HP Technology@Work On Tour 2011 – Madrid

May 5, 2011 — 2 Comments

The HP Technology@Work On Tour arrived yesterday to Madrid. This event has been a great opportunity for everyone to see the proposals from HP for Converged Infrastructure, Network Security and Datacenter Transformation.

The event is not as big as the HP Tech@Work from other years or the HP Discover that will be held in Las Vegas next June, instead HP in EMEA decided to bring a small show to several European cities like Paris, Madrid or Amsterdam and show there our stuff in all its greatness :-)

I didn’t planned in the beginning to go to HPTAW2011, I really had a lot of work to do this week, but suddenly I found on Monday that Hans Vredevoort (@hvredevoort) was coming to Madrid invited as Press and I really wanted to meet him. Hans is a great guy and I like to chat with him on Twitter, he’s also an MVP and the owner of Hyper-V.nu, one the top blogs about Microsoft Hyper-V.

We had the chance to share a couple of beers and have a fantastic conversation about the state of the industry, virtualization, blade servers, storage, HP 3PAR and HP products in general. We also made a small tour through the booth to see the demos and speak with some of my colleagues from HP  and from sponsors like Brocade, Microsoft and VMware. I want to make a special mention about my colleague Simon Leech from HP Networking who was very kind and talked with us about HP Tipping Point security products

Finally I had the opportunity to take a couple of pictures of the booth and the almighty Superdome2 :-D

I don’t want to finish my post without mentioning th people from the registering area, I wasn’t registered to the event but since I was an HP employee they were so kind to provide me with the proper accreditation that allowed to enter the booth.

    Hi Juan,

    It was great meeting you in your hometown Madrid. Next time we go find a few nice bars and restaurants.
    In the future I guess you might to write “a converted Hyper-V virtualization expert” ;-)
