Every year the cost per unit of storage capacity gets a little cheaper, but this decline in cost is counter-balanced by an increased demand for capacity. As such, our annual storage spend is more or less the same, and we wish it to be lower! This session reviews a variety of strategies for lowering your storage spend. Topics include: software defined storage based on commodity hardware, novel methods of compression and deduplication, and advances in life cycle management and dynamic tiering. We also cover the overall trend toward the commoditization of enterprise storage and discuss how to strike the right balance of risk and reward when adopting new storage technologies.
