HPE Verity
June 8th, 2016 by NerdBlurt

Last week Hewlett Packard Enterprise announced HPE Verity. Now I work for HPE in the business unit and am responsible for the social media. To me it is exciting to see the behind the scenes of what happens when you are launching a product or an update with new features, to be able to finally talk about something you have known about for months. Today is that day I get to talk to you about HPE Verity.

What is HPE VeHPE Verityrity?

HPE Verity is a next-generation, unified IM&G framework that provides a single source of truth

  • Information management & governance applications and services are integrated within a common framework.
  • Built on a SaaS architecture it can be deployed in virtually any geography to support data sovereignty requirements
  • With native, in-place analytics information is not moved from application to application but is available directly within Verity

HPE Verity’s set of applications and services will uniquely help organizations comprehensively manage, govern, and extract actionable insights from enterprise information.

So really what you are looking at is the start of what HPE is touting it’s Next-Gen Information and Governance framework, the stepping stone to many new products. Now working for the group I have insider knowledge and the greater vision but I like paying my bills so I will only talk about what I can when I can.

In a session during HPE Discover the company’s Semi-annual conference David Jones and Stephen Spellicy gave folks a closer look at HPE Verity. You can read a recap of that session here

I am excited for for is to come! I will also be writing some more posts hopefully on here on some of the things I am learning about in the information governance space. I am going to stop here now as I want to write up a quick day one recap of HPE Discover from Las Vegas.

I would also like to note I wrote this on my own as HPE is my employer this is my blog and any writing on here is solely my own opinion or that of any guest writers.

I have seen an uptick in the Pets vs Cattle arena of late and wanted to add to the discussion.  As a technologist, I am not religious about any one tool, product, operating system or vendor – I will always chose the right platform based on system requirements.  To take an independent stance in that regard you have to first accept that no vendor has a product that meets the demands of every possible business scenario.  Not only do I not care about all those things I mentioned above, I don’t care about my servers or virtual servers (and whatever platform they are running on).

So, what do I care about then? Data.  Step out of your role for a second and ask what people, what your organization, your CEO really cares about – its not server up time, although server up time plays a roll, whether you are using containers or whether you are “DevOps” – again your CEO to your office manager could care less if you have organized around the characteristics/tenants/culture of DevOps.  What they care about is that they have access to the data they need to do their job.  All of the other things we do is simply a means to provide access to that data.

The goal is to engineer an environment where data is protected and accessible according to all of your business requirements so that people can do their jobs.  Hopefully your organization has purchased or built the applications that deliver that data in such a way that allow you to simply treat them like cattle – a web or application server not responding, no worries delete it and spin up a new one – just make sure you are treating your data like a pet!

Data is my only pet, everything else is cattle

I get asked by my friends and family not in the tech business what is EMC World & why am I so excited to attend.

EMC World was just a thought but I was fortunate to win a registration into this conference from EMC Symmetrix group via a Twitter contest. Not that I wouldn’t attend but for my personal situation trying to explain to Maura why I want to spend $2k+ on a week long conference and not a family vacation wouldn’t fly to well.  So starting Sunday May 9th 2010 I will be experiencing this “Superbowl of Storage” as stated by Stuart Miniman of EMC.

What is EMC World?

 EMC answer: I checked http://www.emcworld.com and clicked into the overview page.

EMC World is the ultimate educational forum for all EMC customers and partners.

Learn how to put private cloud computing in action from EMC engineers, customers, and partners. Participate in 500+ breakout sessions, technology updates, keynotes, lectures, live demonstrations, hands-on workshops, and birds-of-a-feather sessions.

Challenge your expertise with tutorials, business tracks, technical training, and developer sessions ranging from novice to expert.

Explore integrated solutions with exhibitors in the Solutions Pavilion.

Connect with your peers at fun and informative networking events.

What is EMC World to me?

 My perception of EMC World is a place where I can solidify connections that I have made in the “Virtual world” & to learn on subjects that interest me.

I’m just getting started into the whole storage front and have ALOT to learn but it fascinates me so much.

My posts covering EMC World  are going to be based off exactly what I am, a new comer to the Storage Industry and a 1st time EMC World Attendee.


All my posts on this blog for EMC World will be tagged w/ EMCWorld2010 on my blog and #emcworld from @ldanakos on twitter.

I plan on tweeting live from sessions and then recording some key points for blog posts later. Also to use in discussion once EMC World is done with on the ECN – EMC Community Network discussion forum found at http://www.community.emc.com
