About this talk
Cloud storage providers and anyone developing enterprise data centers have an unprecedented array of new technologies to choose from to build their next-generation environments. These new technologies present more potential permutations to work with, enabling even greater opportunities for optimization.
Adding additional virtualization and acceleration technologies presents more flexibility and options to build a custom configuration, but doing so increases the management challenges exponentially. With the proliferation of different technologies and multiple vendors, standards-based management is more critical than ever to successfully develop, integrate, deploy, and manage systems and storage at scale.
This session will provide an overview of:
- The latest technologies in storage for virtualization, acceleration, and fabrics.
- The organizations delivering standards-based management.
- A discussion of open-source projects delivering value-add using standards-based management.
