How Tiered Storage Enables On-Demand Cloud Computing

SESSION: Storage I

EVENT TYPE: Exhibitor Forum

TIME: 11:30AM - 12:00PM

Presenter(s):Ronald Bianchini, Jr.

ROOM:WSCC 613/614

The cloud, whether public, private or a hybrid of both, is attractive to business because it promises to lower costs and provide increased flexibility. However, the cloud has been impractical for primary storage access and mission critical applications because the distance across the WAN between cloud providers and remote clients creates unacceptable latency when using traditional storage devices. Dynamic storage tiering changes all of this. Join Ronald Bianchini, Jr., CEO and co-founder of Avere Systems, as he discusses how a new, tiered storage infrastructure can harness the cloud for the most demanding applications. In this session, you will analyze the impact of latency on storage performance and understand why traditional solutions that optimize bandwidth often fall short in cloud scenarios; and examine real-life case studies such as remote office to datacenter, data center to data center and data center to public cloud, including examples of architecture design and cost/benefit analyses.
