Cloud Storage

Channel profile:

What it means, why it matters, how you get there. Sponsored by NetApp.

Like cloud computing, cloud storage can provide massive economies of scale. You get more IT capacity for less money because the infrastructure is being shared across multiple clients or business units. Additionally, sharing resources enables agility, which translates into faster time to market.

If you are an enterprise, cloud computing sounds great in theory, but you are probably thinking “how do I get started?”

In this channel, we will feature industry thought leaders as well as NetApp speakers to explore moving enterprises to the cloud. Hint: It’s not a sprint, it’s a journey.
