Meet the eleven #vExperts at HP.  Very proud and honored to be of this excellent group.
By Calvin Zito, @HPStorageGuy Today is my birthday and as I get older, celebrating a birthday really isn't a big deal.

From our HP 3PAR StoreServ all-flash product manager.... really good technical detail here.
By Priyadarshi (Pd), Sr. Product Manager, HP 3PAR Storage Last June we launched HP 3PAR StoreServ 7450, our all-flash array. The message was Performance without Compromises and rightfully so. At that time, HP 3PAR StoreServ 7450 was the only all-flash that could deliver the performance (550K IOPS at or below 0.7 millisecond response time) AND all the rich data services like snapshots, replication, 3-data-center disaster recovery, vMSC certificati...

QoS in a midrange storage array?  Yes we can! Tier-1 and All-Flash too. In my best Austin Powers voice, "Polymorphic Baby!".
By Matthew Morrissey, 3PAR Product Marketing Manager, HP Storage QoS defined: with an eye to controlling service metrics requirements Quality of Service (QoS) is an essential component in delivering modern, highly scalable, multi-tenant storage architectures. The use of QoS moves advanced storage systems away from the legacy approach of delivering I/O requests with “best effort” in mind. It tackles the problems of the “noisy neighbor,” delivering...

I shared this on Twitter but have to share it here (because I have no shame).  My daughter posted this to my FB page saying, "Rocking the Napoleon Dynamite before it was cool". It was cool? When?
