HP Seeds Cloud Migrations

HP has as broad a portfolio as anyone. And to support cloud services, you need virtualization, security, applications and management tools. HP is putting this kind of technology toward services that support, at least for now, Amazon and Microsoft cloud platforms.

Personal note: I'll be travelling to Redmond this week and will hopefully have worthy substitutes for the Wednesday and Friday editions. Treat 'em like you treat me -- with much kindness and regular bashings!
