Humans Aren’t Smart Enough to Manage Storage

With so much data at the average organization’s disposal, the task of storing it all — and storing it in an effective manner — seems to be quickly becoming more than humans can handle on their own. In this episode of the On-Premise IT Roundtable podcast, sponsored by Pure Storage, host Stephen Foskett is joined by Pure’s Prakash Darji, as well as IT luminaries, Gina Rosenthal and Chris Grundemann, to discuss how IT organizations can smartly manage their storage. SPOILER ALERT: it looks like it’s time to let machines like Pure Storage’s FlashBlade do the storage management work for us.
