HAVANT, United Kingdom, Jan. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Xyratex Ltd (Nasdaq: XRTX), a leading provider of data storage technology, today announced that Richard Pitwon, leader of the photonics research and development group at Xyratex, will present at SPIE Photonics West 2014, held in San Francisco from February 1 through 6.
