Advances in FS/VM 6.1 + Performance
Speaker: Ravindra Kini, Senior System Software Engineer, Hewlett Packard Enterprise
As next generation Enterprise data centers strive to provide a high level of service for their customers and
 applications, there exists a constant underlying goal to do so at reduced complexity and cost. However, meeting those goals without sacrificing performance or availability has so far been elusive. Advancements in HP-UX File System and Data management solutions provide a full suite of data and application availability tools in a single solution to bring performance, availability, and flexibility to the data center.  Combined with unmatched read and write capabilities, enterprises can achieve better results at a much lower cost than alternatives.
