Delegate For Storage Field Day 13

SFD-Logo-150x150

I am very excited to say that I have been chosen as a delegate for Storage Field Day 13 in Denver, Colorado June 14-16. Storage Field Day is just one of the many events of the Tech Field Day program. Tech Field Day brings in various vendors and leaders in tech to present on various topics. The delegates then can interact and ask all kinds of questions. I have been following the Tech Field Day program for a few years now. Ever since my good friend Michael Wood introduced it to me.

I first became interested in becoming a delegate after my friend Thom Greene was invited to join Tech Field Day.  Up to this point I had never met anyone who had been a part of it.  After talked to him it seemed like something I really would like to be a part of.  I know it is going to be an amazing  and humbling experience.  I am going to be with some of the smartest people in the industry.  Just take a look at the event page, and look at everyone that is going to be there.
As of now there is six presenters:

I already know a little about all of these companies, but I am eager to learn more. I am looking forward to the deep dives and white board sessions detailing all of the technology that they offer.

I will be following twitter so if you have anything you want me to find out, tweet at me @brandongraves08 I will try to ask as many questions as I can.  You can also follow #SFD13 to ask questions and keep up with event.

Nutanix .NEXT

I was honored this year to be chosen to be a part of the Nutanix Technology Champions.  I have only recently started using Nutanix, but I could clearly see what made it different.  In an age with the Public Clould all the rage.  I could see something like Nutanix really keeping the private data center alive.  The Public Cloud is so popular because it is such an easy way to consume resources as you need them.  I see what Nutanix is doing how it is really converging everything.  Not only are storage and compute converged, but so are the underlying software.  One software package to rule them all instead of a seperate piece of software for every feature you need.

That is why I am so excited about being a part of the NTC, and the free pass I received to go to the Nutanix .NEXT conference.  Conferences can be really expensive, and I would like to thank Nutanix for investing in its community and showing its appreciation.  I know at it I will meet a lot of new people and learn a lot of new things.  Conferences are really about networking with your peers, and sharing knowledge.  For that reason I see them as valuable as any training.  Hopefully I will meet everyone who reads this post, and if you have not registered yet you can at .NEXT
