Last year at IBM Think the world’s largest advertising group explained why it chose CTERA and IBM Cloud to modernize file storage infrastructure and power new levels of worldwide collaboration and user productivity.
So you can imagine how excited we are that after WPP presented at Think 2018, another global leader will join us for another must-see session. We are pleased to reveal today that Humana will present this week at IBM Think 2019. Humana will share its secure cloud journey experience with CTERA and IBM Cloud Object Storage.
IBM Think has traditionally been a great event for CTERA. It provides a massive platform (more than 25,000 attendees) to share our joint successes with IBM. We’re also able to engage in discussions with new prospects, and showcase our latest integrations with IBM storage, cloud, security, and services solutions. After testing the interoperability, CTERA has validated the solution with the IBM Cloud Object Storage integration team. The validated IBM-CTERA solution is available worldwide through IBM Passport Advantage and IBM Global Technology Services.
“CTERA provides a great solution for file services and remote collaboration both in the customer’s data center and in the IBM Cloud,” said Jennifer Stromberg, Director of Global Markets at IBM Cloud Object Storage. “Together we help enable customers to migrate file storage infrastructure to a private or public cloud – with the combined solution supported by IBM.”
Here’s what we’ve got in store for Think 2019:
Customer Speaker: Humana
We’re thrilled that Humana will discuss why CTERA and IBM Cloud Object Storage delivered the ideal solution for its file storage infrastructure modernization initiative. Humana IT manager Joseph Glerum will explain how Humana is protecting critical data across thousands of endpoints. In addition, he’ll address future-proofing against unstructured data growth challenges with an on-premises/private cloud deployment, and how to ensure the highest levels of data security and privacy.
Join us Thursday, Feb. 14 at 11:30am at the St. Regis Hotel.
CTERA + IBM Cloud: Oded Nagel, Chief Strategy Officer, CTERA
Enterprises are moving data in and across clouds, serving more home offices than branch offices. How can you manage the next evolution of edge devices, or “things”? My session will explore how enterprises modernize file storage systems. Attendees will learn how to gain control over the vast amounts of data created, accessed, and shared at the edge to make better business decisions.
You can join my session on Tuesday, Feb. 12 at 12:30pm in San Francisco Ballroom 207 at Moscone South.
CTERA + IBM Cloud in Action at Booth #572
Our team also will be onsite in the Cloud & Infrastructure campus of the expo hall to meet with attendees and deliver live demos of the CTERA Enterprise File Services Platform on IBM COS/Cloud. As well, all visitors to the CTERA booth will take home great swag and can talk in more detail about how we are helping customers solve business problems.
All of our Think activity is driven by the significant momentum of the CTERA-IBM collaboration. During a time when enterprises are increasingly investing in cloud, CTERA and IBM help organizations to efficiently transition from legacy file storage systems to modern cloud-based services without sacrificing security or performance.

It’s going to be a busy week, and we can’t wait for IBM Think 2019 to get started! We hope you can join us and learn what all the excitement with IBM and CTERA is about.
