You joined me in San Francisco! Yippee! That’s means you’ve already fought off some unsavory characters walking the streets. You enjoyed an @Uber ride from the airport. You stood in a quite the long line to check in at your hotel, and now you are getting ready to hit the Expo and find out what’s shaking (pun intended) at #vmworld this year. I wanted to give you an overview of what I am doing at #vmworld this year with @tegile and hopefully that will inspire you to do some of the same things.
The @Tegile team booth is 1705. In case you don’t have a map, it’s the big blue one in the front with a @tesla. That you can win. Yep, flashy car, flashy company, flashy datacenter. Come roll the dice and you could be driving back to the airport in style on Thursday. While you are there, check out one of the four live demos we will be doing. See for yourself how you can have it all. It’s the reason we are trying to get everyone to “Think And. Not Or.” Dedupe AND Compression. Hybrid AND All Flash. Block AND File. Choose a platform that can deliver everything your datacenter is asking for, or #compromisenothing. You can also partake in a few of our less advertised contests. They’re kinda secret, but I can tell you that selfies with execs, followers of the @tegile twitter account and instragram accounts are sure fire ways to be let in on those secrets.
If you’re in town and want to come visit, I’m in the booth Sunday from 4-7ish. Monday from 1-5, Tuesday 3-6, and Wednesday 10-1. Stop by and say hi. I may just be carrying around a few Starbucks gift cards to hand out in exchange for a #zelfie.
Also, don’t forget to check out the @tegile speaking sessions. Tuesday, Aug 26, 12:30 PM – 1:30 PM – Moscone West, Room 3003 you can come hear our customer Jim Nonn the CIO from Egan Company talk about his VDI environment running on #intelliflash. https://vmworld2014.activeevents.com/connect/sessionDetail.ww?SESSION_ID=2461&tclass=popup#.U8f6lspoJfs.twitter. Monday, Aug 25, 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM – Moscone West, Room 2014 you can listen to Rusty Putzler, Vice President & COO at Connectria talk about modernizing your datacenter with hybrid flash storage. https://vmworld2014.activeevents.com/connect/sessionDetail.ww?SESSION_ID=2453&tclass=popup#.U8f7MQ-j0EE.twitter. Finally, Tuesday, Aug 26, 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM – Marriott, Yerba Buena Level, Salon 7 where all the new storage kids on the block will host an interactive forum where they will field questions from you! Cool way to evaluate a bunch of vendors at the same time.
Finally, we will have our appreciate party on Monday night at Roe and hope you can stop by. Be sure to come to the booth to get registered as you will need a wristband to enter. More details about the party and all things @tegile during #vmworld are available at http://tegile.com/vmworld2014/.
Happy conferencing and hope to see you!
