QLogic to Address Migration of Storage to the Cloud and I/O for Big Data at Cloud Expo

June 7 — QLogic Corp., a global leader and technology innovator in high performance networking, will exhibit and present at the 10th International Cloud Expo.

QLogic Speakers Address I/O for Big Data and Migration of Storage to the Cloud

QLogic experts will provide attendees with insight and practical information that will allow them to address current trends in cloud computing and better manage their storage in the cloud era. Presentations include:

Ilker Cebeli, director of cloud computing, QLogic, will discuss "I/O Architectures for Big Data" on Thursday, June 14, at 9:55 a.m. In this session, attendees will learn how Big Data is impacting storage and networking architecture in the data center and how to build optimized infrastructure to address this trend. In addition, Cebeli will explain how to leverage cloud storage while maintaining local iSCSI and Fibre Channel storage infrastructure.

In his presentation, "Migrating the Data Center to the Cloud," on Wednesday, June 13 at 3:30 p.m., David Clark, director of product marketing, Storage Solutions Group, will outline the opportunities for migration of data center storage to the cloud. Clark will present a single-tool solution that addresses and eases the process to migrate data from the most complex data center environments with heterogeneous storage, multi-vendor fabrics, multi-protocol networks, and operating systems into the cloud.

QLogic Provides Fabric Freedom for the Cloud

The company will showcase its FlexSuite adapters and Universal Access Point switches with the flexibility to power 16Gb Fibre Channel or 10Gb Ethernet converged networks from the same hardware. QLogic will also feature its next-generation 10Gb Ethernet intelligent Storage Routers (iSR) with multi-protocol support. QLogic solutions are designed to help enterprises smoothly transition their data center networks at their own pace, and provide the versatility to handle any protocol, any host, any storage and any fabric, empowering virtualized enterprises and cloud computing environments with complete fabric freedom.

Network convergence, along with virtualization of server, network, and storage infrastructure, is driving the next-generation data center toward a service-based, cloud-enabled computing model. QLogic solutions for virtualization, convergence, and data migration provide the flexibility, agility, and heterogeneous operation that are key enablers of cloud-based, service-oriented solutions. The company will be showcasing solutions that enable enterprises to integrate cloud-based services and achieve the benefits of private, cloud-based Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS).

Cloud Expo attendees will have the opportunity to learn more about the highly flexible QLogic Data Migration Solution (DMS) for cloud enablement via IaaS. As applications shift to cloud computing infrastructure, IT managers face the challenge of migrating data from one data center to another without disrupting business. QLogic DMS provides IT managers with a single tool to migrate data from the most complex data center environments and enables enterprises to develop sound, cloud computing strategies.

WHEN:      June 11-14, 2012
