'General Session | Cloud Storage: Myths and Realities'
Large-scale cloud computing has the unique properties of massive amounts of data twinned with huge aggregate performance requirements. Putting all the data on low-cost storage results in unacceptable performance, but putting all the data on high-performance storage results in unacceptable costs. This session explores the requirements for cloud storage and how it can best be implemented with a combination of hardware, software and process.

Presented By:
