The use of cloud object storage is ramping up sharply especially in the public cloud, where its simplicity can significantly reduce capital budgets and operating expenses. And while it makes good economic sense, enterprises are challenged with legacy applications that do not support standard protocols to move data to and from the cloud.
That’s why the SNIA Cloud Storage Initiative is hosting a live webcast on September 26th, “Cloud Object Storage and the Use of Gateways.”
Object storage is a secure, simple, scalable, and cost-effective means of managing the explosive growth of unstructured data enterprises generate every day. Enterprises have developed data strategies specific to the public cloud; improved data protection, long term archive, application development, DevOps, Data Science, and cognitive artificial intelligence to name a few.
However, these same organizations have legacy applications and infrastructure that are not object storage friendly, but use file protocols like NFS and SMB. Gateways enable SMB and NFS data transfers to be converted to Amazon’s S3 protocol while optimizing data with deduplication, providing QoS (quality of service), and efficiencies on the data path to the cloud.
This webcast will highlight the market trends toward the adoption of object storage and the use of gateways to execute a cloud strategy, the benefits of object storage when gateways are deployed, and the use cases that are best suited to leverage this solution.
You will learn:
- The benefits of object storage when gateways are deployed
- Primary use cases for using object storage and gateways in private, public or hybrid cloud
- How gateways can help achieve the goals of your cloud strategy without
retooling your on-premise infrastructure and applications
We plan to share some pearls of wisdom on the challenges organizations are facing with object storage in the cloud from a vendor-neutral, SNIA perspective. If you need a firm background on cloud object storage before September 26th, I encourage you to watch the SNIA Cloud on-demand webcast, “Cloud Object Storage 101.” It will provide you with a foundation to get even more out of this upcoming webcast.
I hope you will join us on September 26th. Register now to save your spot.
