets in pursuit of business performance and growth. Successful DX relies on converting data into actionable insights, and this reliance on data is contributing to a new era of the data age.

IDC forecasts that by 2025 the global “datasphere” will grow to 163 zettabytes (that’s one trillion gigabytes). All this data will unlock unique user experiences and a new world of business opportunities. Organisations that embrace data-driven DX are attracting new customers and developing new revenue streams faster than their competitors. IDC refers to these companies as “Data Thrivers.”




Hybrid cloud and data fabric for dummies

As cloud deployments evolve and fragment into an era of interconnected clouds, the changing role of information technology (IT) as the architect and broker of services is more critical than ever before. To harness the hybrid cloud, IT organisations need the right tools and technologies to make hybrid cloud strategies a flexible and efficient reality for their organisations.

Hybrid Cloud & Data Fabric For Dummies, NetApp Special Edition, consists of four short chapters that explore challenges in the hybrid cloud model and innovative solutions that a data fabric brings in addressing those challenges.




Backup to the cloud for dummies

Traditional data backup technologies, such as tape, are slow, expensive, risky, and complex. Lost or damaged tapes, long restore times, and painfully slow management are driving organisations to look for better data protection solutions.

This book provides an overview of cloud-integrated data protection, which addresses many of today’s backup challenges by transforming the cloud into a low-cost, instantly accessible data storage tier.




5 myths about cloud backup

The promise of cost savings continues to attract organisations to the cloud. According to IDG, 42% of surveyed IT executives cited reducing total cost of ownership (TCO) as their primary business goal for cloud investments, making it the top reason identified by companies of all sizes. Following close behind TCO were goals to support business continuity and replace on-premises legacy technology by using cloud services.

Using cloud deployment to jump start application security

It’s possible to simply adapt to the cloud. There is far greater potential, however, in taking advantage of the move as an opportunity to re-engineer your approach to security and development in ways that can improve both and create greater organizational security.




Best practices for making the crucial shift to DevSecOps

Application security has officially moved beyond the purview of Security and Development - IT Operations now plays a role that is just as vital. With the advent of DevOps, consumers are driving shorter release cycles by development and operations that limit time for software security testing. In this report, Forrester describes best practices to help IT Operations pros integrate security while retaining or improving agility.




The security professional’s role in a DevSecOps world

As development changes – along with the ways that security, development and operations work together – the role of the security professional within the development process is also changing in significant ways. To learn about the Security Professional’s Role in a DevSecOps World.
