May 09, 2017

Day 2 of COMMON 2017 was full of education and conversation.

Conference attendees from Vision sat in on a number of sessions in the IBM i space to stay on top of the latest developments. Vision EVP and CTO Alan Arnold spoke on “HA Technologies Today and in the Future,” looking back on his years of experience with IBM i HA and forward to new technologies that IT professionals need to be aware of to meet ever-increasing demands for uptime.

Afterward, attendees made their way to the Vision Solutions booth to enjoy complimentary shoulder massages and learn more about what’s new at Vision.

We also continued our popular Power Talk live broadcast series. Pete Massiello, President of Vision Partner iTech Solutions Group was featured on Facebook live, discussing the growth they are seeing in HA/DR, DRaaS and Managed Services. Vision’s John Gay, Technical Specialist and Solution Architect, previewed his Wednesday education session on database replication and shared use cases for recent MIMIX Share implementations.
