For the largest hyperscale, CSPs and enterprise customers, scaling efficiently and cost-effectively to meet unstoppable data growth in a manner that is sustainable and environmentally friendly is paramount to their success. Storage capacity is king, and total cost of ownership (TCO) influences almost every decision they make as achieving the lowest possible TCO is money saved to drive revenue and fuel additional services.
In this joint case study session, Western Digital and Dropbox will team to discuss real-world strategies and solutions to help data centers increase overall storage density, reduce its physical footprint, lower power and provide significant cost savings—without sacrificing performance or reliability. With online tools and services more important than ever before, Dropbox will share how it pioneered high-density cloud services, and how it continues on its strategic path, taking advantage of the latest technologies with the lowest TCO without sacrificing data durability and availability for its 600 million+ online customers.
