I am in Madrid this week, as a guest of Hewlett Packard. The company’s European roadshow, Technology@Work, is in town for two days, showing existing and prospective customers some of the ways in which HP’s Converged Infrastructure can help them meet the growing challenge of continuing to grow IT capacity as data centres fill, power grids reach capacity, and budgets fall.

A few of us took the opportunity to sit down with Iain Stephen (VP Enterprise Storage and Servers, UK & Ireland) and Martin Riley (Programme Manager for Technology@Work) from HP yesterday evening, and the result is now available as a podcast. Also participating in the conversation were HP’s Becca Taylor,  Martin Macleod, Massimiliano Galeazzi, Patrick Husband, and Hans Vredevoort.

The conversation was recorded on a shiny new Ivy Worldwide Blue Snowball microphone that none of us had ever used before, in a room that was a little bigger than we’d have liked. All in all, though, I’m pleasantly surprised by the result. Have a listen, and see what you think.

Disclosure: our expenses were covered by Ivy Worldwide, on behalf of HP.
