Legacy IT - a world apart from NonStop!

HPE is pleased to have migrated to a very modern NonStop at the heart of its data center – what about you?


I have no ambitions whatsoever to become a collector of antique cars. Try as I might, I can see nothing attractive about vehicles built 25 or 50 years ago even as I know so many of my friends hold dear to them the vehicles that they once envied in their youth but never could afford. We have a 2003 Corvette parked in the garage and with each passing year I wonder whether or not we have kept it for too long. It’s only fifteen plus years old but Margo and I are in no hurry to sell it as it is our only choice for track day fun outings. On the other hand, there is so much about this Corvette that even with the passage of just a few years, looks “old fashioned.” There is barely an electronic aid to be found and with the exception of traction control and ABS, it’s close to being considered an “analogue car”. Perhaps one reason for keeping older cars with few electronic aids is that in th…

ETBC, Edinburgh – as successful as we expected it to be!

Well done, BITUG committee! Edinburgh, Scotland didn’t disappoint and the level of participation was tremendous with all keynote sessions very well attended …



We left for Edinburgh, Scotland, as planned. We had dinner at the airport, caught a flight to London where we enjoyed lunch at Euston Station before taking the train to Edinburgh.

Saw plenty of green hills and lots of sheep, mind you, and the weather was way warmer than we had anticipated. Yes, last Wednesday Scotland enjoyed warmer days than residents in Spain and even LA experienced.

There will be much more coverage of the social side of the event and the experiences we enjoyed in the company of other attendees will be covered in an upcoming post to our social blog, Buckle-Up, but …

Has a renewed sense of urgency taken hold inside HPE that is (positively) influencing the HPE NonStop team? Is HPE looking like a start-up, once again? Whatever you call it, a lot of positive news is coming from both of them and it's not just their new digs …


For a company with staff that doesn’t fly all that often, the Pyalla Technologies team – that’s Margo and me – will be heading to the airport late Saturday to begin our journey to Edinburgh, Scotland. Already this year we have flown back from Australia in January before escaping to Munich, Germany, in March for a couple of adult refreshments together with a couple of client meetings. Turns out this return trip to Europe in May, for the European (NonStop) Technical Boot Camp (ETBC) will be followed with a visit to HPE Discover in June. We have even managed to squeeze in one more trip to participate in N2TUG on June 27.

It also turns out that there is a significant uptick of interest in Regional User Group (RUG) events, no matter…
