Cloud storage has transformed the storage industry, however interoperability challenges that were overlooked during the initial stages of growth are now emerging as front and center issues. Join this Webcast to learn the major challenges that businesses leveraging services from multiple cloud providers or moving from one cloud provider to another face.
The SNIA Cloud Data Management Interface standard (CDMI) addresses these challenges by offering data interoperability between clouds. SNIA and Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) have partnered to create a SNIA CDMI Conformance Test Program to help cloud storage providers achieve CDMI conformance.
As interoperability becomes critical, end user companies should include the CDMI standard in their RFPs and demand conformance to CDMI from vendors.
Join us on July 19th to learn:
•Critical challenges that the cloud storage industry is facing
•Issues in a multi-cloud provider environment
•Addressing cloud storage interoperability challenges
•How the CDMI standard works
•Benefits of CDMI conformance testing
•Benefits for end user companies

There are many permutations of technologies, interconnects and application level approaches in play with solid state storage today. It is becoming increasingly difficult to reason clearly about which problems are best solved by various permutations of these. In this webcast Doug Voigt, chair of the SNIA NVM Programming model will outline key architectural principals that may allow us to think about the application of networked solid state technologies more systematically.

The movement away from electro-mechanical devices for primary storage to solid state technology continues. Flash technology has been immensely successful and continues to advance with greater density and less cost. It is also driving changes in the interfaces and protocols for storage from disk-based to memory-based. Additional solid state technology is entering the market and will create a hierarchy of different performance and cost storage. This presentation will discuss some of these changes and their potential impacts.

Why choose between your datacenter and the cloud? A hybrid cloud solution gives you both.
You have already invested in server products that are on premises. You believe that Cloud is the future and the power of the Cloud can open up countless opportunities for people to do more and achieve more. But how can you leverage the Cloud given your current infrastructure?
Join this webcast to learn Hybrid Cloud options as well as how to extract value from your existing investments by:
- Expanding your options without adding complexity
- Easily moving workloads from your datacenter
- Building hybrid applications that leverage both on-premises and cloud resources
- Taking advantage of storage, backup, and recovery options with increased efficiency and reduced cost.
As organizations move into the "3rd platform", they’ll need to discover new ways to support solutions like Private Cloud and Real-Time Analytics. The traditional disk-based storage they're depending on is not keeping up. Flash is transforming datacenter infrastructure performance, capacity and cost to address these challenges.
Join Chris Tsilipounidakis from Tegile as he examines the ways of transforming to a Flash datacenter to support various, mixed application workloads in an ever-changing ecosystem.
