Join us on a virtual event exploring the new HP G6 servers

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 1-Apr-2009 10:36

Yesterday I was in Sydney (Australia) attending the Intel Xeon 5500 processor event launch. This processor is the server version of the Nehalen family. Quite a few interesting server designs in the demo pit (HP, IBM, Dell, Acer, Fujitsu), and an enthusiastic Intel speech about the new server processor - which is quite impressive.

Basically Intel says this is the biggest leap in terms of performance from one generation to another when comparing the historical jumps from version to version since the first Intel Xeon processors.

Anyway, moving from Intel to HP. I am one of ten bloggers invited to attend a two day tech gathering with HP engineering and marketing teams in Houston, next Monday and Tuesday (6th - 7th April, Central Time). There we will have the chance to look at server technologies, including the new HP G6 servers based on the Intel Xeon 5500 processors,

While some of the agenda will be for the group visiting the offices, there's an opportunity for you to join in during a virtual event - the HP ProLiant web jam: the new G6. This virtual event is happening 7th April 2009 10am CDT. It will use a virtual expo technology where you will be able to enter a conference venue, roam through the exhibit hall, attend the sessions in the auditorium or  chat in the networking lounge. This is what a previous event looked like:



The bloggers attending the Tech Day event in Houston will also be in the HP ProLiant web jam: the new G6 event. Check the event page and scroll down to see who the other bloggers are.

By the way, Geekzone runs on an HP DL360 G5 as a Hyper-V guest machine.
