Storage Firsts

EqualLogic PS400E: First SAN array available featuring Seagate 750GB SATA disk drives. With 14 drives in the enclosure, the PS400E can hold up to 10.5TB of capacity. It also features Version 3.0 of EqualLogic's firmware, whose "SAN within a SAN" technology allows storage pools to be created on the basis of capacity and performance characteristics for use by different apps. NetEffect NE010x: First Ethernet Channel Adapter (ECA) to fully implement the iWARP memory data transfer standard, including the Remote Direct Memory Access, Direct Data Placement and Marker-based Protocol-data-unit Aligned protocol stacks. In tests, the NE010x adapter showed end-to-end latency of less than 10 microseconds, a performance record for iWARP implementations, the company claims. The NEO10x ECA is designed for networking, storage and clustering applications that require a low-latency Ethernet fabric.

  • Tricky backup for SharePoint

  • CDP: Look before you leap

    Some pundits have postulated that continuous data protection (CDP) will replace backup. But is that just new technology hyperbole or is CDP a must-have technology?

  • Backup-to-disk performance tuning

    Disk-based backup can lower costs, reduce complexity and add scalability. But to achieve top performance, you'll need to do lots of benchmarking and watch for poorly configured production storage.

Columns in this issue

  • Backup best practices are always evolving

    Some new advances in backup, such as virtual tape libraries, represent evolutionary enhancements to the traditional backup process, while others like continuous data protection and single-instance storage are potentially far more transformational.
