VMblog: As a Citrix Synergy 2018 sponsor, give us the rundown of your booth setup this year.
StorMagic: StorMagic is a bronze sponsor of this year's event, we're on booth #503, just south of the Citrix stand. Make sure you pop by the booth and meet the team: Bruce Kornfeld, CMO; John Glendenning, SVP Sales & Business Development; Conner Volpe, Field Sales Executive and Lee Bushen, Partner Enablement Manager.
VMblog: What message should an attendee take back with them to their boss after visiting your booth? How can they internally sell your technology?
StorMagic: Deploying Citrix workloads at edge sites can be time-consuming and expensive. StorMagic's virtual SAN software helps partners and users build simple, cost-effective and flexible hyperconverged appliances that are ready to run Citrix. We'll be making an exciting announcement at Synergy that makes the deployment and management process even easier - watch this space!
VMblog: Why should a Synergy attendee add you to their MUST SEE list?
StorMagic: StorMagic is launching something very exciting at the show, in partnership with Cisco. All will be revealed at the StorMagic booth at Citrix Synergy on May 7th.

StorMagic: In addition to getting the chance to meet the awesome StorMagic team, you'll be able to see a live demo of Citrix workloads running on a hyperconverged appliance and get a feel for how this might work in your environment.
Feeling hands on? Demos of the new StorMagic/ Cisco offering will also be running in the booth.
