While I was at SNW in Frankfurt, I was given the opportunity to talk to Bob Plumridge, the executive chairman for SNIA (Storage Networking Industry Association) Europe. In our conversation, Bob talked about the hot topics at SNW Europe and a bit about the success of event.
Juergen Arnold is an HP colleague of mine. He is the CTO of our HP Presales organization covering storage, servers, networking and technology services. Until 2009, he was the chairman of SNIA Europe and helped to create the SNW Europe event.
On Thursday at SNW Europe in Frankfurt he had a session titled "Stop the hype: Enable your IT strategy for cloud". It was one of the best sessions I attended at SNW. I was able to talked to Juergen just after his session and record this podcast with him. Its an interesting conversation.
SNW Europe just wrapped up today and I'll have a few podcasts over the next several days from there. The first is with my European colleague Chris Sopp. Chris is a European product manager for data protection and on the first day of SNW, he did a presentation titled "Introduction to Data Protection" that was surprisingly well attended. In this podcast, we talked about why so many people attended an intro session.
