The other day, I introduced you to our new HP 3PAR Get Virtual Guarantee. Today, I have a podcast with my fellow vExpert Eric Siebert. If you've been reading my blog, you know that HP 3PAR is a modern architecture designed with virtualization and cloud in mind. In the podcast, Eric helps us understand some of the storage challenges created by server virtualization and how HP 3PAR's architecture overcomes those challenges.
I also have a blog post on the VMware Alliances blog - that post has a YouTube version of the podcast I did with Eric, so if you're a visual person head over there and take a look at the blog post.

I also see that Mike Letschin is a blogging machine and has a few blog posts from the Gen8 Tech Day. He's also posted some pictures of a Gen8 teardown. I also just noticed a blog post from Matt Vogt he titled HP Gen8: Smarter hardware.

LaMills is our HP 3PAR Americas product manager and I've known him for a long time - going back to more than 10 years ago when he was working in R&D. After seeing his tweets, I thought it might be a good excuse for a short, Sunday night getting back into the swing of things blog post. So here's what LaMills said:
