Simplified and optimized virtualization solutions – find out more at VMworld 2013

I liked the overview of virtualization from ZDNet which goes into detail on each of the technologies and how customers are bringing them together to best effect.


HP has a portfolio of solutions dedicated to converging server, storage, networking and management technologies to simplify and optimize delivery of virtualization for customers, and Brent Allen discusses the new introductions to the portfolio in the video in this post.


HP Cloud Advisors Nigel Cook, Archie Reed and Milan Shetti “talk the talk” and “walk the walk”

At VMworld 2011, six HP Cloud Advisors were in full force: meeting with customers, talking on video, heading to sessions, gathering at demos and presenting at the HP booth. The HP Cloud Advisors are an elite group – the top minds in Cloud at HP; our CTOs and HP Fellows. As you can probably imagine, their day-to-day jobs keep them quite busy. We were fortunate and very excited to catch Nigel Cook (Technical Director & Strategist), Archie Reed (CTO Enterprise Services) and Milan Shetti (VP & CTO for HP Storage) at VMworld and capture their interaction with customers on video.

The day three discussion we videoed at VMworld, which features Nick Van Der Zweep, Director of Strategy, Industry Standard Servers & Software and Milan Shetti, VP & CTO for HP Storage, begins with feedback of the most prominent words heard on the exhibit floor. "Cloud, Cloud, Cloud" – that’s what Nick states he’s hearing at VMworld 2011.

We made it a point to connect each day with our preeminent specialists (in this case HP Cloud Advisors) to see what concerns/questions they’re getting from customers from the exhibit floor at VMWorld 2011. The HP Cloud Advisors are an elite group – the top minds in Cloud at HP—our CTOs and HP Fellows.
