Every ten to fifteen years, the types of workloads servers host swiftly shift. This happened with the first single-mission mainframes and today, as disruptive technologies appear in the form of big data, cloud, mobility and security. When such a shift occurs, legacy servers rapidly become obsolete, dragging down enterprise productivity and agility. Fortunately, each new server shift also brings its own suite of enabling technologies, which deliver new economies of scale and entire new computational approaches. In this interview, long-time IT technologist Mel Beckman talks to HP Server CTO for ISS Americas Tim Golden about his take on the latest server shift, innovative enabling technologies such as software-defined everything, and the benefit of a unified management architecture. Tim discusses key new compute technologies such as HP Moonshot, HP BladeSystem, HP OneView and HP Apollo, as well as the superiority of open standards over proprietary architectures for scalable, cost-effect

This white paper demonstrates how to increase profitability by reducing the operating costs of backup and archiving using Riverbed Whitewater and Amazon Glacier cloud storage, instead of traditional tape backup methods. A convenient checklist summarizes operational cost categories used to calculate this ROI. These include ongoing monthly costs for media, labor, and offsite storage of backup data, and monthly costs for cloud storage of backup and archival data.

Information is becoming the currency of the 21st century, and organizations of all sizes are creating more information than ever before. Frequently, organizations struggle with how best to balance storage requirements with available budgets. The benefits of greater storage capacity are clear: better change management and roll-back, easier archival and discovery, reliable backup and recovery. But to continually grow on-site capacity requires unsustainable investment and introduces unnecessary risk. Prominent cloud service providers present an appealing alternative with their vast amounts of storage, offering low cost, high availability, and built-in redundancy. Riverbed’s Whitewater® family of cloud storage gateways is a drop-in replacement for existing tape- and diskbased backup targets, cuts backup costs 30-50% compared to tape and disk, and provides effective DR capability with minimal effort.

Storing data in the cloud using a Whitewater™ cloud storage gateway from Riverbed Technology overcomes what is becoming a serious challenge for IT departments: how to manage the vast, and ever-growing, amount of data that must be protected. Whitewater eliminates concerns about data security, data transmission speeds over the Internet, and data availability, while providing great flexibility and a favorable return on investment. Moving data to the cloud replaces the high costs of tape and disk storage systems with a pay-as-you-go cloud storage tier. This paper makes the business case for cloud storage, outlining where capital and operational costs can be eliminated or avoided by using the cloud for backup and archive storage.
