Get more from your IT – simplify virtualization

By HP guest blogger Alain Inugai


Are you struggling to keep up with your virtualization needs?  Is the complexity of designing, tuning and most importantly – maintaining your IT infrastructure standing in the way of delivering new services and applications that drive increased value to your business? The new HP ConvergedSystem 300 for Virtualization can help you take full advantage of the potential of virtualization while minimizing your headaches.

In person or online at HP Discover – Here’s who to follow during the event in Barcelona

As a follow on to my blog late last week about if you are unable to attend HP Discover, I also wanted to update you of the large group of Industry blogger attending the event this week. This is an interesting group because they have a passion for technology and are always looking to find the latest news on new tech. This year we have invited 26 independent bloggers to HP Discover in Barcelona. These bloggers represent not only HP’s target customers (business and IT decision makers worldwide), but many are also considered leading voices who drive Social Media discussions around current and future states of hardware and software. As expert practitioners, they have a technical credibility with their audiences.  

Not going to Discover?…Don’t worry we have you covered!!

From the HP Discover site you will be able to a get access to a lot of HP Discover Online activities including access to 3 live robots that will be roving around the event floor. These robots will be interacting with delegates and HP staffers who will be providing their views on the event. More importantly we will be live streaming a lot of the main stage plenary sessions as well as the Innovation Theater sessions. These are the sessions I find the most interesting, as they provide technology solutions from a HP customers perspectives. They are a great way to understand how companies have resolved and overcome critical obstacles within their respective businesses.
