VMblog:  As a VMworld 2017 sponsor, how can people find you this year?  How many people are you sending?

StarWind:  We'll be at VMworld with a 10x10 booth #1132 near the lounge zone. We'll be represented by a team of eight members, including technical experts who can answer any questions on our product line.

VMblog:  And is there anything unique about this year's booth setup?

StarWind:  This year, we will be focusing on presenting our new storage solution for enterprises. It is infinitely scalable, ultimately resilient and high-performing, and what is really important it's power- and cost-efficient. We'll provide a demo and answer all questions considering the features and benefits that our new product delivers to enterprises.

VMblog:  Can you give readers a few reasons why your product or service is considered unique?

StarWind:  The amount of data is growing every day and companies need to expand their storage systems to maintain it. The problem is, that traditional systems are extremely expensive in terms of scaling and maintenance, and they lack resiliency. The new solution by StarWind is an infinitely scalable storage platform built on off-the-shelf, low-power, "disposable" components. It greatly reduces scaling and operational expenses with 10x lower infrastructure, cooling and power costs while providing ultimate resiliency to multiple simultaneous component failures.

VMblog:  Why should a VMworld attendee add you to their MUST SEE list?

StarWind:  Looking for a "green" storage solution that scales simply up to petabyte level, provides ultimate performance and resiliency? We've got it! Visit our booth and check how it works.

VMblog:  What do you like most about sponsoring VMworld?

StarWind:  It's a great event and a unique opportunity to share experience and present new technologies. It's also a great chance to get involved with the audience and IT professionals to provide them with solutions that fully meet their needs.

VMblog:  Can you give VMblog readers a sneak peek as to what you will be showing off at your booth this year?

StarWind:  We'll be presenting our enterprise storage solution. VMworld attendees will have an exclusive opportunity to become the first to see the demo of our new product, its features and functionality.

VMblog:  How does your company and product fit within the VMware ecosystem?

StarWind:  StarWind products run on multiple hypervisors, including VMware ESXi, making it really easy for customers who are using VMware, to integrate our solutions into their infrastructures.

VMblog:  What are you looking forward to most at VMworld this year?

StarWind:  We are excited to present our new product and get a feedback from the audience. It's a great chance to get engaged with new customers and show them how our solutions satisfy their needs.

VMblog:  What would you say to prospective attendees who are thinking about attending VMworld but aren't sure if it's worth it or not?

StarWind:  VMworld is a place where everyone can find what he really needs, be it new customers, solutions or an expert opinion.

VMblog:  What do you hope to come away with from exhibiting at VMworld this year?

StarWind:  We really appreciate the opportunity to get connected with other companies and share experience. And we really hope to come away from VMworld hearing people saying: "StarWind - that's what I really need."  

VMblog:  Do you have any tips for first time attendees of VMworld that you'd like to share?

StarWind:  Attend! It's a great show, lots of opportunities and networking. Besides, it's really fun.

VMblog:  Finally, attendees always enjoy a good trade show tchotchke.  Are you guys giving away anything special or interesting this year?

StarWind:  Come to our booth! You won't get bored, that's for sure! We'll have different raffles and great prizes for you!


You heard it here folks!  Make sure you visit the StarWind booth 1132 at VMworld.  You'll learn a lot, you'll get a sneak peek at their technology, there will be raffles and prizes, and you won't be bored!
