Watch a day of deep-dive HPE Storage briefings



HPE Discover_Live Streaming Video_Blog.jpgFor the last eight years, I've attended the Nth Symposium in Anaheim. I met Dan Molina, CTO of Nth Generation, at an event and he invited me to attend their customer event held at Disneyland. Who wouldn't jump at that chance? It's been such a great event, I've attended every year since then and I've brought bloggers along to do a Tech Day at four of them. 

What's a Tech Day?

That's a good question, if you don't know. We bring bloggers to either an HPE location or an event (like Nth Symposium) and do deep-dive, interactive briefings with them. We hosted the Tech Day on October 9 and in this updated post, I'll share the videos from all the sessions.

Who are the bloggers attending?

We have a great group of bloggers that attended our Tech Day at Symposium.  Here's who was there (their name, Twitter handle, and blog URL):

You can see what they said on Twitter with the hashtag #HPETechDay and we have a Twitter list of all the attending bloggers that you can also follow. 

Thank you to Nth Generation and Scality

Two important thank you's to mention. the first thank you goes to  Nth Generation. They had their customer event, Nth Symposium, on October 10-11 and they are very gracious to give us the space to host the bloggers the day before Symposium started. There's a brand new video with Dan Molina talking about the relationship with HPE and I want to share it here. 

I also want to thank our partner Scality. They generously helped us to hold the Tech Day.  I have their session in the list of videos so check that out!

I have worked at HPE since 1983, all of it around storage but 100% focused on storage since 1990. I'm expanding into other areas of focus at HPE like HPE GreenLake, compute, containers, AI, and more. I blog, create videos, and podcasts to help you better understand HPE Storage. Find my podcast at
