GDT will host our ever popular monthly GDT Flight Club at Unlawful Assembly Brewing Company on March 19. “Unlawful assembly” is a legal term referring to a group of people with mutual intent to disturb the peace in some way. This could also easily describe the IT industry – great minds constantly challenging the established mode of thinking and encouraging unbridled innovation. Which is why it’s perfect that this month’s event is sponsored by HPE, HP, and Veeam.
HPE and HP are well-known in the industry for their innovation. In fact, a quick Google search on “HPE innovation” only yields 3.88M results! HPE and HP have extended their innovative approach to their server and laptop products providing their customers a way to fight off another form of unlawful assembly—hackers—with their security features.
HPE’s Proliant Servers include Silicon Root of Trust, which anchors essential firmware to the custom HPE iLO remote management chip. This bond creates an immutable fingerprint that verifies the firmware code is valid and uncompromised so the server won’t boot with compromised firmware. In the unlikely event that your firmware is breached, you will be able to restore to a previous known good state upon detection. HPE is the only server vendor to offer the Silicon Root of Trust and, as a result, has been designated a 2019 Cyber Catalyst cybersecurity solution. Quite a defense for your datacenter.
Veeam, a leader in the backup space with the fastest and most reliable data recovery in virtual environments, helps you extend your defense beyond your servers and into your data. Regardless of where your data resides—virtual/physical systems, public/private/hybrid/multi-cloud, or SaaS services—Veeam ensures your data is always available, protected, and actively working. Their latest release of Veeam Availability Suite V10 demonstrates how they continue to drive innovation in the backup industry.
While travelling may be frowned upon on the basketball court, it’s a fact of life for road warriors in the business world. HP’s Elite business laptops are the most secure PCs with exquisite design for the ultra-mobile workforce. HP Elite PCs are built with hardware-enforced security features and layers of protection all around the OS to proactively prevent threats and provide quick recoveries in the event of a breach. HP Sure Sense takes things a step further and uses the power deep learning to instinctively recognize and stop never-before-seen threats. If you are a road warrior, you’ll want to learn about HP’s Elite Dragonfly notebook, the world’s lightest compact business convertible 2 in 1, at this month’s Flight Club.
Finally, if learning about the industry-leading technology mentioned above isn’t enough to entice you to travel over to this month’s GDT Flight Club, this Flight Club will also play host to a NCAA March Madness basketball bracket competition. March 19 is the first full day of the 2020 NCAA Basketball Tournament and is one of the best sports days of the year. We’ll also be giving away gift cards for learning more about HP, HPE, and Veeam products.
