Well tomorrow begins my annual trek to EMC World. This year I’m headed back to Orlando as EMC World is being held at the Orange County Convention Center. As I’ve done the last couple of years I’ll post as often as I can during the conference both on here on my blog, as well as on Twitter.
This years EMC World event should be a blast and very educational. They’ve got tons of sessions on VMware, and one that I’m really looking forward to on setting up Exchange under VMware using a CLARiiON for the storage. This is something that I was hoping to get done before EMC World, but when I saw that session on the schedule I decided to hold off on our Exchange Migration until afterwords so that I could get some additional best practices first.
I’m also looking forward to the sessions that I’ve found about SQL Server on the CLARiiON. I haven’t found all that many of these up there, something that I’ll be sure to mention in my eval this year as I would assume tha the bulk of data stored on SANs is database data, and contrary to popular believe database servers are not file servers and should not be treated as such.
If you will be at EMC World come on over and say hi. I’ll be on twitter so shoot me a message or a DM or find me in the Web 2 lounge or the EMC returning attendees lounge, or the exhibit hall somewhere.
Don’t forget to check back here for photo’s of the event. I can’t upload in real time as my phone doesn’t have a camera, so I have to wait until I get back to the hotel or the convention center to upload them.
