Come and join us in Sydney for the next Systems Technical University covering IBM Z, Power and Storage. Over 100 sessions covering introductions, deep dives, lab sessions and case studies.
Top 5 reasons to come and join us :
I will be putting up a series of posts detailing the storage speakers, whom I asked to complete this simple questionnaire, so for starters, here are my answers.
Who are you and what do you do in IBM?
Barry Whyte, IBM Master Inventor and Advanced Technical Support for Asia Pacific. With 20+ years of development background in IBM Storage I help out our technical sales teams in region, and worldwide, evangelising IBM Spectrum Virtualize, in all its forms. Performance expert, and technical crit-sit management are just a few of my day to day rolls.
What are you going to talk about in Sydney?
I have a few sessions, mainly covering the new Data Reduction Pools in great detail, as well as roadmap sessions for Virtualize and will be helping co-ordinate at the Think Tank sessions.
Whats your favorite thing about IBM's TechU's?
Getting to catch up with friends, clients and meet new clients - getting to understand the real business issues that people have - so as to help mold the products in the right direction, as well as helping to educate everyone about hopefully interesting topics!
Whats your favorite you tube video?
Not so much a single video, but as a hobby I experiment with electronic music, building a home studio, and I find the reviews and podcats by SonicState really useful... PWM...
Over the next few days/weeks I'll post the answers from the rest of the international, and local speakers.
Look forward to seeing you in Sydney in August.
