Building Resilient, Software-Defined Storage Infrastructure at The Edge

Presented by

Craig Chadwell, VP Product at SoftIron

About this talk

Practical Recommendations for Planning, Implementation & Success Two major shifts within the world of enterprise data storage are converging, leading organizations to radically rethink how they plan for - and implement - a resilient, future proofed data storage strategy. First, the rise of “edge infrastructure”, and second, the dawning realisation that the public cloud might not be fulfilling everything it once promised. In this talk, SoftIron shines a spotlight on the “power struggle” between public cloud vendors and their customers and how this is impacting the demands and developments on edge infrastructure. Craig Chadwell, VP Product at SoftIron, explains the unique characteristics of today’s ‘edge environment’, and offers practical recommendations for planning and implementing resilient, software-defined storage infrastructure at the edge.
