I haven't had a chance to dig into our Autonomy acquisition - until now. While at SNW, we had Autonomy in our booth and I took the opportunity to talk to Enterprise Account Executive Charles Green about Autonomy. It is some very exciting technology. Charles talked about the three parts of the Automony portfolio:
- Power - meaning based computing
- Protect - meaning based governance
- Promote - meaning based marketing
It's a huge portfolio of products that you can browse by going to www.autonomy.com/ and click on the products drop down box. Here's the podcast I did with Charles:
Charles mentioned an app you can download for your Apple or Android phone - here's a link to that website: www.aurasma.com.
I ended my day at SNW on Monday attending a session by my colleague Michael Haag. Michael came to HP via 3PAR and is a Senior Solution Manager for Virtualization and works closely with partners like VMware, Microsoft, and Citrix. He talks a bit more about his role in our podcast.
His session was titled "Keys to building the right storage foundation for virtualization". In my podcast with Michael we hit some of the high points of his session like:
- Michael's three virtualization truths
- Storage challenges resulting from virtualization
- Keys to building the right storage foundation, including storage architecture considerations
During his session MIchael also mentioned that HP 3PAR Peer Motion (our storage federation software that I recently demoed on HP LeftHand) now supports VMware and we talked about that. Here's the podcast with Michael:
SNW is winding down today in Dallas and I've actually left to visit some family down the road in Arlington, Texas (no, no relationship to Jerry Jones) - but my SNW work isn't finished as I have three more podcasts. I think all of them are interesting and informative.
The podcast in this post is with John Webster, Senior Partner with the Evaluator Group. His background is impressive and you can read about it on this Evaluator Group page. John and I talked about big data and his perspectives on the topic. If you're a little fuzzy about big data like I was, I think you'll find this educational.
What a wild day at SNW in Dallas. I'm sure by now you heard about the tornado that touched down; just before we were moved into a safe, windowless room as the tornado approached, I was able to talk to Wayne Adams who leads the SNIA board of directors. Our conversation covered a lot of topics including areas of technical focus for SNIA (things like cloud, SSD, big data, and storage management with SMI-S), how SNIA is organized around the initiatives and SNIA education and certification.
If you're not familiar with the work of SNIA, this is a really good podcast to get an overview of the work going on there.
Spring SNW in Dallas is underway and in full swing. I made the first sessions of the day, choosing a session from the Cloud Computing track. Greg Schulz, IT advisor and author of the book Cloud and Virtual Data Storage Networking, gave a great presentation by the same name. I was fortunate to get a few minutes with Greg after his session and talk to him about his session and this book. Spring SNW in Dallas is underway and in full swing.
