I arrived in beautiful Chicago today for the Storage Decisions show at the Hilton here. What a great event this is – loads of interested and committed storage users and some of the best minds in the business get together to talk about how we all do this thing we call storage!
I was glad to see Jon Toigo here – while I may not always agree with him, he certainly has vast experience in the storage industry. And I appreciate his role as the iconoclast of storage. We both agree that the real action in the industry happens at a whole different layer than just storing and moving bits.
Before sitting down with Jon, I was pleased to chat with my good friends, Curtis Preston and Bill Peldzus, both of whom have, over the years, proved themselves advocates of end user concerns.
If you’re here, please do come up and introduce yourself. If not, there are three more shows scheduled for this year!
