Last week, after the Exec Event in Palo Alto, I joined my friend W. Curtis Preston for his first Backup Central Live! event. Curtis has spent years educating IT pros about data protection, this was the first week of a new series of self-produced events. And let me tell you, although I’ve seen him present dozens of times, Curtis was really in his element here. He held the packed room enthralled, and the vendor sponsors I talked to were very pleased about the event!
The surest sign of success for the Tech Field Day event series is the return of past presenters and delegates. We are pleased to announce our first three-time Tech Field Day presenter: Data Robotics will make a third presentation as part of Tech Field Day 5!
Gestalt IT is pleased to announce our next Tech Field Day event. The Field Day delegates will convene in and around San Jose, CA on February 9 and 10, 2011. There, they will engage some of the most innovative and interesting IT infrastructure companies, with leading enterprise software provider, Symantec, headlining.
After fighting yet more networking gremlins, Tech Field Day resumed at The Hoffman Agency wit a presentation by SolarWinds. We had come to expect quite a lot from this company after their fine presentation at Net Field Day in September, and the delegates were not disappointed. SolarWinds discussed their various management products, as well as their approach to high availability and database design.
Day 2 of Tech Field Day began with data management startup, Actifio. The Boston-based software company just recently came out of stealth and were eager to discuss their technology with the Field Day delegates.
NAS acceleration specialist Avere, led by industry veteran Ron Bianchini, was the third presenter at Tech Field Day 4 in San Jose. Ron and marketing VP Rebecca Thompson led the team through a rousing technical presentation, and left many delegates saying they were very impressed.
The second presentation at Tech Field Day San Jose was by I/O virtualization pioneer, Aprius. This session began with CEO, Varun Nagaraj, who set the stage for VP of product marketing, Craig Thompson. Also contributing were VP of systems engineering, Afshin Daghi, and founder and chief architect, Peter Kirkpatrick.
Tech Field Day in San Jose began at the NetApp briefing center. We streamed the event live, as well as recording it for future use. For the first time, we are able to present the raw video from the Field Day immediately!
