I can’t believe it’s already been almost a year since we left the Fira Barcelona in Spain for HP Discover Barcelona 2013. That was one of the best Discover events I have been a part of, and I’ve been to a few over the year. The numbers speak barce_2351656b.jpgfor themselves, as shown on the right. Last year’s event was so spectacular that we couldn’t help but return for a 2nd straight year! But as amazing as last year’s conference was, I am even more
 excited for what’s in store this time around.


The Performance & Lifecycle Virtualization team has been working extremely hard all year to bring you the new version of HP LoadRunner and Performance Center as well as our much anticipated launch of HP StormRunner Load.
