The event will take place at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, California on Wednesday, October 23 from 10:00 to 11:00 am.
Object storage provides a way for many users and applications to share the same physical locations and their contents. This reduces storage needs, avoids duplication and inconsistency, and allows for a wide variety of combinations. Object storage is highly scalable, simple, cheap, and easily distributed. It is particularly well-suited to data that lacks a defined structure, such as documents, photographs, video recordings, audio soundtracks, images, or drawings. As demonstrated by the over 1 trillion objects currently stored in Amazon S3, the world’s largest object storage system (and growing at over 1 billion objects per day), the flexibility offered by object storage’s simplicity and generality makes it capable of handling a massive number of objects. With the advent of massively scalable processing over exponentially growing collections of data, enterprises and data centers will find object storage more valuable than ever before. It will find particular uses for data that seldom or ever changes, such as historical records, backups, archives, and photo, video, and image repositories.
The OpenStorage Summit (held along with the Open Server Summit) is the only event focused entirely on the $50 billion server market. And it is the first event to deal with “Bringing Servers into the Cloud Computing Era”. It will cover such key emerging topics as virtualization, cloud computing, green design and energy saving methods, solid state drives, power and cooling, data center strategies, server roadmaps, and application acceleration.
