Subject: Managing Data & Storage at Scale
Presenters: Peter Godman

Our data footprint is growing at an ever increasing rate. And we never, ever, throw anything away.

Understanding what type of storage platform to choose in order to support a company’s future growth can be a daunting task. Custom built from open source or trust an enterprise-class player? Deploy a NAS, scale-out, object, or cloud based solution? What type of tools are needed to support a storage infrastructure when the number of data assets has grown by 2x, 10x, 100x?

Join Peter Godman, CEO and founder of Qumulo, who will share his expert view on how to work your way through the storage landscape of today in order to support the digital workflows of tomorrow. Hear firsthand why he and his team have placed their bet on the future of Data-Aware Scale-Out NAS. In this talk, Peter will also address some of the key differences between storage alternatives and where he sees the storage industry moving over the next 5 years.

Peter brings 20 years of industry systems experience to Qumulo. As VP of Engineering and CEO of Corensic, Peter brought the world’s first thin-hypervisor based product to market. As Director of Software Engineering at Isilon, he led development of several major releases of Isilon’s award-winning OneFS distributed file system and was inventor of 18 patented technologies. Peter studied math and computer science at MIT.
