In this piece, we break down the difference between data management and secondary storage. This is necessary to understand the importance of what Komprise presented at Storage Field Day. Their software solution provides data management to make data visible, save space, and manage your data in a way that enables the data, instead of just storing it.
On today’s show, each of our roundtable panelists chose what was the hot ticket item of 2017. Tune in to hear their arguments why 2017 was the year of SD-WAN, HCI, Net Neutrality, or Data Management!
If the name Congruity360 isn’t immediately familiar, don’t worry, you haven’t fallen out of the IT loop. The company was established in 2017 after a merger with Congruity and KNJ.

The Technical Case: Continuing the blog posts on Storage Resource Analysis (SRA), this post focuses on the technical case on why analysis of your storage platforms is important and how it might help you discover inconsistencies in storage environments.

Virtualization is seen as the technology that makes it possible to do more with less, but there are many pitfalls to consider when virtualizing server infrastructure. This article suggests planning decisions to be considered that, if overlooked, could ruin the total cost of ownership (TCO) and the return on on investment (ROI) expected from this virtual infrastructure.
Previous posts have discussed reasons for migration and the need to identify all of the servers accessing your storage resources. In this post, I will cover the need to perform a full inventory of connected hosts and the gap analysis work to be performed before migrations can start.
