Without question, innovation and change are the two biggest factors that drive technology forward. In a recent post, Craig Nunes explored how breakthrough innovations like magnifying glasses and lasers have captured the imaginations of those who use them, leading to some amazing new applications. Craig applies that same lens to flash storage—a truly innovative game changer that is capturing the attention of our customers and industry experts alike. (Case in point: We were just named a leader in Gartner’s Solid State Magic Quadrant where Gartner acknowledged HP as the fastest-growing flash vendor in 2014.)


What could be a better time to continue the conversation?
I'd love to have you to join us in some real conversation and insights about flash storage and the future of storage in general. What’s changing? What’s driving the change? And how you can stay ahead of the curve? Jump in here:


Conversation on: Software-defined storage—the hidden secret behind the power of hyper-converged

As if you didn’t know, today’s data center is undergoing a revolution, in large part due to two new advances: software-defined storage and hyper-convergence. Combined, they offer simplicity of deployment and greater flexibility, as well as new operational efficiencies that reduce the need for IT staff specialization and create time for bigger projects. Learn the hidden secret behind an HP hyper-converged data center, and discover how these two technologies make it possible for you to set up a virtualized server environment that can handle the hyper-growth that today’s business world imposes.
