HP Discover – One week later, what did I miss?

Chris Purcell on ‎06-20-2014 02:18 PM



It’s already been a week since I was at HP Discover in Las Vegas, and as typically happens I get back to the appears a year has already gone by. I did promise myself to send out a post that summarizes the event and provide video and session links that have now become available. This typically provides a good reference paper for those of you that had a chance to attended Discover along with those of you that didn’t. From my perspective this was the best HP Discover I have attended to date. As always, this show are full of activities; session and product demos you would expect to find at these types of event. But this time around I felt a strong positive buzz throughout the entire length of HP Discover. This was success was illustrated by a lot attendees still talking to staffers when the 4.00 pm buzzer went off signaling the end of the show. They were still talking at 4.15, and even by 4.30 as the carpets were being rolled up on the floor, they were finally starting to gravitate towards the exits. Even weary of after a 3 day conference there were smiles and lots of handshakes.


Here’s a summary of HP Discover activities:

General Session videos day 1 and 2 with Meg Whitman and Bill Veghte

Innovation Theatre Sessions These are all worthy of being watched, as they all provide interesting insights on how to drive datacenter improvements as well as providing ideas for driving new types of business innovation.


Specific items associated with HP Converged Systems

HP Makes Enterprise Architecture of the Future a Reality. This is a link to the press release that was put out over the wire on 6/9 at 3.00pm PST. If you are interested in getting a quick summary of all the HP enterprise news, this makes a good read.

HP Converged Systems Track Keynote replay. This keynote that was presented by Tom Joyce, senior vice president and general manager HP Converged Systems is worth watching as it illustrates the integrated partnership HP has with Microsoft, SAP, VMware, Citrix and many others. There is also an interesting segment with two representatives from jet Blue being on stage with Tom, explaining the sucess they have had with implementing a Systems approach within their datacenter.


I have included a couple of product videos that where shown during the keynote, both under 3 minutes, but both are interesting and provide a different perspective to infrastructure within the datacenter
