Spinnaker Networks NAS Architecture: Clustered NAS for Large Systems
Many different NAS architectures exist in the marketplace today, some of
which are simple NAS appliances, and others which are clustered NAS systems.

administrators to scale to much larger clusters than with other systems, to

Michael Kazar, Chief Technology Officer of Spinnaker Networks, will describe
the SpinServer architecture, its strengths and weaknesses compared to other
NAS systems, and discuss where NAS architectures are going in the future.
People with opposing viewpoints are encouraged to come.
