Databases and Storage Systems Are Converging

Storage systems and databases are becoming increasingly alike. In this episode of On-Premise IT Podcast recorded at the recent Storage Field Day event in California, delegates – Glenn Dekhayser, Jim Czuprynski and Denny Cherry, join host Stephen Foskett, to chew over this. In what ways are storage platforms and databases alike? Are they only different in the way they store data, or is the distinction purely based on the IT personas using them? Watch the panel explore the ins and outs of modern arrays and databases, and dissect into why, despite their likeness, the two exist side by side. Learn how databases and storage platforms treat data differently. Hear them list down the properties that separate the two.
