'Shared Nothing' architecture is not a new concept that is going to phase out the SAN based architecture. It’s just a precursor to the latter.

Here is a brief look at the evolution of the two architectures that would make this point obvious…

Storage Area Network

'Storage Area Network' is a dedicated network for providing access of block storage devices to a set of servers or hosts. Let’s see how this has evolved over the years...

Initially storage devices came bundled with the hosts and this posed challenges when the host had to undergo a hardware maintenance shutdown in order to add more storage. Also the number of storage devices that can be connected to the internal SCSI bus was limited. This brought in the concept of direct attached storage where the host and the storage were separate physical boxes connected by a cable (initially parallel SCSI and then Fibre Channel). The storage box was...

Windows 8 has been released... OK, so I'm not actually that excited about Windows 8 (I'm a Mac user and I like my screen sharp and finger print free).  But as usual it was accompanied by a new version of Microsoft's server OS - 2012 and that does excite me.
 
Yes 2012 has got a load of new functionality, but these 'cool new features' aren't the interesting bits, it's what's been in there for a while that's really exciting.  There are a few components in Windows 2012 that have hit version 3.0 and that's a big deal, one of those is Hyper-V.  What this really means is Microsoft's hypervisor platform has passed a milestone in maturity.  Typically when Microsoft brings a new technology to market it takes a few versions of fine tuning to really hit the mark.  During this time, some early adopters will use it for production workloads, but the majority of large enterprises will confine it to...

As Fujian Mobile in China rapidly grew from 2 million customers in 2003 to nearly 30 million today, the need for a secure, highly available, and efficient billing system became ever more important. Previous solutions suffered, becoming increasingly slow. It was simply unacceptable. After evaluating its options, Fujian selected Veritas Storage Foundation High Availability for Windows from Symantec. Consequently, Fujian witnessed unprecedented success with the new solution. Results include up to eightfold faster processing, the ability to re-assign 15 IT staff to more valuable tasks, a 50 percent reduction in storage needed for billing and reclaiming more than 10 terabytes. To learn more about how Symantec’s cluster file storage system drastically improved Fujian Mobile’s billing system, follow this link http://bit.ly/V29aY8

The benefits of data center consolidation are apparent; they save millions of dollars and improve the overall quality of service.  It is easy to see that too many data centers adds unnecessary costs, it chips away at manageability, increases complexity and contributes to a number of operating inefficiencies.  Realizing the economic benefits of data center consolidation can be elusive, the challenge is to circumvent the potential pitfalls that complicated the transformation process.

Data center consolidations involve much more than just moving servers or data from one location into another.  Data centers have become a conglomeration of disparate technologies running on combination of virtual platforms, physical platforms, and clustered platforms that operate an assortment of systems and access a range of data-tiers that are stored on multiple arrays from a whole host of hardware vendors.  

In addition to the...
