Formation Data Systems (Formation), a company revolutionizing enterprise storage, today announced that CEO Mark Lewis will speak at the 2016 Cloud Computing Expo on June 7 in New York, NY. At the conference, Formation will also conduct demonstrations of FormationOne Dynamic Storage Platform™ (FormationOne™), the company’s hyperscale dynamic storage platform at booth #229.

Presenting alongside leading industry experts, Mark will discuss how software-defined storage (SDS) infrastructures can be deployed to accelerate enterprise modernization, transforming storage from monolithic silos to an elastic pool of petabyte-scale resources that deliver the agility and economics of public cloud with the security and control of private data centers. Out-of-control data growth is a challenge faced by both mid-size and large enterprises across all industries. This unprecedented data growth is increasing as more organizations seek to mobilize and modernize their applications, putting enormous stress on IT infrastructure and enterprise economics. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard until recent innovations including FormationOne has changed this problem. Illustrating use cases for dynamic SDS integration, Mark will showcase how organizations can readily scale up to meet these new enterprise IT demands for agile, economical, flexible and reliable storage solutions.

Formation will also exhibit at the three day exhibition, offering demonstrations of its flagship FormationOne storage platform to attendees. The FormationOne platform offers the ideal combination of private cloud control and public cloud scale to transform enterprise infrastructure and solve the data challenges businesses face today. In an extension of the company’s highly successful “See-a-Demo-Get-a-Goat”, in which Formation has partnered with OxFam America, Formation will donate a goat for every demonstration given at the event. To date, the company has donated over 75 goats to families and children in impoverished countries.
