If software is eating the world, SaaS is eating software. Modern businesses are re-writing the rules of application delivery and deployment. As DevOps and container technologies such as Docker grow in popularity, enterprises rely on disruptively simple deployments, eliminating the need to build an application delivery infrastructure. However, SaaS providers that are starting to create their own infrastructure are faced with a range of options for designing a modern, flexible and scalable storage strategy. This panel will explore how virtualization technologies drive and enable IT infrastructure that delivers applications-as-a-service. SaaS businesses' pay-as-you go model requires virtualization at the compute layer for servers and desktops. Scaling up and down, to meet application user demand requires flexible compute deployments that greatly benefit from containerization. As the data foundation for the online business, storage must deliver scale and performance as the compute paradigm evolves, while cost-effectively providing continuous data availability.
