About this talk

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.
