Gridstore, a provider of scale-out NAS solutions, has announced that analyst firm DCIG has recognized Gridstore as a leading solution for scale-out NAS for SMBs. The DCIG report, titled “A Practical Scale-out Storage Solution for Today Minus Scale-out’s Costs and Complexity,” emphasizes the benefits of Gridstore’s scale-out NAS approach for the organizations that need the flexibility that a scale-out architecture provides while reducing management complexity and risk at a fraction of the cost of traditional controller and clustered NAS offerings.
According to the DCIG report, server virtualization is creating a new set of demands for ease and simplicity in managing and scaling storage capacity and performance that goes well beyond the bounds of what controller-based and clustered storage systems can provide. These traditional scale-out storage systems are not optimized to cost-effectively deliver the storage capacity and performance that virtualized environments require.

While the benefits derived from greater business agility are significant, costs are also an important factor to consider.
This is especially true in today’s extremely competitive business environment and difficult economic times.
This article, the last in a series of three articles on how data virtualization delivers business agility, focuses on resource agility.
In Parts 1 and 2, business decision agility and time-to-solution agility were addressed.
In the recently published Data Virtualization: Going Beyond Traditional Data Integration to Achieve Business Agility, resource agility was identified as the third key element in an enterprise’s business agility strategy, along with business decision agility and time-to-solution agility.
Data virtualization directly enables greater resource agility through superior developer productivity, lower infrastructure costs and better optimization of data integration solutions.
These factors combine to provide significant cost savings that can be applied flexibly to fund additional data integration activities and/or other business and IT projects.

It is entertaining to read all that is currently being written about DevOps. Having been a developer, a development manager, an operations manager, and even a CTO, I can attest to the fact that the “throw it over the wall” syndrome is real, and causes real problems for everyone involved. That is about where my agreement with the current round of pundits ends. The thing is that they talk like there is some fundamental technological reason why DevOps isn’t happening. That’s just not true. For those a little behind in your jargon, DevOps is making operations prevalent in the decisions of your development organization.
We’ll take the discussion a little bit at a time. We have virtualization. We have astoundingly good virtualization from VMWare, Microsoft, RedHat, et al. So many of the concerns about development and ops go away immediately. “Developers test in the environment their tools run in!’” is oft-heard in the DevOps conversations. But that’s just not an issue. They can run three different OS’s to test with, and as many browsers in each OS as you want to support – all with a single set of hardware. So make testing in your operational environment mandatory. In fact, for most tools, they’re developing on whatever OS is being targeted anyway, because there are subtle differences – or no support at all – in other OSs.
