Servers & Systems: The Right Compute

Update on mainstream compute at HPE | Around the IT Block Podcast #4


You probably know me as the storage guy but I've been spreading my wings and getting into everything that we are doing here at HPE. Today, I want to share with you a vlog/podcast that I did with Krista Satterthwaite, the VP and GM of Mainstream Compute. We recapped what is the latest in HPE's mainstream compute portfolio. We talked about compute and transformation, updates to the ProLiant Gen10 Plus portfolio, security, workload-optimized compute, compute as-a-Service, and how HPE Financial Services is also helping.

Here's the vlog version of our conversation.

You can also listen to this on my new Around the IT Block podcast presented by HPE. Yes, after 12 years of podcasting, my podcast is now an official HPE podcast! Nice!

Here are the places you can now subscribe to Around the IT Block presented by HPE! Google Podcast, Amazon Music, StitcherPodcast Adddict and Spotify podcast.

Krista brings a ton of energy and some great stories to bring home some important points so be sure to watch or listen to this.
