Around the Storage Block

Unboxing the first HPE Primera and more!


Last week, we had a blog post announcing the availability of HPE Primera. Today I'm happy to share with you a video from the first customer to get HPE Primera, BlueShore Financial. The news of BlueShore as the first HPE Primera Unboxing HPE Primera.jpgcustomer is also part of a press release

One of the BlueShore people in the video is Ryan Burgess, Manager of Technology Infrastructure. I did a video with Ryan five years ago shortly after BlueShore adopted 3PAR in its environment. Ryan is joined in the video by BlueShore CIO Fred Cook. You gotta see this video. It's not your typical video of a customer talking about how they use a vendor's product. I'll just say that it's entertaining as well as very informative. So check it out!

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.
