NexGen Storage hosts a technical seminar series on vSphere 6 and Virtual Volumes (VVol)

The momentum around Virtual Volumes keeps growing and growing, and it does so in large part thanks to the support from our storage partners. The VMware storage partner ecosystem continues to embrace the Virtual Volumes wave because just like us, they see in this technology a fantastic way to unlock a lot more value from the rich set of capabilities that their storage systems can deliver and ultimately to transform for the better the way that storage is managed in virtualized environments.

NexGen Storage is one of our Virtual Volumes partners that is doing a great job at helping customers understand how they can benefit from this technology.  In this regard, I am pleased to provide you with the following information about a series of technical seminars that NexGen is hosting on vSphere 6 and Virtual Volumes.
