The OpenStorage Summit focuses on innovation developments in open-source storage-related solutions. The Summit is open to:
The best and brightest minds in the world of OpenStorage solutions, both from the vendor and end user communities, come together to collaborate and share ideas, deployment best practices, and network. The summit provides the opportunity to explore everything from storage architecture innovations, open source cloud computing platforms, technical solutions, performance enhancement, and the business opportunities in this transformative OpenStorage revolution.
Key Drivers for OpenStorage
OpenStorage refers to storage systems built with an open architecture, using industry-standard hardware and open-source software. The rapid adoption of cloud computing, big data analytics and information archiving, combined with regulatory pressure for long-term data retention, have increased the demand for high-capacity alternatives to traditional storage.
These requirements put enormous pressure on the capacity, pricing, and performance of traditional storage architectures. There has been a resurgence of interest in open-source software solutions as a means to achieve scalability in capacity and performance at a lower total cost of ownership (TCO). Open-source software and scale-out file system storage, in addressing these needs, has made itself relevant in today’s enterprises.
