We're huge in Japan!!!

It seems our new virtualization blades -- just like Spinal Tap -- is huge in Japan!  Our team just sent over this clip from a recent show-and-tell for reporters overseas.

Take a Guided Tour of the HP POD

Stacey Higginbotham with Giga Omni Media was in our neck of the woods last week to take a guided tour of the HP Performance Optimized Datacenter (POD) with Wade Vinson.  If there's one thing you take away, it's just how much passion we have for what we do around here.

Take a look at the full article and some of the latest pics.

I remember back in 2006 when Wade was just the lowly "Fan Man" behind the Active Cool fans in our BladeSystem.  Now it seems I have to show more respect to the "PODFather".
