Part 2: Push the ball forward with Converged Infrastructure

Here's part 2 of my discussion with Brad Parks on our March 1 storage announcement.  If you haven't checked out part 1 (all the goodness we announced around HP 3PAR), please take a look at that.



In part 2 we talk about storage based on HP ProLiant and BladeSystem servers - great proof points for Converged Infrastructure.  There has been a number of competitors who have started using Converged Infrastructure as something they do - funny thing is that they are a storage only vendor so it will be pretty tough for them to drive convergence of storage, servers, and networking like we do at HP. 




In this part, Brad and I talk about the HP StoreOnce D2D Backup System, P4000 BladeSystem SAN (based on HP LeftHand), and the E5000 Messaging System.  Here's the video:



Tomorrow, I'll have a vlog talking about HP 3PAR and BladeSystem Matrix integration that will include a demo.
