Cold Storage and Scalable Cloud Storage
Data explosion, shrinking budgets, pay-as-you-use trends have resulted in evolution of Storage as a Service. This session covers two aspects of cloud storage: 1) Changing needs for cold storage and how those are catered through capabilities of modern storage in cloud environments like AWS, Azure, OpenStack, etc. with guidelines on what consumers should consider while designing solution using these capabilities. 2) Challenges for primary storage in cloud like guaranteed performance and business continuity for mission critical applications without extra costs. We will deep dive on a new age Software Defined Storage (SDS) architecture that provides enterprise class storage capabilities like predictable storage performance, zero impact of backups and other data services to primary applications, instant fault recovery and rapid virtual machine provisioning.
