Data Protection – Getting Dressed Up for Cisco Live Milan

Milan, famous for many things, but perhaps the most talked about is its position as a major world fashion and design capital…and of course acting as the host city to Cisco Live Europe 2014.

So it was suggested that our EMC booth staff should dress the part. Top designers were sought for this special assignment, many designs were inspected, and below you can see an example of just one of the finalists modeled by a collection of EMC System Engineer’s.

Milan Hi-Fashion

While we’re telling you now that we *might* have new shirts for the new season of events, you’ll have to wait until the show to hear what’s new with Data Protection and Availability at EMC.

Our EMC Booth (D1), located at the front of the Solution Hall, will be hard not to miss. Starting at 10:30am each day from Tuesday 28th Jan – Thursday 30th Jan we will have dedicated Data Protection and Availability staff available to help you with all your questions.

You can also catch our team presenting on two adjacent booths; Intel and VCE both will feature dedicated presentations on how Data Protection from EMC forms an integral part of joint solution offerings. Hear from our team in the VCE booth at 12:15 each day and at 11:30am each day in the Intel booth. What will you learn? Well I don’t want to spoil the announcement but it will involve a major upgrade from our side of the house, allowing you to meet your backup windows and speed up your recovery process in a converged infrastructure.

We must not forget our activity with Cisco – catch our joint presentation in the Main Hall at 11:30am on Thursday. We will be discussing how you can transform your data centre with EMC VSPEX and Cisco Technology. This will be followed by an online webcast at 15:00 CET where those of you not at the show can listen to Karl Connolly from EMC discuss a similar topic (Go Karl, Go Karl, it’s your birthday, have a party – we can hardly wait!).

Did someone say P-A-R-T-Y? Why yes – Cisco Live would not be the same without a party! You will have to stop by the EMC Booth on Tuesday and Wednesday to get your ticket to the party on Wednesday night. However it’s first come, first serve with a strict limit on the numbers.

As ever we’ll be covering all of these events on social media so follow us on Twitter @EMCBackup for all the latest updates and news, and tweet to us and let us know how we’re doing!…oh and look out to see if we changed our shirts. 😉
