Tape unplugged: The ExecEvent Announces its First Tape Summits in Europe

Partnering with IP EXPO and 'Powering the Cloud' events greatly enhances networking opportunities for technology executives

SANTA CLARA, Calif, London, UK and Frankfurt, GERMANY - October 2nd, 2012, The ExecEvent today announced its inaugural Tape Summit in Europe. The move to include European dates builds on the huge success of US based Tape Summit, traditionally run alongside NAB. The Tape Summit is a private event for the tape industry. Like the US events, the Tape Summits are co-located with leading industry events in Europe, IP EXPO and 'Powering the Cloud' events (incorporating SNW Europe, Datacenter Technologies and Virtualization World). They are exclusive, private, industry events aimed at the analyst, blogger and media community. Their aim is provide a platform to discuss and learn about tape-related storage trends from the market leaders who drive the future of software and hardware solutions designed for modern data storage demands.

The overall tape industry has undergone a lot of changes through the past decade. These summits provide for in-depth presentations from leading analysts and vendors on the trends for tape usage in backup, archive, disaster recovery and data security.

Tape Summit 2012 will put vendors and selected media delegates together for a complete analysis of the current state of this $2.3+ billion annual market. Details will be provided on new software application functionality as well as the continually evolving hardware functionality that is positioning tape to enjoy a healthy future and growth in many markets.

The tape industry vendors confirmed so far are: Active Archive Alliance, BDT, HP, IBM, Quantum, SpectraLogic and Tandberg Data. Other participating companies will be announced nearer the events.

Program highlights:

  • End-User Case Studies on Tape Usage

  • Exclusive access to new European tape industry research at both events

  • Industry Analyst or Pundit Keynote on the State of the Tape Industry

  • Each tape vendor will appear on an end-user facing Panel

  • Individual company briefings with delegates - as time and schedules allow

  • Networking cocktail reception(s) for all delegates and vendors

  • Tape Marketing Group presentation and discussion

  • De-Dupe and File System for Tape Discussion

Greg Duplessie, founder and CEO of The ExecEvent declares "the Tape Summit is a unique event in the data industry - created explicitly to share the successes and use cases of tape with media and analysts that cover the industry. The Summit is purposefully small and focused on tape, which allows some great interaction between our attendees." In addition to the informative presentations, there is ample time to meet, share information and form relations with top-level executives over cocktails and dinners.

"We are pleased to be hosting the first Tape Summit in mainland Europe as part of our conference programs. This further enhances our wide ranging partnerships with leading commentators and associations and reflects the importance of the 'Powering the Cloud' events in the IT calendar", Carly Stephens, Events Manager, SNW Europe.

Press, analyst and blogger member registration is complimentary.

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption.
