Greetings, HPE Community Members!
Dear Community Members,
Our final event of the year took place a few weeks ago, and what a success it was. It was great to join you as the Connect President and see the team in full action. It was a pleasure to meet a combination of customers, partners, and HPE employees from around the globe.
There were some great insights from HPE, the opportunity to understand the NonStop landscape in the future, and some brilliant technical minds building wreck’em cars and fighting it out for popping balloons!
A final thanks to NTI for being the overall sponsor of the event. I really hope that you will join us in 2024 in Monterey Bay.

The following is the original message:
