A way forward for enterprise IT

IT is under tremendous pressure to move faster and be more agile. Complex manual processes and non-integrated infrastructure can’t provide the power, simplicity, and speed necessary to meet the demands of the enterprise. Apps are growing 5x faster than IT can deliver, managing the IT stack consumes 80% of time and budgets, and cloud expenses are increasing rapidly. Hyperconverged infrastructure systems empower IT to overcome these challenges, so you can reduce the cost and complexity of your IT environment and deliver the technology your organisation needs.

Hyperconvergence solves common business problems

The built-in capabilities in hyperconverged infrastructure technology help organisations address a range of critical challenges for managing infrastructure.

Data centre consolidation

Minimise your data centre footprint for lower upfront costs, greater operational efficiency, and improved performance.

Data protection and disaster recovery

Protect your data in a fraction of the time required by legacy solutions with end-to-end data protection and automated disaster recovery.

VDI scalability

Scale up VDI with unmatched performance. Get more virtual desktops on less hardware and globally backup, restore, or clone a VM in three clicks or less.

Unification of remote and branch offices

Remove distance as a limitation with built-in data efficiency and protection for ROBOs, cost-effective scalability, and centralised management.

Compatibility with hybrid cloud

Get enterprise-level performance, reliability, and control with the efficiency, flexibility, and economics of cloud.

Optimisation of Tier-1 apps

Improve the performance and recovery time of Tier-1 applications like Microsoft Exchange, SQL Server, and Oracle.

A modern infrastructure

Achieve the true power of hyperconvergence by combining your entire infrastructure into a simple, flexible building block with full consolidation of your software and hardware devices below the hypervisor.

Scalable x86 platform

Placing all your IT infrastructure below the hypervisor on a scalable x86 platform reduces your data centre devices by a ratio of 10:1.

Built-in data protection and recovery

End-to-end data protection and automated disaster recovery reduces storage and bandwidth requirements, resulting in more recovery points and enhanced VM protection.

Single, unified system

Businesses achieve significant IT operational efficiency with a unified system that reduces the overhead of managing disparate resources.

Support for mission-critical applications

Built-in efficiency and data protection makes it easier to manage essential applications, increasing performance and reducing recovery time.

Success in action

Transportation

Pitt Ohio, a Pennsylvania trucking company, replaced its legacy infrastructure with HPE SimpliVity, resulting in simplified management, reduced data centre sprawl, and improved data protection and disaster recovery, all at a 3-year cost savings of $250,000.

Healthcare

St. John’s Riverside Hospital, a healthcare provider in Greater NYC, transformed its IT environment with HPE SimpliVity, benefiting from integrated data protection, reduced backup times, and improved performance for essential applications.

Utility

Guelph Hydro, a Canadian electric company, minimised its data centre footprint, reduced power costs, and improved virtual desktop performance, resulting in increased user satisfaction and a sharp reduction in VDI-related support calls.

Technology Services

Syntrophos, a shared service centre in the Netherlands, eliminated significant risk and cost associated with data recovery, enabled better SLAs, and achieved a 4X reduction in CapEx and OpEx with hyperconverged infrastructure.

We have significantly reduced the complexity of our IT environment and now have a much more efficient backup solution. In the next year, we will greatly reduce the maintenance costs for our IT infrastructure.
