Tape Ark Presents At AWS User Group Forum

Tape Ark Presents At AWS User Group Forum

Really great feedback and response to Tape Ark Founder Guy Holmes’ presentation last week to the Amazon Web Services Perth User Group Forum at Flux in Perth. 

Drawing on his inspiration from the war between Blockbuster and Netflix, many years of personal and professional experience, as well as his past adventures, Guy provided a high-level overview on how he started his business, the AWS tools he is using and the battle that still lies ahead.  It was a new perspective and alternative solution to the age old problem of offsite tape collections in storage that continue to grow in size whilst the data decays, costing serious $$ but adding no value to an organisation.

Thanks to Dienst Consulting for the opportunity and Dan Jenkins Photographer for the photographs.
