From The United Kingdom
Over the last few days I have been on a whirlwind tour of England visiting with our customers over here. I spent the last three days visiting customers in and around London, and tomorrow I will be visiting some customers up around Manchester. It has been a great trip so far, and everyone has been extremely friendly, and is interested in our legacy services and support for NetApp equipment. There seems to be a lot of confusion about the transferability of licenses and many of the people we met with have been given misinformation on license transferability, I tried to clear the issues up as much as I could. A lot of the folks I met with this week work for the European division of companies in the US that we already do business with. It was great to hear in person how they had heard about us and how happy they have been with our service and support.
Up until this trip I thought the most confusing street signs were in the city of Boston, however I think London is clearly tied for confusing building numbers and street signs. By the way, I recommend the Dog and Duck for some beers with customers and then a trip down the street to GoPal for some Indian food.
