Data Driven Talk

Data Driven Talk

By Enrico Signoretti
Comments, and opinions about data, data storage, cloud computing, and modern IT infrastructures. Recorded whenever and wherever I can, published on an irregular basis, directly from the field without editing and while things are happening. A disorganized and unstructured format of very short 5-minute episodes that are easy to consume while on the move.

Quick take on #HPEDiscover, stay tuned for more!
I'm driving to my home airport to take a flight for London, and tommorow I'll be attending A3 Communications' Technology Live event... So I thought to record this episode (yes, while driving, again!) Last week I attended HPE Discover in Las Vegas and I wanted to share with you a few thoughts about the company, its products and strategy. But this is just a short recording... Stay tuned for a full Voices in Data Storage episode (on GigaOM) to get  all the info you may want to know about HPE Primera, the new tier-0 platform launched during the event.
