"....Coraid can reduce the complexity and CAPEX costs associated with their data storage, management and backup..." - Doug Dooley, VP of Product Management at Conraid

CIOsynergy, a provider of thought-leading conferences, today announced Coraid’s participation at its upcoming event on January 30, 2014 at the Westin Dallas Park Central in Texas.

Leveraging the economics of off-the-shelf hardware, layer-2 Ethernet, and software-based storage management, Coraid’s building-block architecture scales out easily to provide enterprises with flexible, on-demand storage to handle massive data growth.

“We look forward to CIOsynergy as an excellent opportunity to advise CIOs and other network professionals about how Coraid can reduce the complexity and CAPEX costs associated with their data storage, management, and backup,” said Dave Kresse, CEO at Coraid. “With its smart, modular architecture and adeptness with multiple workloads Coraid’s scale-out solutions take the expensive guesswork out of growing centralized datacenters and distributed cloud, virtualization, and big data environments.”

CIOsynergy Dallas is an exclusive opportunity for leading local CIO and IT executives to network and brainstorm daily hurdles in an unparalleled learning environment under the umbrella of tech titan keynote of the event Robert Herjavec. Mr. Herjavec has lived the classic rags-to riches story. At the age of eight, Herjavec and his family left Croatia, sailing to Canada in hopes of creating better life. They arrived in Toronto with a single suitcase, no job prospects, $20 to their name, and dreams of success. Herjavec shared his parent’s dreams, and has had no limits. From delivering newspapers to waiting on tables to launching a computer company from his basement, Mr. Herjavec applied his immense energy and ambition with outstanding success. The firms he created proved so outstanding in their operation that they attracted companies such as AT&T and Nokia, who purchased them from Herjavec to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars.

Following a short retirement Robert launched the Herjavec Group with a focus on security, storage and virtualization. The Herjavec Group finished 2012 with extraordinary – placing it on the prestigious Profit 200 Ranking of Canada’s fastest growing companies for the fifth year in a row, and earning the #1 ranking as the Top Security Company in Canada on the 2012 Edition of the Branham300. Robert Herjavec, TV personality (Dragon’s Den & the very popular Shark Tank) and bestselling author (Driven & recently released – The Will To Win) will give CIOsynergy attendees an unparalleled view of his journey to become one of the world’s top innovative minds.

At CIOsynergy Dallas, a panel of leading CIOs (moderated by Scott Shuster) will share and explore how CIOs can succeed in their role. Mr. Shuster has led virtually every Business Week CEO, CFO, and CIO conference held since the founding of the magazine’s events group, hosting more than 100 of the world’s most prominent gatherings of large company leaders and senior executives.

Open to Fortune 500’s and mid-market enterprise, CIOsynergy’s events gathers senior executives from the office of the CIO, including Directors, VPs, Chief Architects, CTOs and CIOs.
