3PAR helps Exact systems for its Utility SaaS storage

Traditional Storage: No Match for Growing Business Demands
Thousands of organizations worldwide, including The Home Depot, Papa John's, Cold Stone Creamery and Careerbuilder.com, rely on the ExactTarget platform for their integrated email marketing needs. With nearly a billion outgoing emails each month, ExactTarget required a high performance, cost-effective storage environment that could keep pace, and deliver tiered storage to control the company's increasing quantity of data. With a growing customer base, the new environment would also need to address both demanding IOPS and latency requirements.

Innovative, Autonomic Approach to Storage Provisioning and Optimization
After considering storage platforms and conducting a rigorous performance evaluation, ExactTarget chose highly virtualized, clustered and modular 3PAR Utility Storage. ExactTarget found that 3PAR uniquely delivered two to four times the performance of similarly configured systems being considered from traditional vendors. The 3PAR InServ achieved these performance results with the use of cost-effective 10K drives, without requiring manual load balancing across storage controllers or disks, and without any RAID group planning or configuration effort.

Cloud Security: Eliminate humans from the "Information Supply Chain on the Web"

My upcoming article, part - 3 data center predictions for 2009, has a slideshot talking about the transition from the current age to the cloud computing age to eventually the ideation age- the age where you will have clouds that will emote but they will have no internal employees.

Biggest management disasters occur because internal folks are making a mess of the playground.

Om's blog is carrying an article about Cloud security and it is rather direct but also makes a lot of sense:

I don’t believe that clouds themselves will cause the security breaches and data theft they anticipate; in many ways, clouds will result in better security. Here’s why: Fewer humans –Most computer breaches are the result of human error; only 20-40 percent stem from technical malfunctions. Cloud operators that want to be profitable take humans out of the loop whenever possible.Better tools – Clouds can afford high-end data protection and security monitoring tools, as well as the experts to run them. I trust…
