To say I was a little excited about being invited to speak at a customer event by our HP Storage team in South Africa is a bit understated. When they first asked me, I asked them "do you really mean me"? Well, they did and I'm back from an unbelievable trip. In this post, I'll briefly talk about all the fun I had, point to video and pictures I have of my weekend at Kruger National Park and share a podcast I did with Aptronics, an HP partner I met with in Johannesburg.
Planes, trains, and automobiles
Ok - the only train I took was between terminals at an airport but it was a very long trip for me to get to entrance of Kruger National Park in South Africa. 42 hours to be exact. I didn't pay attention to the itinerary I booked and had a 7 hour layover in San Francisco. That ended up being a good thing because I did get a bunch of things done preparing for the event in Johannesburg.
I flew into Johannesburg, South Africa and caught a small commuter plane to Nelspruit where I rented a car and headed for the Crocodile Bridge entrance into Kruger National Park.

It's been a bit over a week since I was at VMware PEX but I'm back in San Francisco and thought it would be a good time for another post on the topic. I have another podcast I did at PEX, this time talking to Steeve Daigle, who manages integration with HP OneView within VMware environments. Steeve and I talked about what's new with OneView and we talked about a new demo video on hp.com as well as a blog post that has more. I'm in transit to South Africa so I'll let the podcast do the talking.

Just over a year ago, I introduced our HP Storage ChalkTalks - you can click on the link to see all the blog posts I have that include a ChalkTalk or you can find them all on my YouTube playlist at hpstorage.me/HPChalkTalks. Now it's time for another new format - something I'm calling Around the Storage Block ShortTake.
What is an ATSB ShortTake?
I'm asking our experts in HP Storage to record themselves presenting on a topic - could be a product, solution, or program - with a goal of keeping them at 5 minutes. I'll have the audio as a podcast and you can get the slides on our HP B2B SlideShare account. <
