Industry analysts predict that 2017 will be the year that more unstructured data is retained on scale-out cloud storage than classic storage. Scale, efficiency, and multi-site are the drivers. Learn how to take advantage of an on-premises storage cloud built with Cisco’s S Series servers and SwiftStack software, the same software used in public cloud storage offerings. Many on-premises applications are already compatible with a storage cloud built with these building blocks.
This session will share real user insights on:

-Easily incorporating hybrid-cloud storage into your environment for existing applications
-Leveraging the multi-site capabilities of a single cloud storage namespace
-Enhancing the scale of storage while also lowering TCO using standard building blocks

Environments that are benefiting the most from this new approach to storage include Web/SaaS, Entertainment, and Scientific Computing, though every organization can look to apply this approach to their datacenter evolution plans. Please join guest experts from SwiftStack as well as Alan Stearn, Technical Solutions Architect at Cisco, who will share analysis of how organizations are using scale-out cloud storage to grow their IT capabilities while also lowering costs.

“We believe that enterprises now and for the foreseeable future will live in a hybrid cloud world, where business value should determine where data lives, when it moves and how it behaves,” said Steve Duplessie, founder and senior analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group. “IT creates and controls the policies for corporate data that places data on-premises and/or in the public cloud, based on the criteria that keeps their customers happy: cost, performance, security, access and availability.” - Read the full press release here:

Mario Blandini, vice president of marketing, SwiftStack, stated that the end game for SDS is that storage goes away as its own distinct segment of the IT infrastructure market.

“Storage came about when applications expanded beyond mainframe compute to distributed x86 computing,” said Blandini. “With SDS and hybrid cloud, storage is no longer defined as a big box full of hard drives, it is the management of data existing across private and public data centers, all in a single namespace.”
