Abstract: 

It is increasingly common to combine as-a-service and as-a-product consumption models for elements of an organization's data infrastructure, including applications; development platforms; databases; and networking, processing, and storage resources. Some refer to this as ""hybrid"" architecture.

Using technical (not marketing) language, and without naming specific vendors or products, this presentation covers some improved storage capabilities becoming available in service and product offerings, and some scenarios for integrating these kinds of offerings with other data infrastructure services and products.

Learning Objectives

  • Considerations for choosing storage services and/or products for specific use cases
  • Economics of service and product consumption models for storage resources
  • Reducing cost and operational complexity by consolidating storage capabilities into a smaller number of platforms
