The Do-Not-Miss Storage Sessions, Panels and Events at VMworld US 2014


It’s that time of year again. Our team is working crazy hours putting together an awesome VMworld experience. VMworld prep has become an annual rite of passage in our industry and this year is proving to be the most exciting year I have ever experienced.

The partnership between SolidFire and VMware is amazing and I wanted to take a moment to introduce our awesome presenters and share the scoop on a few of the key events by SolidFire at VMworld this year. We even have a little something for the #vExperts out there that you might be very interested in (see below).

vmworld-logo Calling all vExperts! Even if you can’t make the show, we still have something for you. Schedule a demo between now and September 12th and you’ll be entered to win Bose noise-canceling headphones. Not just any headphone, these are specially-designed for vExperts.

Between these sessions, the 2nd Annual Craft Beer Tasting, and a huge amount of activity and giveaways at Booth #1629, SolidFire has a little something for everyone this year at VMworld. We hope you take advantage of one or more of the speaking sessions and events, and please stop by and say hello!

Now … back to work on demos, white papers and a few other things we have cooking. See everyone in a week!
