What would you wake up for? #convcloud 2

Waking up in the wee hours of the morning isn’t something that most would want to anticipate. However if you are a nerd and fixing to leave for a tech event then you are usually to excited to sleep, anticipating all the learning you are about to undertake during the event. I was asked if I could attend HP Converged Cloud Tech Day, this event is being held in Puerto Rico from March 26th & March 27th 2013. Getting to see the tentative schedule I am excited to be included in this event.

You can watch Chris Purcell talking about it on SDRNews – Click here

I will say that HP is sponsoring the entire event for bloggers that were invited, this is also noted in my disclosure page.

HP Converged Cloud Tech Day


Intro:  Every 7-10 years, technology delivery undergoes a tectonic shift; one that opens up new business and access models. A shift that changes the way technology is consumed and the value that it can bring. The Plan for this Converged Cloud Tech Day is to open the HP cloud technology portfolio to demonstrate how distinct pieces of it come together to form a seamless cloud experience. 

During the event, HP will deliver deep-dive technology presentations on each of the following areas, showing how they stand alone, as well as how they come together.

Expected session topics include:

  • HP Gen8 servers, HP CloudSystem and Hyperscale computing
  • HP Cloud Storage
  • Networking and Cloud Security
  • HP Converged Cloud reference architecture
  • Managing the cloud with HP Software (MOE, CSA and CDA)
  • HP Public Cloud offering
  • HP Managed Cloud offerings Enterprise Cloud Services
  • View inside HP Labs (Smart Cooling technology)
  • Connecting the dots within Converged Infrastructure strategy
  • HP View on Cloud Futures

Additionally, there’s a plan to include an HP Labs tour and well as visits from external customer speaker from Puerto Rico and/or the region.

Checking out the above information I started to wonder more and more, as the days get closerI am getting more excited to be able to delve into the HP Cloud offerings.  One of the parts Im anticipating is visiting one of the labs. Who doesn’t like seeing inside of tech centers? Best part I get to document the whole thing! I will be tweeting live from the event as it unravels.

Nerd’s Blurt

This is my 1st Tech Day style event and honestly I’m excited! I last visited Puerto Rico in 2002 while doing some training for the military. I have great memories and am expecting the same great time this go around. Some how I find Puerto Rico doing something that I love! HP has a diverse portfolio and I’m hoping to learn more about what they got to offer and share that with you all.

  • Couldn’t agree more, waking up the morning I’m flying out west for VMworld is like Christmas in August for me. Being a small tech guy at a credit union but keeping up with everyone in this arena is a challenge but so much fun!
