Crushing Data Silos with ownCloud and Gluster – Frank Karlitschek, ownCloud

More and more employees store company data in public and consumer-grade cloud services like Dropbox, Google Drive or iCloud. The reason is that they provide convenient features to sync the files between devices. Users want to access all their data independently where they are and which device they currently use.On the other hand, more and more data is stored in isolated silos in these organizations — which makes it difficult for the employees to access and sync it in an optimal way.This talk presents how the combination of ownCloud and Gluster can be used to provide a hybrid and secure solution for this problem.

The first part gives an overview about a possible highly scalable architecture that is leveraging the power of Gluster.The second part of the talk gives an outlook of how this architecture can be used to provide a single data access engine for users to bridge the gap between internal data silos and a seamless user experience for users.

Be sure to drop by and catch one of our many panel sessions.

See you there!
