San Francisco in spring—what a great time to visit the city by the bay. You can ride a cable car, catch an SF Giants game, or just take a long walk on the beach. This spring is also a great time to join tens of thousands of like-minded cloud folk at Google Cloud Next 2019, taking place at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, April 9–11, 2019.

 

I hope to see you there, because this event is an invaluable opportunity to gain practical insights and hear success stories from IT professionals and executives who are facing challenges similar to yours. This event will be particularly helpful for cloud architects, application owners, site reliability engineers, developers, data scientists, and many others. And if you’re interested in Kubernetes, Kubernetes Application Lifecycle Management, persistent file storage in the cloud, NAS as a service, cloud infrastructure monitoring, or speeding up your move to the cloud, then you should come to the NetApp cloud booth #1135 in the Moscone Center South Hall to learn about the latest innovative cloud data services from NetApp and Google Cloud.
