Our 9th Annual S3 Xpo will be hosted at Porsche Experience Centre, Silverstone

S3 Xpo is a fantastic opportunity for attendees to meet with some of the best known and respected names in the IT industry, as well as new innovators that we expect to break through into the mainstream.

The event will demonstrate how S3, part of Capita plc, and its technology partners can help you deliver more from your existing IT infrastructure.

Topics covered at the event will include:

  • Disruptive Storage
  • Data Lakes
  • Object Storage
  • Hyper-Converged & Converged Infrastructure
  • Software Defined Storage

Throughout the day there will be presentations and forums to address the issues and implications associated with business continuity and data centre virtualisation.

At the end of the day attendees will also get the change to enjoy a high adrenaline passenger ride around the Silverstone circuit.*

The day promises to deliver an added insight into any infrastructure decisions you may be considering as well as demonstrating how S3 has been delivering a competitive edge for over 25 years.

*Passenger rides are limited and will be allocated on a first come first serve basis on the day of the event.

Tintri & Ventrus

Tintri offers both all-flash and hybrid-flash storage platforms—but the VM-aware storage difference stems from our software. That means you will never deal with LUNs, volumes or other remnants of outdated storage. Instead, all analytics and actions work at the VM-level to keep storage simple. Also, our VAS architecture introduces benefits only available from Tintri. Scale-out from terabytes to petabytes with less than one employee. Set quality of service (QoS) thresholds for critical VMs, and save costs by running multiple, concurrent hypervisors on one platform.

Today data storage is more than just archiving; it’s about providing ways to analyse information, understand patterns and behaviour, to re-live experiences and memories. It’s about harnessing stored information for growth and innovation. Seagate is building on its heritage of storage leadership to solve the challenge of getting more out of the living information that’s produced everyday. What began with one storage innovation has morphed into many systems and solutions becoming faster, more reliable and expansive. No longer is it just about storing information; it is about accessing and interpreting information quickly, accurately and securely.
