Data Blocks - Helping arrange your data for building the future
Whose folder is that? What file is that? Who owns it? Is it legal? Just some of the questions we need to answer about our data, but how do we start? This session will take you through some of the steps and strategies you can take to organise, classify and prepare your organisations data ready to take advantage of the future data management solutions.

Alongside George will share some learning from his own experiences to help you and shape your own data block building.

HPE Keynote Panel: Adapt, recover, evolve

Remote working has seen unprecedented surges in application workloads and rapid drawdowns in storage capacity. Combined with managing workloads in the traditional style and cloud this presents additional challenges. In this keynote panel HPE will share their thoughts on how to bridge the gap that is developing between traditional and cloud models, and give their top tips for keeping your organisation up and running; from alleviating performance and capacity constraints to freeing up data centre space by utilising the cloud.

HPE will demonstrate how using different financial offerings, such as HPE Greenlake, can make significant savings over traditional purchase approaches.

    Scality: Empowering Data Mobility

    Learn how to build a scalable and versatile data platform to unlock the true potential of data.

    For nearly all companies today, your data holds the power to transform your business – if you can harness the full potential of data through new services to more users, by extracting valuable insights and by improving the efficiency in how your data is stored and managed. Unstructured data is the new norm. Data is now created everywhere, massive capacities are created in the enterprise, the cloud and also at the edge. It is no longer unusual for companies of all types to manage multiple petabytes of data.

    Given all of these forces, storage needs to be more than a tool to store data, it needs to become a strategic platform to help you gain advantage. This means data needs to be on a platform that can protect it, make it easily accessible - all the time - to users, and empower it to extract its value. This data platform needs to evolve over time so it can continuously provide better efficiency in cost, people and service delivery.

    To empower data mobility, today’s data platforms need to fundamentally change how they scale, protect and keep data available, interface to the cloud and edge, and how they improve cost efficiencies.

    Discover how Scality delivers the world’s most scalable and versatile data platforms that are resilient, built-for-cloud, and future-proof.
