Explore AWS file storage solutions at re:Invent 2019

UPDATE: The AWS re:Invent links in this post are outdated. Please visit the AWS Events channel on YouTube for a complete on-demand playlist of AWS Storage sessions at AWS re:Invent 2019.

In today’s business environment, data is the foundation for innovation and transformation. Using data the right way can literally propel a business to becoming a market leader. So storing data, protecting data, and preserving data is paramount for every business.

This year at re:Invent, we’ll have more than 150 breakout sessions, workshops, chalk talks, and builders sessions that cover what and how AWS is doing in the area of data storage.

Our amazing customers will also be sharing their data migration stories. In our “What’s new in AWS file storage” session, we’re excited to have Brandon Harris, the Executive Director of Data Science Technology at Discover Financial Services, and Mark Bixler, Sr. Cloud Engineer at MINDBODY, Inc., share their cloud migration journeys.

If you’re new to re:Invent or need a refresher, we recently published an AWS Storage re:Invent guide to help you get the most of out of your experience.
