Whitepaper: Electronic Discovery: Requirements from the Corporate Stakeholder Perspective

by BlueArcOct 01, 2008

Corporate governance-centric value propositions inherent in data management technology expenditures apply more to storage related expenditures than perhaps any other area of IT expenditure. This is so because of the heightened desire of organizations across the globe, to insulate themselves from the negative impact of out of control data management costs and the associated risks that can accrue. The mandate and responsibility for implementing risk management initiatives is shifting more into the CFO's realm whose role is being hybridized to incorporate more influence over IT and internal legal department strategies. Indeed, just as CFO's are becoming increasingly aware of the impact data management tools and infrastructure can have on mitigating organizational risk, CIOs, CTOs, and technologists are increasingly being pressured to more effectively quantify soft costs and discuss strategies that address data management risks and respective legal ramifications other stakeholders, like.


Whitepaper: Enabling Enterprise Class Features for the Mid-Range

by BlueArcOct 01, 2009

Bringing a scale-out file system with a global namespace to the mid-range is an important point- until recently, the mid-range landscape has been dominated by scale-up systems. In fact, scale-up systems are what got IT into the underutilized, stove-piped storage situation it is in today. Download this ESG whitepaper to learn how BlueArc's new storage platform, BlueArc Mercury(TM), scales in fixed increments that make it easy to install and deploy, scales up to an eight node cluster and 2 PB, making it a forceful consolidation solution.


Whitepaper: Solving the Storage Conundrum

by BlueArcOct 01, 2008

There are two things that can be done to minimize damage to Internet Services Companies caused by unexpected downtime or outages. The first is providing customer transparency, giving them detailed explanations as to exactly what's going on. The second is to get rid of or reduce as many outages or performance degradations as possible by eliminating some of the most common root causes. Regrettably, too many Internet Services organizations cut corners on their storage in a futile attempt to keep costs low. Far too often that approach ends up costing far more both in out-of-pocket costs, lost customers, lost reputation, and lost revenue. This paper will focus on the cure for common root causes directly attributed to the storage or file systems.


Whitepaper: Uptime @ Crunchtime: Valuing the Need for Data Speed at Critical Business Inflections

by BlueArcJun 01, 2008

This survey report represents a deep dive into the issues, drivers, challenges, imperatives, and best practices in maintaining system uptime in the midst of exploding demand for increased data performance and storage. The findings point to a keen recognition of the importance of data access and performance to the success of business and revenue growth. Respondents see the direct correlation between performance and their ability to speed time-to-market and time-to-revenue and avoid disastrous downtime scenarios. Yet, most are ill-prepared for periods of intense data flow that they know will come over the next year. Fifty-one percent have experienced productivity losses as a result of data overload at a critical business juncture, and a quarter of respondents relayed specific stories of how poor data performance has hurt their business. Participants identified new forces that are driving the data deluge, including web services, rich media files, e-mail and messaging, and compliance. These factors, combined with the increasing potential for periodic spikes in traffic, are causing the need for more capacity and performance going forward. Nearly two -thirds are planning to add to their network storage in the coming year, and half of these companies expect to need 50 percent or more additional storage in the next two years.
