Today we attended the Storage Expo in the Jaarbeurs in Utrecht, the Netherlands. Basically there was very little news but it was nice to see some nice features live in action and get some hands-on experience.
We visited Dell EqualLogic, HP, Lefthand, EMC, etc and saw some real nice storage solutions and got some valueable information on some problems we encounter(ed). I especially liked the private demo at the Dell EqualLogic stand by Jody. He gave us some cool demos of Snapshot Manager for ESX, Snapshot Manager for Microsoft and Site Recovery Manager. Very convincing stuff, Jody thanks very much for your time.
Also at the Dell EqualLogic stand we saw the new PS5500E, a 4U chassis which can house 48TB storage. A very cool new SAN which delivers a high storage density in a relatively small enclosure.
Al-in-all a very interesting and valueable day.
