By Manish Goel, Senior Vice President and General Manager, HP Storage




You know HP 3PAR flash time is here when the premier IT research company, Gartner, Inc., named us the fastest-growing flash array vendor in 2014 and featured us as a leader in its 2015 Magic Quadrant for Solid-State Arrays. HP was the only vendor in the MQ that improved its relative position. Thank you Gartner for recognizing us. It’s been a great ride so far.

Time to relax with some summertime storage reflections

Well it’s time for a little hard-earned downtime for your favorite (?) storage blogger! The last couple of quarters in this business have seen the transformation of the storage industry move at full pace. Now I plan some restorative moments in the sun, chilling by the sea in Portugal for the next couple of weeks. Bring it on!

I have just returned from Colorado where we spent a couple of days in our Fort Collins engineering site reviewing the storage industry and our key future focus areas. This was my first trip to this part of the U.S. and I was impressed with the lush-green environs and pleasant early summer climate. I look forward to returning for the winter ski scene at some point. But today my focus is on storage engineering and innovation powering the future of storage

Storage for small to midsize businesses: time for software-defined?

This week I’m attending a meeting with some of our most valued Distribution Partners in EMEA and thought this might be a good reason to reflect on storage for small-to-midsize businesses. I’m focusing today software-defined storage. Cost pressures, limited staff and a generally more integrated IT approach (what else can you do with only one or two IT guys only) makes software-defined storage a very attractive to small business...or to large enterprises with smaller remote sites.
