Software Defined Everything Visionary Tarkan Maner Offers New Big Data and Cloud Computing Solutions
Nexenta CEO's keynote at SDI Summit presents architectures that help data centers handle the storage explosion without busting their budgets.

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Nov. 24, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Tarkan Maner, a global leading proponent of open source driven software defined everything, will discuss the opportunities, challenges, and advantages of the new architectures at the Software Defined Infrastructure Summit (@SDISummit) on Dec 1-3 at the Santa Clara Convention Center.

Tarkan's "Vision for the Software Defined Data Center" is 100% software based and does not require expensive proprietary hardware. His approach allows ready access to all kinds of clouds, simple management, and full automation. Data centers can then respond to increased, varied, or changing workloads at the lowest possible cost, and cope with such issues as real-time analysis, mobile access everywhere, and full integration with social media.

SDI Summit is a three-day event including all-day seminars on software defined storage, OpenStack, and Ceph. Free plenary sessions include software-defined data centers (SDDC), SDI in 2025, Market Research, User Forum on Implementing SDI, SDI Futures, What You Need to Know about SDI Today, and a VC Forum on creating successful startups.
