At the heart of HP Discover 2013 is the Discover Zone – 500,000 square feet of themed pavilions showcasing HP’s latest technology and solutions. Many pavilions also feature demos of HP products that originated as HP Labs projects, technologies and innovations.


Here are just a few of the Labs projects being shared – download our handy map of the Discover Zone to see the whole list.


Printing and Personal Systems Pavilion

Head here for a demo of HP SureStart, the industry’s first self-healing BIOS solution for PCs, as well as the PageLift application on our ElitePad business tablet and the ePrint secure mobile printing solution.


Converged Infrastructure Pavilion

Learnhow researchers are using HP Moonshot to tackle large data sets, serve live dynamic websites, and run HP Cloud OS. Inthe Networking area, see a demo of an automated Quality of Service controller that improves the Microsoft Lync user experience and demonstrates how Software-Defined Networking can be made a reality for network operations. And the HP Labs-developed HP StoreOnce technology delivers fast, flexible, and risk-free data protection for the small site up to the enterprise-scale data center.


Software Pavilion

Find demonstrations of HP Labs contributions – including Distributed R and Pulse – to HP Vertica 7, the next-generation real-time analytics platform for today’s Big Data workloads. Distributed R is a system for large scale machine learning and graph processing. It enables and accelerates complex, big-data analysis. HP Vertica Pulse is HP’s scalable, in-database answer to the problem of harnessing the volume and velocity of social media data. Finally, check out a new cloud developer kit, called FORJ. It’s an open source solution, sponsored by HP which wraps up popular developer tool kits, already integrated together into blueprints. The kit will deploy them wherever you need it deployed – public or private cloud or some other on-premise hardware solution.


Big Data Pavilion

A first look at new research that expands Hadoop to meet the needs of operational SQL-on-Hadoop workloads. In addition, demos of HP Labs’ StoreAll Storage and StoreAll Express Query technologies offer new routes to taming Big Data archives, and HP IDOL On-Demand brings the power of IDOL data search and analytics to the cloud.


Mobility Pavilion

Get a first-hand look at how Mary Kay China collaborated with HP and HP Labs to use the Hydra mobility framework to deploy a mobile sales automation app for its network of thousands of Independent Beauty Consultants in a highly challenging market.


Security and Risk Management Pavilion

A demonstration of the HP Security Operations Center, which unites multiple HP security products and services to help prevent and withstand modern cyber-attacks. Featured among the new security innovations will be HP Threat Central, a secure platform that leverages connected intelligence to thwart cyber attacks faster.



Plus gurus!


Whenever the Discover Zone is open, HP Labs researchers will also be on hand at the HP on HP and HP Labs Guru Bar. Situated in the center of the Discover Zone in Hall 4, next to the Security and Risk Management Pavilion, the Guru Bar offers a great opportunity to meet with HP Labs technologists on a one-to-one basis to gain a deeper insight into recent innovations and to learn more about where HP Labs research is heading.
