More support for TechTalks

by Alastair on July 27, 2015

It’s always great to welcome back our long term sponsors. The latest returning sponsor is Infinio who are supporting the #vBrownBag TechTalks at VMworld USA this year. Infinio have a downloadable storage acceleration product that can breathe new life into a tired array. With a 30 day trial and no downtime to deploy it’s easy to give a try.
