NetApp has decided not to proceed with its inaugural user conference, which was scheduled for February.
While the company had more customer interest than expected, customers were saying that their travel budgets were being cut and they were unable to commit to attend because of the economic uncertainty, according to NetApp.
The event, scheduled to happen at the Moscone Centre in San Francisco, would have been NetApp's first annual user conference.
Early next year, NetApp plans to publish some of the technical content it had developed for the conference.
As recently as October 15, NetApp was posting information on a blog about topics it planned to cover during the event. The final post described one planned session called "stop the pain of MS Exchange backup and recovery" that would offer tips on using NetApp's SnapManager to add storage without taking Exchange offline.
