HP Discover wrap-up according to bloggers

With my romp through Europe, I'm a bit late giving my semi-annual blogger shout-out after Discover.  We bring these independent voices to HP Discover so that you can hear someone else's view of the event and our news.  This year, we had 24 independent bloggers who attended HP Discover. and between them they posted over 75 articles and 49 videos.  I haven't had time to read and watch all of them but I want to share with you some of the storage highlights from them.  So be prepared for a large collection of links!  For a few of these, I'll provide a bit of commentary so here we go:

Big trends discussion with Nth Generation CTO Dan Molina

California Adventure Day time.jpgAn annual event for me is the Nth Symposium - it's an event I really like to attend because my friends at Nth Generation in Southern California have a rich event with a lot of content - something as blogger I'm always looking for.  One thing that Nth has focused on over the years is education and it's reflected in Nth Symposium.

 

I first met Nth Generation CTO Dan Molina at HP Tech Forum (predecessor to HP Discover) in 2010.  Dan is a technologist at heart and whenever I talked to him, I learn something.  He was at HP Discover and one of the last things I did before leaving Las Vegas was this podcast with him. 

 

Here's a high-level summary of what we discussed:

 

  1. Big Data - is it real or still a buzzword?
  2. New IT reality
  3. The importance of security
  4. Cloud - clearly no longer a buzzword
  5. Overview of Nth Symposium in Anaheim

Software-Defined Storage: You have questions, we have answers

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

 

Even after two years of talking about Software-Defined Storage, basic questions are still being asked within the IT community about what it is and what is does. So I thought I’d share a couple of items that may help answer some questions you may have: A new IDC brief with the Top 5 questions customers are asking about SDS and a recent video interview at HP Discover with our Marketing VP, Craig Nunes.
