Making Global Cloud Storage Consolidation a Reality

Enterprises worldwide are looking for ways to leverage the cloud as a smarter infrastructure approach. While pushing server-based apps to the cloud has proven beneficial and possible, one workload has eluded cloud architects around the globe - using the cloud to replace the millions of on-prem file servers that users pound on daily. With the escalating cost of ownership for on-prem storage infrastructure (backup, availability, capacity, and audit/compliance management) and the associate risk (data loss, breach, compliance issues), finding ways to leverage the cloud for his has become a holy grail.

A number of technologies have become available in cloud-friendly formats that can now address this workload, allowing dozens or even hundreds of distributed file servers to be consolidated into a single, cloud-resident footprint. These include the latest distributed network file systems, storage-optimized network protocols, intelligent caching, and global locking schemes that when used together can deliver savings of up to 70% and a far more secure and manageable environment.

The objective of this session will be to provide the audience with fundamental understanding of the technologies involved in a cloud storage consolidation project, the basic implementation steps, and an understanding of how to shape the ROI from such a project to present to their teams.
