Reading Time: 5 minutes

I’m very proud and honored to be invited to the next Storage Field Day in Boston. It will be the 16th edition of Storage Field Day (#SFD16), and seems to be very interestning both for the presenters and the delegates lists.

I’m very excited for this event, that remains a must for all techie-people: be a delegate is a unique opportunity to meet interesting people, learn more on products and solutions and usually learn directly by the higher (technical) level of each company… All without biased discussion and always with a high technical level … Contents first in very few words.

At this moment the list of presenters is not complete, but the confirmed names are:

  • Dell-EMC (after the TFD16 at Dell’s HQ will be interesting see which topics will be covered)
  • INFINIDAT (also if I’ve not wrote, yet, anything about them, they have interesting storage solution)
  • Nasuni (this will be a new company for me, so I’m very curious)
  • SNIA (the Storage Networking Industry Association advances the interests of the storage industry by driving the evolution and adoption of storage technologies and standards)
  • StorONE (also if I’ve not wrote, yet, anything about them, they have interesting storage solution)
  • Zerto (probably there will be more details about the news announced at the last ZertoCon)

The schedule will be the following:

Wednesday, Jun 27 10:00 – 12:00 StorONE Presents at Storage Field Day 16
Wednesday, Jun 27 13:30 – 17:30 Dell EMC Storage Presents at Storage Field Day 16
Thursday, Jun 28 8:30 – 9:30 SNIA Presents NVMe Over Fabrics at Storage Field Day 16
Thursday, Jun 28 10:00 – 11:00 Zerto Presents at Storage Field Day 16
Thursday, Jun 28 13:00 – 15:00 INFINIDAT Presents at Storage Field Day 16
Thursday, Jun 28 16:00 – 18:00 Nasuni Presents at Storage Field Day 16

And we can add also Hitachi Vantara, considering that the day before #SFD16 there will be a full day about them (but with a delegates list a little different).
