Storm FX Tech Breakfast - Archiving and Data Analytics
Selected industry experts guide you through 2 core themes Archiving Technologies and Data Analytics.
Session 1: Future-proof archiving, constant data access and how to utilise data analytics to enable new revenue streams
This workshop will take you through active archive concepts, tiering, tape formats, data integrity, media lifecycle management, LTFS, LTO-6 and much more.
Learn how LTO archive technologies work, what they are and how they differ.
Get hands-on with professional LTO tape libraries and their inner workings and learn why it is essential to archive to tape and not to single disks.
Session 2: Data Analytics: Defining Big Data and how to enable new revenue Streams
When looking into Data Analytics we will show you how you can access petabytes of data across several isolated databases and storage systems to open new revenue streams.
We explain how cutting-edge technology is able to leverage existing information and allows you to gain new insight into your current business.
