The X5000 Network Storage System at HP Discover

Yesterday I had a blog post and video with Nina Kuepers talking a bit about E5000 Messaging System for Exchange; as I said in yesterday's video, I wanted to have Nina, a self-described girl in IT, give me an overview of the X5000.  After we did the E5000 video, we walked over to the X5000 booth at HP Discover and did this second video.  I had fun with Nina doing these videos and suggested that if she moves to the U.S. I would have her be my co-host for my video blogs.  Wouldn't that be fun!


Here's the video with Nina and I talking about the X5000 G2 Network Storage System... and her famous shoes!




Last week when we announced the availability of the X5000, I had a video from HP Discover Las Vegas that included the Microsoft Storage Server 2008 Program Manager Scott Johnson.  Scott was also in Vienna and stopped by the booth just as Nina and I finished our video.  Here's a picture of Scott and Nina with the X5000.

I also came across a video that Lee Johns, our director of converged storage, did at HP Discover in Vienna talking about the X5000.  I hesitate to put this video next to the video I shot and edited since Lee had help from trained video professionals with his video but he hits a lot of things that Nina and I didn't talk about. 



I have a bit more left from HP Discover including a demo of software for HP 3PAR that I got a demo of - it was cool stuff.  So check back!

What a fantastic piece of technology. Our company wants to order one and I am looking forward already.

Thanks Mat - would love to hear more about how you use it and what you think after you have it.
