Data Availability across Public, Private Clouds and Traditional Datacenters

Enterprise IT infrastructure is diverging. because of the growing business needs associated with cloud deployments using OpenStack, traditional virtualized datacenters, and various public clouds. Because of this, data availability across these platforms is becoming a growing challenge for IT architects and administrators. Essential to addressing this challenge is to build upon an open and highly scalable storage platform.

In this video, you will learn how a distributed, scale-out storage platform (such as GlusterFS) can be used for data availability across clouds built with OpenStack, public clouds (such as AWS), and traditional datacenters. You will also better understand the business and technical data availability challenges and will be presented with solution architectures and use cases.
