A few weeks ago, Jeffery Powers (@Geekazine) and I did a live HP TechCast with our special guest Jason Buffington, Sr Analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group. Unfortunately, I forgot to hit the "record" button. It was a fantastic webcast and I didn't record it!
Fortunately Jason was able to join Jeffery and me along with HP LTO expert Bob Conway and we did a redo. We all thought the second go at it was a far better webcast after we got another chance at it.
I have way more fun than anyone should doing their job. On Friday, I took a quick trip to the Bay Area to shoot a couple videos. Continuing the tradition of my bocce brother Marc Farley, I do the Countdown videos with Pooja. Pooja is a great sport doing these.
She had to be at HP Corporate in Palo Alto for a noon meeting so we were looking for a place to do our StoreEver Countdown video - and the obvious location was.... Well, you'll have to watch the video. I think Pooja really enjoyed our location shoot! Here's the StoreEver Countdown.
Finally, don't forget the live HP TechCast this Thursday at 1 PM ET, 10 AM PT. Along with my co-host @Geekazine Jeffery Powers, we'll be joined by ESG Sr. Analyst Jason Buffington, and long-time HP expert Bob Conway.
My blog post earlier today was an overview of our HP StoreEver Tape Storage announcement today. I want to add to that an HP Storage ChalkTalk I have focusing on HP StoreEver LTO-6. I hope you find these ChalkTalks useful - I have a good time making them (call me a geek!). Here's the LTO-6 ChalkTalk.
There's also a great announcement website where you can find a lot more content on HP StoreEver Tape Storage - you can find it at www.hp.com/go/storage/nextera.
We've obviously been busy at here in HP Storage. Since November, we've announced:
- HP StoreEasy NAS
- HP StoreVirtual Storage (formerly HP LeftHand)
- HP 3PAR StoreServ
- HP StoreAll Storage
- We also had some enhancements to HP StoreOnce Backup
Well, time to reveal another set of products with new naming. Today we're announcing HP StoreEver Tape Storage. I have a couple of videos that give a good overview - one a short interview from HP Discover showing the new HP StoreEver LTO-6 Tape Drive and the other a ChalkTalk that gives a bit more details.
Well, shame on me for waiting until now but I want to alert you to a webcast tomorrow (January 29) at 1 PM ET. I'm looking forward to this even though I had nothing to do with it. UPDATED: The webinar happened today and I'm told there will be a replay link by tomorrow so please check it out.
Mark Peters is a Sr Analyst with ESG and my former boss (now my boss' boss) Craig Nunes are going to talk about the future of storage. I've had the pleasure of spending some time with Mark and enjoyed a wonderful curry dinner in downtown London with him a couple of years ago that was the best Indian food I've ever had.
Here's a link to register for the webcast tomorrow.
Next week, I'll host another HP TechCast on February 7th at 1 PM ET with my co-host @Geekazine Jeffery Powers. Our topic will be the changing nature of backup and archiving. Out special guest will be ESG Sr. Analyst (and data protection expert) Jason Buffington. For our webcast, I have a calendar item you can download. Be sure to join us!
