Gerry Seidman, President, AuriStor
Gerry Seidman has a long career having designed and implemented many complex, secure, high performance, high-availability and fault tolerant distributed systems. He is President at AuriStor where he is still very hands-on including the design and implementation of the AuriStor/AFS Kubernetes/CSI Driver.
AuriStor, Inc. produces secure, scalable cloud storage solutions that reduce the cost of managing the ever increasing unstructured storage needs of global enterprises, small & midsize businesses and eventually, individuals. AuriStor envisions a world in which all users experience the benefits of a universal globally accessible file namespace that provides all of the capabilities and performance of local disk file systems. In this world, operating systems, applications, and user data are executed locally for performance but are logically managed in the network simplifying hardware replacement, reducing risk of data-loss, improving accessibility, providing new opportunities for collaboration, application development and business models.
The AuriStor principals have worked together for over twenty years on Internet-based network file system and security technologies. These collaborations have led to the delivery of successful storage and security solutions to multiple industries, including finance, high performance computing, government research, and computer industry leaders including Apple and Microsoft.

Unigroup would like to thank both publishing companies for the support provided by their User Group programs.
As always, all of the books will be available for review at the start of the meeting.
Note: Our book supply is currently running low, and we need to restock.
