Unstructured data is like renegade data. It doesn't fit into a spreadsheet with rows and columns, i’s not in an ERP or CRM where you know what kind of data is in each cell, or how it relates to the rest of the data. So how do you create a sense of order among all this data chaos?
In this webinar you’ll learn about an alternative storage option to overspending on SAN and NAS solutions: object storage. You’ll leave this webinar knowing:
- What is unstructured data
- What are the storage challenges
- The pros/cons of different storage options (SAN,NAS,Object) for scale, performance, durability and cost.
There are many purposes for storing unstructured data; greater customer insight, exposing security threats, or archiving original media files. The challenge from a storage perspective, is how to create order from the chaos.

Hollywood has been innovating for over a hundred years, and storage has been along for the ride. With the onset of the digitization of film, moving from HD to 8K and eventually 16K film, file sizes are soaring! A film that once generated 112GB an hour may soon reach 86TB. Therefore storage has leaped to the forefront of film, becoming a critical factor in how movies are archived, streams are stored, and how much broadcasts and movies will cost.
Jeff Greenwald, Director Sales, M&E; Erik Weaver, Global Director of M&E; and Hal Woods, VP & CTO Data Center Systems of Western Digital as they discuss:
- The Age of Digitization & Future Trends in M&E

For the bulk of enterprise data, the answer for cost-effective data storage is not always high-performance primary storage, meant for real-time applications, but rather a more-than-adequate-performance afforded by object-based storage.
If you're involved with enterprise storage, even on the periphery, you've probably heard someone talk about Object Storage. If you feel you don't actually know what object storage is, what the buzz is all about and if, and where, it would be appropriate to deploy in your organization - you're not alone.
Join us to learn why object storage matters, the limitations it solves within the data center, why it's become so prevalent in the age of Big Data, and how customers are using object storage today.
