SNW in Pictures

Another October, another fall tradeshow under our belts. As we return to the desk after a week at the Storage Networking World show in Dallas, we reflect on some of the non-technical highlights of this trip.

For one thing, the show wasn't actually in Dallas. It was in Grapevine, a small, historic (read: old) community that apparently exists somewhere outside the boundaries of the Gaylord Texan resort, where most attendees were incarcerated for the four-day event. Check it out:

SNW digs: The Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center, Grapevine, Texas

Not to grouse: This place was truly Vegas-worthy, complete with phony river. All that was missing was the casino -- I think. (You never know what may be happening behind the spa.) Still, the Gaylord has something the Luxor can't boast (any resemblance to Dan Warmenhoven is strictly coincidental):
