"The question is not whether to use the cloud for media storage, but how best to use it," said Jenkins. "Media companies can realize big cost savings, significant efficiency gains and unprecedented flexibility if they pursue the right strategy for incorporating the cloud into their storage infrastructure and workflows. I look forward to providing some insights on how companies can make the most of the cloud -- and all tiers of storage supporting their operations."
