Storage intelligence for data growth: Collaborating on hardware and software for more flexible SDS

Partnered with AMD and Qumulo


This session will discuss the demand for scale-out file storage being generated by new enterprise applications, and examine how hardware and software suppliers are collaborating to build software defined storage (SDS) solutions that combine all-flash arrays, data management tools and multi-core, multi-thread CPUs supporting large complements of memory to deliver the I/O bandwidth and performance required.

It will cover:

  • The challenges organizations face in handling rapid data growth and the applications/workloads driving that data growth.
  • How the SDS approach is able to address those challenges compared to traditional storage architectures.
  • What customers should consider when selecting data management tools and CPU hardware platforms to support SDS applications.
  • The extent to which storage hardware can be optimized to address on-prem and hybrid cloud requirements.
  • The partnership between Supermicro, AMD and Qumolo from a hardware/software, strategy and sales channel perspective.
