Wrapping up HP Global Partner Conference

CJZ headshot.jpegBy Calvin Zito, @HPStorageGuy  vexpert 2012 logo.gif

I'm in Las Vegas for the VMware Partner Exchange (PEX) that kicks off in a few hours but last week here in Vegas we had the HP Global Partner Conference.  I thought it would be worth pointing you to some of the blog posts from my blogger friends that attended.


Justin Vashisht

I get the sense that Justin didn't sleep.  I watched from a far on Twitter and he was all over Vegas, at HP GPC, and still managed to post a bunch of blogs from the event.  Here's what he posted:


Ernesto Pelligrino

Ernesto is a VMUG Montreal leader, has come to the last couple of HP Discover events and I've really enjoyed hanging out with him - I was hoping he was coming to PEX but one can only take so much of Las Vegas and I don't blame him for not coming back this week!  He was also very busy last week.  Here are his posts:



John Obeto

We affectionately like to call him King John - fun guy to hang out with and very smart.  You have to be a successful CEO to get the kind of insight he gets.  To date, he has one post from GPC titled HP GPC2013: the initial press briefing


Nina Buik

Nina is just great people and I always enjoy being at events with her.  She is the Chief Marketing Officer of Connect - the independent HP Users group.  She is a literal energizer bunny.  I think I'm the one who told her that's what she was (and she now has the energizer bunny as her Twitter avatar). She was also very busy at HP GPC.  Here are her posts:


Jake Ludington

Jake's specialty is "man on the street" video interviews and he got a couple of great ones at GPC.  Here's a link to his GPC YouTube playlist: One video I'd call out is the interview Jake did with the Senior VP and GM of Enterprise Group Marketing, Stephen DeWitt.  Stephen talked about GPC and the Enterprise Group announcements.  He's fun to watch.  Note Enterprise Group is Dave Donatelli's organization here at HP and includes storage, servers, networking, services and more. 


Finally, I thought it would be worth while to point you to a blog on our Eye on Blades blog that talks about what's new with BladeSystem, so check out GPC announcements provide "unmitigated good news" for HP Customers.


I'll keep my eyes open for any more posts and pass them on as I find them but not time for me to focus on VMware PEX.
