Quotes from some participating companies:

  • Oded Nagel, CEO, Ctera
    “2023 marked a record-breaking year for Ctera, with award-winning enhancements to our enterprise file services platform, emphasizing cyber resiliency and compliance. We’re eager to engage with esteemed IT journalists during the IT Press Tour, where we’ll discuss our vision for secure file access from the edge to any cloud, and the role of AI in its evolution.”

  • Peter Struik, EVP, Fujifilm Europe
    “With the amount of data increasing at an exponential rate, the demand for data archiving is higher than ever. Tape and tape-based services are reliable, energy efficient and sustainable, making them the key solutions for long-term data archiving. It is our strong conviction that there can’t be a sustainable storage solution if tape is not included. We look forward to meeting a renowned group of international journalists at the upcoming IT Press Tour to present our latest plug and play long-term data archiving solution, the Fujifilm Kangaroo, which includes the open-source based Fujifilm Object Archive software, and to share with them our conviction why tape is the future.”

    “We are very excited to participate to the coming IT Press Tour with this distinguished group of international journalists. We’ll introduce our IT asset management solution that provides a global, reliable and exhaustive vision of what and how are used IT resources. Being fully agnostic, our approach is horizontal and fits in all IT environments wishing to view, control, rationalize and reduce escalating IT costs.”

  • Aleksandr Ragel, CEO, Leil Storage

Additionally, we’ll share experiences and practical example what we do to create a truly sustainable and green large-scale data storage.”

  • Riccardo Finotti, CEO, QStar Technologies
    “After 37 years, QStar continues its track record of success, as archiving at scale becomes increasingly important in today’s storage industry.
