Event Details

Mountains of Data:  A Hiker's Guide

IEEE, Stanford, Riverbed and Xilinx invite you to an evening conversation about making sense of mountains of data. 

Sir Edmund Hillary said, "It is not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves".  Today, networking and storage technology presents us with incredible capabilities.  However, the data in isolation, like the mountain, doesn't do much.  Its true value emerges in the context of planning, access, and distribution.  It's been said that humans are creating an exabyte of new data every day.  Moving it, storing it, and making good use of it is becoming a challenge.  Tom Coughlin, Mark Day, and Gordon Brebner discuss their perspectives for handling the data explosion.
