LISA18: Advanced Concepts in Data Storage

Sponsored by Cambridge Computer

Join us on October 29, 2018, at the Omni Hotel Nashville, for LISA Advanced Concepts in Data Storage Day. This one-day event focuses on current trends in the storage industry. Registration is a free add-on to either LISA18 conference admission or LISA18 Expo-only admission in order to introduce newcomers to the LISA conference. The goal of LISA Data Storage Day is to explain the trends and developments in the storage industry in the language spoken by hands-on IT professionals. Other events tend to glaze over how and why specific products or technologies work, focusing instead on the business value. However, at LISA Data Storage Day, we'll provide a peek under the proverbial hood—making it easier to match technology to business value—creating a unique event that's well worth a day out of the office!
