     Date & Time: Tuesday, October 13 at 2:10 p.m. PT

     About this session:
     All panel experts of this session have implemented some form of
     primary storage capacity and will explain how the technology is used
     differently from technology used for backup storage. In addition, the
     panelists will address concerns of users when deciding whether or not
     to consider primary storage optimization.

     Presentation Title: Framing the Main Storage Debate
     Speaker: Jered Floyd
     Date & Time: Tuesday, October 13, 2009 at 3:05 p.m. PT

     About this session:
     Storing static data on primary storage, whether it's mainframe disk,
     tier 1 SAN, or NAS, represents one of the most costly and inefficient
     uses of IT resources, yet not only are the levels of data being stored
     this way not dropping at a substantial rate, they are actually growing
     in many cases. Recent studies have shown that enterprise storage costs
     continue to rise as organizations grapple with how to migrate data
     efficiently and safely from older systems to a more cost effective
     model. Exacerbating the issue, particularly in the mainframe scenario,
     is the dwindling number of qualified engineers.  As many industries
     look to phase out their mainframe disk and other tier 1 storage
     platforms that they have held on to longer than usual due to the
     economic climate, they are running against the clock to complete these
     migrations before their hardware reaches its end of life, not to
     mention the dwindling resources available to perform the actual
     migrations.
