Last week I was in Boston for a meeting with colleagues from HP Storage.
While at the airport, I got a few minutes with Kate Davis. Kate is our product marketing manager for HP StoreVirtual  (formerly HP LeftHand) and is now focused on software-defined storage.


Kate has been my most active guest blogger on ATSB and I'm really happy to hear she'll be leading software-defined storage at HP.  This is an important emerging topic and I think the source of a lot of confusion.  Since we both had a bit of time waiting for our flight, so I grabbed my audio recorder and did a podcast.  We briefly discussed software-defined storage and Kate committed to future blog posts on ATSB.


Here's the podcast with Kate:

I've said it a few times in the past but if you want to play with our HP StoreVirtual VSA you can get a full featured trial by going to  

And just to show you I actually did get out (albeit for about an hour), here's a picture I took of the Old State House in Boston, site of the Boston Massacre and the Declaration of Independence was read for the first time from that balcony.

I have worked at HP and now HPE for 32 years, 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.

@Storage Management - since you've left 5-10 comments on the blog all with a URL, you look like a spammer.  If you'd like to engage in real conversation, feel free to leave a real comment and without a spam URL.
