  • Does Flash deliver on its promise in 2015?
  • Why and where will object storage matter?

This discussion, aimed at C-Level executives and senior IT decision makers, will offer real world insight into trending topics like OpenSDx and SDS, specifically how customers and CIOs are implementing this technology in their organizations.

“More than half of Storage Professionals we’ve surveyed plan to move to a Software-Defined Data Center.  That move reflects the fact that the industry gets the value of storage being delivered through software-level innovation,” shared Simon Robinson, VP Storage, 451 Research. “We see Nexenta as one of the leaders in the software-only SDS space.”

"In 2015, with the steep rise of deployments around social, mobile, and the Internet of Everything innovation, we will see huge focus on Big Data-centric applications and web-scale infrastructures - within public and private cloud investments," said Tarkan Maner, Chairman and CEO of Nexenta.  "As enterprises look for simpler, more secure, more scalable, and less expensive intelligent infrastructures, they will require vendors to collaborate more openly and innovate faster via Software-Defined Everything technologies, what we call at Nexenta as OpenSDx, from the apps to the infrastructure, from the end users to data centers, and everything in between."
