Virtualisation to feature at Datastor Forum

Datastor’s growing emphasis on virtualisation technology will be reflected in this year’s Forum event, to be held in Auckland and Wellington in early May.

The distributor has recently adopted two virtualisation products: Pano Logic’s virtual desktop device and a power-over-Ethernet wall mounted thin client from ChipPC. “We see that whole area exploding for us,” says sales and marketing manager Dave Rosenberg.

Datastor says ChipPC’s JackPC will suit education institutions, banks and libraries providing public access points. The device is supported by ChipPC’s Remote Xcalibur global management software.

Although there is no theme for the 2009 Forum, there will be a “big push” around virtualisation technology, says Rosenberg, adding some of its vendors are set to make announcements in this area.

Vendors set to exhibit this year are VMware, Riverbed, CA, Lenovo, Juniper Networks, Symantec and APC.

Rosenberg says the distributor was approached about exhibiting by vendors outside its portfolio, but will mainly restrict the event to those currently on its books.

Economist Dr Michael O’Connor is a keynote speaker this year. He has been an advisor to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation’s global development programme, is a Companion of the Institute of Management and was the Plc Entrepreneur of the Year in 2002.

Nearly 200 registrations had been received at the time of writing, with about 500 people attending last year’s event.
