I have worked at HP and now HPE since 1983, all of it around storage but 100% focused on storage since 1990. I blog, create videos, and podcasts to help you better understand HPE Storage.

Calvin, I enjoyed this podcast with you and the Scality folks. I hope to see many deployments of HPE StoreFabric M-series switches with Scality RING!
