For HP Discover in Frankfurt 2012 – We continue to keep the Cloud lights on for you

I think everyone who attended the HP Discover event in Frankfurt in early December 2012 would agree it was a great technology show…in my opinion I think it was the best Discover show I have attended to date. Granted it was extremely busy for me, but to all the customers I spoke to, I received a strong sense that they all felt it was a great investment of their time.


Like all technology shows, there is a ton of information to see on the exhibit floor, breakout session to attend and subject matter experts to talk to. So to help refresh your memory if you attended, or give you an opportunity to see what you missed if you did not get to Frankfurt, here is a summary of cloud breakout sessions that were presented. As in Discover in Las Vegas earlier in 2012, there was a core collection of Converged Cloud breakout sessions which were divided up under the following sub categories:
