Cloud Computing Technology Series event to take place in Bangalore, India on February 22, 2011 with focus on Cloud Storage
Bengaluru, Karnataka, India, Feb. 17, 2011 –/BackupReview.info/– IBF Media is organizing a cloud computing event on Tuesday, Feb 22, 2011 in Bangalore that will focus on latest trends, technologies and opportunities for startups to succeed in the cloud storage space.
An eminent panel will focus on trends and technologies in cloud storage and discuss how organizations have effectively deployed cloud storage technologies in their organizations, and how SMB organizations can effectively take advantage of the cloud for storage.
Cloud storage is a model of networked online storage where data is stored on multiple virtual servers, generally hosted by third parties, rather than being hosted on dedicated servers.
The data center operators, in the background, virtualize the resources according to the requirements of the customer, exposing them as storage pools, for customers to proprietary files or data objects.
Physically, the resource may span across multiple servers. Cloud storage services may be accessed through a web service application programming interface (API), or through a Web-based user interface.
* Companies need only pay for the storage they actually use.
