This week’s Tech Field Day roundtable discussion focuses on the presentation given by HP at our Boston event.

The Field Day delegates were keen on discussing the overall HP strategy, returning time and again to HP’s complete end-to-end product lineup. They were concerned that they had not yet seen HP’s cohesive strategy, but many felt that they could see it emerging as management and product changes are being made. The scale-out NAS concept impressed the delegate crew, and they praised its feature set and the logic of integrating this technology in the company’s newly-unified hardware stack.

Joining HP for this roundtable discussion were the fifteen Tech Field Day Boston delegates.
