Hundreds of definitions from swarms of providers have created confusion and devalued the cloud storage landscape. Titled "Cloud Storage - Cutting Through the Hype," Mr. Bahar's 30 minute presentation will skip to the real questions: Who is using cloud storage and why? This session will detail cloud storage customer examples and the benefits achieved by leveraging this technology. No boring definitions or hand waving technology pitches, instead real-world use cases complete with lessons learned and best practices.

"Today everyone is selling cloud solutions and everything from a simple API to an archive platform is being called a 'cloud platform,'" said Bahar. "As an organization seeking to embrace cloud computing the challenge is separating the hype from reality. One way to do this is to look to peer examples. Then, start small and grow with demand."
