Aron Brand, CTO, CTERA, discusses in detail two different approaches to managing data migration across numerous Edge and cloud locations – caching and tiering. We hear about the benefits of both strategies and how they differ.

Tiering and caching both move the majority of data from on-premises storage to the cloud while maintaining local access, but this is where the resemblances end.
