Paper Title: Delivering the Data Factory

Paper Abstract: Unstructured data has emerged as the central challenge and opportunity to all kinds of business initiatives in every industry, and it is expected that unstructured data capacity will double or even triple over the next few years. The data is more massive in scale, it is not generated in a datacenter, and it is mobile throughout its life, which is now typically measured in decades. This has strained long standing assumptions around cost, performance and management of the data stored on these systems. Interestingly, some of the most exciting innovation is happening in what has been considered the archive space that has been dominated by tape. The use cases today for the intersection of object storage and tape are challenging the underlying technologies. This talk will focus on those challenges and solutions to address them and look briefly at future disruptive technologies.
