FLASH REPORT: A Surprise Party for Woz and the Launch of ION Data Accelerator

FLASH REPORT: A Surprise Party for Woz and the Launch of ION Data Accelerator

Posted: 03 Aug 2012

We pranked the prankster! Our Chief Scientist Steve Wozniak turns 62 on August 11, and he was genuinely surprised when he walked into the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco August 1. About 500 people wished Woz happy birthday, and we symbolically gifted him our new product, the ION Data Accelerator, and gave him a beautiful print of his DNA—because sharing is in his DNA, and ION Data Accelerator is shared storage.

In this episode of the Flash Report, we talk to one of our guests, comedian Drew Carey, about the first time he met Woz; plus our CEO David Flynn explains why we dedicated ION Data Accelerator to Woz. Finally. our Vice President of Products Gary Orenstein explains how ION Data Accelerator transforms industry standard servers and turns it into a powerful storage appliance.

Thanks for watching, and see you next week!
