What's NetApp's current thinking in terms of its NetApp Insight conference, typically held in the Fall. Are you still hoping to do a live conference? Or are you starting to consider alternatives?

Our Insight EMEA event we just completed a couple weeks ago was a completely virtual event. It was an incredible event.

We're evaluating our options. NetApp has extended our work from home out through the end of October. So between now and then I wouldn't expect us to be also driving any big partner or end-customer in-person events. We're certainly looking at how we engage virtually. But for me personally, the channel's a people business. I can't wait to get the restrictions lifted and get back on planes to go be with my partners, and I look forward to when we are able to renew our in-person events.
