Opening Keynote: Software Defined Storage and Role of Storage in Big Data Revolution- Zynga & Nexenta

New pathways for data storage come our way all the time. In this webinar, you will learn about software-defined storage and how it can help your company maintain data effectively, securely, and cost effectively.

Discover how software-defined storage (SDS) allows organizations and IT staff to control how information from the data center is deployed, provisioned, and managed through software, enabling industry standard hardware to be used, and allowing for a broader range of cloud-computing services at a much lower cost.

Also discover why VMware spent $1.26 billion on acquiring Nicera and what this tells us about the  possibilities and advantages of software-defined storage.

And then learn how Nexenta is changing the storage landscape with its flagship software-only platform, NexentaStor, which delivers high-performance, ultra-scalable, cloud- and virtualization-optimized storage solutions.
