Greetings Connect Community,
Summertime is here! The sun is out, the beach is packed, and the 2019 HPE Discover is officially in the books! Your Connect team was there to hear about all the latest and greatest from HPE and to provide some great presentations to the community at large.
While we all expected to hear about the latest with Hybrid IT, Edge Computing, Aruba, and all the other familiar HPE technologies, we received quite the welcomed surprise when Phil Davis took the stage at the General Session. Phil wowed the crowd with announcing HPE Infosight (AI Driven Operations for the Hybrid Cloud) and HPE Primera (Intelligent Storage for Mission Critical Applications). This set up the moment when Antonio announced that HPE’s entire product line will be available through subscription models by 2022. The market clearly liked this news (just take a quick look at the stock during the show days!). We will definitely be covering these announcements more in depth in future issues and, in the meantime, I encourage everyone to take a moment to read about them on the HPE website at https://www.hpe.com/us/en/solutions/infosight.html and https://www.hpe.com/us/en/storage/hpe-primera.html. It will be time well spent.
It’s an exciting time to be in the HPE ecosphere for customers, partners, and certainly all of us at Connect. We look forward to learning more about the new technologies and bringing their customers and partners into our great community!
With that, I invite you all to enjoy this latest edition of C2!
Connect Worldwide President
