HP and VMware talking Horizon 6.0 podcast

VMware Horizon 6.jpgI had the pleasure of hosting a podcast that touched on today's news from VMware on Horizon 6.0. My guests were Drew Koerner, Chief Healthcare Solutions Architect from VMware and Pete Brey, a solution manager from HP.  In the podcast, Drew gave an overview of VMware's news today around Horizon 6.0. We followed that with a discussion about the collaboration between HP and VMware on the AlwaysOn Point of Care.


In the podcast, we mentioned a Reference Architecture and as soon as I have a link to that, I'll do another blog post and add the link to this post.  I also have a ChalkTalk that gives a short overview of the VMware and HP Mobile Care solution so I'll share that with you as well.   Check the full blog post to get the podcast and ChalkTalk.

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!

Virtual desktop announcement leading up to VMworld

vmwareView.pngI'll be leaving for VMworld tomorrow morning but I wanted to give you one last pre-show blog post.  Last week, HP had an announcement about our desktop to data center virtualization portfolio for VMware View.  This isn't an area that I've spent a lot of time on in the past other than looking at our storage for our reference architectures so yesterday I grabbed a couple of experts to help me understand the announcement. 


The end result is this podcast with Christian Jones from our thin client team and Dan Nordhues from our converged infrastructure team.  Christian helped me understand our thin client portfolio and Dan discussed the latest reference architectures for VMware View and also vSphere and Citrix.

HP Storage Vision panel discussion on client virtualization and cloud services

Over the last month, I've posted several videos from the HP Storage Vision 2010 event in London that I was able to attend.  Today I have video of a panel discussion hosted by David Chalmers from HP.
