IT complexity is not going away. Rather than a temporary disruption, it’s the daily reality of managing multiple new technologies, platforms, applications, endpoints and data volumes in today’s hyper-active digital business environment.
This brings a number of challenges and disadvantages, both for IT and for the business as a whole:
- Increased operational costs and resource burden
- Reduced flexibility and response times
- Reduced customer/user satisfaction and productivity
- Slower time to market for innovations
Whatever the source of the complexity, IT leaders are recognizing the need to simplify and control their IT infrastructures using hyper-convergence systems—the melding together of servers, storage and virtualization resources into a single appliance with streamlined management.
In a Hewlett Packard Enterprise-sponsored survey of almost 600 IT leaders in 22 countries, primary drivers for these converged systems included:
- 60% of respondents identifying cost reduction as their No. 1 one driver
- 51% wanted easier/faster deployment
- 46% needed to simplify data center scaling
Yet, as the buzz around hyper-convergence grows, department heads struggle to figure out exactly what it can and can’t do, and how it could impact their IT organization.
A Comprehensive Solution The HPE Hyper Converged System is an all-in-one compute, software-defined storage and intelligent virtualization solution that:
- Is designed to provide intuitive automation, federated life-cycle management, intelligence from analytics, and affordability with investment protection.
- Deploys at cloud speeds, simplifies IT operations and reduces costs—all with an upgrade path to composability.
- Delivers simple configuration, virtual machine modification and increased VM density
With lower cost of ownership and greater flexibility to meet more demands, your business will be able to deploy pre-validated, factory-tested configurations in weeks instead of months and set up IT services in minutes, not hours. All this comes with improved efficiency, simplicity and speed with integrated, workload-optimized systems.
