HP Announcements from VMWorld 2015 San Francisco

This week I have been asked to live-stream from the HP booth at VMWorld. New announcements from HP regarding virtualization, thin clients, storage, and more. Virtualization is a key component in today’s workforce. From being able to access everything you need via the Internet ( mainly a corporate cloud), to giving you a machine that will protect the corporate data if stolen or poached.

You can watch it all here on Geekazine below. Feel free to watch the sessions already recorded.
