Baseball season is in full effect, the NHL playoffs are entering round two, and EMC has just concluded its yearly EMC World show in Las Vegas. With thousands of people attending from around the globe, what a great place to network, learn, and grow your IT knowledge. To cap off the event, a Bruno Mars concert. Like him or not, it’s definitely high energy entertainment.
So what did Kroll Ontrack see from our front row seats you ask? For starters, EMC dominated the exhibitor hall with massive booths as expected. The big thing this year was EMC VSPEX Proven Infrastructure. EMC has gone to great lengths to simplify the solutions for you. If a customer or partner wants to deploy SharePoint, for example, they can choose from a list of proven options to complete their solution. It takes the guessing game right out of it. I am excited to say that Kroll Ontrack was recently VSPEX Validated with Ontrack PowerControls for SharePoint.
In addition to the big presence of EMC and other various phenomenal technology companies, the attendees were top notch. This year I lost count of how many customers stopped by to say “thanks” for making a simple product to make life easier. There was also an increasing amount of people looking to deploy our solution in conjunction with EMC BRS products (Avamar / Networker). Data protection savvy customers are the best.
If you missed EMC World 2013, there will be one next year, so please stop by our booth. If you attended we would love to hear about your experiences at the show. What did you find most interesting?
