Company’s VP of Product presents on benefits of using next-generation technology to improve performance, slash TCO

AUSTIN, Texas, July 14, 2016 — Caringo’s Vice President of Product Tony Barbagallo will be a featured presenter at the Virtualization Technology Users Group (VTUG) Summer Slam July 21, 2016 in Freeport, Maine.

Barbagallo’s presentation, “Searchable Scale-Out Storage: Using Next-Generation Technology to Improve Performance and Slash TCO,” will address how scale-out object storage can be used for active archive, media streaming services or as cloud storage for organizations struggling to protect, retain and access critical information in today’s era of explosive unstructured data.

“With the continued growth in data we’ve seen over the past couple of years, organizations simply cannot rely on the scalability and accessibility of legacy file system technology for their data protection, management, organization and search needs,” said Barbagallo. “I look forward to sharing with attendees at the VTUG Summer Slam how they can consolidate all their files into a single searchable storage platform to find the data they are looking for while reducing total cost of ownership up to 75 percent.”

VTUG is an inclusive community that consists of users, vendors, VARs and industry experts, all working together constructively and productively. Summer Slam is among VTUG’s flagship virtualization user group events bringing in vendors and VARs to provide end users with quality content and independent industry experts to provide insights from a different vantage point that is always welcome and beneficial.
