Designing a Storage Consolidation Strategy for Today, the Future and the Cloud

Presented by

Storage Switzerland and StorONE

About this talk

Most storage consolidation strategies fail because they attempt to consolidate to a single piece of storage hardware. To successfully consolidate storage, IT professionals need to look at consolidation strategies that worked. Server consolidation was VMware’s first use case. It was successful because instead of consolidating hardware, VMware consolidated the environment under a single hypervisor (ESXi) and console (vCenter) but still provided organizations with hardware flexibility. A successful storage consolidation strategy needs to follow a similar formula by providing a single software solution that controls a variety of storage hardware, but that software also has to extract maximum performance and value from each hardware platform on which it sits. Join Storage Switzerland and StorOne in which we discuss how to design a storage consolidation strategy for today, the future and the cloud. In this webinar learn: - The problems with a fragmented approach to storage - Why storage fragmentation promises to get worse because of AI, ML, and the Cloud - Why consolidating to a single storage system won’t work - Why hyperconverged architectures fall short - Why Software Defined Storage falls short - Why the organization needs a Storage Hypervisor
