SAN Performance Monitoring

A Storage Area Network (SAN) is a specialized, high-speed network that provides block-level network access to storage. SANs are typically composed of hosts, switches, storage elements, and storage devices that are interconnected using a variety of technologies, topologies, and protocols. Each computer on the network can access storage on the SAN as if they are local disks connected directly to the computer.

Object Storage vs Block Storage - What's the difference?

At Taloflow we recently launched a way for companies migrating from AWS/GCP/Azure to 3rd party object storage providers like Storj to receive an objective TCO analysis of all the switching and storing costs associated. But what exactly is object storage - and how does it compare to block storage? For both, we will cover the technical description, benefits, and application use-cases.

Boost Productivity Through Optimized Azure Storage Management

In the fast-growing Azure world, the significant need for organisations would be productivity. Any enterprise that invests in a tool for their serverless needs aims for optimised management, which boosts productivity. This article will explain how to increase productivity while having a critical resource like Azure Storage, which is essential for organisations with their business developed in Azure. For an effective performance for such substantial resources, optimised management is mandatory.

Monitoring Ceph health with Prometheus

Monitoring Ceph with Prometheus is straightforward since Ceph already exposes an endpoint with all of its metrics for Prometheus. In this article, we will put it all together to help you start monitoring your Ceph storage cluster and guide you through all the important metrics. Ceph offers a great solution for object-based storage to manage large amounts of data even on economical hardware. Besides, the Ceph Foundation is organized as a direct fund under the Linux Foundation.

2021: The year of Cortex for IoT?

My Grafana Labs colleague RichiH recently talked about why IoT and time series databases work so well together. It just so happens that we have a highly scalable time series database on hand. Let’s talk about that. My name is Goutham, and I am a maintainer for Cortex. I have been working on it for nearly three years out of the four-and-a-half years the project has existed. Cortex is built to serve as a scalable, long-term store for Prometheus.

Will Azure Blob Storage Rule the Unstructured Data Storage Space?

2020 was indeed challenging for Kovai.co still had great learning! One of them is what I am sharing with the community through this blog. For enterprises like us, worldwide work from anywhere became the new reality. We had to move towards a cloud-native world where secure data storage and effective remote management of IT infrastructure were of supreme importance.

Do Edge Applications Need Stateful Storage?

Kubernetes applications are increasingly making their way to the edge and embedded computing. Storage will quickly follow as the applications that rely on this edge infrastructure become more advanced and naturally carry more state. According to a study by McKinsey and Company, a “connected car” processes up to 25GB of data per hour.

What is a NAS server and what is it for?

Storage devices for networking, or NAS servers are in good health. And no wonder, since we have increasingly more data to save and more need to use them from different locations. Traditionally, NAS servers have been considered a cheaper (and also more limited) alternative to other types of servers. However, NAS servers can also be used to carry out different tasks. But before we get into that, how about we find out more about what a NAS server is?
