As we’ve previously discussed, every organization is at a different stage of convergence and IT maturity. Most organizations are well on their way to becoming standardized and somewhat virtualized (mostly just servers). Others are in the process of figuring out how to virtualize their storage and network resources ... use automation to provision infrastructure using a service catalog and application life cycle management software tools ... or move certain workloads to the cloud.


The fact is the path towards convergence and ultimately a hybrid Converged Cloud environment should be viewed as a journey. This is why HP Converged Infrastructure solutions allow you to take a step-by-step project-based approach with innovative technologies designed for convergence, or take a fast-track approach with HP Converged Systems.


The point is, making time to explore the HP Converged Infrastructure Pavilion in the Discover Zone is where you can kick the tires and bring your tough questions to our HP Converged Infrastructure experts – no matter where you are in your journey.


As you’ve probably experienced before, navigating an event of this magnitude can be daunting. So let me direct you to our portfolio of HP Converged Infrastructure solutions that will accelerate your move to convergence and cloud knowledge and value:

The Converged Infrastructure Pavilion is located on the East side of Hall 3 spanning North-to-South. Once you get there you can explore the dozens of cool HP Converged Infrastructure technologies and services across servers, storage, networking, and management. That alone should amaze you, but make sure you don’t pass by many of the industry noise making innovations, such as:  





  •  This is where you will find great ‘solutions’ such as how to build a Private Cloud for Microsoft SQL
         Server; SAP virtualized landscapes with HP 3PAR Storage; and new advancements in

         modular and next-generation net-zero energy data centers.
  •  And don’t forget:  Learn about how HP Financial Services can accelerate your move to
         convergence and cloud value without incurring budget increases.  And how HP ExpertOne
         can “up-level” your cloud and Converged Infrastructure value to your company.


Plus, we have a full line-up of HP Converged Infrastructure Theater presentations with topics picked and designed based on customer best practices and popular deployments.


And if you move upstairs to level 3.1, our experts can take you deep into our integrated Converged Systems such as the popular HP CloudSystem ... as well as solutions that address the industry “hot topics” around cloud, security, big data, and application transformation.


As I stated in my last blog and worth repeating here: HP Discover Frankfurt is a tremendous opportunity that will only benefit YOU – both personally and professionally.


I hope to see you in December. Not registered yet? Click here.
