Twenty-two Media & Entertainment IT professional filled the room at the Morton’s Steakhouse in Beverly Hills, CA for our first ever Media & Entertainment focused Storage dinner last month. Attendees came from major production companies and networks such as Megatrax, Lion Gate, Disney Fox, NBC and the Tennis Channel.
Our expert presenter, Tom Coughlin covered topics ranging from LTFS to active archives to HDDs and SSDs. The feedback what overwhelmingly positive the dinner was described by attendees as “beyond their expectations” and the information was “on the cutting edge of technology”. For many this information was timely – over 1/3 of the audience said their storage infrastructure capacity is either a major or urgent concern.
I want to thanks our 4 brave sponsors Oracle, Dot Hill, Quantum and NetApp who shared their insights and expertise with the audience. I think they all benefited greatly for agreeing to be a first mover on this first time event. One sponsor told us that “we got the right people in the room and it was one of the best events he’s ever done”! Music to my ears….
Not surprisingly we are taking our Media & Entertainment dinner on the road to New York City on November 12th. I would be happy to discuss ways we can help more vendors grow their exposure to this audience and capitalize on the incredible data growth opportunities in this market. We still have a couple of spots left in New York!
