At the Door Registration opens on 1/6/09
The Eighth Annual Storage Visions Conference (SV09) held at the Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada January 6 & 7, 2009 will have great raffle prizes for attendees, book signings, conference award presentation, and a birthday party for a company that started at an earlier Storage Visions Conference.
Atrato, one of the SV09 Award finalists, was founded after the 2004 Storage Visions Conference. The company will sponsor the reception for the 2009 Storage Visions Conference to celebrate their fifth anniversary. Attendees can visit Atrato in the SV09 exhibit area. According to Chairman of the Board, Dan McCormick:
"Atrato is proud to sponsor the Storage Visions 2009 reception, especially given the historical significance of this day for Atrato. The 2004 Storage Vision Conference marked an important landmark for our company - it was here that Atrato crystallized its vision for our products in the digital media market. Atrato saw a tremendous opportunity to re -think the role of storage in the entertainment and media market.
These observations inspired the founders at Atrato to collaborate with leaders in the digital media and entertainment industry to launch a completely new storage solution. We expect 2009 to be another banner year for Atrato and look forward to launching into the New Year at Storage Visions 2009.
We know Dr. Coughlin will constantly be on the lookout for new technologies that will improve the capabilities of the digital media market. With this in mind, we offer our sincere thanks to Dr. Coughlin and the Storage Visions Conference for their involvement in introducing Atrato's Velocity1000 to the digital media market. Please join us as we celebrate this important milestone in our company's history."
