Unstructured data storage – on-prem vs cloud vs hybrid

by Stephen Pritchard

Businesses face the need to store ever-larger volumes of information, across a growing number of formats.

“The criteria to consider are the volume, the data gravity – where it is being generated, where it is being used, computed or consumed – security, bandwidth, regulations, latency, cost, change rate, transfer required and cost,” says Olivier Fraimbault, a board director at SNIA EMEA.

Storage Certifications to Bolster Your Skills

by Ryan Arel

"The individual vendors-specific certification programs are now compliant with these industry-standard definitions and concepts; as such, the need for the SNCP was no longer a priority," Metz said. "This has allowed SNIA to focus on expanding the online educational library of vendor-neutral materials, such as blogs, videos, webcasts and SNIA Storage Developer Conferences."
