Computer Storage and how it will be changing your business


John Matze, CEO of BridgeSTOR


Computer Storage has always been an integral part of every corporation and storage has always been taken for granted.  However, with new security concerns and ever changing government regulations the storage of critical data has become challenging.   We will be looking at how storage has been changing over the years, how security is now becoming a common place and what new storage technologies are available to solve disaster recover issues.  Backup of data has always been a problem for system administrators; we will be looking at how backup is changing and how backup costs can be dramatically reduced and in some cases eliminated.  Primary storage is also changing. How will solid state disks and flash arrays be leveraged for corporate data?  The talk will include the Pros and Cons of storing of Virtual Machines and Virtual Desktops.  How will cloud storage affect your business. Should you use Cloud Storage and if so what are the drawbacks of storing your corporate assets in the cloud.  How do you access your data when it’s in the cloud.  How do you secure the data in the cloud so the government and hackers cannot view or steal your assets.  Computer Storage has always been a stable part of every business and now more than ever corporate officers need to be careful of what is being  purchased and how you teams will be able to recover lost data or data required for government audits.
