GigaOM Structure: SolidFire Founder to Participate in Cloud Storage Panel

SolidFire announced today that its founder and CEO Dave Wright will be participating in the “Cloud Storage: Moving Beyond Backup” panel at the GigaOM Structure conference June 23 at 9:05 San Francisco, CA. SolidFire is a provider of all-solid-state storage systems for cloud service providers.


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.
