It is August at SimpliVity’s corporate headquarters in Westborough, MA. There is a small chill in the air and it is starting to feel like summer is almost over. And the start of the busy fall trade show season is also another sign that summer is wrapping up. I am especially excited to be going to my very first VMworld ever in my career! VMworld is a major show for SimpliVity. In fact, we came out of stealth mode three years ago when we pioneered the hyperconverged infrastructure category with the launch of the SimpliVity OmniCube.
SimpliVity will return to VMworld in full force in two short weeks from August 30th to September 3rd with a substantial presence at the show and for those who cannot make it to the Moscone, you can experience all SimpliVity has to offer at VMworld with our virtual booth experience. So let’s take a look at each in turn.
VMworld, San Francisco, CA
As thought leaders on virtualization, SimpliVity will be involved with several breakout sessions throughout the conference showcasing the power of our hyperconverged infrastructure solution. Several SimpliVity customers, including the Town of Vail, and Verso will be sharing how SimpliVity played a key role in optimizing their virtual infrastructure. Marty Sanders, VP President of Sales in the Americas, will be moderating a customer panel on how hyperconverged infrastructure is delivering benefits to our panel members’ bottom lines. SimpliVity is also participating on a vExpert panel featuring a lively discussion on the pros and cons of different approaches to hyperconvergence, as well as advice on how to navigate the vendor and solution landscape. Finally, we’ll be providing a deep dive on how SimpliVity hyperconverged infrastructure not only provides an infrastructure “makeover,” but how it also enables a backup refresh.
Here is the complete breakdown:
