LOS GATOS, Calif., Oct. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Storwize, provider of capacity optimization without compromise, today announced that CEO Ed Walsh will be presenting at SNW Fall 2009.


    --  Session Title: Reducing Online Storage Costs in Virtualized

    --  Event Date: Tuesday, Oct. 13, 2009

    --  Time: 5:05 p.m. MST

    --  Location: JW Marriott Desert Ridge in Phoenix, AZ

    --  Session Description: More than 1/3 of companies deploying
    virtualization experience increased storage requirements and
    associated floor space, storage management, and power and cooling
    requirements, all potentially negating the savings created by
    deploying virtualization. In this session you'll learn how capacity
    optimization for primary storage can address this storage challenge by
    delivering up to 10x more capacity from your existing storage foot
    print creating financial, operational, and environmental benefits
    from primary storage thru backup.

    In addition, Storwize Senior Vice President of Marketing Peter Smails
    will be presenting on primary storage capacity optimization:

    Panel Title: Primary Storage: The New Frontier for Data Deduplication
        Moderator: Arun Taneja
        Panelists: Jered Floyd, Val Bercovici, Carter George and Peter Smails

    --  Event Date: Tuesday, Oct. 13, 2009

    --  Time: 2:10 p.m. MST

    --  Location: JW Marriott Desert Ridge in Phoenix, AZ

    --  Session Description: The spotlight has been on data reduction for
    the past several years. All this focus has been on the backup/restore
    side.  But what about elimination of duplication for primary storage
    where the larger expense is today? The panel of experts have all
    implemented some form of primary storage capacity optimization
    technology, perhaps in addition to data deduplication on the
    secondary storage.  What is the initial experience of these panelists?
    How is the technology different from that used on the backup side?
    How should the user determine if the time is right to consider
    primary storage optimization? These issues will be discussed by
    the panelists?
