  3. Meeting notice from Pure Storage:

    Pure Storage will be speaking at the Green Bay VMUG Thursday April 5th and we are hoping to see you there! Please join us at the Radisson Hotel and Conference Center in Green Bay, WI by registering through the following link:


    Pure Storage, the all-flash enterprise storage company, enables the broad deployment of flash in the data center. When compared to traditional disk-centric arrays, Pure Storage all-flash arrays are 10X faster and 10x more space and power efficient at a price point that is less than performance disk on a per gigabyte stored basis. The Pure Storage FlashArray is ideal for high performance workloads, including server virtualization, desktop virtualization (VDI), database (OLTP, real-time analytics) and cloud computing. For more information, visit http://www.purestorage.com.

    Please let us know if you’re interested in speaking to our folks while
    you’re there or conversely, if you can’t make it to the event, we’re happy
    to schedule a seperate webinar for you to learn more. Please let us know either way.

    Look forward to it!

    Kind Regards,
