Abstract: 

Storage administrators find themselves walking a line between meeting employees demands to use public cloud storage services, and their organizations need to store information on-premises for security, performance, cost and compliance reasons. However, as file sharing protocols like CIFS and NFS continue to loose their relevance, simply relying only a NAS-based environment creates inefficiencies that hurt productivity and the bottom line. IT wants to implement cloud storage it can purchase and own like NAS (NTAP) but that works like traditional public cloud storage services like Dropbox, Box and Google Drive. This talk will look at what's really happening with file protocols and explore the truth behind Silicon Valley's cloud dreams.
