HPE Discover Day 1 and 2

I was so happy to be invited as an influencer to HPE Discover this year. This is a wrap up of my experiences from the event so far.

People

One of things I always spend a lot of time on is the community. This is something I’m very passionate about being a VMUG Leader in Denmark.

The Tech community is a tribe and a place to form true relationships. Being the first HPE Discover for me, there is a lot of new faces but also some familiar ones.

I finally got to meet the people behind vBrownbag. Jeffrey and Alistair. I’ve known them from Twitter and VMworld since forever but haven’t had a chance to sit down and talk with them. They are handling the live streaming of HPECoffeeTalk and works as a moderator for the Q&As. On the first night I had a great conversation with Alistair about vBrownbag and communities in general. I would love vBrownbag to visit VMUG Denmark I just need a way to sponsor their visit (Any ideas?)

Hvordan håndterer du et Cyber angreb?

I min tid som systemadministrator, var en del af mit ansvarsområde: risikoanalyse, beredskabsplan og Disaster Recovery. Jeg husker tydeligt den første Disaster Recovery test, der skulle laves. Det var dengang at agentbaserede (og komplicerede) backupprodukter var førende. Vi fik konsulenthjælp udefra, og der var så mange dele, der skulle passe sammen, både fysisk opsætning, men også det faktum at fx genskabe Active Directory ikke bare, er at knipse med fingrene. Jeg har revet mig i håret mange gange og husker tydeligt da vi fik Veeam. Herefter lavede jeg en årlig test af hele vores miljø og fik det testet og nedlagt – hurtigt.

Nu er jeg selvstændig og ser IT fra en anden side. Jeg har været så heldig, at være med til, at facilitere et nyopstartet tiltag: Arrow Podcast. I den forbindelse, talte jeg med Peter Troels Brahe, omkring Cyber Crisis Management. Han kom med flere gode pointer, jeg gerne ville have hørt , da jeg sad med ovenstående opgaver. Når man sidder i en it-afdeling spørger man sig selv: Har vi sikret os nok? Og hvad hvis uheldet alligevel er ude?

I episode 3 af Arrow Podcast fortæller Peter Troels Brahe omkring hvorfor man skal forvente et Cyber angreb, og hvordan man bedst forbereder sin virksomhed. Han har over 20 års erfaring fra forsvaret og fortæller omkring parallellerne mellem fysiske og Cyber ulykker.

HPE announcements May 24th 2017 – 3PAR, Nimble Storage and MSA

Last week I was at VeeamON in New Orleans with the Veeam Vanguard program. So much content and a great community feeling.

I was very lucky to catch up with Calvin Zito, HPE Storage Evangelist and he agreed on doing two interviews. The first one is a summary of the news focused on Nimble Storage and HPE. You can read more and watch the interview here on HPE storage blog.

I’ve been looking very much forward to showing you the second interview. Calvin Zito gave me a chance to hear all the announcements ahead of time and be able to share with you just as they announce. HPE Discover is in a couple of weeks and typically all announcements will be revealed at the event. This time so much other news will happening there and HPE storage team announce their news today.

The Perfect VeeamON Schedule

There is less than a week until VeeamON in New Orleans and I can’t wait to join.

I’m very lucky to be part of Veeam Vanguard program (and proud to be one of 3 female Veeam Vanguard in the world). Veeam Vanguard is a unique program with a very active community – the Slack Channel debates are endless and passionate. I don’t think I’ve seen more interaction in any community ever and I’m looking very much forward to catching up with all my Vanguard friends.

This year will be the first time I join VeeamON and my expectations are high. I usually join VMworld which is a bigger conference and I’m looking forward to also trying a more intimate crowd of 3000 attendees. The agenda tells me a lot of interesting experts will join and I’m looking forward to all the keynote speakers:

Sanjay Poonen, COO, Customer Operations, VMware, Mark Russinovich, CTO, Microsoft Azure, and Frank Palumbo, Senior VP, Cisco Global Datacenter & Virtualization Sales, Cisco, Bill Philbin, Senior VP and GM for Storage & Big Data Segment Solutions, Datacenter Infrastructure Group, Hewlett Packard Enterprise.
