Storage: Traditional Hardware Refresh Cycles

Attempting to keep pace with never-ending demands for storage space in the enterprise is a daunting task. While the DAS and NAS technologies of yesterday have been largely replaced by SANs hosting virtualized infrastructure, one constant remains: the use of the traditional hardware refresh cycle as a means to address organizational storage needs.

Any IT professional responsible for storage planning will be familiar with this exercise. With each hardware refresh cycle, IT planners ask themselves…

  • What is our current storage footprint?
  • What is our expected rate of change over the life of the storage platform under consideration?
  • How well-suited is the storage platform for expansion over its planned life?

Until recently this approach may have sufficed. Enter big-data.

Big-data is acting as the disruptor to hardware refresh cycles, and more specifically in the arena of data storage.

In response, IT professionals and organizations alike need a more dynamically responsive approach to storage provisioning.

Some organizations have turned to cloud storage architecture as a means to address this challenge head on. With its elastic nature and scale-out capability – public, private, and/or hybrid cloud storage solutions are likely to be the cornerstone of organizational IT infrastructure.

Surveillance versus Breach

GCN published an article on June 3, 2013 regarding the possible data breach of Customs and Border Protection (CBP) systems operated by third-parties for clearances. The information used to obtain clearances is not only personal identifiable information (PII), but also re-tells the past ten or more years of history of an individual. So the potential compromise of this information is a serious issue.

Now add the recent scandals regarding surveillance by the NSA and other government agencies adds to the concern. This is more than a privacy issue, but one of the capability to maintain data secure. DHS is meant to provide the “cybersecurity” component of the government in conjunction with the DoD, but if DHS and the DoD have issues with maintaining the security of their respective systems, what will the potential breach be with the new surveillance information. While granted, the information of the phone calls from the various telecoms is currently not maintaining the call content itself, the associated metadata could expose even greater risk to individuals than is being expressed. Most phones maintain GPS and cell tower information with a call. Add the additional cell phone number and owner information, it is now possible to track the patterns of the individual in addition to the various calls.

While the potential privacy issues around surveillance has its place, the ability for the government to protect the data is also equally important.

40 Zettabytes with Meta Tags Please….

In an article by Computerworld, analysts are predicting that in the next 8 years digital data will exceed 40 zettabytes (1,099,511,627,776 gigabytes (GB) in a zettabyte) or about 5,200 GB per person on earth.  Emerging countries/markets will likely become the dominant data generators rising from 36% to 62%.   However, the research suggests that this data will mainly be produced by computers not humans.

More data, more storage, faster hardware, larger/faster networks, tighter security, “real” service-oriented architectures, “bring your own device” solutions, converged infrastructures and overall efficiencies needed for customers.  Meta tags will be the critical element in farming and correlating this data.  And, by 2020, while cloud spending is projected to rise from 5-40%, the cost of storage will likely plummet.     Interesting times ahead….
