What's Object Got To Do With It?


Join our panel of cloud and storage experts as they talk about how object storage has evolved, different approaches (hardware vs software, open source, public vs private cloud), and how the economics of cloud and object storage are changing how enterprises manage storage.

Discussion will center around:

  • Why has object storage grown in the past years?
  • Even with this new approach, what are some of the downfalls or problems companies have run into?
  • What are the different hardware vs software approaches that enterprises are taking to solve these problems?
  • Object storage has grown because of cloud. How else has private, hybrid and public cloud dynamics influenced the direction of object storage?
