HPE Shadowbase Team Presents at N2TUG Meeting

GRAVIC - JULY 19 - 4
This past week, Paul and Paden Holenstein attended the N2TUG Meeting in Dallas. Thanks to American’s booking policies, both the to and from flights were oversold, and there was nary a seat left unoccupied. Sound familiar? Fortunately, the N2TUG venue at the Gaylord Texan Resort in Grapevine, Texas is close to the airport, rather large, and not filled to capacity. It is a terrific hosting location for the event, which was well-attended (about 75 attendees in total) with extensive representation by HPE and ISV partners, along with respectable representation by the user community.

Diane Funkhouser (HPE Liaison to N2TUG) and Bill Honaker (N2TUG President) kicked off the event, welcoming everyone. Then, Ken Goldman (Director, HPE NonStop Sales for North America) gave us an overview of HPE sales and strategy for the first half of the year. Meg Watson (Master Software Engineer) of HPE’s Advanced Technology Center (ATC), offered insight into powerful ways of leveraging Devops environments on the NonStop. Later, Justin Simonds presented an interesting research presentation on the history of artificial intelligence, and the vendors presented on their wares and new features.

Paden and Paul Holenstein tag-teamed the HPE Shadowbase Use Cases presentation, with Paden describing the use cases and Paul adding details for our exciting new and upcoming future features. We are happy to share this with whomever may have missed it, please contact us. After the meeting, we all retired to the San Antonio terrace for libations and refreshments. We would like to thank Bill and Diane for their extensive work on this event. A good time was had by all! Congratulations to Koteswara Silla of JCPenney for winning our Beats earbud headphones prize.
