C-Level Technology and Investor Software-Defined Storage Event to Take Place During VMworld 2014 US
SANTA CLARA, Calif. - Thursday, July 3rd 2014 [ME NewsWire]
(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Nexenta (@Nexenta), the global leader of Software-Defined Storage (SDS) (#softwaredefinedstorage)
solutions, today announced that Hillary Rodham Clinton, Former Secretary of State and Former U.S. Senator from New
York, will deliver the keynote address at Nexenta's OpenSDx Summit on Thursday, August 28, 2014 in San Francisco.
Coinciding with the last day of VMworld 2014, Nexenta’s OpenSDx Summit is an invitation-only event that convenes more
than 400 CEOs, CIOs, investors and VIPs. Nexenta hosts this annual event to discuss the importance and advancement of
software-defined technologies, and the impact that they have on organizations around the world as they embrace the
Software-Defined Data Center. OpenSDx Summit will include industry expert panels and thought-provoking conversations
around Big Data, the Internet of Things, mobility, social media, and other topics.
"We are thrilled to have Secretary Clinton deliver the keynote address at OpenSDx Summit," said Tarkan Maner, Chairman
and CEO of Nexenta. "Now more than ever, the public and private sectors need to collaborate to provide technology that
can drive innovation in the global economy. OpenSDx Summit will address the key technological and business issues that
will become the backbone for doing business for the next five-ten years."
After nearly four decades of public service as an advocate for children and families, First Lady, Senator, and U.S. Secretary
of State, Hillary Rodham Clinton now helps lead the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation. She is also the author of
the new book, Hard Choices, which chronicles her efforts to restore America’s leadership after eight years in which it was
badly eroded. From repairing our fraying alliances to negotiating a cease-fire in Gaza that defended Israel’s security and
headed off another war in the Middle East, to mobilizing an international coalition to impose crippling sanctions against
Iran, to standing up to China and helping reassert the United States as a Pacific power, thanks to Hillary’s leadership,
people were finally able to say: America’s back. She championed human rights, internet freedom, religious freedom, and
rights and opportunities for women and girls, LGBT people, and young people around the world, as she has her entire
career. She also went to bat for American workers and companies around the world to boost exports, create jobs back
home, and level the playing field against unfair competition from China and elsewhere. At the Clinton Foundation, Hillary
continues her work on behalf of women and girls, in support of early childhood development, and to help young people
get the skills they need to find good jobs and participate in the global economy. She remains committed to making the
American Dream an American reality.
