HP Discover 2011 got kicked off on Monday in the sin city Vegas. Not sure what is it about conferences this year, most of them are scheduled to be in Vegas, some of these conferences include Interop, EMC World, HP Discover and VMWorld.
We (the bloggers) have been connected with HP since the first Tech day in Oct 2009 in Colorado Springs. Dave Donatelli had just joined HP and they were going through putting a lot of things together from a convergence perspective. At HP Discover 2011, we see that vision coming through that was essentially discussed with us in 2009. HP seems to truly invest towards convergence, the datacenter of the future, which includes the networking stack, systems stack, storage stack, hypervisor (open from Citrix, Vmware, Microsoft) and application integration into this.
This week should be interesting and hopefully we should see some exciting new announcements from HP on the HP Storage, HP Cloud and HP convergence strategy. The first day has been quite busy at the bloggers lounge, hopefully the rest of the 3 days are the same in terms of information flow.
