IT’s what’s for dinner: salad and hyper-convergence

By Kate Davis, WW Marketing Manager, HP Software-Defined Storage   @KateAtHP


TossedSalad.jpgWell, I’ve been asked to teach a couple of hyper-convergence crash courses this month. So I’ve been thinking about how to approach the subject. My audience is not technical so I needed to come up with a concept that’s relatable.


I’ve come up with salad.


Join me as I use a new approach to explaining Traditional IT, Converged Infrastructure and Hyper-converged.

HP Converged Storage - a vision to simplify storage

I was trying to remember when we first started talking about Converged Storage. I searched our blogs and it looks like it was May 2011. When I started doing ChalkTalks (here's a link to all the ChalkTalks and ShortTakes), one of the first ones I did was Converged Storage.  


The roots of HP Converged Storage

While we starting talking about our vision of Converged Storage over three years ago, its roots are in Converged Infrastructure - a topic that I started to discuss here in 2009. That vision is really starting to come together.  At HP, its really coming together with solutions like HP OneView, HP ConvergedSystems, and from a storage perspective HP 3PAR StoreServ. Today I want to focus in a bit on our Converged Storage vision and how it is epitomized in HP 3PAR StoreServ.


I want to suggest watching David Scott's storage keynote from HP Discover.  Since it is a keynote video, it is a little less than an hour long. I highly recommend watching this but if you've already heard about our news from HP Discover, that is what David covers in the last half of his keynote.  I have more details in the full blog post so check it out.
