Nexenta to Present the Latest Trends in Open Software-Defined Storage Solutions for Container-Based Cloud Native Applications for Web-Scale Hybrid Clouds at Cloud Expo 2015 Silicon Valley

Santa Clara, Calif.—Nov. 4, 2015—Nexenta (@Nexenta), the global leader in Open Source-driven Software-Defined Storage (OpenSDS), today announced that Michael Letschin, Field Chief Technology Officer, has been selected to present at Cloud Expo 2015, Silicon Valley.

Letschin’s presentation titled “Containerized Storage for the Enterprise Cloud” will take place on Nov. 4 as part of the “Containers & Microservices” track and will examine the latest in “containerized" storage, offering the pros and cons of each.

Containers allow for compute processes to be isolated from each other and portable, but not all applications and solutions are run only in the compute layer—many require the use of some storage. Deployment of software-defined storage can be the first step in this evolution, providing portability and scalability with persistent storage. This could be in the form of storage that the containers connect to locally, or in a remote or cloud location, or it could be storage residing in the containers.

Cloud Expo is the world’s leading independent Cloud technology event, welcoming delegates and technology vendors from across the globe to experience and discuss the Cloud. The three-day conference will feature elite speakers, content and technology exhibition. As Cloud Computing drives increasing percentages of enterprise IT budgets, it becomes paramount for technology vendors to reach their customers and prospects as effectively as possible. Cloud Expo draws more than 7,500 of these customers and top prospects to the Santa Clara Convention Center in the heart of Silicon Valley. Attendees will learn about the growth of Cloud Computing, the emergence of Big Data/Analytics and the IoT, and how DevOps and WebRTC are impacting and accelerating this growth.

Additional details on the event can be found below.
