Like the old C:Drive event, the Dell Storage Forum was a chance for solution providers and their customers to attend together.
Some solution providers went all out. Long-term Compellent partner and now Dell partner Davenport Group of St. Paul, Minn., brought five people who took the opportunity to meet with customers such as John Loy of the South Carolina Attorney General's office (standing on left), a Davenport customer and Compellent user.
Davenport attendees included CEO Sonia St. Charles and Dallas McMillen, account executive, standing in the rear. Seated in front, (from the left), were Paul Clifford, president; Brandon Cole, account executive; and Bill Parker, senior systems engineer.
