Connect is an independent community of HP users - it's a users group.  Here is what the Connect website says about them: Connect is the largest technology community of HP business technology customers around the world. Connect’s mission is to provide its members with the best value and return on their HP business technology investments by providing ADVOCACY, COMMUNITY, PHILANTHROPY and EDUCATION.  Connect supports HP business technologies including servers, storage, networking, security, operating systems and infrastructure software.


Nina Buik is the Chief Marketing Officer of Connect.  I met Nina at our first storage Tech Day back in October of 2009.  I have a ton of respect for Connect and specifically for Nina. She is an energizer bunny - she keeps going and going with energy to spare.  She has more energy than almost anyone I've met and she is by nature a leader.


Nina recently asked me to be the HP liaison for the Connect Storage Special Interest Group. Since we were both at HP Discover, I asked Nina to do a short video with me.  In the video, Nina gives a short overview about Connect.  The video is less than 3 minutes so check it out.  



If you're already an HP customer, I highly recommend that you consider joining Connect.  And if you're already an HP Storage customer, join us on our HP Storage LinkedIn Group.  You can find it at  In the video, Nina mentioned Connect Converge - a quarterly e-publication from Connect - check out the latest edition, the Best of 2013.
