Backup, disaster recovery and long-term retention are all popular use cases for the cloud. But as more data is stored – and copied – in the cloud, what was once an almost negligible cost for cloud storage now significantly eats into technology budgets. As cost pressures increase, there are better ways to approach cloud storage than simply continuing to push data up into the cloud.
In this session, ActualTech Media Analyst Scott Bekker and Quest® Senior Product Management Consultant and Technology Strategist Adrian Moir will have a thought-provoking discussion on reducing cloud storage costs.
Adrian and Scott will show how no strategy for cloud storage cost reduction can begin with costs alone. They'll examine the numerous factors that must be considered, from how data should be encrypted, to ensuring immutability, to the business reasons for keeping and protecting the data in the first place.
They’ll also walk through the steps of developing a properly nuanced and realistic strategy for containing cloud costs. You’ll learn best practices for optimizing cloud object storage, managing egress costs, evaluating different cloud storage for different data, replication and cloud tiering.
By the end of this webcast, you’ll have a better understanding of how to get your cloud storage costs under control.
