Jeffrey Powers hands the microphone to Chris Evans of LangtonBlue (http://www.langtonblue.com) for an interview with Lee Johns. The topic is the newest version of storage in HP - Converged Storage.
Bringing storage in a data center through converged utility storage. Merging IT as a service so customers can get scalable storage. Then you have convergance for individual areas.
"The real power of the Converged Virtual space is that it is truly standardized - The technologies that we are building throughout the company leverage from Proliant (http://www.geekazine.com/tag/proliant)and blade system DNA." Says Johns. "it can be a standard Proliant, a blade system or virtual machine."
By using Virtal appliances by HP (http://www.geekazine.com/tag/hp), you can get a fully supported solution, certified with VMWare (http://www.geekazine.com/tag/vmware)and Microsoft (http://www.geekazine.com/tag/microsoft). Therefore, you can do real world work and leverage from a remote site.
They also talk about Store360, which is a part of Converged Storage. It's role is to help standardize storage with a common OS. They also talk 3Par and it's role in CS.
