Re: Imagining the Possible, from Edge to Cloud with Microsoft and HPE

There are many things to do at HPE Discover 2019. Booths to visit, demos to see, theater sessions to take in, receptions to attend. But only one event Booth and one event Sponsor invites you to “Imagine the Possible” … and that’s Microsoft.

Quite an invitation, if you think about it. It’s a ticket to a journey that can take you from where you are now to where you want to be … presenting multiple options all along the way to make sure both the journey and the destination remain consistent with your vision of what your enterprise should be.

HPE just announced that Microsoft has been named “Partner of the Year 2019 – Data and Analytics Solutions.”  The award was presented at the HPE Global Partner Summit on Monday, June 17. If you’d like to see one of the major reasons why Microsoft was singled out in this solutions area, I invite you to attend the following HPE Discover session:

TB8518 Microsoft SQL Server: Run, don’t walk, in your enterprise data center

Microsoft has raised the bar for SQL Server and enterprise data centers are taking notice. Features include Linux® support, world-record OLTP and DW performance, advanced in-memory database capabilities, built-in AI and integration with Spark and Hadoop (coming soon in Microsoft SQL Server 2019). HPE and Microsoft experts will discuss how you can best leverage SQL Server innovation for your most demanding enterprise applications. Wednesday, June 19, 2019 12:00 p.m.–01:00 p.m.
