Backup appliances do one thing well, store backup data. Object storage systems can also fulfill this role. But unlike typical backup appliances, object storage systems can do so much more. Download a new white paper from Storage Switzerland, sponsored by Cloudian, that explores easily scalable object storage as an option for backups.
Every organization is under pressure to meet the exponential growth in demand for file storage capacity. Surveys show, however, that 60% or more of data on Tier 1 storage is either dormant or rarely used. Download this white paper to learn more about how enterprise file management can help your business maximize storage capacity.
This white paper addresses five key aspects of IT that are inextricably tied to computing’s physical realities, even as that computing becomes more virtualized. Download this white paper to learn more about software defined networks for the data center.
After looking at the specifics around LIB and lead-acid energy storage alternatives, we can see the future looks promising for lithium ion batteries. They are designed to bring extended life, reduced weight, smaller size and greater flexibility to modern data center providers.

As data centers deploy virtualization and consolidate equipment for more efficient computing, the average rack power density is constantly rising. While an average cabinet supported 3 – 4 kW a few years ago, today that power management load is considered in low-density environments. It is certainly not uncommon to have cabinets drawing 9 – 15 kW and in several cases, even higher than that. With the rise in processing being done at every cabinet, strong attention needs to be paid to the cabinet power distribution strategy so that the highest levels of availability and efficiency are achieved with minimum management overhead.
