Geert Jansen and Jacob Strauss, Amazon Web Services


This tutorial is targeted towards administrators and developers that would like to understand the latest developments in cloud-based managed file services. We'll start off with an overview of available offerings, we'll cover intended use cases, the pros and cons of each of the offerings, and we'll make a comparison with self-managed offerings. We'll also talk about how what tools are available to move on-premises file storage solutions to the cloud.
