Executive vision: Storage takes top priority at HP

When Hewlett-Packard Co. CEO Carly Fiorina set forth her technology priorities for the company last year, storage made the short list. Customers were telling HP that they planned to spend three times as much on storage as on servers in 2003. Since then, HP has been in the process of ``converting ourselves from a server company that happens to have storage to a storage company that happens to have servers,'' says Nora Denzel, the executive brought in from outside of HP to run the storage operation. It's no small task for Denzel, a 15-year storage industry veteran. But in an interview with SearchStorage editors Paul Gillin and Michele Hope at the Merrill Lynch Storage Technology conference in Santa Barbara, Calif. this week, Denzel said HP's goal is to be no less than the top storage company in the industry. The key will be leveraging OpenView, HP's widely used systems management suite.
