Storage Track

The skyrocketing increase in data, and the desire to better understand and use that data, has focused new attention on storage technologies with higher performance and capacity. Flash, cloud storage, software-defined storage, and converged and hyperconverged infrastructure offer new opportunities for businesses but also change the way organizations must plan for and manage storage. And businesses still must ensure they provide the critical services of backup, disaster recovery, and data protection in the most reliable way for the least cost possible. Interop's Storage track presents independent experts who will help IT organizations understand the new technologies available and evaluate how and why they might fit into their enterprise storage strategy.
