Open Source in Storage: Is it Here to Stay? - Nithya Ruff, SanDisk

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

There was an important article in Forbes late last year asking the question “why has open source not taken over Storage”. The article went on to say that Open Source was more computer science than engineering that was needed to support mission critical storage. I take a deeper look at the transformation that is happening in storage and examine the question of the role of open source in storage. I look at the drivers driving growth and adoption of open source in storage as well as the state of open source supply. Cover OpenStack, Object Storage, and Cloud Storage where Open Source is here to stay and address how the collaboration between commercial companies and open source and the role that consortium has played to create a datacenter ready open source.
