Storage strategy focus with HP Storage chief and Intel

P1100287sm.jpgI have two things to share with you today.  In our Blogger Lounge at HP Discover, the invited bloggers have many opportunities to hear from HP executives and technical experts in our "coffee talks".  We held a coffee talk with the David Scott, Sr. VP and GM of HP Storage and Milan Shetti, CTO of HP Storage.  David and Milan spent about an hour with the bloggers answering their questions.

The HP Discover blogger program via HP TechCast

After the dust of HP Discover settled, Jeffery Powers and I did our next HP TechCast.  We chatted with three of the independent bloggers who came to HP Discover and we covered a lot of topics.  On the show are John Obeto, Chris Wahl, and Justin Vashisht and they share their opinions about technology, the event and the blogger program we had at the HP Discover.  Since the show is about 55 minutes long, here's what we discussed:

  • Introductions: 0 - 2:30 (min:sec mark on the video)
  • Feedback on blogger program: 2:30 - 10:00
  • Keynotes (including HP CEO Meg Whitman &Chris Anderson of Wired Magazine) 10:00 - 15:00
  • Web-based email and cloud discussion 15:00 - 26:30
  • HP Discover Zone (demo area) 26:30 - 35:00
  • What would you do different at HP Discover 35:00 - 49:30
  • Is HP on the right track? 49:30 - end

Cloud Talk with CenterBeam

7171515153_67063aae6a.jpgWhile at HP Discover and heading to our HP Storage customer appreciation party, I was talking to Brent Allen, the product manager for our HP VirtualSystem for VMware - he had done a session and our customer CenterBeam co-presented with him.  I told him I'd love to do a podcast with them.  Brent told me to turn around because Karen Hayward, EVP and Chief Marketing Office and Shahin Pirooz, EVP, Chief Security Officer and Chief Technology Officer from CenterBeam were coming right behind us.


I had a great time talking to Karen and Shahin at our customer party and we made plans to do a podcast.


StoreOnce and EMC Data Domain performance flap

In today's post, I want to address the flap that EMC created last week questioning whether or not the HP StoreOnce B6200 is a single system.  Here's a podcast of my thoughts here (which you can also read by clicking through to the blog post).
