Race towards the Cloud

On Tuesday, 4 April, First Distribution hosted the First for Cloud Roadshow at Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit in Midrand. Over 100 partners, resellers and vendors attended the event aimed at helping our partners to be on the forefront of the ever growing Cloud space.

The day was spent displaying various new technologies that First Distribution has to offer, including Virtual Infrastructure, Security and backup products – all from within some of the best IT brands in the world, including Kaspersky Lab, Acronis, Microsoft, Riverbed, Brocade and VMWare.

Kevin Derman, Director of First for Cloud, was the host for the event – starting the day with a fascinating look at the pace at which technology is changing and evolving, and taking the audience through what the future of the world most likely holds – daunting as it may seem.

Each of the Roadshow sponsors took the opportunity to present the best and latest of their product offerings – first in the form of a 30-second opening pitch, secondly warming up with a 2-minute elevator pitch, and ending with a detailed look at each products and the benefits it offers. The brands, presenters, and new technologies were all very well received, making the event a tremendous success with positive feedback from those who attended.

In keeping with the theme of ‘Racing towards the Cloud’, multiple track experiences were put up for grabs throughout the day – the winners each getting the opportunity to experience the thrill of the famous Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit.
