Learn to swim with the Sharks: Online lessons available from HP Discover Barcelona2013

Convergence is one of the fastest growing trends in IT today. But who is getting it right? HP has spent 5 years reengineering system components from the ground up so they are designed to work together. HP ConvergedSystem products are integrated systems optimized for critical workloads in virtualization, cloud and Big Data.  We’ve redesigned the customer experience as well, so you have one point of accountability – HP – for hardware, operating systems, and third-party software with proactive problem prevention. And you can go from order to operations in as little as 20 days. Simple and fast…like a Shark. We think we’ve knocked the others out of the water.


See for yourself. We’ve screened the many videos and blogs coming out of HP Discover Barcelona2013 and offer the following list as recommended viewing and reading.  You can get the broad picture of how HP’s new ConvergedSystem portfolio can accelerate your business time-to-value or zero in on a particular workload solution. It’s a quick way to get up to speed. So get out of the cage and learn how you can swim with the Sharks. Because others will.
