Cloud Storage: A Cheap, Fast, Standardized Utility

Register for this session ▸ Here

The second generation of cloud storage is cheap, fast, and standards-based.  It's becoming simply a utility, much like electricity or bandwidth.  There are already commercial super-fast cloud storage offerings that are 80% cheaper than first generation cloud storage like Amazon S3.  We will look at the rapidly changing economics of cloud storage vs. on-premises storage and LTO tape. We'll look at the new technologies that are driving down price and increasing speeds.

Speaker Bio:

Enterprises are striving to become digital businesses for differentiated innovation and customer-centricity. Traditionally, they focused on digitizing processes and paper workflow. To be a disruptor and compete against new players, they need to gain insight into business data and innovate at scale. Cloud and cognitive technologies can help them leverage hidden data in SAP/ERP systems to fuel their businesses to accelerate digital transformation success.
Most organizations are awash today in data and IT systems, yet they're still struggling mightily to use these invaluable assets to meet the rising demand for new digital solutions and customer experiences that drive innovation and growth. What's lacking are potent and effective ways to rapidly combine together on-premises IT and the numerous commercial clouds that the average organization has in place today into effective new business solutions.
Concerns about security, downtime and latency, budgets, and general unfamiliarity with cloud technologies continue to create hesitation for many organizations that truly need to be developing a cloud strategy.
