On November 8, president, CEO and co-founder of Aspera, Michelle Munson, will be speaking on ‘Transforming cloud infrastructure to support big data.’ Michelle’s presentation will discuss principles of cloud object stores, using examples of Amazon S3, Microsoft Azure, and performance benchmarks of their native HTTP I/O. She’ll share best practices in orchestrating complex, large-scale big data workflows. She’ll also examine the requirements and challenges of IT infrastructure designs (on-premise, cloud or hybrid), including high-speed transport technologies and high-performance NAS.

On November 6, Aspera’s director of cloud platforms and services, Jay Migliaccio, will be participating in a panel on object storage for big data. He’ll join Tom Leyden, director of alliances and marketing at object storage innovator Amplidata, and speakers from Quantum, Intel, Panzura and StorageMojo to discuss this new storage paradigm designed for massive volumes of unstructured data, drawing on Aspera’s experience with Amazon S3 and expertise in the media and entertainment and life sciences industries.

On November 9, he’ll join speakers from Extreme Reach and DataDirect Networks to discuss how the industry can address concerns around security, downtime, access, dependency and interoperability, and how it can further capitalize on the cloud’s positive attributes.

Aspera will demonstrate its Aspera On Demand cloud solutions throughout the event, which focuses on the latest advances in applying cloud-based solutions to all aspects of entertainment content production, storage and delivery.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
