Abstract: 

The emphasis in the design and implementation of cloud architectures is often on the virtualization and network aspects, and storage is often not considered in the overall design until late (often too late) in the implementation. This session will be an overview on developing & delivering a cloud architecture with a focus on getting the storage aspects correctly specified and defined. A commercial implementation of such a system will be presented as a case study on the benefits of treating storage as an important part of the process of delivering a practical cloud architecture.
