Description

Unstructured data is growing exponentially and the reasons for that are well known. However, how an enterprise should manage this data and harness its value is far from well known. NAS has been around for almost two decades, but traditional architectures are straining under the sheer weight of this data. This webcast will look at what clustered file storage is and how it is different from traditional file storage. We will discuss how it can contain the data tsunami. Then we will look at various factors that make one type of clustered file storage stand out and another one just be an incremental improvement over traditional storage.
