TechTarget Names DataGravity Discovery Series Best of Show and New Technology Winner at VMworld 2014

|August 27, 2014 10:50 AM EDT
today announced that its first product, the DataGravity Discovery
Series, was selected as the Best of Show award winner, as well as the
Gold award winner in the New Technology category at TechTarget’s Best of
VMworld 2014 awards. On SearchServerVirtualization.com, the judges
explain that they chose the DataGravity technology because of its
“unique approach that uses a passive engine to do real-time scanning to
deal with compliance questions and data usage.”
Launched last week, the DataGravity Discovery Series is the industry’s
first ever data-aware storage platform that tracks data access and
analyzes data as it is stored to provide greater visibility, insight and
value from an organization’s information assets. The DataGravity
Discovery Series delivers storage, data protection, data governance,
search and discovery, powered by an enterprise-grade hardware platform
and patent-pending software architecture that enables midmarket
companies to glean new insights and make data-driven business decisions.
The unified storage platform offers insights at the same richness of
intelligence, regardless of whether the data is block or file. It
supports NFS, SMB and iSCSI LUNs, with the additional capability to
manage virtual machines natively. The DataGravity software architecture
lets IT teams, as well as security, compliance and line-of-business
users unlock the value in their data by automatically analyzing
information as it is ingested, without impacting production operations.
The result is active insight that will fundamentally change what the
market expects from primary storage and transform how professionals in
IT, marketing, compliance, human resources, sales and other departments
“Organizations have the right to know information about their stored
data, which is what we are enabling with the DataGravity Discovery
Series. We are giving visibility into the data and taking storage from a
back-office container to a front-office asset,” said Paula Long, CEO and
co-founder of DataGravity. “These awards confirm that the industry
understands the future of storage is about much more than the data
container and is really about the insights the data holds.”
The Best of VMworld 2014 awards winners were selected from more than 175
entries by an independent team of experts and editors from TechTarget's

innovation, value, performance, reliability and ease of use.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.

My team embarked on building a data lake for our sales and marketing data to better understand customer journeys. This required building a hybrid data pipeline to connect our cloud CRM with the new Hadoop Data Lake. One challenge is that IT was not in a position to provide support until we proved value and marketing did not have the experience, so we embarked on the journey ourselves within the product marketing team for our line of business within Progress.

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...

In recent years, containers have taken the world by storm. Companies of all sizes and industries have realized the massive benefits of containers, such as unprecedented mobility, higher hardware utilization, and increased flexibility and agility; however, many containers today are non-persistent. Containers without persistence miss out on many benefits, and in many cases simply pass the responsibility of persistence onto other infrastructure, adding additional complexity.
