Is the cloud ready for storage? Is storage ready for the cloud? Solution providers are asking themselves, and their customers, these very questions as they look at new ways to protect, recover and archive data.
The CRN Cloud Storage Week project takes a five-part look at how the channel is approaching this technology, and at how storage vendors are both leading and reacting to the trend to bring more workloads and data to the cloud.
Storage is a key building block for the cloud, and the AWS re:Invent conference turned out to be an important venue for the latest hardware and software components for building private and public clouds.
Legacy storage vendors, which had the most to lose as data started moving to the cloud, are now giving the upstart cloud vendors and big public cloud providers a run for their money. Here's what their partners have to say.
While public clouds large and small provide cloud storage, customers concerned about security or other issues can turn to their partners for help in building storage clouds tuned to their own requirements.
