There is a ton of great information that came out of HP Discover last week - and if I dribble videos out one at a time, it would probably take me until HP Discover next June to feed them all to you.  So I want to point you to a few of the videos in this blog post and over the coming days.  


HP Converged Storage gaining momentum

I did a video with Brad Parks talking about our vision HP Converged Storage and the "fruits of our labor".  I've told the story a couple of times but before sharing this video, I think it's worth repeating. 


About two years ago I was offered an early retirement from HP.  I had just hit 50 years old and I could have walked away from HP with a couple of years of salary.  I in fact got a call from a storage competitor asking me to consider working for them.  So I could have walked away with a pretty good chunk of change and a new job.  Obviously, I didn't.  And the reason I didn't is I couldn't be more excited about the opportunity that HP has with our portfolio.   Brad and I talk about the momentum that we're seeing with HP Storage - and this is exactly why I stayed.  It's a bit under 4 minutes but the story it tells is a very impressive and I'm very proud to be a small part of it.



The BIG state at HP Discover

Very unexpectedly, David Scott, SVP and GM of HP Storage, was asked to join the Day 1 HP Discover keynote to give an overview of what's going on in storage.  This was about a 10 minute video.  David's storage track keynote is also available and while a bit longer, if you're interested in more details, they're worth your time.  The shorter video is on the left and the storage track keynote is on the right.

























We have more on our storage page including videos from HP Discover that dive into more details.  This is a newly designed page and I really like it - especially since it points to my blog and videos!
