Fighting the Hidden Costs of Data Storage
Next to performance and scalability, cost efficiency is one of the top three reasons most companies cite as their motivations for acquiring storage technology. Businesses are struggling to control the storage costs, and to reduce OPEX costs for administrative staff, infrastructure and data management, and environmental and energy. Every storage vendor, it seems, including most of the Software-defined Storage purveyors, are promising ROIs that require nothing short of a suspension of disbelief.
In this presentation, Jon Toigo of the Data Management Institute digs out the root causes of high storage costs and sketches out a prescription for addressing them. He is joined by Ibrahim “Ibby” Rahmani of DataCore Software, who will address the specific cost efficiency advantages that are being realized by customers of Software-defined Storage.
