Six weeks have passed since the completion of the SolidFire acquisition by NetApp. Many of us at SolidFire EMEA, are returning back to NetApp — or “boomeranging” back, as it has been called!

We are busy preparing for our first event post-acquisition: Cloud Expo Europe. The event takes place 12-13 April.

Both SolidFire and NetApp had stands booked at Cloud Expo Europe. So just like the Run DMC/Aerosmith ‘Walk This Way’ video, we have kicked the wall down and joined forces! Come see us both in one location at stand 441 at ExCeL London.

What can you expect to hear at the stand?

All about the broadest all-flash portfolio in the storage industry. This, of course, includes the best of everything SolidFire has to offer for people building clouds and building their next generation data centre. Combine that with the NetApp data fabric vision, allowing customers to move seamlessly into the cloud, and we are a stop worth making while at the show.

It would not be SolidFire, though, without the socks. Our ‘sock fabric’ vision has recently been upgraded, and the stand will feature the latest generation Sock 3.0, which launched to great fanfare and plaudits last month. Stop by stand 441 for your pair, and tweet along with us using #UnstoppableSocks.

Make sure you ‘Walk This Way’ to stand 441 and visit the #UnstoppableForce of NetApp and SolidFire together. Get your socks and learn all about how NetApp and SolidFire can help transform your data centre.
