We are seeing great adoption rate for our newest SFHA releases (6.0 & 6.0.1) and customer escalation data shows a marked improvement in quality over previous release (5.1SP1). In the last year (Nov 2011-Oct 2012), deployments of 5.1SP1 and 6.0/6.0.1 releases were equal in number whereas the customer escalations received on 6.0/6.0.1 stream were just 40% as compared to those received on 5.1SP1. And the good news doesn’t stop there! It is common that an escalation does not actually end up in product code changes and the trend continues, significantly smaller number of customer escalations on 6.0/6.0.1 stream resulted in product changes as compared to previous release.

This week Telefonica the owner of O2 have controversially announced they will start selling their O2 mobile customer data to third parties. Through Telefonica's Dynamic Insights business unit they are looking to drive revenue out of mining data to sell to third parties. They will take their phone network data and anonymise  and aggregate it. The product will be called Smart Steps and will be sold to public sector companies to enable them to measure compare and understand what factors influence the number of people visiting a location. The aim is so that retailers can then make informed decisions on things like locations and opening times for shops. The big question is around privacy in the use of their customer data. People reacted very strongly when Google started using customer data for their targeted advertising and this seems to be in the same vein. As a mobile phone user I am not sure how happy I am effectively having my movements traced even though I understand this...

Professor John Graham of Indiana University points out that “large amounts of resources are devoted to slight or speculative dangers while substantial and well-documented dangers remain unaddressed”.  It has been well established that people often too much weight is placed on risks of low probability.  Such is the dilemma of complexity within IT infrastructure.  We often talk about hackers, malware, floods, fires, earthquakes, and tornados; while the real crisis is happening right under our nose and it has well over 5,000 risk signatures.  This crisis is the complexity in the IT infrastructure and it is causing considerable losses for companies.

The likelihood that an organization will experience a catastrophic loss from an IT failure is far greater than any catastrophic disaster or "black swan" event.   IT failures are costing companies trillions of dollars every year; worldwide downtime is estimated at over $35 Billion...

It is hard to find an IT organization that is not experiencing a tremendous amount of pressure when it comes to managing their data growth and I/O performance requirements. This is especially true in virtual environments as virtual machines are easy to spin up but have an impact on the amount of storage capacity required and on performance characteristics. 

In the two-part blog series below, DCIG highlights how Netapp storage systems seamlessly work with Symantec products, specifically Dynamic Multi-Pathing (DMP) for VMware and Data Insight. Find out how these technologies can help you efficiently manage and control your structured and unstructured data and I/O performance in virtual environments.
