Storage News Week Issue 8

Busy week, F1 was great until Ricciardo was robbed of his 2nd place. Also there was the big announcement of the SC4020 in APJ.

Firstly, the SC4020 was launched in Sydney on Monday. The 911 has loads of good info in it but also here are some other links. The press articles are rather underwhelming.

Stuff from around the place from these last 7 days. A bit light on as we’ve been busy saying farewell to a lot of friends recently but time to rock out with our sock out. Also, I send out an internal version of this and it was very internal heavy, like a … umm […]

    Dell Enterprise Forum – Seminar Series is travelling around Australia.

Dell Enterprise Forum – Seminar Series is travelling around Australia.

The Australian Dell Enterprise Forum (DEF) last year was a fantastic day down in Melbourne. Heaps of good sessions, lots of customers and maybe one or two chilled beverages.

Good news everybody […]
