And finally on stage
Molly Presley, SVP Marketing and Ian Marcroft, Technical Director, EMEA, Hammerspace
Hammerspace is a software solution that creates a Global Data Environment which eliminates storage silos are gives users and applications a shared, unified view and control of all data globally, exactly as if all those files were on local storage exposed through a single local file system.
A global Data Environment is defined as a means by which users and applications can get the experience of local access to data that may be stored in a decentralized cloud of widely distributed storage types/locations, while at the same time providing global control for data services transparently across them all. The dada environment could include multiple otherwise incompatible storage silos in a data center or across multiple data centers and may include one or more cloud vendors.
And, Technology Live! Munich was held in December, yesterday, highlighting other companies.
