This week I’m back on the road for another pair of seminars in my Truth in Storage series with Truth in IT. These seminars are really enjoyable for me, since I am able to talk Storage tech for hours on end. It’s great to be back on the storage topic, after two years of trying […]
I’m back out on the road May 1 and 2 in Chicago and Milwaukee for two more in my Building Virtual Infrastructure seminar series. Produced in conjunction with Truth in IT, this series focuses on challenging conventional wisdom in data center infrastructure for server virtualization.
