It’s easy to get distracted and even stressed out this time of the year. Many of us in North America are still recovering from tryptophan induced comas brought on by the Thanksgiving holiday. It’s nice to have that little break, because we all know that the first two weeks of December is the only time left before the end of the year to get EVERYTHING done.
Whether you are attending HP Discover in Frankfurt or the Gartner Data Center Summit next week, you’ll realize that the data center industry is alive and kicking. Data center needs continue to grow with the explosion of data and the long-term trend towards analytics; at the same time companies are coming up with new and innovative solutions to meet the needs of the market.
I will be attending HP Discover in Frankfurt from December 4-6th. A couple of specific solutions I am super excited about are in the space of mission critical computing and storage. HP in conjunction with Intel recently launched new Superdome 2 and Integrity Servers based on the Intel® Itanium® Processor 9500 series. These systems are faster than previous generations and can give users up to a 33% gain in TCO.
HP’s storage division will be announcing something big; you'll have to wait to see what that is.
If this isn’t enough to pique your interest, be sure to visit the Intel Booth at HP Discover, #101 and see what is cool and new for the datacenter. You can always follow me at @ITSandhya on Twitter for the latest news.
