ARCHITECTING STORAGE FOR OPENSTACK SUCCESS
Abdulrahman Alkhamees, Technical Marketing Manager, DDN Storage & Douglas O’Flaherty, Technical Marketing Manager, IBM present: Architecting Storage for OpenStack Success.
As you know, OpenStack isn’t a plug-and-play kind of cloud platform. With so many components to configure, it is OK to build your own for some things, but maybe not for others. When it comes to storage, the data you are preserving is too valuable to your organization to trust it to a home-built, commodity-based hardware solution operating unpredictable workloads with mixed IO and different applications hammering it.
If there’s one thing you should know about cloud workloads, it’s how unpredictable they can be. From dealing with mixed IO and different applications hammering your infrastructure—you need to be sure your deployment covers all of your bases. Join us for this live webinar to learn how DDN solutions powered by IBM® SpectrumScale™ can help you architect the ideal OpenStack storage deployment that will consolidate your environment, optimize performance and deliver multiple levels of service to your internal and external customers.
