Panel Details

What: "Has Object Storage Arrived? What will it take for Object Storage to go Mainstream?" 

Object storage has been touted for some time now as a possible savior to the rapidly rising tide of Big Data. The general features and benefits read well, but widespread adoption does not seem to have followed, or has it? Is there a misperception in the market about object storage utilization, or is it truly struggling to find its place? This panel discussion will cover tough questions put directly to the object storage gurus about their plans and concerns going forward with their technologies, perceived implementation challenges, best use cases/applications and go-to-market plans.
