Digitisation, IoT and Big Data have catapulted us into the zettabyte era. This in turn is driving organisations to deploy robust storage strategies capable of supporting various applications in their data centers in order to keep up with the demands of the digital world.
These challenges are set to be explored on 14-18 March at DCD at CeBIT in hall 12, as top IT storage experts come together to debate how modern IT leaders can stay on top of today's data tsunami.
"Today's workloads in modern data centers increasingly require scale-out environments to run demanding enterprise applications. The hyper-scale compute, network and storage infrastructure requires a different approach to the architecture and a new way of consuming resources," says Farid Yavari , VP of Technology at FalconStor, who will be outlining at the event how virtualisation in compute, network and storage plays into solving the core challenges facing today's modern data centers.
Data security threats are increasingly becoming more complex and sophisticated in our hyperconnected, cloudified world.
With tougher data protection laws in Europe, organisations operating in Germany and Europe are increasingly under pressure to solve critical data storage and scalability challenges, whilst staying compliant and secure in hybrid IT environments. IT leaders need to put the right data in the right place at the right time, whilst ensuring top security of the data movement.
"Organisations today need a robust data center strategy which bridges the gap between on-premises infrastructure and off-premise cloud services," says Justin Hurst , Director of Technology at Nutanix, who will be addressing the dark clouds associated with security lapses at the event, and outlining the key challenges within the modern, hybrid-ready data center.
The 5-day conference agenda, situated on two open stages in the middle of the expo, will also include debates on flash arrays, hyperconvergence, open and software-defined storage innovations. Leading organisations such as EMC, Primary Data, Nimble Storage and Mellanox will be sharing their insights on how these are set to transform the infrastructures of the data center.
"The event is set to bring together top industry experts across storage, virtualisation, hyperconvergence and hybrid cloud solutions. The stages, situated in the middle of the exhibition area in Hall 12, represent a platform which connects IT visionaries and stakeholders from international and regional organisations, enabling them to discover new innovations and exchange best practices on the delivery of IT services in a hyper-connected, digital world," says George Rockett, CEO & Co-Founder of DatacenterDynamics.
