Yahoo Honcho to Keynote StoragePlus

NEW YORK -- Light Reading's Byte and Switch (, the premier online storage networking publication, today announces that David Webster, Manager of IT Architecture & Strategy for Yahoo, will kick off the Byte and Switch StoragePlus 2006 Conference and Expo as the Opening Keynote.

StoragePlus 2006, taking place on September 12 and 13 in Burlingame, Calif., promises to be the most innovative and informative storage conference and expo of the year. This is the first event to step back and explore storage networking in its largest context. StoragePlus will explore all aspects of the storage chain – hence the title: storage plus security, plus application management, plus Web services, plus blade servers, plus managed services, and more.

Mary Jander, StoragePlus Conference Co-Chair and Site Editor for Byte and Switch, notes: "Storage is the hottest field in data center technology right now. It has evolved from an arcane, back-end science to become the cornerstone of data management. The expanding role of storage has inspired this event."
