Speaker Bio
Sash Sunkara is co-founder and CEO of RackWare. She is a seasoned technology executive with deep expertise in solutions for data centers in both enterprise and hosting environments that leverage commodity server solutions, server virtualization and leading edge storage architectures. Prior to founding RackWare in 2009, Sash was VP of marketing for QLogic's Network Solutions Division with responsibility for the switch product lines. Previous to that, she was co-founder and chief business officer at 3Leaf Systems, a venture-backed server virtualization company. Earlier in her career, Sunkara served as VP of program management at Brocade Communications. Sash started her career at HP developing networking switches and routers. She holds a BSEE degree from California State University, Sacramento, where she graduated with honors.

RackWare recently launched the third-generation of its cloud management solution, RackWare Management Module (RMM). With the addition of cloud-based disaster recovery, the solution provides enterprises with a complete cloud management solution for business-critical use cases, and allows enterprises to seamlessly extend existing IT architecture into the cloud for minimal disruption. RackWare's flexible and automated cloud management solution enables enterprises to easily move their workloads seamlessly between private, public or hybrid cloud environments, while allowing them to expand and contract resources as they are needed. The newly added disaster recovery capability provides whole-server protection and failover at a fraction of the cost of running a fully replicated data center architected for high-availability or clustering technologies.

In a Sept. 2 InformationWeek story, Laurianne McLaughlin, editor-in-chief and one of the Startup Hot Seat panelists, identified RackWare as one of the top startups to watch at Interop New York this year. She spent some time chatting with Sash about what sets RackWare apart in a crowded space.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
