Innovate your business and transform IT with HP at Microsoft Tech Ed 2013

Microsoft Tech Ed is coming to New Orleans between June 6th and 9th 2013, with hands on learning, deep product exploration and lots of relationship building opportunities.


HP will be demonstrating how our innovative solutions help customers:

  • Increase the speed and effectiveness of the business
  • Simplify the complexities of systems and network management
  • Deliver services faster, with higher success ratios
  • Create measureable business value
  • Ensure application performance, reliability and availability

We’ll be at booth 1401 where you can meet our experts and learn how HP and Microsoft are working together to help you innovate your business and transform IT. 




We have three main speaking sessions which we think you’ll find valuable.


Any Data, Any Size:  Architecting breakthrough performance and scalability with mission critical solutions built on HP AppSystem for Microsoft Parallel Data Warehouse - Session code DBI-B395


With the advent of in-memory technologies such as xVelocity (an in-memory columnar store index), Polybase (Hadoop integration) and SMP and MPP architectural options (scaling to multiple PB for data warehousing), SQL Server 2012 provides levels of scalability and performance to handle true enterprise-level, mission critical data management needs.  This session will provide an in-depth look at the HP reference architectures and appliances built on SQL Server 2012 and SQL Server Parallel Data Warehouse, including the HP AppSystem for PDW.


Network Design and Deployment Strategies to Ensure Success for Microsoft Lync Server 2013 Enterprise Voice - Session Code OUC-B204


Companies of all sizes are starting to embrace Microsoft Lync for Unified Communications & Collaboration (UC&C) and PBX replacements. In this session learn about networking and WAN router design best practices, along with Lync migration strategies required to support interactive multimedia, including proper planning, QoS, resiliency and branch survivability. These are critical to ensure success and that your project doesn't stall due to scalability or performance issues as you move from initial Lync Server 2013 pilots to a full-blown Enterprise Voice deployment.

Building a scalable high performance Microsoft Private Cloud with HP Cloud Solutions for Microsoft using the Microsoft MMS 2013 HOL Serverquarium as an example


The HP Cloud Solution for Microsoft is the ideal infrastructure for virtualized workloads that will accelerate your journey to the Microsoft private cloud.  Built on best in class HP Converged Infrastructure and Microsoft Windows Server with Hyper-V and Systems Center 2012 SP1, we will discuss how this solution was implemented at MMS 2013, management integrations,  and implementation considerations, including design and integration points as well as options for support.




In addition we’ll have some great demos at the show including:


  • HP Insight Control for Microsoft System Center
  • Data Warehouse Solutions
  • HP Networking and Lync SDN
  • HP Cloud Solution for Microsoft
  • HP BladeSystem
  • ProLiant 3D Interactive Experience
