The cloud IaaS market is a multi-billion dollar industry and it’s no surprise why the demand is booming when you consider some of the many benefits of cloud storage: low upfront cost, access to data from any location, and no need to invest in expensive racks of equipment.  It’s a great option for notorious memory hogs like video and image, but not without risks.

Our panel will explore the growth of video and high quality imaging in the enterprise and discuss the pros and cons of using cloud for these applications. We will answer:

  • Should you use the cloud or in-house resources?
  • Does a hybrid solution make sense?
  • What are the security risks?
  • How much will it cost?

Doors open at 6:15PM and discussion begins at 6:45PM.
