Ever been to the TechTarget Storage Decisions conference? It’s my favorite trade show, since it’s totally focused on end users – instead of being a product showcase, Storage Decisions is all about what real people need to do with their enterprise storage infrastructure. Sure, there’s lots of technical product talk, but none of the speakers work for the hardware or software companies. And did I mention that attendance is free?
If this sounds good to you, then now is the time to register for the Chicago show, coming up from May 13 through 15. If you can attend, I strongly recommend coming in the day before the show so you don’t miss the kickoff on Tuesday morning.
As for me, I’ve got two sessions at the show this year, both on Wednesday the 14th. Come in the morning for my Deep Dive Into Email Archiving Products, incorporating lots of the ideas I got from my Storage Magazine article and Webcast on the subject. That afternoon, I’ll be presenting a shortened version of my Storage Virtualization Seminar, covering everything you wanted to know about virtualization technology in an hour instead of a day! I’ll also be at the Ask the Experts Booth on the show floor on Tuesday evening if you’d like to come up and introduce yourself.
