Last week I was fortunate to attend HP Tech At Work in Frankfurt, Germany. I would like to share some short videos from around the event. Let me know if you were there and have any videos to share - add to this thread. Or if you did not go? Let me know if this was a good view into the event for you. It was great to meet so many people at the event and to share latest product news and roadmaps. I have two more videos I'll add to this blog shortly on the new mission critical Superdome 2 and Integrity blades.

In 10 years the definition of "mission critical" has evolved and along with it the demand for continuous uptime has increased. What does "mission critical" mean these days? For me, I expect to be able to do what ever I want - banking, shopping, taking a red-eye, or writing my blog posts at what ever time I feel tickled to do so. Nothing critical about these things, but it's expected. Mission critical capabilities are even more important. In these past 10 years, the expectations have soared, putting more pressure on businesses to deliver services around-the-clock, without interruption. Predictable availability of services is a significant differentiator for businesses today. Lorraine Bartlett, VP of Marketing and Strategy for HP's Business Critical Systems pulls together her thoughts and is looking for yours at her blog on this topic here.
