Around the Storage Block

Morpheus Data podcast and HPE container news


I have a couple of non-storage topics I wanted to hit in my blog today. I recently did a podcast with my former HPE manager Brad Parks. Brad decided to give the start-up life a try after several years at HPE. I either worked with or for him Brad and Calvin.jpgduring his time at HP/HPE. He's spent the last two years at Morpheus Data and I have a podcast with him getting an overview of Morpheus Data and learning how HPE and Morpheus partner for DevOps and Cloud orchestration.

Containing containers

Earlier this week, HPE made an announcement focused on containers. There really wasn't a single blog post that pointed to all of the really good content that we had around the announcement so I'm going to point to videos and blog posts I've seen related to the news. 

  • And here's a 5 minute video that shows a demo of it. 

  • Toby Weiss is VP of Worldwide Hybrid IT Practice Area. He wrote a blog post looking at the news from the HPE Pointnext (services) perspective, 3 powerful ways to get the most out of containers. Interesting personal footnote that Toby and I graduated from college together back in 1983. Between the two of us, we have over 60 years of experience at HP/HPE!
