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.
HPE Hyper Converged solutions provide a simple, efficient, software-defined platform that combines everything below the hypervisor, delivering the agility and economics of cloud with the enterprise capabilities of on-prem infrastructure.
Hyperconvergence solves common business problems
The built-in capabilities in hyperconverged infrastructure technology help organisations address a range of critical challenges for managing infrastructure.
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
HPE Hyper Converged solutions help organisations across diverse verticals and geographical locations solve their IT challenges and meet their business needs.
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.
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.
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.
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.Dave Stroik
