Cloud Data Management Briefing

2 hours
This briefing is beneficial for customers wanting to learn about the various cloud data management platforms and cloud storage options from several different providers. Our team can help compare and contrast the different public cloud storage options, whether these are independent software vendors (ISV), such as NetApp, Pure, Dell and HPE, or native public cloud storage offerings. We will also cover all of the top trending items relevant to data management in the cloud, including how cost optimization and cost management are important as public cloud resources are consumed. Finally, our team will highlight the different buying options (BYOL, Marketplace and OnDemand) available to customers.


This briefing is geared toward three distinct components as organizations look to a data strategy in the public cloud.

  1. Provide an overview of the cloud storage landscape, including both ISV and public cloud-native offerings.
  2. Navigate the landscape and various tools available to organizations to help with cost optimization and management.
  3. Detail the various buying options for organizations and how each option directly affects any commitments, enterprise discount programs (EDP) or enterprise agreements (EA) within each public cloud provider.

During this briefing, we will review the various cloud storage offerings from the following providers:

  • NetApp
  • Dell Technologies
  • Pure Storage
  • HPE

We help customers better understand the cloud storage and data management landscape.
