Technology trends such as virtualization and flash have disrupted the storage industry over the past 5 years. However the great majority of storage clients still use either file protocols (NFS, CIFS/SMB) or block protocols (iSCSI, FC) to access their networked data.

OS/app instances frequently have specific requirements of their storage access method. Storage can be provided by the hypervisor or the client can directly mount a networked resource. However the storage is accessed and wherever it is located the data needs to be protected. These topics will be covered in this talk.
