About the panel: CLOUD STORAGE: MOVING BEYOND BACKUP?

For a few years, cloud-based storage has been a ideal solution for backing up enterprise data, but a new breed of startups is trying to convince businesses to move their primary data into the cloud. This panel will examine whether the cloud can meet the performance, the security and cost requirements that businesses place on primary storage systems and what it will take to make the cloud an appealing option.
