Unlock the value of your data with consumption-based infrastructure

HPE GreenLake with Nutanix Era for Databases

If your organization is like most enterprises, your high-performance databases are supported by traditional infrastructure. This means that discrete compute, storage, and network resources within your data center are carrying different parts of the overall workload to support database operations. You might think that this is beneficial load balancing, but think again.

The reality is that siloed data center operations create major challenges for your IT team when managing databases. 50% of respondents list keeping IT infrastructure up to date as a top challenge due to operational complexity.  1 Managing segregated workloads results in burdensome manual processes that can expose your database to costly human error. In fact, almost one-third (30.8%) of the IT service and data center operators surveyed had experienced an IT service outage with significant impact in the past three years.  2


In addition to high maintenance costs, database sprawl and increased security risk, siloed operations on traditional infrastructure result in slow provisioning, inflexibility, poor quality insights, and expensive workarounds for disaster recovery. To make matters worse, your growing business is demanding faster performance, more agility and reduced costs. Traditional infrastructure simply can’t support all these operational demands at scale. You’ll need a new approach.
