Changing the Economics of Data

  Presented by HGST, a Western Digital brand

Western Digital will discuss how object storage systems are changing the economics of data. Object storage helps customers cost effectively scale storage while keeping up with data growth. In this session, you will learn how a component-to-system vertical innovation works in an object storage system architecture that is designed for petabyte-scale datasets, and facilitates storing data forever.

Leveraging the Latest Flash Technology to Meet the Needs of Your Entire Business

  Presented by Tegile, a Western Digital Brand

Business demands on IT infrastructure are increasing while the pace of change accelerates. In order to support business requirements, companies must understand the value that new storage technologies can provide. Storage technologies are emerging that provide benefits beyond those already delivered by Flash and SSDs. In order to evaluate and plan for these new technologies, it is important for companies to know how to evaluate their business needs in light of these emerging technologies. This session will cover the economic and performance benefits of non-volatile, memory-based storage technologies, along with new access methods known as NVMe.

Yes, You Can Get Burned When It’s Cloudy

  Presented by Check Point Software

With benefits like increased agility and improved efficiencies, it’s no surprise that businesses are rapidly migrating data and workloads to the cloud. When it comes to protecting sensitive data, extensive measures should be taken to keep information private and secure. However, that’s easier said than done, especially in the cloud. The growth and popularity of cloud solutions continues to drive more data beyond traditional IT security protections – into networks no longer owned, managed or controlled by corporate IT teams. While cloud providers deliver strong security controls to protect the cloud fabric, they have no knowledge of “normal” customer traffic and thus are unable to determine malicious content or activity from benign. Since the responsibility to protect a cloud environment is now shared between the customer and the cloud provider, that begs the question; what really happens when you spin up a new cloud service and connect it to the Internet?

Join this informative session to learn real-world examples of the risks associated with moving data and assets to the cloud, and hear guidance on how to leverage IT security to keep your cloud environment protected while staying aligned to the dynamic needs of your cloud network.

DataCenter & the Cloud, How Hybrid Cloud Changes Your Security Visibility

  Presented by Trend Micro

Security requirements do not go away when you move part of your data center to the cloud. Although most security controls can be easily applied to systems in the cloud, the weight of those controls and what constitutes an immediate concern versus a lower priority alert, can be different. We will discuss the requirement for advanced visibility to differentiate your cloud systems versus your internal data center with central visibility. With the dynamic nature of the cloud, and the flexibility of the modern data center, it is important to apply the same security controls but view the alerts differently depending on their origin.
