Storage Visions 2014 Kicks Off

Storage Switzerland is in Las Vegas this weekend for the 13th Anniversary of Storage Visions 2014. The two-day conference smartly positioned right before the start of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES). Topics range from data protection and drive recovery to performance memory storage and capacity archive storage. This is an intense, well-organized storage conference.

A 2014 goal of mine is to attend more of the sessions at the conferences we take part in. Normally I am either speaking during the session or in back-to-back vendor briefings. With that goal in mind I set aside the first day of Storage Visions 2014 so I could attend as many of the sessions as possible. As a result of that I am writing up a series of columns that cover what those sessions discussed or thoughts they generated for me. Look for a new category of entries on StorageSwiss called Session Notes that will have this content.

The second day, today, is our more normal briefing day. We have briefings set up with Diablo, Crossroads, NetList, DriveSavers, Samsung, and Huawei. Look for our world-famous briefing notes from us on the vendors we are meeting with to get an update or sneak peek into what they have planned for 2014.

Twelve years ago George Crump founded Storage Switzerland with one simple goal; to educate IT professionals about all aspects of data center storage. He is the primary contributor to Storage Switzerland and is a heavily sought after public speaker. With over 25 years of experience designing storage solutions for data centers across the US, he has seen the birth of such technologies as RAID, NAS and SAN, Virtualization, Cloud and Enterprise Flash. Prior to founding Storage Switzerland he was CTO at one of the nation's largest storage integrators where he was in charge of technology testing, integration and product selection.
