Servers & Storage Solutions
What is storage server?
Storage Severs are used to store the data and applications of an organisation. They serve as store houses for data and applications repositories. The storage servers may be in situ or ex situ, i.e. they may be located inside the network premises of the organisation or may be maintained virtually in a cloud network. Some organisations also outsource their storage server requirements to external vendors, to reduce capital expenditures.
Companies are increasingly leveraging technology to address the explosion in demand created by virtualization and the shift toward the cloud. They are also turning to cutting-edge tools to overcome back- and front-office challenges such as meeting capacity needs, managing storage assets and complex infrastructure, fulfillment, forecasting, supply chain execution, monitoring customer loyalty, and leveraging big data and analytics.
In Memory Computing in its many forms refers to the use of direct memory instead of disks for the purpose of Storage and Computation. When data is stored and processed directly from RAM, it improves the application performance and also reduces the overhead involved in accessing the disk or the file system and also reduces the application footprint by generating cleaner code with direct access to RAM and less overheads on data processing.
