  • Cutting Through the Cloud and Software-Defined Storage Hype Mar 11 2015 5:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Technology gurus have inundated IT organizations with new acronyms, abbreviations, buzzwords, and catch phrases in an attempt to capture mindshare and stay current with industry evolution. Most recently, it's all about cloud, convergence, and software-defined storage (SDS). But what does it all really mean, and why should enterprise organizations care?

    Storage architectures have continued to evolve, thanks in part to the maturity seen in cloud and other technologies in the SDS space. SDS solutions, for example, allow IT entities to create a solution with somewhat commodity hardware to address nearly uncontrollable data growth. The challenges for enterprise organizations, across most verticals, is scaling storage to accommodate this rapid growth and address retention needs, while at the same time addressing performance bottlenecks, power utilization, data center space constraints, and, most critically, data availability and accessibility. Of course, cost is a big factor as well with today’s dwindling IT budgets.

    How can enterprises know what is right for their environments? What differentiates a converged infrastructure from a hyper-converged infrastructure?

    Join Seagate Chief Technology Evangelist David A. Chapa and Director, Global Alliance Partners Michael K. Connolly for a live webinar that will help you cut through the hype and learn more about:

    - Seagate's perspective on the market indicators
    - Top peer challenges, according to leading industry research
    - The difference between converged and hyper-converged infrastructures
    - Best and worst use case for SDS
