HP BCS Chief Technologist Reveals What HP is Designing Next in Mission-Critical

Here is another informative video from HP Discover.  Interviewers John Furrier, founder of SiliconANGLE and Dave Velante co-founder of Wikibon.org talk to our Chief Technologist for BCS, Kirk Bresniker at "the CUBE".  Topics covered include:


  • What's changing in mission-critical from HP? 
  • Why do you feel that the mission-critical market will expand?
  • What is Project Odyssey?  How does it complement HP's UNIX strategy?
  • What is the path towards convergence for UNIX and x86?  Is Intel partnering with HP on this?
  • Explain the relationship with Linux and Windows developers on x86.  How robust will these environments become?
  • How will the IP in HP-UX, OpenVMS and NonStop get embedded in system level software in x86 environments? What primary purpose will these advancements serve, particularly as it relates to partitioning and error management?
  • Why not put the wood behind one arrow? Why split development efforts?
  • Can you use the same converged infrastructure in mission-critical cloud deployments bursting between private and public cloud?
  • If a customer is still using 1997 mission-critical technology, what are they missing out on - why fix what isn't broken?
  • What types of workloads are ideal for Superdome?
  • What are you doing next to expand on the flexibility needed in mission-critical?
  • How does big data fit into the picture? What is the value of information and how should it be measured?

I invite you to take a coffee break and watch this informative video.  Let us know what you think and if you have other questions for Kirk.
