HP Opens Digital Library of Paul McCartney Works and Memorabilia to the Web

HP Enterprise Services has teamed up with Paul McCartney’s media company MPL Communications to create a library of the singer’s works and related memorabilia. HP and MPL announced the project back in September of 2010.

Over one million items are stored online, including photos, videos from live concerts, rolls of film, videotapes, music recordings, works of art and more. The digitized assets are stored on HP Converged Infrastructure, made up of modular HP servers, storage and networking software.

MPL had a database of the assets prior to this team-up, but the process of finding a specific one was compicated. HP believed its technology made finding content quicker and more efficient.

“It’s really exciting because even if I’m out on tour anywhere in the world, I will be able to say, okay, ‘Wings 1976 tour’ and instantly, it will come up,” said McCartney. “You’ve got all the information, all the photos from it. And you’ll have written accounts — personal accounts and critical accounts — of what happened.”
