Leveraging Capacity - SD CHI 08
sponsored by Storage Decisions
Data reduction technologies like data de-duplication and single instancing are really starting to take hold in the industry, with recent analyst surveys indicating strong purchase intent over the next 12 months. To date, these technologies have only addressed secondary or off-line storage (primarily backups) because they typically have not offered the performance necessary to be used against primary, on-line applications. Over the last twelve months, newer technologies have emerged that offer high performance, in-line data reduction sufficient for use with primary storage and on-line applications.The data reduction market is now splitting into "primary storage optimization" and "secondary storage optimization." The break out session will discuss the emerging primary storage optimization technologies and the value propositions it offers to end users, identifying the criteria necessary for primary storage optimization offerings, introduce the vendors playing in this space, and discuss the pros and cons of the different architectures and approaches to primary storage optimization.
