This year at HPE Discover, I decided to put my Kodak PixPro SP360 to some major use. The task was to record the Blogger Coffee talks at the event. Each one is filled with lots of great content and I wanted to not only capture the speakers, but also the people asking the questions.
Paul Muller on Digital Disruption
VP of HPE Strategic Marketing Paul Muller has a style all his own. He disrupts corporate look and feel. So he works very well in Strategic Marketing and Disruption. He answered bloggers questions and how HPE is looking at “how to build a better mouse trap”. After all, HPE is focusing on “The Machine“, which is expected out next year.
Muller goes to talk about how different businesses have different needs. What is good for one is not great for another. And sometimes a cog in one business’ wheel might need to be adjusted or built upon to become a better cog for another business.
Another conversation is social media for business. Controlling for a better customer experience and make better decisions. Taking feedback and putting them into existing and new products.
HPE Cloud Coffee Talk
Tom Norton, Mark Inerrante, Jeremy Willenborg, Angela Rizzo and Chris Steffen talk on HPE Cloud. Stephen Spector moderates the event. HPE announced Hellion CloudSystem 10 with Cloud Suite, Helion OpenStack 3.0 and a partnership with Docker to create containers in the cloud for apps.
Questions include Eucalyptus, how to work cross-infrastructure, data collection and distribution, and cost.

Manish Goel and Rick Lewis talk with the Bloggers on Storage and Converged. Moderated by Calvin Zito and Becca Taylor, the topics talked about Full Stack and an industry view from Storage. Manish addresses the focus, especially as Dell and EMC are still merging. Composed infrastructure and Dynamic resources on workloads. Converged and Storage are “Merged at the Hip” as Rick Lewis stated in the video.
HPE introduced a 15.36 SSD drive, update to Composable Infrastructure and the first platform called Synergy, OneView software core update, and Hyperconverged 380 platform (which started shipping in May). HPE also extended their all-flash on 3PAR with the new drives, adding hundreds of Terrabytes to systems.
All videos are in 360, so you can see who is talking and interacting.
