Ms. Greyzdorf will lead off this highly educational session by sharing her market insights and usage trends. This will be followed by an overview from ParaScale’s CEO, Sajai Krishnan, about real world use cases from ParaScale customers. This webinar is especially useful for service providers looking to provide a public cloud storage service, for an enterprise looking to build their own private storage cloud, and for a value added reseller looking to expand their portfolio of offerings in a very tight buying environment.
“The emergence of cloud storage promises real economies of scale, high availability and on-demand capacity yet the term has caused some confusion in the marketplace,” said Ms. Greyzdorf. “Specifically, cloud storage is often confused with existing storage technologies like storage virtualization, grid storage and utility storage. Additionally, there are some concerns with the security and SLAs associated with cloud storage. The reality is that companies of all sizes could benefit from cloud storage but before embarking on a cloud storage strategy, it is important to understand what are the use cases and where cloud storage is not a good fit. This webinar will attempt to clarify the confusion and outline use cases for cloud storage.”
