CRN Exclusive: HP's Whitman On Dell, Taxes And Windows 8


What are some other big opportunities for partners?

We have now got a very compelling line of 1u, 2u, 4u blades and we really want the partners to aggressively sell those units. Where there is a big opportunity for partners, I think, is still networking and storage. We have got a lot of partners who have made a lot of money now on 3Par midtier storage. I have seen more interest in HP Networking in the last six months than I saw in all of the previous year.
