Online PR News – 04-September-2017 – St Petersburg, Russia – Data storage vendor RAIDIX will team up with the IT cluster of the Skolkovo Foundation to organize the annual storage technology conference PROSTOR at Skolkovo Innovation Center. The event is scheduled for October 26, 2017, and will host a constellation of international IT experts from companies like AIC, Broadcom, EMC, HGST/WD, Intel, Mellanox, RAIDIX, SNIA, and more.

The largest data storage event in Eastern Europe, PROSTOR (http://prostor.raidix.ru) is an annual forum established in 2015 and headquartered in Moscow, Russia. In 2017, the Skolkovo Foundation has taken the lead as the event’s co-host and partner catering to venue and facilities arrangements, essential infrastructure and equipment for showcasing hardware and software technologies.

The Foundation invests into building the local IT ecosystem and helps Russian innovative companies establish business connections with the global industry leaders. Skolkovo matches technology needs and interests of international corporations with their IT counterparts in the Russian IT cluster, and helps innovators formulate unique selling points and prospects for further development. One of the large-scale projects under the auspices of the Foundation resulted in a co-branded long-term storage solution building on Panasonic’s optical disks and the RAIDIX management software.

PROSTOR 2017 is a snapshot of the contemporary industry landscape, an interaction platform for competing technologies and approaches that shape up the global data storage market. The PROSTOR organizers are striving to re-think the old-school format of industry conference, shush the marketing hype and provide genuine insights into existing, burgeoning and sci-fi data storage technologies.

In quest of ‘The Next Big Thing’ in Storage, PROSTOR 2017 throws together top-notch hardware technologies (storage devices, connectivity tools) and storage philosophies (coding, replication). The international program committee includes leading IT experts and data storage gurus, CTOs, CIOs and system architects from the largest vendors as well as innovative startups. The committee’s functions span development of the forum’s core conception, paper selection and defining a range of topical questions that top IT speakers may cover.

The event’s target audience encompasses system integrators, storage vendors, IT suppliers, hardware manufacturers, CCTV integrators, media groups, TV channels, post-production studios, telecom companies, governmental agencies, major HPC clusters – and other companies interested in cost-effective and future-proof data storage.
