Scalability Challenges For Cloud Storage


The presentation will delve into limitations of current technologies as hyperscale cloud solution including (1) SAN and NAS, (2) SSD and (3) software defined storage (SDS). Each technological limitation shows the need for new thinking and creates new opportunities. What is needed are fundamentally new approaches for scale-out storage resource aggregation in the cloud.
