New HP StoreVirtual enhancements

Seems like we've had a steady stream of announcements over the last several months and a few of them have come from our HP StoreVirtual team.  We made some enhancements to the HP StoreVirtual Storage in November, including changing the name from HP LeftHand.  I did a ChalkTalk on those updates.

About a month ago, we had a few more updates to share focused on new mid-range StoreVirtual appliances and I had another ChalkTalk with those updates.


I have a ChalkTalk with the news we're sharing today.  I'll give you hint - a new HP BladeSystem-based StoreVirtual appliance.  Check it out in the ChalkTalk.

Good news for midrange customers: 2 new HP StoreVirtual models

Kate Davis Headshot1.3.jpgGuest blogger Kate Davis is back—with news on the next round of new models for the HP StoreVirtual Storage portfolio. Get the run down on what’s new. If you’re an HP LeftHand customer, you’ll definitely want to check this out. And if you’re attending the HP Global Partner Conference this week, stop by the booth and she’ll show you the new HP StoreVirtual 4730 that is on display.


New format - HP ChalkTalk

HP Storage ChalkTalk.pngI've been playing around with the software over the last couple of weeks and made three HP Storage ChalkTalk videos.  I think they do a good job giving an overview of the HP StoreEasy NAS and HP StoreVirtual Storage solutions we announced last week. 


I plan on doing ChalkTalks more often so check them out and then let me ask you to answer a couple of questions with your comments:


  1. Do you find this video format useful?
  2. What topics would you like me to cover in future HP ChalkTalks?

Thanks for watching!

StoreVirtual VSA podcast

podcast.jpgYesterday I did my first live ATSB podcast  I have to give a small caveat - that I have done a couple of live webcasts.  I host my podcasts on a site called  It was made for doing live podcasts and I've attended the VMware Community podcast more than a few times that is hosted on TalkShoe as well.  I guess I'm glad I finally did this because I should have done one sooner and hopefully, I'll do more. 


The topic of the podcast was our StoreVirtual VSA announcement yesterday.  I've been getting my fill of information on StoreVirtual over the last few days but there was actually something I learned during the podcast related to VMware and Hyper-V. 

More on StoreVirtual VSA including Veeam

veeam_logo.gifI didn't want Kate (my colleague on the HP LeftHand team) to have all the fun today with our StoreVirtual VSA announcement - and frankly I think I got the better end of the deal.  Last week, I got to do an HP Storage Countdown video, focused on our HP StoreVirtual VSA (the product formerly known as HP LeftHand VSA), in Oceanside, California.  I was on my way to Anaheim and met my HP Storage colleague at the beach to do this video summarizing the announcement.  As Pooja says at the end, "check it out"!
