'General Session | Data at the Speed of Life'
The data explosion is not new. It started hundreds of years ago with the invention of the printing press, followed by real-time communication via radio, television and mobile phones and culminating with the World Wide Web. The challenge now is to provide information fast. There are billions of people with billions of devices generating exabytes of data around the world. No one wants to wait for the data they need, particularly businesses. Storage technology now focuses on performance more than it does on capacity. Virtualization, the Cloud and Big Data have combined to make speed all-important. The ability to access exploding data faster is crucial to businesses. Reports and analysis must be available to decision makers instantly. This session presents how WHIPTAIL moves data at the speed of life. Speaker Bio:
