The Future of Enterprise Storage: Software-Defined, Storage-as-a-Service
For decades, large array vendors dominated the storage industry. However, over time, the industry began moving to more flexible virtualized and eventually cloud-based resources. Software Defined Infrastructures have enabled an entirely new set of options for pay-as-you-go IT resources. Industry analysts show a clear and consistent transition away from older CapEx storage to OpEx-based Storage-as-a-Service.
One of the most critical elements that companies wrestle with when moving from traditional storage to an as-a-service model is whether they will sacrifice functionality for economic and flexibility benefits. Zadara Storage, by working closely with Intel, has developed “Enterprise” Storage-as-a-Service, providing IT professionals with the same level of enterprise-grade storage that they have used for years, but with the flexibility and economic benefits of cloud-based solutions. The storage is available “anywhere” – in the cloud, on-premise or in hybrid configurations.
Further, by leveraging the fundamental elements of Software Defined Infrastructures and cloud-based technology, Zadara can offer greater business continuity, disaster recovery, security and other advanced storage features than previously offered by the traditional vendors.

Enterprises need to be agile and innovative. But what IT departments need to provide to the business and what developers require to create innovative and agile solutions can pose some challenges.
The role of IT has fundamentally changed from “supporting the business” and “fixing IT problems” to delivering transformative business outcomes. IT is now at the core of the business. The explosion of data and the desire to use it to drive innovation and decision making has placed new demands on IT, requiring more agility, performance, security and reliability.
In this webinar we will discuss how building a hybrid cloud using VMware Cloud Foundation, Pivotal Container Services and Pivotal Cloud Foundry solves those challenges while saving enterprises money, improving developer and customer satisfaction, and eliminating shadow IT.
As software developers move to micro-service and cloud aware application frameworks, IT and DevOps professionals are having a harder time untying the complexity of managing multiple environments across multiple clouds with the number of artifacts increasing exponentially. Just like Alexander the Great, we will look at techniques and principles that cut through the Gordian knot that is being tied by the invisible hands of complexity.
