5. Topic: "Next Generation Storage Networking"

The storage industry is experiencing a flurry of innovation.
Whereas many storage management problems used to be unsolvable

out of all of these new technologies and to identify those which are
relevant to their organizations. We discuss the technologies at a
technical level in the context of the problems they purport to solve.
