The App is the Stack!

I wrote my first (and admittedly very amateurish) rap song. Here is the chronology of the inspiration behind it:

05/02/2017:  Nutanix announced that it’s software now runs on HPE
05/05/2017:  HPE VP Marketing, Paul Miller, wrote a post on HPE Community Home titled, Don’t be Misled…HPE and Nutanix are not Partners
05/12/2017:  I wrote what I thought was a polite post in response saying that HPE makes good servers, Nutanix makes good software and both organizations are contractually bound to support each other. Customers win.
05/22/2017: Miller came back with another article dissing my post. He directed several challenges to me as the author.

I thought about responding again with a conventional post, but Miller made claims such as, “By definition, hyperconverged is integrated hardware…”  I mean, how do I respond to something like that?  Besides, Josh Odgers already authored a technical 7-part blog series that decimates HPE’s ridiculously misleading emoji ad campaign targeting Nutanix (HPE subsequently ceased their campaign).

I kept thinking about Miller’s challenges, but decided rather than continue with boring blog post battles, I thought I’d have some fun and address his claims in rap (I’ve been told it’s called hiphop now…just shows how much I know about the genre). The lyrics are posted below, and you can listen to a rendition here that’s even set to a beat.
