Title:                     Storage on Your Terms: Deep Dive into Software-Defined Storage Technologies and Use Cases
When:                  November 2nd and 3rd 2016 from 13:15 to 13:45
Where:                Room 05: Cloud Computing  

Details:                Datacenter storage has exploded over recent years and expanded from legacy scale-up monoliths dominating the landscape to include new options for scale-up and scale-out storage. Each solution provides benefits and limitations for performance and flexibility. That being said, the single greatest advancement in storage is the drive towards software-defined - a solution flexible enough to support you regardless of your architecture preference.

In this presentation, we will discuss the pros and cons of scale-up and scale-out while highlighting the advantages that software-defined provides over the legacy storage market. These advantages range from cost savings to hardware flexibility to performance options. Most notably, they all provide a platform to design for today's solutions and enable you to migrate to the new paradigms
