We are only a week away from Insight 2016 in Las Vegas, and I wanted to let everybody know how excited we are that OpenStack is going to have such a huge presence.

We will have the usual booth on the expo floor where you can come meet folks on the NetApp OpenStack team including Rob Esker (Product Manager), Marty Turner (TME Manager & Product Owner), Brendan Wolfe (Marketing Manager), Sumit Kumar (TME), Akshai Parthasarathy (TME), and myself to answer questions about what we do in the OpenStack community.  But if you want to go deep on OpenStack we have so many options that cover basically everything…
