Tech(nical) Field Day are well know events, organized by Stephen Foskett and his team, with the purpose of bring together innovative IT product vendors and independent thought leaders to share information and opinions in a presentation and discussion format.
There are different Tech Field Day events by topic (Storage, Virtualization, Networking, Wireless and, next year, also Data), but also some special events live from other IT events: Tech Field Day Extra and Tech Field Day Live. And although not a Tech Field Day event, the same staff has occasionally organized a live Symposium event to showcase a particular area of enterprise IT technology.
As usual there will be a Tech Field Day Extra at VMworld, and like in past year both for the US and the EU editions:
As usual the US edition will be really rich with a lot of presentations and companies in three days (from Mon to Wed), and also delegates (not all in the same days of course).
Will be not only a Virtualization based event, but also a cross technilogies (and this multi-competencies approach will be back also in the Tech Field Day 10). And probably other events will be hosted inside this space.
I’m really honored to be part at this event on the third day, and will be a great opportunity to ear some news from Violin Memory and Datto. But also a great opportunity to share experience with some great experts in virtualization and storage.
