VALLEY VIEW IS BACK -- SEPTEMBER 26!
Join us on September 26 for Valley View, our exciting live video show. Join us on September 26 for Valley View, our exciting live video show. In addition to an exclusive chat with NetSuite CEO Zach Nelson, and an in-studio interview with CitiGroup CTO Yobie Benjamin, we'll feature our new Elevator Pitch session, a rapid-fire deluge of information about new technology approaches.
One company's elevator pitch we'll be highlighting: Fusion-io.
Gary Orenstein, Fusion-io's senior VP of Product says his company's purpose is to make the world's data go faster. Data is everywhere -- the cloud, the web -- but it's on disk, which is too slow for many of today's demanding data needs. With Fusion-io's IoDrives and Ion Data Accelerator software, data center managers can build solid-state, flash-based storage arrays across physical and virtual servers more cost effectively. Orenstein says Fusion-io is doing lots of work in organizations using Oracle, Microsoft and MySQL databases, and is also starting to see some big data deployments using MongoDB. We'll hear Orenstein boil all of this down into his 3-minute elevator pitch on Valley View.
Other Elevator Pitches featured: Appthority (Mobile Security), Crowdstrike (Enterprise Security), Cliqr (Cloud Management), Kontiki (Enterprise Video).
