Fred Oh's presentation for SNW Spring, Monday 4/2/12, 1:00–1:45PM
Unstructured data growth is in an explosive state, and has no signs of slowing down. Costs continue to rise along with new regulations mandating longer data retention. Moreover, disparate silos, multivendor storage assets and less than optimal use of existing assets have all contributed to ‘accidental architectures.’ And while they can be key drivers for organizations to explore incremental, innovative solutions to their data challenges, they may provide only short-term gain. Join us for this session as we outline the business benefits of a truly unified, integrated platform to manage all block, file and object data that allows enterprises can make the most out of their storage resources. We explore the benefits of an integrated approach to multiprotocol file sharing, intelligent file tiering, federated search and active archiving; how to simplify and reduce the need for backup without the risk of losing availability; and the economic benefits of an integrated architecture approach that leads to lowering TCSO by 35% or more.
