May meeting - 5/21 - 6pm EST

This months meeting will take place on Wednesday, the 21st and is being hosted at the Windstream Data Center in Raleigh. Start time is 6pm EST. Please let me know if you plan to attend and the name of any guests that you may bring, as with SAS last month you will need to be registered with security. And if anyone is interested in a tour of the facility (prior to the meeting) be sure to let me know as well and definitely hope to see you there! Departure Dr, Raleigh, NC 27616

This month we have another exciting speaker lined up, Mr. Said Ouissal. Previously of Ericsson and Juniper, Said is now the VP of Product Management and Strategy at Violin Memory. Topic of discussion is leveraging PowerShell for management of the new Violin WFA! Exciting and certain to be very informative, we're very fortunate to have him presenting.

    Richard gave us an awesome tour of their top notch establishment, and the Violin Memory reps really opened my eyes with their high performance array.

      Violin does make solid products, I know from experience and any discussion on storage should include them in my opinion. Very impressed with the WFA and the WindStream datacenter!

    * So, I'm not doing a presentation?
    * I would be interested in a tour. How early do I need to arrive for that?

    Quick reminder about the meeting tomorrow night and a slight change, Mr. Ouissal is delivering the keynote for an IaaS conference Thursday morning (in California) so has asked to meet us at a later date. This meeting we will have Mr. Ken Moreau (Principal Systems Engineer - Violin Memory), and Mrs. Erica Emerson (also of Violin) presenting. Ken and Erica are both great people and very knowledgeable, this promises to be another great meeting. And catering will be provided too of course! Sandwiches from either of Jimmy Johns or Jasons Deli, to be determined as yet but from one or the other and courtesy of Violin Memory.
