HP Discover 2012 - Scripting OA & VC presentation

I've been to every HP Discover, many of the predecessor events, and other vendor technical conferences.  Although I might be slightly biased, I have to say this is one of the best conferences yet.  There were plenty of product announcements, thought provoking keynotes, technical sessions and the expo floor.


I spent much of my week on the expo floor where we were showing Virtual Connect directly attached to the 3PAR storage array.  This is a very cool technology that can save 50% or more of the cost of SAN connectivity while improving performance and simplifying management.  If you missed it, here's a couple of links to where you can get more detail.




Many of you that attended my session TB2064 Scripting HP BladeSystem Onboard Administrator and Virtual Connect asked for access to the content.  It will be up on the HP Discover site in the next week or two, but I also put a copy here so you don't have to wait.  Let me know if you have any thoughts or comments.
