Reasons to attend

Carrenza turned to NetApp (NASDAQ: NTAP) and implemented the NetApp® SolidFire® all-flash storage system to increase infrastructure agility and responsiveness, while reducing storage maintenance time and administration effort. As a result, Carrenza’s customers now scale storage resources without up-front capital expenses. The scalability and agility frees customers from unnecessary up-front costs and allows them to plan ahead for performance or capacity changes.

High performance cloud storage and the requirement to be more agile has become a strategic priority for many organisations and is a significant differentiator when choosing a cloud supplier.

Join this event to see how cloud experts Carrenza and Solidfire deliver high performance cloud storage and the business benefits it delivers to organisations at large.
