Do you know a Shark bite when you see one? CRN article calls it.

What do IBM’s sell-off of its x86 servers business, “Sharks”, higher margin deals for partners, and SAP HANA all have in common? Steven Burke puts it all together in an interesting CRN article posted today.

Burke points to the latest “SHARKS” HP released in the water today – the new HP ConvergedSystem for SAP HANA, a portfolio of integrated systems workload-optimized specifically for SAP HANA. They provide 2x faster analytics processing in comparison with IBM.


And, with a very fast order-to-delivery time of less than 20 days, the HP ConvergedSystem business line provides faster and bigger deals for HP partners. No doubt this will be discussed at the HP Global Partner Conference to be held next week, March 24-26, in Las Vegas. Follow the event at #HPGPC.
