Tips & Tricks


August Definition of the Month

IP Storage: IP storage is a general term for using the Internet Protocol in a storage area network, usually run over gigabit Ethernet. IP storage presents an alternative to a Fibre Channel fabric that constitutes the modern SAN. Proponents of IP-based storage claim that it offers a number of benefits over the FC alternative, and will promote the wide-spread adoption of SANs that was predicted when they were first introduced. Although SANs have been around since the mid 1990s, they haven't enjoyed the market acceptance that developers expected, especially in the Small to Medium Business marketplace. Fibre Channel issues, including expense, complexity, and integration/interoperability issues are frequently cited as the cause.

Decisions CIOs Shouldn't Make Alone

The nature of being a chief information officer is one of change. In an earlier Tip and Trick, we discussed the evolution of the data center manager or CIO, adding businessperson expertise to existing technowizard credentials. As a peer to the other departments in the organization — indeed, as a good manager — you will take a certain amount of initiative and make many, many independent decisions. But there are some IT-intensive decisions that you want to bring other players into, if only by reason of potential capital expenditures or impacts on the business.

Is De-duplication for you?

One of the most talked-about areas of data protection is "data de-duplication." Data de-duplication is an emerging technology that might well play a major role in a broad range of applications for protecting and retaining data, including backup and recovery, long term archiving, continuous data protection, and secure retention for compliance. It also offers advantages for applications that benefit from efficient data transmission, including remote replication and wide-area network optimization.

SAN coming to SMB

It is a measure of the strength of small to medium business buying power that the technologies once considered enterprise-only are making their way into smaller companies. One of those technologies is the storage area network or SAN. SAN technology is the most effective form of storage pooling, and has been the envy of the proverbial SMB's eye, until they saw the price tag.

July Definition of the Month

Backup. Backups are defined as the transactions made at a given interval that creates a point-in-time image or copy of data (and in many cases the OS and applications suites) and holds it in the infrastructure, either on disk or tape drives.

What's in Your Tape Media?

Did you ever wonder about the tape media when you were trying to determine your drive performance? If you are like most, your tape media is MP — metal particle. Metal particle tape uses substrate material, the basefilm, which is coated with a durable and flexible Polyurethane-type paint containing, among other things, suspended metal particles. The particles consist of needle-shaped iron, or ferric cores, which have been processed to enhance their magnetic capabilities and chemical stability.

Backup Is Not Archiving

It is commonplace for many outside of the professional handlers of storage to consider backup and archiving the same thing. Little could be further from the truth. They are distinct technology practices with sharply differing requirements.

The Best of Both Worlds?

The installed base of tape libraries has inspired Imation to embed 2.5-inch SATA hard drives into an LTO Ultrium tape shell. The Odyssey cartridge, containing a 2.5-inch SATA hard drive and the Odyssey docking station, fits into any 3.5-inch drive bay, creating a solution that enables efficient and low-cost backup. The product can be used with any drag-and-drop Windows-based system, including the soon-to-be-released Microsoft Vista as well as most storage management software packages offered by independent software providers.
