If you’re an EqualLogic storage customer, like GCC, you really should try to make it to the first ever national EqualLogic User Conference March 1-3 in Dallas. We purchased our 1st EqualLogic array back in July ‘06 and we’ve been a big cheerleader for the product ever since.
From the conf website:
The main conference on March 1-3 is packed with educational sessions where distinguished technical staff, EqualLogic product managers, tech support gurus, peer users and Dell executives will deliver:
- Primers on networking best practices for iSCSI SANs
- Tips on how to avoid common technical issues
- Deep dives into the EqualLogic software tools such as SAN HeadQuarters
- Data protection strategies for virtual environments and production applications
- Product and feature demonstrations
- Sessions on 10 GbE networking and SSD technology
- Case studies featuring your peers at leading organizations
- Lessons on how to leverage EqualLogic for cutting edge deployments
I’m also excited to hang out with several other church IT EqualLogic users from Watermark Church and Churches in Covenant just to name a few. And this post wouldn’t be complete without the obligatory plug for VR6 Systems whom we all, and many other churches, have purchased EqualLogic gear from ;-)
I’m also hoping to get some tasty TX BBQ … I have found memories of Hard 8 BBQ from the Texas CITRT event last Feb … Mmmmm!
