Zadara Summit 2016: Why do we need a Summit?


Truly great accomplishments are the result of collaboration. They are the result of people and organizations cooperating, brainstorming, testing, measuring, improving and leveraging the outcome.

For many years, the technology industry was dominated by ivory-tower companies that essentially dictated to the market what technologies they would use, and how they would use them. Customers had to adopt (and adapt to) new products, while technology companies made huge profits. Eventually, this methodology broke down and today leading technology companies recognize that by collaborating with their customers, they can create far greater solutions.


At Zadara Storage, our mission is to deliver flexible, enterprise Storage-as-a-Service (STaaS) – that is always aligned with our customer’s changing world. To do this, we need to work closely with our customers to understand their needs. We need to recognize what features work well and which ones don’t, and we must know what new features are necessary and which ones are not. In short, it is essential to collaborate with our customers – and future-customers – to get a clear picture of the challenges the market is facing.


Zadara Summit is an opportunity for Zadara customers, partners, employees and executives to all interact, discuss, learn and collaborate. It is a time when customers can work hand-in-hand with the developers of the Zadara Storage Cloud to learn how best to leverage the products. It is a time when industry analysts share with us the trends in the industry that will affect us all, and how we can leverage these trends to our advantage.

Most importantly, it gives a chance for developers to work hand-in-hand with users and learn just as much. Zadara designers can hear, first hand, from users what they would like to see in the product. Each year, we leave the event with a better understanding of where the company needs to focus to become stronger and more valuable to our customers. After a few days of collaborating, discussing, and learning, we all leave a little smarter and with a much tighter relationship with the Zadara extended family.

Why do we need a Zadara Summit? Because it gives us all an opportunity to learn from each other and refocus on how best to run our respective businesses. Sign up to attend the summit.
