Speaker 1: Henry Gai, Director of Engineer, Honeycomb Data ( a storage Startup Company)


Topic: “Storage systems and cloud storage” The topic would focus on the storage systems from different perspectives such as consumers, enterprises, systems developers. What does cloud storage mean? What has happened prior to cloud storage? Why there is cloud storage? How is it related to storage virtualization? Is it consumer thing or enterprise thing? Who are the major players in the market? What do you think the trend would be for the storage systems?

Speaker 2: Weimin Pan, Chief Storage Architect in Inspur storage team


Topic: “New Storage for New Data Era” The IT world is changing faster than ever. Data center is disappearing. Infrastructure is everywhere. More and more applications are moving to cloud. More data is stored at Edge. Hybrid cloud is becoming a de facto standard of future IT infrastructure. How do these affect our storage? What kind of storage is best for this new world? We like to introduce Inspur “Unified” “Hyperscale” software defined storage and how it addresses unique cloud needs including elasticity, efficiency, scalability, and performance. Finally, we will discuss our vision of next generation cloud infrastructure and how Inspur composable storage products are well prepared for this trend.
