Hi Nug-gets! Thanks again for coming along last month, we hope you have put your "Nug-Life" stickers to good use.

Also a big thank you to Mark from VMware for presenting last month. Can't wait to see how VMware and NetApp will work together with their joint customers to better help meet those cloudy challenges.

This month we are very pleased to have Tony Williamson (Cloud Architect - Platforms and Storage) from Digital Sense to come and chat to us about Object Storage and NetApp StorageGrid.

Tony has worked in the service provider space in Brisbane for a number of years and specializes in Cloud and Cloud Data solutions such as Object Stores and large scale file environments, helping customers to over come their unstructured data challenges.

Digital Sense have recently gone down the path of StorageGrid and Tony is going to come and talk to us about -

• What is Storage Grid?
• Why Storage Grid was chosen over other products
• Ingestion progress and Information lifecycle management
• Physical vs virtual implantation.
• API Gateways vs F5.

Finally Tony will Cover off Fabric Pools and DataLakes helping you to better understand how StorageGrid and Object Stores can help transform your business and make it easier to Manage your Data.

As always we'll also cover off all things new regarding NetApp. But mostly importantly come and chat with your peers our "NetApp Ninjas!" and see how they are solving their challenges and what they have learned along the way. Please come with an open mind and be prepared to share.

Only rule - No Sales Guys :)

Please come along for Pizza and Beers and your chance to win a cool "secret" lucky door prize! So if you want it you'll have to come along to find out what it is :)
