A couple of weeks ago I did a webcast with Hewlett Packard’s David Scott, General Manager of their storage division. The event was MC’d by Calvin Zito, the infamous @hpstorageguy. In the video we talk about some of the general challenges in storage and of course as you’d expect, David positions them in terms of HP technology.
HP are going through a storage rebranding exercise, which I’ll cover in detail in a new post. The fixed product codes are being phased out in favour of more memorable names, such s StoreEasy and StoreVirtual. I’ll be attending HP Discover EMEA (Frankfurt in fact) in a few weeks and look forward to getting some more detail on why this rebranding exercise was done and what more we can expect. Of course there are already rumours circulating (thanks to El Reg Chris Mellor) and it’s not a surprise that HP wants to promote more of their 3PAR flagship storage platform. However let’s wait until December and for now, enjoy the video!
