Yup, that time has come again to take part of Dell World 2013. And of course no Dell World would be complete without some discussion on storage, including EqualLogic. The event will be taking place in Austin, TX from Dec. 11th to 13th, so register now.

If you’re like me, you’re more interested in what storage breakouts and discussions will be taking place at the event. Luckily, I’ve spec’d that out for you already, so here’s what will be discussed by way of storage (taken directly from their agenda):

MT3: Cloud client computing infrastructure: The first virtual desktop infrastructure aligned to your software strategy

Learn from the experts the breadth and depth of Dell’s leading server, storage and networking solutions for desktop virtualization. From reference architectures, appliances and components to complete racked-and-stacked converged infrastructure, Dell’s solutions are aligned specifically with virtual desktop software from Citrix, Microsoft, VMware and Dell to reduce risk, streamline implementation and ensure faster time to value.

MT15: Automate and simplify your IT management operations

Dell OpenManage leverages the industry’s only agent-free embedded server management tool, iDRAC with Lifecycle Controller, to enable automated IT management operations in both physical and virtual environments, across enterprise servers, storage and networking. And it delivers those same capabilities in popular third-party management frameworks so you experience the same simplicity of management on both Dell platforms and your existing infrastructure investments.

HOL8: Efficient enterprise deployments with SupportAssist proactive support

Learn how to configure and deploy an infrastructure fast while enabling the performance you require. Learn from the experts using a mix of Dell hardware, such as PowerEdge servers, EqualLogic arrays, Force10 switches, and VMware software. Plus, see a live demonstration of Dell’s automated proactive support capability, SupportAssist.

Special Note: HOL stands for Hands-On Lab. MT stands for a Session (don’t ask me what the acronym stands for…heck if I know…).
