ChalkTalk Video: Overcoming the Cloud Privatization Problem

The allure of the public cloud may be wearing off. The theoretical consistent cost of the cloud has proven to be false. CIOs constantly complain about the surprise bill from their cloud provider at the end of the quarter. The solution is to keep or bring IT services in-house but most storage systems have failed to address the problems that drove customers to the cloud in the first place, namely tech refreshes and scalability concerns. In this ChalkTalk Video, my colleague Curtis Preston, invites Tegile’s Rob Commins into our VMworld studio to discuss how IT can overcome the cloud privatization problem.

Twelve years ago George Crump founded Storage Switzerland with one simple goal; to educate IT professionals about all aspects of data center storage. He is the primary contributor to Storage Switzerland and is a heavily sought after public speaker. With over 25 years of experience designing storage solutions for data centers across the US, he has seen the birth of such technologies as RAID, NAS and SAN, Virtualization, Cloud and Enterprise Flash. Prior to founding Storage Switzerland he was CTO at one of the nation's largest storage integrators where he was in charge of technology testing, integration and product selection.
