S3 15XPO Round-up
29/06/15 | in: Event Roundup | by: Jack Blogg
This year we hosted our 8th Annual XPO at Mercedes Benz World, located on the historic Brooklands motor racing circuit at Weybridge in Surrey. For this year’s XPO we decided to focus on the challenges of data growth with a theme of ‘doing more with less’. Presentations on the day covered topics such as:
- Big Data
- Data Analytics
- Cloud Computing
- Business Continuity Planning
On the day we heard from a variety of vendors, including presentations such as Varonis who covered ‘Managing the Data Growth Explosion’ and also Cleversafe explaining ‘why RAID has had it’s day’. Following the presentations each guest received a high adrenaline passenger ride on the Mercedes circuit.
Clients were also given the opportunity to meet with the Secure, Intelligent Buildings and Connect practices of Capita Technology Solutions as well as the latest acquisition, Pervasive Networks. Thus providing access to expertise and skills of a full-service voice, networking, data centre and contact centre provider, as well as expertise in security, disaster recovery and business continuity.
Overall the day was a great success and gave our customers a chance to meet face to face with our vendors and be updated with the latest and greatest technology in the storage world. We are now busy planning for next year’s 9th S3 XPO. We hope to see you there next year!
