HP Storage integration with Windows Server 2012

Headshot 100X100.jpgBy Calvin Zito, @HPStorageGuy  


Yesterday I did a podcast introducing Microsoft Windows Server 2012 (WS2012).  Today I want to dive down into some of the storage integration we have with WS2012.  I have four videos, each is pretty short, that will give you a good picture of that integration. 


First up is a short video that gives an overview. This is with Parissa Mohamadi - Parissa is our Microsoft Solution Manager for HP Storage. 



The remaining three videos are demos.  I'll embed them here but I suggest you watch them on YouTube and watch a the HD version. 


Storage space reclamation with UNMAP

Offload Data Transfer (ODX) with HP 3PAR

WS2012 storage management user interface

I actually have one more video that is a single video with embedded links to these four videos.  I had seen another video on YouTube that had 4 videos embedded that you could click on to see each video - so I copied the idea with this video. 



Lastly, yesterday we did an HP TechCast, my show that I co-host with Jeffery Powers (@geekazine), focused on the WS2012 announcement.  We had some great guests and a great conversation around what is cool about WS2012.  As soon as that's available, I'll post it here - so watch for that.
