Servergy to Discuss the Future of Distributed Storage and Sustainable Big Data

SAN ANTONIO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Cleantech IT innovations company Servergy, Inc. – recently described as a “revolutionary disruptor” for the coming “datacenter storm” by Gartner, the top global IT research and advisory firm – will participate today in the Open BigCloud Symposium and OCP Workshop 2014.

Servergy Vice President of Engineering Vihar Rai will discuss trends in distributed storage and the need for more sustainable server technology to keep up with today’s data-hungry, power- and real estate-constrained era of big data and cloud services. Rai’s presentation – “The Future of Distributed Storage Today” will be held from 4:30 to 5:00 p.m. on May 7 in the Ballroom at the University of Texas at San Antonio.
