DSA took time out to visit the ZertoCon Local event in Taipei on Friday last week. Zerto shipped in a few "big hitters" to support the event including Chief Marketing Officer Gil Levonai, Vice President APJ Andrew Martin, and Greater China Manager David Zhang.
This was the last of the ZertoCon events to take place in South East Asia region with more to come in New Zealand and Japan.
The ZertoCon Local themes have been around the concept of IT Resiliency and maximising cloud. It has gone down well with corporate IT professionals and Systems Integrators alike. Taiwan is a new region for Zerto and judging by the interest level of the attendees, these themes of cloud and resilience are important to IT professionals in this country.
|The day gets started under the watchful eye of Angel Chin, who looks after Zerto's marketing in South Asia and has organised the South Asia ZertoCon Locals.|
