Driving ROI with Cloud Storage Consolidation Seminars

Join me in a series of in-person seminars driving ROI with cloud storage consolidation for unstructured file data.

Various Data Infrastructure options from on-prem to edge to cloud and beyond

These initial seminars are being held at Amazon Web Services (AWS) locations April 30 in New York City, May 1 in Chicago and May 2 in Houston Amazon. At each of these three cities, I will be joined by experts from NetApp, Talon and AWS as we look at issues, trends and what can be done today (including hands on demos) driving ROI with cloud storage consolidation for unstructured file data.

What The Seminars Are About

These seminars look at how remove cost and complexity while boosting productivity for distributed sites with unstructured data and NAS file servers. The seminars look at making informed decisions balancing technical considerations with a business return on investment (ROI) model, along with return on innovation (the other ROI) from boosting productivity. It’s not about simply cutting costs that can create chaos or compromise elsewhere, it’s about removing complexity and cost while boosting productivity with smart cloud storage consolidation for unstructured file data.

Distributed File Server Cloud Storage Consolidation ROI Economic Comparison

During these seminars I will discuss various industry and customer trends, challenges as well as solutions, particular for environments with distributed file servers for unstructured file data. As part of my discussion, we will look at both technical, as well as ROI business based model for distributed file server cloud storage consolidation based on the Server StorageIO white paper report titled Cloud File Data Storage Consolidation and Economic Comparison Model (Free PDF download here).

What this all means

Making informed decisions for data infrastructure resources including cloud storage consolidation and distributed file servers involves technical, application workload as well as business economic analysis. Which of the three (technical, application workload, financial) is more important for enabling a business benefit will depend on your perspective, as well as area of focus. However, all the above need to be considered in the balance as part of making an informed data infrastructure resource decision. That is where a discussion about a business financial ROI model (pro forma if you prefer) comes into play as part of cloud storage consolidation, including for distributed file server of unstructured file data.

I look forward to meeting with attendees and hope to see you at the events April 30th in New York City, May 1 in Chicago, and Houston May 2nd as we discuss driving ROI with cloud storage consolidation at these seminars.

Ok, nuff said, for now.
