News from Around the Storage Block – from HPEStorageGuy Calvin Zito

I want to help get you caught up on what’s going on Around the Storage Block:

  • We tend to talk a lot about 3PAR and HPE Nimble Storage – but here’s a great post from HPE VP Chris Powers about new HPE MSA entry storage innovations. I would bet there are more MSAs out there than any other array in the industry – so get caught up on the MSA with Chris’ post.

  • VMware Virtual Volumes (VVols) is a fantastic technology that both 3PAR and HPE Nimble Storage customers can take advantage of. At VMworld last month, VMware VVols expert Pete Flecha gave a short presentation in our booth on why VVols are simpler, smarter, and faster. It’s a great overview of VVols.

  • Speaking of VMworld, we hosted bloggers in a fast-paced Q&A session talking about the VMware and HPE relationship, HPE GreenLake, Storage, and our Dev Community. You can check it out on demand on this ATSB blog post.

  • Last month I mentioned our HPE Storage channel on BrightTalk. There’s some good content there to check out The webcasts are always available on-demand.
