Thank you for visiting the StorageNerve Blog.
My name is Devang Panchigar and author the StorageNerve Blog which is focused primarily on Storage, Virtualization and Cloud Technologies. The StorageNerve Blog started as an experiment to compile some technical storage and virtualization data. Some months into blogging, got an invite to write for Gestalt IT, an enterprise commentary mega blog on subjects around storage / virtualization and enterprise IT. Along with writing for both StorageNerve and GestaltIT, today I am a contributor on several storage and virtualization community sites. Also have been participating in various Standard bodies, technology conferences, shows and invite only technology briefing by vendors. This active participation also enables me to collaborate with storage and virtualization experts around the globe at various levels.
I have recently accepted a job with Accenture as Senior Manager, Datacenter Technologies – Storage Practice.

Some focus areas have been around Pre and Post Sales Support, Technology Implementations, Technical Support, Escalation Management, Client Engagements, Relationship Management, Operations Management and Enterprise Architecture. Some internal organizational responsibilities included managing IT Operations, Strategy as it relates to Corporate Initiatives, Strategic Marketing, Partnerships, Organic Growth, Development of new business venues, Research & Development and Business Transformation.
