I am very happy to have been invited to attend HP Discover in Barcelona as a guest of HP. This follows from attending HP’s Storage day in Colorado and a Cloud briefing in Sydney in 2012 as well as the HP Tech @ Work event also in Sydney, this year.
The event is pretty huge, hundreds of sessions in nine tracks. I’m expecting to spend a fair bit of time with the Converged Cloud track, hopefully with some time left for the Converged Infrastructure and Mobility tracks. Maybe this show will also be the one where we see a mainstream use for the MoonShot scale out servers. I wonder whether massive scale out will prove to be the next revolution in IT Infrastructure, possibly combined with a lot of automation and developers working better with infrastructure teams. Of course I’m also interested in the all-flash 3Par array and anything that makes a fleet of thin or zero clients easier to manage. I’m also expecting that all my plans will go out the window as soon as we start the conference.
There is an interesting list of blogger attending Discover in Barcelona, including a fellow Kiwi and a few friends from other events. There should be lots of interesting conversations, I will try to capture a few of those.
