Ozzie Castillo | As a certified HP Partner, DTM was given the opportunity to attend HP’s much-anticipated signature partner event, Discover. The ultimate technology conference on all things Cloud, Big Data, Security, and Mobility, Discover is one event that IT professionals don’t want to miss.
With it being my first week at DTM, I was gearing up for my new role consulting on enterprise storage technology. My mission at Discover – get trained up on architecting multi-site HP storage solutions and achieve the related Master ASE Storage certification. Every other waking moment was spent engaging at storage-related events, sessions, and informal chats, or meeting HP storage gurus.
Apart from reaching my original objectives, the overall experience at Discover as a first-time attendee was nothing short of extraordinary. The portfolio of products and solutions being offered by HP is vast and I had firsthand previews of many of them.
I was treated to a private demo (courtesy of an old HP friend of mine) on the new EMC-to-3PAR migration tool. My focus being on storage, I was pleasantly surprised to see how easy and straightforward the migration was. HP is definitively disrupting the storage market with the 3PAR Storage portfolio.
I’m excited to be working with HP on implementing their solutions with some of our clients. Stay tuned for other updates on storage and HP technologies.
