It may sound counter-intuitive at first, but one of the drivers fueling Multi-Cloud’s momentum is cost savings. How would you be saving money if you store your data in multiple clouds? Well, here’s how: By leveraging the optimum, most cost-effective cloud services for your workload at any given time, across all cloud service providers (as opposed to just one) By avoiding data access/transfer costs and egress fees levied by cloud service providers (no data moving required) By using your newly found freedom and independence (from vendor lock-in that is) as bargaining chip and meaningful leverage to negotiate better pricing from.
Saying "multi-cloud" without saying it: Within the first five minutes of his keynote at this year’s AWS re:Invent, Andy Jassy, CEO of Amazon Web Services, said something that made me take notice: “Most ISVs will adapt their software to work on one technology infrastructure platform. Some will do two. Very few will do three.”
Dusseldorf SDS Day The SDS Day tour continues. Dusseldorf was the site for Scality’s first Software-Defined Storage Day in Germany on Thursday the 21st of September. A crowd of nearly 50 people joined the event held at the BeOne conference center near the Rhine. As attendees gathered before the start of the program, they had an opportunity to mingle and speak with representatives from Scality and our partners HPE, Cisco, Ctera, Veeam and Owncloud. To kick things off, Peter Kocur, Scality’s country manager for DACH, welcomed attendees and introduced Erwan Menard, president and COO of Scality to start the program. .
