  2. 2. Abstract<br />The demand for storage has increased, placing significant stress on &quot;in house&quot; storage infrastructures and costly overcapacity build-outs<br />Factoring in our current economic state and the pressures of power, space, capital expenditures, global performance, and availability issues, companies are faced with an exploding challenges and costs<br />Cloud storage platforms enable enterprises to cut costs and focus on more important aspects of business, but with many competitors in the marketplace it&apos;s hard for businesses to decide which option is best<br />This session will teach attendees about the uses of cloud storage within enterprise levels of deployment and shed some light on the current solutions available today<br />2<br />

  26. 26. Security & Reliability<br />No System is Perfect (including yours)<br />What to look for<br />Security audit (by a respected firm or customer)<br />SAS 70 (especially Type 2)<br />Customizable SLA (with remedies)<br />Transparency<br />Encryption (but who holds the keys?)<br />
  27. 27. Encryption for Cloud Storage<br />Where should encryption live?<br />(andwho holds the keys?)<br />
  28. 28. Performance<br />Cloud Storage is not for all Data<br />But it’s for a lot of Data<br />Cloud-appropriate data:<br />File-based, unstructured<br />Non mission-critical<br />Value in keeping it accessible<br />Requirement to be outside the firewall<br />Multi-user, multi-site<br />Rarely written, frequently read<br />
  29. 29. Ingestion<br />Loading initial data can derail even the best cloud use cases<br />Bandwidth is sized to daily requirements<br />Initial data loading often requires an alternate path <br />Can you ship tapes? Disk arrays?<br />Who manages? Who pays?<br />
  30. 30. Implementation<br />APIs Aren’t “Simple” to Integrate<br />What to look for<br />Robust integrated functionality in applications<br />Solutions & integration services<br />Enterprise support<br />Standard storage protocol support<br />

  32. 32. Economics<br />TCO is More Than Just $/GB<br />What to look at<br />Infrastructure costs<br />Connectivity/network costs<br />Security fees<br />Hardware utilization<br />System complexity<br />System management <br />
  33. 33. Barriers are Down: What Next?<br />Start with cloud proof-of-concept<br />Match dataset with security & bandwidth needs<br />Select a provider based on TCO<br />Perform test & measure outcomes<br />Secure multi-year agreements<br />
