Come see us at Microsoft TechEd in New Orleans!

The Dell Data Protection team is busy this week with not one, but TWO conferences.


We are at the Dell Enterprise Forum in Santa Clara. We have a booth, and folks available to talk to you about all of Dell’s data protection products – AppAssure, NetVault, vRanger, and LiteSpeed. We also have several sessions – so if you are in Santa Clara and want to know more about backing up your environment, come find one of us.


We are also in the Dell booth at Microsoft TechEd in New Orleans – actually that’s where I am! Come by and say hi. If you are looking for the big Quest booth that is normally at TechEd – remember Quest is now part of Dell. So if you are looking for software like NetVault, vRanger, or LiteSpeed come see us in the Dell booth.


There is more going on in the booth than data protection - we are showcasing many of the Quest and hardware solutions that can help you manage your company's data. Today (Wed June 5) is packed with activity!


We have short technical presentations in the Dell Booth. Come by, hear about our solutions, and get a ticket for our raffle - an XPS 10 tablet that we'll give away on Thursday. Here's the schedule for Wed:
