Gravic attended the first Latin American NonStop Users Group Meeting (LATUG) at the Renaissance Hotel in picturesque Santiago, Chile. At the welcome cocktail reception, Paul and Paden Holenstein enjoyed watching a performance of the country’s national “Cueca” dance while sampling local wine and cheese. They discussed regional opportunities with Alfredo Villarroel, Fabian Manfredi, and Lars Plum from HPE, among others. At the show, they listened to vendor presentations showcasing new solutions and a use case on blockchain. Plum demonstrated significantly scaling-up a Virtualized NonStop server’s processing power in under a minute. The Holensteins presented HPE Shadowbase use case solutions and product updates. That evening, the group shuttled to a local restaurant for a concluding reception. Congratulations to Rodrigo Soto from Banco de Credito e Inversiones for winning our Beats earphones!
