Let’s Talk About LISA – LISA ’12, That Is!

We’re in sunny San Diego for the 26th Annual Large Installation System Administration (LISA ‘12) Conference, and the exhibit hall is set to open in just a few hours! This is our first time attending LISA, and we’re excited to be a part of the show.

LISA is a great opportunity for us to talk about all of the Open Storage solutions in our Storage Director product line (not to mention a chance to escape the cold Seattle weather for a few days, hee hee!)

We have been looking forward to this show for a while because system administrators, like the ones attending LISA, are in one of the best positions to take advantage of everything Open Storage has to offer. They are deploying petabytes of storage; not only do they need flexible configurations, but cost is a major concern at these sizes. A product like the Nexenta-powered Storage Director Z-series allows them to get the enterprise features they need to run large, demanding datasets without the huge cost of legacy storage solutions. In addition, the Z-series’ ZFS caching and extremely fast STEC SSDs enable Pogo’s solutions to provide some of the fastest performance available.

But all the performance in the world isn’t worth a hill of beans if you can’t support it. That’s why, as the first Nexenta Premiere Partner, we are one of the only organizations to offer full Nexenta integration support, including network analysis, professional storage configuration services, and 24/7 support. We know that’s what system admins need, and we’re here to evangelize the Open Storage message!

We’re looking forward to meeting with the system administrators attending LISA, and for the opportunity to learn about all of the different projects they are working on. There are unique challenges when deploying larger installs, and we’re excited to have the opportunity to chat with attendees about what we have to offer and how Pogo Storage can help address some of these challenges.

Stop by and see us in Booth #305A — we’ll be happy to show you how our Storage Director solutions can be the solution to your large system installation needs!
