Charles Curran and Farah Giga Host Valhalla StorageFest℠ II in New York City

We’re very pleased with the response from our companies and our friends in the storage ecosystem to our invitation to StorageFest℠ II, to be held in New York City on January 10, 2012.

We conceived the event as an intimate gathering where players from different parts of the ecosystem – customers, OEMs, startup vendors, investors, analysts, and Big Data users of storage systems – could meet for an evening and discuss broad topics for the industry.

Our first StorageFest℠ was held last January in Palo Alto, and drew more than 30 participants. StorageFest℠ II has twice more than 60 planning to attend. The caliber of the attendees and the overwhelming response to our invitation makes us confident that it will emerge as a “must-attend” infrastructure industry event.

If you have questions about the event, please contact Sara Endicott at or at 703-663-4943.
