Nexenta to discuss the results of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) survey that revealed most central and local government organizations are overspending on legacy storage solutions
SANTA CLARA, Calif. and LONDON – December 8, 2014 – Nexenta (@Nexenta), the global leader in Software-Defined Storage (#softwaredefinedstorage) (SDS), today announced a live webinar to discuss why the public sector should understand better the benefits of SDS. The webinar comes after a Freedom of Information Act survey revealed that the public sector is still purchasing legacy storage, even though it costs on average 3x more per terabyte (TB) than the Software-Defined alternative. Hosted by BrightTalk as part of the Storage Networking Summit, the webinar will be held on Tuesday, December 9th at 08:30 – 09:30 AM PST (16:30 – 17:30 GMT).
Join Nick Baker, EMEA Systems Engineer at Nexenta, for a thought-provoking discussion on the benefits of SDS and how it could cut IT costs for public sector organizations. The discussion is aimed at central and local government IT decision makers and intended to provoke a wider discussion on Software-Defined Storage and how a future-proof data center can be achieved.
Nick Baker said, “Data center managers are under constant pressure to deliver high performance systems on tight budgets. The FOIA results really show that more needs to be done to educate public sector IT professionals on what they can do to reduce costs, and make the most of their limited funds. Not only must they have a scalable, fail-safe IT infrastructure, but also the freedom to control and minimize initial and operational expenditure.”
