Something interesting came through my e-mail today that I thought I would share with everyone. The Itanium Solutions Alliance has invited Itanium users to submit what they are doing with Itanium-based servers, including HP Integrity servers for recognition and rewards. There are four categories:
- Mission-Critical Data
- Data Center Modernization
- Computationally Intensive Applications
- Humanitarian Impact - which includes a $25,000 prize
The awards celebration will happen during the Intel Development Forum on September 14th, 2010 in San Francisco. Submission forms and more details are available on the Itanium Solutions Alliance web site. Submissions are due on April 12, 2010.
I was just speaking with a co-worker during my last conference call for the year. He mentioned that he was putting together some customer video for an event that will visit a number of cities around the world in the new year: HP's Realize the Future tour.
The event speakers include HP executives, such as Ann Livermore, Dave Donatelli, and more. There will also be breakout sessions after the keynotes around automation and virtualization, cloud computing, and application modernization. The tour kicks off in San Francisco on January 12th, and visits Seoul, Beijing, Paris, Tokyo and more - basically, 14 major cities around the world. If this is something you would be interested in attending, more information is available at http://h30406.www3.hp.com/campaigns/2010/events/realize-the-future/default.aspx.
