HoneyBaked Ham meets HP 3PAR via VeriStor

While at VMworld, I met Steve Bishop.  Steve is the CTO of HP Partner VeriStor.  We were going to do a podcast at VMworld but ended up doing it today after we both arrived home. 


A few reasons I did this podcast and this is what you'll hear in it:

  1. VeriStor was named the HP 3PAR partner of the year.  Steve talks through their history with 3PAR that dates back 8 years ago. 
  2. Steve then shared with me a bit about the HoneyBaked Ham of Company of Georgia and how HP 3PAR helped them overcome their seasonal demand. 

Check out the podcast with Steve - it's a good one!


New HP Mobile Care with VMware AlwaysOn solution

I'm at the airport, a bit sad to be leaving my friends in the VMware community, leaving VMworld 2013.  But I'm excited that I'll be home for my wedding anniversary for the first time in several years!  And since my flight is leaving in less than an hour, I'll make this a very short blog post. 


One of the announcements we did leading up to VMworld was a new HP Mobile Car with VMware AlwaysOn solution.  I got to learn more about it at VMworld and also did a ChalkTalk that gives a short overview of the solution.  We'll have a reference architecture available very soon that you can check out but for now, here's my ChalkTalk.


My colleague Pete Brey also has a blog post that talks more about the solution, so check that out too!

HP StoreFront Analytics Pack for VMware vCOPs demo

I'm at VMworld and enjoying being with the great group of people that belong to the VMware community.  I've only been here for a couple of days and there's already been five or six community gathers I've attended - and the passion for what people do, sharing with each other and the fellowship we share is amazing. 


So I want to get back to that today so my blog post will be a short one.  Leading up to VMworld, we did some announcements.  One of those was integration we'll have with HP 3PAR StoreServ and vCenter Operations or vCOPs which is call HP StoreFront Analytics Pack for vCOPs.  I have a blog post that included a ChalkTalk where I gave an overview of this. 


Here's the demo I have showing the integration with vCOPs. I recommend opening the demo directly on YouTube, change the setting to the HD version, and watch it full screen.
