CUPERTINO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CloudByte, the first provider of secure, multi-application storage for enterprise-grade clouds, announced today that Felix Xavier, the company’s founder, will speak at the first SNIA Data Storage Innovation (DSI) conference, in Santa Clara, California, April 22-24, 2014. Xavier’s session titled “Forming Storage Grids Using iSCSI” is part of the “Storage Plumbing” track and will take place on Wednesday, April 23, 2014 at 3:25 p.m. local time.
The session will cover the new storage requirement brought by the cloud today: each of the storage nodes needs to talk to each other and bring the hot data near the application across datacenters. The communication between storage nodes should be standard-based to form a global cloud. Xavier will explain how storage nodes can communicate with each other on the iSCSI standard protocol to form a storage grid and serve the same set of data across multiple datacenters to application instances.
The Data Storage Innovation Conference (DSI) is owned and produced by the Storage Networking Industry Association (SNIA). DSI is targeted at IT decision-makers, technology implementers, and those expected to influence, implement and support data storage in production environments. DSI identifies the latest IT and storage technology innovations, examines the challenges and opportunities IT organizations most frequently face, and offers practical solutions from leading vendors, consultants and innovative IT end-users. DSI’s agenda offers vendor-neutral SNIA Tutorials, end-user case studies, presentations from Storage-focused analysts and technologists, technical updates and roadmaps from industry associations, and product talks from vendors (both well-known and startups).
CloudByte is also announcing that earlier this month, it was chosen as a finalist for the DCS awards in the “Datacenter ICT Storage Software” category. This followed the recent recognition that the company received as a winner of the 2013-2014 Cloud Awards Program in the Best Cloud Infrastructure category.
