One of the highlights at HP Discover are the coffee talks we do in the Discover Zone Blogger Lounge.  Many of the bloggers tell me that they love hearing from David Scott (SVP and GM of HP Storage) because he can switch from talking to the storage business to storage technology seamlessly. 


David joined the bloggers and I have a podcast of that session.  I had to audio recorders in the room and I've done a lot of editing to minimize the background noise - like the air conditioners that where working away in the background.  So if you here a bit of switching in sound levels, that's why.  Also, there was one question that was asked toward the end that was a topic covered extensively at the beginning (All-flash arrays) that I moved to that section.  Here's a rough outline of the flow:
