HP OneView for vCenter demo

VMworld kicked off last night with the Solution Exchange Welcome Reception - and Andrew Mayne didn't disappoint!  Check out the post that went up last night, Real magic from HP Storage at VMworld.  

 

Before VMworld, my lab team gave me access our development infrastructure and I was able to capture a demo of our new HP OneView for vCenter plug-in.  In this demo, you'll see that you can now from vCenter, deploy and provision HP StoreVirtual VSA.

 

 

It's going to be a busy day at VMworld.  If you're at Moscone in San Francisco, here are a few things to help you stay connected with HP Storage:

 

  • We'll have Lightning Labs and short session in our HP Storage for the Software-Defined Data Center Booth (Booth 417).  I'll be hanging around here when I'm not doing other things so stop buy, get an espresso, and hear about some of the things that have me so excited.
  • Today at 1 PM, we'll have one of the first VMworld sessions on vVols.  It's session number STO2554-SPO and the title is Zooming In: How VMware Virtual Volumes (vVols) Will Provide Shared Storage with X-ray Vision.  This session has been moved to a bigger room 3 times so it's going to be really popular.  Sign up and here what VMware and HP are doing around vVols.  BTW, HP 3PAR is the FC development platform for vVols at VMware.
  • Andrew Mayne will be making appearances around VMworld again today.  See him from 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM in the Yerba Buena Gardens and4:00 PM – 4:30 PM HP Storage Booth #417.  

Off for a busy day at VMworld!

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

 

This is a busy time of year for the software-defined storage team with product announcements and prep for VMworld. As you may have seen yesterday from either the press release or Calvin’s blog we had a number of enhancements to talk about for our VSAs and Management tools.

 

Calvin’s been after me for a while to get some ShortTake’s done around our SDS products and so this announcement was the perfect opportunity for me to dive in to that task. I’ve completed 3 to start, that offer a high-level overview of our news coverage.

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.
