Load DynamiX CEO Philippe Vincent to Present at Nexenta OpenSDx Summit 2015

Will discuss how pre-deployment storage performance validation will be key to successful adoption of software defined storage (SDS)

SAN FRANCISCO--()--Load DynamiX today announced that CEO Philippe Vincent will be presenting at the annual Nexenta OpenSDx Summit, one of the technology industry’s leading executive forums, on Thursday, September 3rd, at the St. Regis Hotel, in San Francisco. Attendees will spend a full day listening to thought-provoking discussions on emerging Open Source and Software-Defined Data Center technologies and their ability to deliver innovation, business agility, and competitive advantage to the marketplace.

“Software Defined Storage solutions such as Nexenta’s OpenSDx enable a new generation of low-cost storage infrastructure that leverages commodity-based hardware. But by shifting away from traditional storage systems, IT organizations are now taking on more of the integration and performance validation responsibilities typically delivered by the traditional storage vendors,” said Vincent. “At Nexenta OpenSDx Summit 2015, I’ll be discussing how IT organizations can mitigate that transition risk with highly accurate workload modeling and storage performance validation solutions that empower users with the data and confidence to fully realize the benefits of OpenSDx.”

“We are honored to be joined by Mr. Vincent at our OpenSDx Summit this year,” said Tarkan Maner, Chairman and CEO at Nexenta. “Just as in years past, our Summit is a tremendous platform for sharing disruptive ideas, solutions, success stories, and top-tier networking between leading tech insiders, investors and analysts.
