I was amazed by the size of the solutions exchange, but surprised with the limited hours it was opened throughout the week. I wish I would have had more time to talk to additional companies. Fascinating to see what companies had to offer and what gimmick to get people to listen. A few companies had magicians. A lot of companies had a raffle at the end of a 10-15 minute presentation, which reoccurred often.
I thought it was amusing the lengths backup companies went with their booths. Rubrik and Cohesity both had two-story booths and sport related contests. Commvault had a therapy dog park between the Moscone buildings.
I wanted to share some photos of the most interesting areas of the solution exchange and also the square.
