Many customers are seeing IT spending cuts nowadays, but business hasn't stopped even if it isn't growing. Your company may have slowed down on purchasing computer hardware, but for most HP customers, storage needs have continued to grow despite the economic downturn. Jimmy Daley, manager of the Server Options Marketing Team at Hewlett-Packard talks about this growth trend in an interview with Pete Steege from Seagate Technology. In this interview, Jimmy talks about
- Virtualization as a driver for increased storage capacity
- Increased drive count per server
- Customers segmenting their data storage needs between performance and bulk storage
- HP's move towards blade servers and how 2.5inch drives are a key component for space consolidation and power reduction efforts.
