They say what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, but for one week only that will not be true. Since I am lucky enough to be going to HP Discover Vegas as a guest blogger and intend to bring you as much news as possible whilst I’m there. For those that aren’t familiar HP Discover is HP’s largest bi-annual trade show, taking place each year first in America then in Europe towards the end of the year. It’s a big event with 10,000+ delegates expected and the show consists of presentations, lectures and hands on experiences on the HP Discover floor.
HP tend to save their biggest and best announcements for HP Discover to give you a flavour the announcements at the last show were the 7440 model, enhanced 7000 c models, NAS and The SSMC. That really was a big news bundle and it will be interesting to see if HP have maintained the momentum and we are due another crop of announcements. Trying to second guess what is coming is always difficult, there have long been rumours of new models including Meg Whitman’s comments last year regarding a low end 3PAR offering. Compression must be somewhere in the pipeline, if for nothing more than to compete on paper with the new breed of AFA’s. What do you think the announcements will be?
The show kicks off on the 2nd of June, keep in touch with all the latest new by subscribing to the blog and following me on Twitter. Details of the other bloggers has not been published yet, when they are I will update this post so you can follow them as well.
If you’re going don’t forget to give me a shout. To spot me look for a cross between George Clooney and Brad Pitt, hopefully see you around.
Finally let me know what to put my money on, Red or Black?
