McCartney's Cloud Gets Wings
Sir Paul McCartney needs no introduction. And when his company, McCartney Productions Limited (MPL), wanted a cloud infrastructure in which to store and serve his archives -- his music, video, pictures, lyrics, documents and other content that would make even casual Beatles fans drool -- the Walrus turned to HP's Converged Infrastructure, which through a set of hardware, software and services built McCartney's and his company's cloud from the ground up and launched a public-facing Web site where fans of "the cute one" could get up close and personal.
HP first unveiled the plans to launch the cloud in 2010 and the public facing site launched this year. Recently, CRN caught up with HP to get a magical mystery tour of what products and services make McCartney's cloud tick. Here's what we found.
