Few hours with EMC at Hyatt

EMC Corporation conducted a seminar at Hyatt today. As we had got an invitation for the same; me and Sudipto took a day off from office and attended it. I reached Hyatt before Sudipto and it was raining at 9:50 am in Kolkata. As he expected to be late, he called me to tell ‘go ahead’.

The girl at the Registration Desk was very nice. She gave me a small kit with notepad, pen, some EMC brochures and some forms to fill up. The forms had lot of technical questions in it so I decided to wait for Sudipto as he knows our organization better.

Sudipto rushed to Hyatt Ballroom not more than 5 minutes later than I did. We started filling out the forms; but then someone told us to enter the room as the Welcome Note was about to start.

Mr. O. Rajesh presented the greeting messages. Some topics covered in the seminar are Storing More Intelligently, Backup Recovery and Archival, Compliance etc. I was looking for the Content Management session; however, the concerned person was not there so the session was dropped. We had a good lunch at Hyatt with lots of items that I could not even touch.

I learned a lot of thing today; though our company is not at the position to implement such Storage, Backup or Recovery system; but we may need such infrastructure in future. Moreover, EMC supplied lots of thing to think over. I really enjoyed the session conducted by Smartha Guha Thakurta; he is a brilliant guy and good speaker too. Thanks EMC for such an informative seminar.

Lets share the success

I am really thrilled that a site like SiteProNews has published my article. They were very much helpful from the beginning when I sent the first email to inquire if the topics of the articles are given by them or it's the writer's choice. They gave me a wide domain to write about. I did some research, prepared the articles and sent it and here comes the result. Thanks SiteProNews.

Orkut becomes more communicative and participatory

Like Google, Orkut has updated itself a lot. With all the new features Orkut is now a great place to hang around. It has been translated in 5 regional languages of India, hence more Indians are likely to use Orkut.

Just few days back, when I needed to communicate with one of my acquaintances; I did not call him, nor did I send him email, I left scrap! Obviously, if I needed to say something personal, I would have dropped an email, however, Orkut is more personal and more friendly now. All the best to you Orkut.
