The seminar I am taking at IP Expo addresses head-on the reality of the issues facing companies when it comes to managing huge amounts of data.

The seminar is scheduled to run from 10:30 - 11:15am in the Flash Storage Lab theatre, entitled Why 20-Site UK Manufacturing Business Deployed Nimble Storage Flash-Optimised Solution will be presented by Phil Davies, Senior Systems Engineer, Nimble Storage and Wayne Fairhurst, IT Infrastructure Services Manager, Tulip Ltd. Tulip has 20 sites spread around the UK with 8,000 employees producing brands such as Danepak, Adams and Spam for major supermarkets and retailers.

Wayne from Tulip will be telling the audience at IP Expo about the importance and necessity of flash based storage for a national business with 20 sites. In particular, he will discuss how using Nimble Storage and its single appliance has benefitted the business by simplifying data management through scalability and capability to meet their needs. The 8,000 employees are brought together through “one way of working” using the Nimble Storage system to integrate the company in terms of culture, sense of belonging, collaboration, technical support, skills, business risk, scalabilty and business continuity.

Wayne Fairhurst: "The seminar I am taking at IP Expo addresses head-on the reality of the issues facing companies when it comes to managing huge amounts of data. With the increase in information available and required across the board, pressures on showing a return on investment and the increasing need to decrease carbon footprints, I will be discussing how using solutions like Nimble Storage has enabled us to run more efficiently as well as integrate our existing infrastructure without relying on back-up technology. It also allows us to be prepared for future growth and expansion within the business.”
