HP Converged Infrastructure: Innovation is not a just a buzzword

The word ‘innovation’ has been bantered around a lot lately as this era of convergence is readily upon us. When I look back - now more than a year – after introducing Converged Infrastructure, I am truly awed by the cool new technology our experts were able to deliver to our customers. It’s well known that HP’s history is steeped in technology innovation, but it’s amazing that every day more than 10,000 engineers create products for the HP Converged Infrastructure alone. (take a look around a recent HP Tech Tour of the Houston campus here) For the technology experts at HP, IT innovation means understanding customer issues, challenges and business environments; then discover new ideas and ways to help them achieve better results; and finally, make it real by delivering true innovation in the most relevant manner aligned with their pace and preferences (e.g. through modular building blocks or through transformational approaches).


So in the vein of making this real, I invite you to take a read through many of the innovations behind HP Converged Infrastructure. I have pointed out featured articles and blogs; meet or hear from some of the engineers and researchers who are driving the advancements that help solve the industries most demanding data center challenges.


The story of IT innovation behind HP Converged Infrastructure - This article shares how HP’s engineers and researchers turn good ideas into great IT infrastructure, using cost-saving standard components.


HP leads the way for IT industry standards - Read about HP’s leading role in the DMTF, IEEE, SNIA, and the Green Grid standards organizations.



HP researchers solve tomorrow’s enterprise IT problems today  - Take a peek under the hood of what HP Labs is inventing for the data center of the future.



Probably the most near and dear to me is the collection of CI innovations that I was part of last year (see my summary post here: What does an unrelenting focus on innovation deliver? A year of results). The fact is; innovation is really the heartbeat of how CI helps hundreds of companies get more from their IT budget (much more), enhance their value with their customers, and help their businesses raise to the top of their game. But we are always open for new data center innovation ideas – what’s yours?
