Overview

A majority of an organization’s information is unstructured, and data growth is exploding. Despite best efforts and significant investments, IT lacks critical insights, such as who owns the data and how it’s being used. This leads to significant challenges in managing an organization’s data governance objectives – protecting important business data, achieving regulatory compliance and driving down costs and improving efficiency to manage this rapid data growth.

What is Data Insight?

Symantec Data Insight helps organizations improve data governance through data owner identification and visibility into data usage and access permissions. With these insights into the data, organizations are able to manage data growth in order to reduce costs, protect the data from security risks and manage compliance.

I was fortunate enough during my many years in the military to have been assigned to fixed-base communications units, meaning it was only on rare occasions that I had to choke down those infamous MRE (meal, ready to eat) rations that the US military hands out to personnel deployed in the field. For those unfamiliar with them, an MRE is a big packet containing a full meal for one, typically with items like corned beef hash, freeze-dried fruit, crackers & jelly, and maybe an oatmeal cookie.
 
When MREs are handed out at meal time, everyone takes a look at what their particular packet contains and the inevitable trading begins: "Anyone wanna trade with me for my corned beef hash?" or "Hey! Did anybody get chicken ala king? I'll give you my tuna with noodles!" In the end, though, everyone just put Tabasco sauce on everything to make it edible, so it didn't matter what they got in the first place.

Solid State drives have been gaining the markets interest for the past few years. Walking Around the Storage Expo this year in Earls Court it did occur to me that this was a technology Much Thin Provisioning that was here to stay. Increasingly the variety of implementations available from true SSD arrays  to Memory Accelerators is more and more mainstream.

From the customers I speak with people are also less hung up on the technical details And are focusing more on the impact to the applications themselves. This can only mean One thing – that the IT industry is finally accepting SSD’s in all their glory are the future of storage. SSD’s  not only open the door to massive IO performance but also highlight technologies like Storage Tiering Which SSD is really an enabler for not to mention VDI which seems a sweet spot for the technology. What is clear is Solid State technologies are here to stay, what implementation becomes the market leader... Only...

The Thailand capital Bangkok has seen the worst floods in its history. This event while unfortunate also highlights some of the problems data centers are facing and potentially making them worse. It is also a wakeup call to data center managers to rethink their storage strategies and leverage software tools such as Storage Foundation to optimize storage.

One of the constants in the data center is storage growth and the resulting spending on storage. While hard drive prices have been falling over the years, the sheer growth of storage has meant that storage costs have been ballooning out of control. The rate of growth of storage has far exceeded the rate of drop of storage prices leading to the overall growth of storage costs. 

But, all of this is about to change for the worse. The Thai floods have affected potentially 40% of the world hard disk supply creating shortages and resuling in price increases. This means that in all probability hard drive costs are going...

As the January 2011 issue of CIO Digest noted, a recent Gartner survey revealed data growth was the most cited IT concern for 2011 by large enterprises. One option to reduce disk storage growth is Thin Provisioning. Thin Provisioning allocates storage as needed, yet stays completely transparent to applications. In effect, it finally brings the advantages of just-in-time inventory, pioneered by Japanese Manufacturers in the 1980s, to data centers.

But are enterprises adopting Thin Provisioning?

Figure 1 shows data from the Symantec Operations Readiness Tools website.

Takeaways

  • Lots of Storage is already Thin Capable
  • Increasingly, Thin Provisioning is actually created and deployed (LUNs). It is not just an available but unused...
