Nexenta to Bring Open Source-Driven Software-Defined Storage Focus to the Software-Defined Infrastructure Summit

Nexenta (@Nexenta) the global leader in Open Source-Driven Software-Defined Storage (OpenSDS) solutions, today announced that it will be speaking at the Software-Defined Infrastructure Summit, Santa Clara. Held at the Santa Clara Convention Center, California (December 1-3), the summit will focus on infrastructure for Big Data and cloud computing and will bring together the industry leading experts and professionals who will showcase the latest innovation.

As the world continues to become more data-driven due to Big Data and cloud computing, the traditional infrastructure relied upon to support such demanding processes has been a constraint. Unable to provide the necessary scalability and consistent performance, the industry needs data center technology to evolve in order to support today’s mass data activities. Software-Defined technology is the next evolutionary step and summit attendees will discover first-hand how Nexenta, with its award winning OpenSDS solutions, is leading the way.

During the summit, Nexenta will be participating and leading the following panel discussions and seminars.

Title:

Title:

Creating an Innovation Machine with SDI

When:

Thursday, December 3, 11:30 – 12:00 PST

Speaker:

Sam Greenblatt, Nexenta Advisory Board, Technologist in Residence, Nano Global

Abstract:

An obvious problem with today’s data center infrastructures is that change is both difficult and dangerous. It is difficult because it generally involves many low-level, highly detailed structures and depends on both hardware and software. It is dangerous because legacy applications on which enterprises rely for their ordinary daily activities may not run in the new infrastructure – and who knows exactly why? SDI offers a much better basis for change. It not only makes change simpler, but it can also leave the original architecture readily available in case of problems. All you do is restore the original parameters in software or, even better, keep a copy of that architecture in “virtual” form. So you end up with an innovation machine – you can innovate all you want in software while keeping the original base architecture for use as needed or when changes have unexpected side effects.
 
 

Title:

Vision for the Software-Defined Data Center

When:

Thursday, December 3, 12:00 – 12:30 PST

Speaker:

Tarkan Maner, Chairman & CEO, Nexenta

Abstract:

Join Tarkan Maner as he discusses the future for the software-defined data center, software-defined storage, and software-defined infrastructure. Everything must change in the era of Big Data, cloud computing, and the storage explosion – and software-defined everything is clearly the solution.
