Next week, our co-founder, CTO and EVP of products and technology, Dave
Husak, will be heading to Arrow’s Internet of Things Immersions Conference
to participate in two panels. The event will be held on March 26 at the Hynes
Convention Center in Boston, MA.
The first panel Husak will join will weigh in on the topic “Bringing Data
to Life: How to Turn Data Intelligence into Actionable Sales Growth.” Husak
will be joined on this panel by other industry thought leaders from Arrow,
EMC, Intel, NXP and Oracle. Husak and the other panelists will analyze how to
effectively harness massive amounts of sales data and turn it into something
actionable and meaningful for their organization. He’ll follow up this
panel with a general panel at 6:50 as part of the Innovator’s Showcase.

I spent last week at the Strata + Hadoop World Conference in New York City

last 6 months we’ve seen demand for a “big data” based network

recently trying to better understand the evolving market and technology
landscape and use cases. I’m particularly interested in how network
infrastructure can drive a better experience for users of big data
applications, or networking/infrastructure teams that need to support these
applications, but ulti... (more)
We’re a few short days away from VMworld’s return to the Moscone Center
in San Francisco. Our team will be in booth 747 (hence the jumbo-jet below),
to demo our products and answer any questions you might have about our
products – including the new datacenter transport fabric and Big Data
fabric. Stop by the booth or send us a tweet to @PlexxiInc and we’ll catch
up for a quick chat.
You never know exactly what to expect at VMworld, but our own Mike Bushong
took a few educated guesses this week on the Plexxi blog. We’ll revisit his
thoughts after the conference to see where ... (more)
If you’ve been keeping up with Plexxi, you know we’re proud of our roots
on the East Coast. However, we have exciting news this week for the West
Coast contingent of our team. Our San Francisco team has just moved to into
the communal office space called WeWork (the SOMA one, not the Golden Gate
one). Stay tuned for more as we get settled in there.
In this week’s PlexxiTube video, Dan Backman comments on how Plexxi’s

standalone pi... (more)
