“In the present ecnomic downturn, storage virtualisation is like a vitamin syringe because it offers cost savings for businesses and growth potential for the channel. At the same time desktop, server and storage virtualisation technologies are becoming increasingly aggregated”, explains Iris Hatzenbichler, marketing & operations manager EMEA in DataCore.  “Within this climate we are holding our fourth partner and end user conference discussing both technical and sales opportunities but also unravelling some of the pitfalls that can surround virtualisation.  We are pleased that we have already received lots of registrations and international interest.” 
 
The virtualisation experts from Florida expect numerous visitors from across Europe and as such, will offer senior international representation from various company divisions and countries. At the top of the technical delegation, stands DataCore?s CTO and co-founder, Ziya Aral, who also brings product developers from Asia and the USA across to the Rhine Conference. Additionally sales and marketing representatives from France, Great Britain and Germany will be on hand throughout.
 
Recently introduced SANsymphony 7.0 and SANmelody 3.0 will be one of the key focusses. In presentations, workshops and best practice sessions, DataCore will inform and discuss in detail the new 64-bit versions as well as unravelling the ?Transporter? Software, that enables an uninterrupted migration between physical and virtual platforms.  Additionally, distribution partners ADN, Azlan, DNS and Magirus introduce concepts and offerings during the two-day conference.  The programme is completed with an outlook on DataCore?s roadmap by DataCore mastermind Ziya Aral.
