Businesses around the world are going through data center transformation towards cloud-native design. In addition to planning storage for the new cloud-native applications; the transformation also involves dealing with massive amount of existing data must be preserved, replicated, migrated, backed up, archived or disposed - this means a rethink of the entire storage infrastructure which may lead to an overhaul on the design. What are the motivations for this transformation? What are the open source tools they using? What does it take to complete this journey without disrupting existing business operations?

In this panel, we have invited experts from NTT Communications, Yahoo Japan, and Toyota to share their experience and stories on this journey; we have also invited the Lead Architect of the OpenSDS project to share what the project is doing to help end users. Join us and our panel experts will address your inquiries around storage transformation for cloud-native design.
