Storage Expo 2008, A Date for your Diary

Storage Expo, the UK’s definitive event for data storage, information and content management, provides visitors with the opportunity to compare the most comprehensive range of solutions and services from all the leading suppliers whilst addressing today’s key issues in an unrivalled education programme. Organisations increasingly have to look at how they store, manage and protect all kinds of information and data, from its creation, through to archiving and final destruction.

The show is now in its 8th successful year and in addition to more than 100 exhibitors the education programme features over 60 experts on data storage and information management. Visiting Storage Expo at the National Hall Olympia London from 15th - 16th October 2008 will help organisations discover their most effective tools and methods to meet your storage, information and content management needs.

A survey by Storage Expo has found the top data storage challenges facing organisations are:

  • How to implement the right disaster recovery strategies (48%)
  • The management of increasing volumes of data (48%)
  • Ensuring data security of the business (46%)
  • How to store data cost effectively and justify ROI (42%)
  • Ensuring compliance with the latest legislation (32%)
  • How to centralise data access (29%)
  • Achieving interoperability across existing storage solutions (17%)
At Storage Expo there will be a number of Key Speakers who will cover these issues, with case studies and discussions of how to solve them.

Education Programme Overview:

Storage practice has traditionally been driven by the push of legislation rather than the pull of sound business practice; but increasingly business efficiency, utilization of intelligence, process management and productivity benefits are pulling storage strategy. The Storage Expo 2008 keynote programme looks at the latest business advantages that sound application of storage protocols can deliver for your organisation. The Keynote speakers will include senior executives and storage experts from the government, banks, Formula one team teams and industry analysts. Issues they will be discussing include Efficiency, Data Classification, Virtualisation, De-duplication, Thin Provisioning, Email Management and Archive, Back-up Strategies and Clustered Storage.
