GestaltIT TechFieldDay is being kicked off on Thursday 12th of Nov 2009, a two day event by GestaltIT. The vendors will have a chance to have a one on one technology discussion with industry independent bloggers related to various virtualization and storage technologies.
The various vendors attending the GestaltIT TechFieldDay are
The various sponsors of this event are
3Par: We might get to hear about various 3Par Products including the T-Class and the F-Class computing platforms. Also possibly a technology review on the Agile Cloud. Looking forward to meeting up with Marc Farley and his team at 3Par.
Data Robotics: We might get to see and play with the Drobo and DroboPro from Data Robotics.
Xsigo (See-go Systems): Absolutely looking forward to talking to Xsigo systems, there are quite a few customers that have asked about these products. Understanding the underlying technology with Xsigo system platforms is the key. Saw the demo of Xsigo systems running at Vmworld 2009 Expo floors, quite impressed.
Ocarina Networks: I have always read about the Ocarina products, never actually have any hands-on experience with it. It will be great to see the product in action with the Ocarina challenge put forward to bring a 2GB memory stick at the GestaltIT TechFieldDay for a live product demo. Looking forward to meeting up with Sunshine Mugrabi and her team at Ocarina Networks.
MDS Systems: The Green computing blocks, as I would like to call them. Again I personally do not have any experiences with MDS products, but would like to understand the technology, the market, pricing and how it scales in an enterprise environment.
Nirvanix: Tons of questions already lined up for them. Looking forward to the Nirvanix team presentation. I wonder what side of the team would Stephen Foskett sit with this presentation.
Symantec Storage: We will probably hear about some data protection and storage management products from Symantec. I do have some questions on the storage management products from Symantec and would like to discuss those during the presentation.
Along with the vendors, there will be some sponsors of the event.
Bhava Communications: Bhava communications is an up and coming Tech PR company.
Vmware: What can I say about Vmware.
TechValidate: A Marketing Research Company. Looking forward to meeting up with the Tech Validate team. Looking forward to meeting up with Brad O’Neil, a true industry entrepreneur as I would like to call him.
Truth in IT: W.Curtis Preston started company, providing user experience on IT products. I have personally never spoken to W. Curtis Preston and hope this will be a chance to connect with him.
Hope this will be an exciting trip, looking forward to attending the event and hopefully understanding technologies and products from these vendors.
