Look before you Lock-In: Cloud Storage Pitfalls to Avoid
One of the chief cloud challenges is unexpected spending; often, it’s easier for cloud spending to get out of control than if everything were on-premises. People know how much data they have. That’s easy. But they have no idea how much egress they’re going to need, or how many “operations” they are going to use. Additional unpredictable fees from many cloud storage providers make forecasting costs next to impossible.
This session explores the challenges that many organizations face in future-proofing their data storage as use-cases are becoming increasingly complex and expensive.
We will discuss:
· The little understood charges that drive up cloud storage costs
· How organizations can find themselves unexpectedly “locked-in”, and what can be done about it
· How the new generation of cloud object storage addresses the challenges of managing explosive growth in data
· Why best-of-breed cloud services are driving the trend toward “multi-cloud”
