Tech Field Day is a whirlwind tour of Silicon Valley companies by a group of tech bloggers and journalists. DriveScale participated in the 12th such tour organized by Gestalt IT. Some of the other companies on the agenda for Tech Field Day 12 were Docker, Dell and EMC. We were excited to share our story with this terrific group of IT experts, get their reactions and see what they had to say about us.
And “say” they did! There were 235+ tweets from the panel and a number of blog posts chronicling the event.
I kicked off the meeting with a “family tree” of DriveScale’s founder’s backgrounds and a bit of Company Vision. The extensive and creative backgrounds of our founders got some strong reaction.
Next up, our Chief Scientist and Co-Founder, Tom Lyon did a deep dive on our product’s architecture. He took some shots at traditional technologies, which are obsolete with Scale-Out.
Then our Distinguished Engineer, Chris Unkle, made it all clear with a demo.
Another Co-Founder, our CTO Satya Nishtala, walked the group through our enabling hardware.
Then Tom came back for a discussion of future directions and introduced the concept of Cabbage Computing!
Finally, I wrapped things up with a discussion of the marketplace.
All in all it was a fun session, and we enjoyed getting into the technical weeds with the TFD delegates. Thanks to you all!
