Storage as a Service is More Than Financial Engineering with Pure Storage

Although the move from capital to operational expenses is important, many organizations expect more than financial engineering from their storage as a service. This episode, sponsored by Pure Storage, is a discussion of the various ways storage can be delivered and consumed as a service. Taruna Gandhi of Pure Storage discusses this premise with Chris Grundemann, Max Mortillaro, and Stephen Foskett. First we tackle the question of capital versus operational expenses and alignment of business and IT. Next we consider whether companies need ownership of storage or just access to appropriate capacity. Finally we discuss the creation of a true managed service and the transition to the cloud.
