Tudor will discuss the security, availability and reliability of Cloud Storage technologies and how recent advancements in the industry have simplified adoption. He will also discuss what organizations should know about their internal processes, infrastructure and data sets to maximize the benefit of implementing Cloud Storage while optimizing utilization of current storage assets.

“Storage Networking World offers a terrific opportunity to reach an audience that may be interested in pursuing Cloud Storage but have thus far been reticent because of perceived barriers that have been attributed to the technology,” said Tudor. “Our experience and success with numerous deployments in organizations of various sizes has given us a unique insight into the challenges associated with adoption in addition to exposing some not so obvious benefits. I look forward to addressing these issues at such an ideal time.”
