Kristina Brand

New York City is a hub of global financial services, startups, Broadway, and so much more, and this summer, it has more sizzle than ever! Once again, thousands of people will convene at the Javits Center in New York on Thursday, July 11, to learn about the latest cloud innovations from Amazon Web Services (AWS). NetApp® has partnered with AWS for over six years with a successful track record of co-inventing to make managing your data on AWS both simple and cost effective. We’re thrilled to be back at AWS Summit New York as a platinum sponsor.
