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

More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes how...

Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, will share examples from a wide range of industries – includin...

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files.
In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
