Opening Keynote: Storage is Not About Storage Any More

A quick look at how the world of storage world is evolving and why OpenIO is ahead of the curve.

  • Enrico Signoretti (Head of Product Strategy, OpenIO)

3,2,1, Object Storage!

We talk about flexiblity, lightweight design, serverless computing, and open source. Let’s see how quickly you can get a complete system running, as well as how much it takes to scale it, and how resilient it is. In this session you learn how to install distributed storage software, and you will see a demonstration of fault resistance. We’ll also showcase the latest version of our web user interface.

  • Guillaume Delaporte (Head of Presales, OpenIO)
  • Vladimir Dombrovski (Software engineer, OpenIO)

ARM, Object Storage, and More

We recently tested OpenIO on OVH SoYouStart servers and built a cluster of 48 ARM nodes. In this session we discuss our experience, the performance we measured, and the benefits of this type of solution.

  • Benjamin Fichel (OVH)
  • Raphaël Glon (OVH)
  • Maxime Thomas (Pre-sales engineer, OpenIO)

Building GDPR compliant solutions with OpenIO and SME File Fabric™

In this presentation we talk about on how to build GDPR and regulatory compliant solutions using Storage Made Easy File Fabric and OpenIO.

  • Kamran Yousaf (CTO, Storage Made Easy)

Keynote: Grid for Apps

Grid for Apps, which is part of OpenIO SDS, is an innovative event-driven compute framework. It enables users to run applications directly on the storage infrastructure without any other components to manage. Just data and applications, next to each other, simplifying the entire infrastructure and offloading several compute tasks to the storage layer while increasing overall efficiency.
In this session we will discuss the benefits of this solution and demonstrate some practical examples to show you how easy is to to work with Grid for Apps.

  • Enrico Signoretti (Head of Product Strategy, OpenIO)
  • Julien Kasharerou (Head of Grid for Apps, OpenIO)

Grid for Apps & TensorFlow

Artificial intelligence and machine learning will drastically change the way we deal with data. Thanks to advanced algorithms and new forms of computing, we will have many more options and better analytics to extract more value from data more quickly. OpenIO and Skapánê can be the perfect partners to provide an end-to-end stack capable of solving challenges like this.
In this session, you’ll see a demo based on TensorFlow to show a real world example with image recognition.

  • Maxime Thomas (Presales Engineer, OpenIO)
  • José Coral (Skapánê)

Open Panel: What to Expect from Storage in the Near Future?

Which features would you like to see in your storage system in the next 12 months? What has the highest priority for your organization? In which area do you see the most demanding requirements? We will discuss these and many other questions with the panel and the audience.
