Crash Course: Optimization of Storage Virtualization

Crash Course: Optimization of Storage Virtualization

Take a crash course in "Optimization of Storage Virtualization," a seminar given by Michael Kestigian of Ingram Micro at the 2010 NY Tech Summit. To download a pdf of the slides for this presentation, see the Cloud Computing, Virtualization & Data Center track page.

Storage virtualization has been practiced in large scale data centers for nearly 20 years. With advances in storage media, software engineering, and service level delivery models, storage has taken on operational and management functions once found only in software applications. Maximizing any investment in storage means optimizing the use of these platforms to enhance information availability, data movement, and security. This seminar shares best practices in improving the return on storage virtualization investments.



We have come to NY Tech Summit for four years now and my team and I get a good variety of technical, business, and strategic sessions to complement our work objectives. I like that there is a balance of end users, consultants, and vendors to present and facilitate the sessions. The interaction is candid and engaging, but not a sales pitch. Being a regional conference helps, it is the right amount of time and location for a couple days to reenergize my team and refocus on our objectives. There seems to be quite a bit of peer discussion with a smaller conference, which I like.
