What is EMC World?…To me…


I get asked by my friends and family not in the tech business what is EMC World & why am I so excited to attend.

EMC World was just a thought but I was fortunate to win a registration into this conference from EMC Symmetrix group via a Twitter contest. Not that I wouldn’t attend but for my personal situation trying to explain to Maura why I want to spend $2k+ on a week long conference and not a family vacation wouldn’t fly to well.  So starting Sunday May 9th 2010 I will be experiencing this “Superbowl of Storage” as stated by Stuart Miniman of EMC.

What is EMC World?

 EMC answer: I checked http://www.emcworld.com and clicked into the overview page.

What is EMC World to me?

 My perception of EMC World is a place where I can solidify connections that I have made in the “Virtual world” & to learn on subjects that interest me.

I’m just getting started into the whole storage front and have ALOT to learn but it fascinates me so much.

My posts covering EMC World  are going to be based off exactly what I am, a new comer to the Storage Industry and a 1st time EMC World Attendee.
