Needham’s Next-Gen Storage/Networking Conference

November 05, 2015

At this annual conference, Needham will bring together the top thought leaders in storage, from components to traditional arrays, from hybrid solutions to all-flash systems and hyper-converged architectures. In Networking, we expect to hear from leading companies addressing the broader themes of software defined networking (SDN) and network function virtualization (NFV), as well as more specific technologies such as Networking as a Service, DPI, ADC, IMS and Hosted UC, among others. 2015 has seen dramatic topline growth within these next generation players in particular as these technologies continue to gain share from legacy applications and help bring the data center into the 21st Century. We expect the 2015 installment of our NextGen Storage/Networking Conference to once again illuminate these topics and others for our institutional clients. One-on-one meetings will be available for qualified investors during the course of the day. This conference is by invitation only. Please contact your Needham salesperson for registration details as space will be limited.
