About this talk

Digital business initiatives, AI, core to edge deployment models, security considerations and privacy laws are causing users to gradually shift their focus from building and managing data centers, to using them to deliver a competitive advantage to their organizations. Creating a self-managing storage infrastructure shifts the measurement of product attractiveness away from traditional metrics like reliability, availability, performance and scale, to a storage system’s ability to autonomically meet service level agreements (SLAs); seamlessly move data between on-premises storage systems and the cloud; and make upgrades and refreshes properties of the infrastructure. In other words, they want an intelligent, living infrastructure that makes data migrations a thing of the past. Since all storage vendors use the same components, competitive advantage will derive from differences in vendor business models, target markets and architectural innovation, and be measured by ease-of-use, ecosystem breadth, cloud integration, post-sales support effectiveness and cost. This presentation will help users to optimize their future storage infrastructure visions by exploring: - How NVMe-oF, AIOPs and hybrid cloud are reshaping infrastructure designs - The pros and cons of scale-up, scale-out, 3-tier, and HCI architectures - The strengths and weaknesses of hybrid vs AFA arrays
