For many years, the dominant architecture for both compute and storage involved building bigger, faster "scale up" hardware as demand grew.  However, efficient web scale companies like Google and Facebook have demonstrated there’s a place for scale-out architectures too.
Join us for a discussion on the difference in design and approach between scale up and scale out solutions, focusing on the benefits and disadvantages of each. The presentation will cover both storage and hyper-converged solutions, with a review of the products in the marketplace today, including leading vendors such as Microsoft and VMware.
