'Software-Defined Everything' Includes Storage and Data

Published on

Is your data stuck where it started? Join us and industry analyst Jason Bloomberg this Tuesday, July 26 to discover how you can automate data mobility across your software-defined datacenter.

If you’re like most enterprises, you’ve likely added the benefits of flash and cloud storage to your traditional infrastructure. This storage diversity delivers more choice in meeting performance, protection and cost requirements to support the different data needs of applications, but without a way to converge data across your different storage investments, it’s nearly impossible to align the right data to the right storage at the right time. Data virtualization is a software-defined solution that finally unites different storage systems into a global pool of resources so that even data can be part of your SDDC architecture from on-premise and into the cloud.

In Tuesday’s webinar, Jason will provide insight on how the principle of Software-Defined Everything supports the business agility needs of today’s enterprises. He will also discuss the software-defined approach to championing agility by automatically aligning storage resources to evolving data demands through data virtualization and orchestration, even as business needs change.

Following Jason’s talk, Primary Data Senior Systems Engineer Brett Arnott will cover how data orchestration ensures that data is automatically aligned to the right storage resource to deliver breakthrough agility and efficiency. Attendees will learn how data virtualization and orchestration helps enterprises not only develop a roadmap for their transition to software-defined storage and data, but also execute the move to automated, Objective-driven storage efficiency.
