CW ASEAN: Hyper-convergence offers simple yet scalable storage

In this month’s CW ASEAN, we take a look at how TAL Apparel has reaped significant savings in storage and server resources by switching to hyper-converged systems. We will also explore the key drivers for the development of hyper-converged solutions and how they will transform the way applications are delivered.

Also in this issue: 

From backup to data management: Beyond data backup, extracting more metadata to improve business processes and data management will become more important, says a senior Veritas executive 

Veritas expands partnership with Google: Enterprises can now deploy NetBackup and Backup Exec on the Google Cloud Platform, among other capabilities

Private cloud: Orchestration, storage and containers: We look at the key requirements and components of private cloud – including the use of container platforms – and the impact of private cloud on storage in the datacenter.

    Getting past the hyper-convergence hype: While hyper-converged systems may imply different architectures based on the context, conceptually it refers to integrated technologies – servers and storage – that are managed as a single unit using software. We take a look at the key drivers for the development of hyper-converged solutions and how they will transform the way applications are delivered.
