Description

We recently utilized the Panzura cloud storage system to move our data to the cloud. This class will go over how the company ended up getting to this decision and how it has benefited by going to the cloud. We will also cover the buy-in from management and the changes that need to be made in IT to switch from on-prim storage to cloud storage. The speaker has given this presentation at the Association of Consulting Engineering Companies (ACEC) National Conference in Washington, DC, and he will be presenting at the ACEC National Conference in Hawaii in October 2014.
