Storage Field Day 21 – Wrap-up and Link-o-rama

Disclaimer: I recently attended Storage Field Day 21.  My flights, accommodation and other expenses were paid for by Tech Field Day. There is no requirement for me to blog about any of the content presented and I am not compensated in any way for my time at the event.  Some materials presented were discussed under NDA and don’t form part of my blog posts, but could influence future discussions.

This is a quick post to say thanks once again to Stephen and Ben, and the presenters at Storage Field Day 21. I had a great time. For easy reference, here’s a list of the posts I did covering the events (they may not match the order of the presentations).

Storage Field Day 21 – I’ll Be At Storage Field Day 21

Storage Field Day 21 – (Fairly) Full Disclosure

Back To The Future With Tintri

Hammerspace, Storageless Data, And One Tough Problem

MinIO – Cloud, Edge, Everywhere …

Also, here’s a number of links to posts by my fellow delegates (in no particular order). They’re all very smart people, and you should check out their stuff, particularly if you haven’t before. I’ll attempt to keep this updated as more posts are published. But if it gets stale, the Storage Field Day 21 landing page will have updated links.
