W-Curtis-preston-190-x-150Countdown2StorageExpo blog editor Rose Ross’s (@Rose_at_O) interview with W Curtis Preston (aka Mr Backup) from TruthinIT is available here. People who know Curtis are used to seeing him interview the leading storage CEOs for TruthinIT – but at this year’s CeBIT in Germany, Rose got the chance to interview the interviewer. Curtis explained that TruthinIT is a publishing and media company that organises seminars, webinars and videos (even parody music videos). The audience “tends to be very IT-centric, and even storage-centric,” said Curtis. Core focus areas are virtualization, backup and recovery, and cloud computing. TruthinIT runs over fifty seminars a year, so Curtis must fit his event participation around TruthinIT’s own seminars. He said if he could attend only one tech industry event, it would probably be VMworld – “the show that has everything that I worry about.” However, he also attends a number of other industry events, including EMCworld, Storage Networking World, and Storage Expo, for example. Any companies that want to work with TruthinIT should email Curtis at info@truthinit.com.
