Gestalt IT is pleased to announce our next Tech Field Day event. The Field Day delegates will convene this week in San Jose, CA, engaging some of the most innovative and interesting IT infrastructure companies.
Winning that contest inspired me to join the community of bloggers evangelizing VMware and find ways to give back as well. I started my own blog, vDestination.com, and quickly began writing about VMware, my experiences as well as a few contests that would help give back to the community.
Gestalt IT is pleased to announce the next date in our ongoing series of Tech Field Day events. The Field Day delegates will convene in Seattle, WA on July 15 and 16, engaging some of the most innovative and interesting IT infrastructure companies.
When we announced our “Get Away to VMworld” contest, we knew it would be popular. But we had no idea that it would spark interest from so many people! We are overwhelmed by the response, with more than 70 entries, and by the support from our friends at Symantec, Xsigo, Zetta, and Veeam. It has been so successful, many are asking us to do it again for future shows, and not just VMworld!
We’re extending and enhancing the Gestalt IT â€œGet Away to VMworldâ€ Contest thanks to two wonderful additional sponsors, Zetta and Veeam!
We are pleased to announce the winners of our Newsletter Contest! Instead of a single prize, we decided to give out three!
The annual VMworld gathering in San Francisco has become the central event for virtualization-related companies, but not everyone can attend this must-go event. So we contacted some of our favorite technology companies about sponsoring a contest to send another deserving person to the show!
Trade shows are a veritable swag-fest, some with great loot and some with junk. I’ve been critical of the booth babe and chotchkie phenomenon, but my friend Kevin Houston has a better suggestion: Donate your (useful) swag like backpacks and pens to school kids in need.
Itâ€™s now been a couple of days since the second day of the Gestalt IT Tech Field Day, Iâ€™m actually taking the opportunity to write this on the plane on the way back from Seattle. So once again I thought I would do a summary post until I get the chance to write up a detailed post on each vendor.
So that is Day 1 of the Seattle Tech Field Day out of the way and what a day it has been. Weâ€™ve been out to Microsoft Redmond HQ, or â€œthe templeâ€ as John Obeto calls it. We saw some new products from Veeam and were privileged enough to be the first port of call for a new and very exciting storage start-up, Nimble Storage.
