Zadara Summit 2016 Speakers Highlight Part 2


Earlier this year, I wrote a piece highlighting some of the speakers at this year’s Zadara Summit.  We’ve since added a lot more speakers to the agenda, and we’re very excited as the event is approaching quickly. Here are some of the latest additions:


Noam Shendar of Zadara & Intel – What is Behind the OpEx Revolution

Zadara’s COO Noam Shendar will be joined by Intel to discuss the industry-wide shift from CapEx to OpEx. There is a sea change of events where many business platforms are evolving into ‘as-a-service’ models whether it be storage, infrastructure, platform, or disaster recovery (to name a few). What does this mean for the industry and how does Zadara and its partners fit in? Join this session to learn more.


Steven B. Nelson, AWS: Combining AWS and Zadara Storage for a Competitive Advantage

As a certified AWS partner,  Zadara Storage and AWS provide a very unique and amazing storage solution. Steven will dive deep into combining the best of both worlds: the powerful AWS compute resources with Zadara’s enterprise-grade features that all fit into an OpEx business model. By using industry-leading AWS resources combined with Zadara’s advanced service options, your storage is not only powerful but it becomes an agile, immortal asset to your company.


Bud Wainright, Zadara in the Government Space

Bud Wainright is Zadara’s in-house government specialist. He has worked closely with forensic storage in the government space including (but not limited to) body-worn cameras and geospatial systems. Bud’s presentation will dive into how our OpEx solution is the best available for these types of applications.


Sam Coyl, The Evolution of Storage-as-a-Service Partner

The president of Netrepid, Sam Coyl will be presenting a case study presentation demonstrating the evolution of our storage consumption over the last decade. It will discuss the rapid increase in storage consumption as well as the methods for managing the capital, planning capacity and more. He will also dive into how best to monetize storage so you can remain a competitive advantage.

This is shaping up to be an amazing event. We still have some big players in the industry that will have people joining, and once those sessions are finalized, I’ll post another article highlighting their topics of discussion.
