Nexenta to Discuss Software-Defined Storage Implementation and Landscape at Data Storage Innovation Conference

SANTA CLARA, Calif.—June 13, 2016— Nexenta (@Nexenta), the global leader in Open Source-driven Software-Defined Storage (OpenSDS), today announced that Field Chief Technology Officer (CTO), Michael Letschin, will speak at the Data Storage Innovation Conference on June 13-15 in San Mateo, Calif.

Michael will discuss how software-defined storage (SDS) means different things to different people. With solutions ranging from do-it-yourself to full-fledged, scale up and scale out architectures, the landscape can seem blurry and confusing. Michael will delve into what all these terms mean by mapping each style of SDS with a corresponding environment. These solutions include the use of virtual server based solutions, containers, bare metal installs and even hyper-converged. Regardless of vertical or company size, from branch offices through the largest enterprise, the right software-defined storage strategy can put you back in control and help you gain unmatched levels of flexibility, scalability, performance, and cost efficiency.

Owned and produced by SNIA, the Data Storage Innovation Conference (DSI) will cover a wide depth of topics which are of interest for IT professionals focused on data and storage. The conference is conducive for quality networking and education experience for IT departments, cloud service providers, solution architects, storage technology specialists, product and solution vendors, system integrators, and traditional channel communities.

The 3-day conference agenda features over 80 sessions spanning 20 themed topics. Topics include cloud storage, hyper-converged systems and infrastructure, data protection and security. The topics reflect the leading edge IT trends for next generation data center networked storage and filesystem solutions, the continued shift of enterprise computing to hybrid cloud, increased business driven big data analytics projects, and managing and optimizing these strategic IT investments.
