Session: “Combining File Systems with Key Value Stores – A Best of Both Worlds Approach”

Presented by: Gary Orenstein, vice president of technical solutions at MaxiScale

Date: Tuesday, March 23, 2010

Time: 12:15 – 1:00 p.m. PDT

Details: The widespread use of cloud applications, including photo-sharing sites, news feeds and social networks, is increasing so quickly that IT cannot keep up with the application requirements. In the past, the reliance on relational databases worked due to limited size and scale of the applications. But times have changed. This session will uncover key value store benefits for data center and storage managers. The audience will gain insight into the anatomy of a key value store and how its functionality compares to that of a relational database system.

Session: “What’s the Big Deal with Small Files? Scaling Internet Applications for the Cloud”

Presented by: Gary Orenstein, vice president of technical solutions at MaxiScale

Date: Thursday, March 25, 2010

Time: 9:30 – 10:15 a.m. PDT

Details: Cloud applications such as social networks, photo- and video-sharing websites, and blogs have radically changed the dynamics of file sharing and storage. Millions of people now access and post billions of small files such as photos and video thumbnails in unpredictable patterns, in turn, creating big problems for storage and data center managers trying to manage these applications with inadequate infrastructures. This session will outline how the MaxiScale FLEX Software Platform will solve the problems created by the unpredictable and ever-expanding data requirements of cloud-scale workloads, all while reducing capital and operational costs.
