As a member of the four-panel discussion moderated by Forrester Research Principal analyst Andrew Reichman, Gladwin will discuss the growing need for object-based storage solutions that  address the storage industry's massive data needs while allowing for availability, security and scalability. Cleversafe has been a pioneering company in leveraging object based storage and Information Dispersal Algorithms (IDA) to offer a reliable cloud storage platform that can scale to exabytes and beyond for companies managing Big Data. The panel will also feature executives from Rackspace, Caringo and Scality.
