Guests of the Week (6/9/17)
Andrew Wheeler, Fellow, Vice President and Deputy Director, HP Labs, and Kirk Bresniker, Fellow, Vice President and Chief Architect, HP Labs
Congratulations Andrew and Kirk! You are theCUBE’s Guests of the Week.
Necessity is the mother of invention, and what the technology industry needs right now is the capability to handle and manage the proliferation of data, along with the complexity of the Internet of Things. Hewlett Packard Enterprise Co. launched The Machine last November, promising a new architecture that provides limitless memory at the core of the system and distributes mesh computing to optimize the data created by devices. Does The Machine deliver?
Andrew Wheeler (pictured left), fellow, vice president and deputy director, HP Labs, at HPE, explained the need for the marketing hype at the last HPE Discover was an effort to engage the ecosystem and to get the community on board and begin contributing.
“Now we have been heads down, especially this last six months getting it all together. Think about what we showed [when we] first booted the thing in November. And now you know we’ve got it running at this scale, that’s really been the focus.” Wheeler said.
