Distributed scale-out file systems have been broadly used for a variety of different enterprise workloads. As IT organizations go through digital transformation and employ a variety of new applications, storage infrastructure requirements are changing. The lion's share of data that will be captured, stored, protected, and analyzed going forward will be unstructured, and scale-out file systems provide a good platform for many of these workloads. But there has been a lot of confusion in the market around these platforms, how they compete with other types of scale-out file systems (i.e., clustered scale-up and parallel scale-out), and how to evaluate which features are needed for which workloads. This document takes a detailed look at the functionality of distributed scale-out file system platforms, matching features and capabilities across different platforms with workload requirements. Customers considering a scale-out file system will be able to better select an unstructured storage solution that meets their needs after reading this document.</P><P>"Enterprise customers that do not differentiate between different scale-out file system architectures often run into unexpected limitations and challenges with file system workloads," said Eric Burgener, research vice president, Infrastructure Systems, Platforms and Technologies Group, IDC. "IT managers tasked with buying file system solutions need to understand the different capabilities of the three different scale-out file system options since that will help them select the best platform for their own needs."</P> IDC Perspective Tue, 14 Sep 2021 04:00:00 GMT Eric Burgener HPE FY 3Q21 Results: An Earnings Beat as the Outlook for Digital Infrastructure Continues to Improve <P>On September 2, 2021, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) announced 3Q21 financial results. The company reported that third quarter total net revenue in constant currency increased 3% sequentially and 1% YOY to $6.9 billion. After accelerating their revenue growth last quarter, this represented sustained growth for the company as revenues improved for all business segments except HPE's venerable compute business in the quarter. During the quarter, the company generated non-GAAP operating income of $673 million which was up 25% YOY but down 2% sequentially as some costs including the pre-purchase of inventory to future proof the business from further supply chain constraints were borne by the business. And of course, HPE continues to work towards making all its offerings available via the company’s GreenLake as-a-service model by 2022. In Q3, HPE saw GreenLake land its 1,100<SUP>th</SUP> customer and their annualized revenue run-rate (ARR) grew 33% YOY to $705 million.</P> IDC Link Sun, 12 Sep 2021 04:00:00 GMT Crawford Del Prete, Matthew Eastwood Operations in the Next Normal: Agile, Intelligent, and Sustainable <P>This IDC Web Conference analyzes why it is important today to reassess the role of operations to drive business value in every sector and to act on lessons learned from the crisis.

Better use of data, analytics, artificial intelligence, and machine learning is critical to complete this journey and can help organizations ensure they have the platform they need to deal with future business uncertainty, become more innovative and data driven, and maximize business opportunities in a digital-first world.</P><P>"For many organizations, the need to adapt to a new business environment requires investment in business analytics and an accelerated migration to the cloud. One high-level trend is that organizations taking a strategic approach to adopting cloud-based business analytics are outperforming those companies that are not doing so in key metrics. The COVID-19 crisis has shown that improving operational efficiency through data, analytics, AI, and machine learning is more effective during market turmoil than traditional cost-cutting measures." — Senior Research Analyst Wiktor Markiewicz, IDC Europe.</P> Market Perspective Thu, 02 Sep 2021 04:00:00 GMT Wiktor Markiewicz, Philip Carnelley
