Day 3 Keynote at Cloud Expo | Navigating Storage in a Cloudy Environment

HGST CTO Steven Campbell will address industry “pain points” that are keeping IT managers up at night and the solutions

Slide Deck: Navigating Storage in a Cloudy Environment

As the storage landscape continues to change, the industry must differentiate and mature its business beyond a standardized market by designing new platforms, features and products for specific customers and application workloads. New products and services in the cloud are fueling the growth for faster storage solutions and improvement in throughput and I/O performance with no latency. Economical and operational pressures in the data center to do more with less are driving the need for reduced total cost of ownership (TCO).

In his Day 3 Keynote at the 13th International Cloud Expo®, Steven Campbell, CTO at HGST, addresses industry "pain points" that are keeping IT managers up at night, and the solutions that will help them sleep better.
