It’s time to demand more of your data. The days of buying more boxes, expanding data center footprints and allocating endless resources to support massive data growth are over. Data today needs to be accessible no matter where it resides, and the conversation needs to be about data access, not data management.
This transformation is happening now. Enterprises are finally ready to use the cloud for primary storage. Combined with the expansion of global data centers as cloud hubs and the availability of fast, dedicated networks to transcend this connected world, these opportunities are cementing the foundation for tomorrow’s data centers.
Join us on April 14 as we launch a monthly Twitter chat series on this topic, #StorageDebate. #StorageDebate is a place to share perspectives, questions and arguments about the road ahead for enterprise storage.
Our first guest will be Storage Switzerland founder and industry expert, George Crump. George will tackle the question burning for so many enterprises today: “Is cloud adoption a sure thing?” With so many roadblocks and challenges facing companies looking to transform, George will explore what’s working, what’s not and how we can all take the right steps forward to make cloud scale and performance a reality for enterprise storage. George will be joined by cloud and storage experts and ClearSky founders, Ellen Rubin and Laz Vekiarides, for a lively discussion.
