See you in the Cloud [Connect] — Sept. 11th-12th in Chicago!

Posted on September 9, 2012 by psadmin

September is upon us and that can only mean one thing — Cloud Connect is here! Next week we’ll be making the trek to Chicago for a fun-filled few days talking about all things Cloud.

Cloud Connect’s Santa Clara show has been a great resource, and does a good job of getting people together to talk about the cloud. This is the show’s first year in Chicago and we’re excited to be part of it. It’s a great opportunity to head to the Windy City, see some old friends, and make some new ones!

We’ve talked a lot about the Pogo Reseller Program in the last few months and how it enables VARs to provide their customers with Nexenta Open Storage solutions from a proven manufacturer – who just happens to be the first Nexenta Premier Partner. Well, we are proud to put our money where our mouth is by having our partner in the Chicago area, Black Diamond Technologies, along with us at the show.

Black Diamond focuses on helping organizations design, build, implement, and manage technology to help increase sales, lower costs, and meet compliance obligations. They have already deployed Storage Director products with Nexenta to customers that traditionally would not have had any other option besides overpaying for legacy products. It’s great to see the power and promise of open storage in action!

If you’re in the area, come down to the show and say hello, we’ll be at booth #521. We’ll be talking about all of our Nexenta ZFS open storage offerings and how they are a perfect fit for almost any cloud deployment. The cost efficiencies and flexibility of open storage go hand in hand with the cloud and ensure clean cloud deployments.  We can’t wait to help facilitate more Open Storage cloud deployments in the Chicago area!
