Converged Infrastructure

It’s time to build a better enterprise, together with HP, at Interop 2013

We’ll shortly be heading out to the Mandalay Bay Conference Center in Las Vegas for Interop from May 6th – 10th, to highlight our range of technologies including Cloud, Virtualization, Data Centers, Wireless & Mobility, and Information Security.


Here’s a quick guide to what you can see there.




May 9 - 3:00 – 3:45 PM - Harness the Power of Big Data


Speaker – June Manley, Director, Big Data Solutions, HP Enterprise Group


Enterprises are waking up to the deluge of opportunities to collect and analyze data on every aspect of their business. However, bigger, faster, and more complicated data doesn’t necessarily mean more clarity for your business.  In fact, it often means just the opposite.


This session will provide insights into how enterprises can harness the power from big data with an intelligent end-to-end approach with an equal focus on information infrastructure, information management and, information insight.


May 8  - 4:00 – 4:45 PM - Unleashing the Public Cloud Opportunity in the Enterprise

Speaker – Glenn Ferguson, Global Manager of Pre-Sales Engineering, HP Cloud Services

Big data.  Social.  Mobile. These worldwide trends are sparking new cloud-based applications and driving innovation around the delivery of open, web-based services. They are also creating the next wave of cloud innovation and adoption which will drive the migration of production workloads to a cloud model.   


We’ll share the implications of these shifts and the resulting use cases with examples of how some IT managers today are taking advantage of the public cloud today.


May 9 - 1:00 – 1:45 PM - Transforming Your Business with a Hybrid Cloud Delivery Strategy


Speaker – Wendy Cartee, Vice President, Global Converged Cloud Marketing


The next wave of cloud innovation and adoption will drive the migration of production workloads to a cloud model and will require seamless interoperability across traditional IT to private, managed and public clouds.  Adopting a hybrid delivery model across private, managed and public clouds to ensure flexibility and scale will be a necessity.  


We’ll share how customers are taking advantage of hybrid delivery, explaining the untapped opportunities and benefits to moving production workloads to the cloud, and what it will take to lead this next wave of adoption.
