The advent of digital transformation is increasing the intensity and complexity of tomorrow’s workloads, which in turn is adding significant pressure on traditional IT infrastructure. Whatever precious resources that could have been used to drive digital transformation or innovation are spent keeping the lights on instead.
Many organisations turn to the public cloud, which promises the speed and agility to stay competitive in a rapidly changing business landscape. Yet, they are unable to meet the performance and control needed to manage complex workloads efficiently, or the protection and privacy needed in today’s volatile cybersecurity climate.
Thankfully, there’s HPE SimpliVity. It combines x86 resources, storage, and networking in a single hyperconverged system to deliver the best of both worlds: the agility and speed of cloud, and the performance and security of on-premises. Enterprise success will follow.
Speeds up time to market
There’s no denying that we live in the age of instant gratification. When customers demand for something, they want it now. For businesses, this means the one that puts a product out first captures the end-user attention first, That’s why reducing time-to-market is critical when you’re looking to stay ahead of your competitors.
HPE SimpliVity gives your enterprise an all-flash hyperconverged solution, eliminating the need for workload-specific environments. In a practical sense, it means you will have a fluid set of resources that can be combined to meet the unique needs of each app.
Furthermore, all-flash performance accelerates your application performance, providing unrivalled backup and data recovery speeds. Did you know that backing up or recovering a 1TB Virtual Machine (VM) takes only a minute? That’s faster than brewing a cup of coffee. Ultimately, it gives you the freedom to continuously build, test and deploy applications—accelerating the rate at which innovation thrives,
The unprecedented pace of technological advancement is a double-edged sword. On one hand, you have the tools to ensure your products and services are sophisticated and address the end-user needs. On the other, you must constantly innovate in order to stay relevant. Failure to do so will result in being obsolete within years.
Ensuring your day-to-day operations is kept simple and efficient is key to staying ahead of the curve—simply because it frees up more of your employees’ time to do more innovating. HPE SimpliVity enables this by combining policy-based VM-centric management with powerful automation and intelligence, making it easy for even IT generalists to manage. The result? a 91% increase in time for innovation.
At the same time, the single-pane management system gives you a complete overview of VM environments, data centres and remote offices. This centralises the control over your entire infrastructure, making it easier to pinpoint bottlenecks as well as areas where innovation can happen.
Reducing costs is on the agenda for every business. Sit in a boardroom meeting and you’ll realise every business decision goes towards improving the bottom line. As such, even your IT infrastructure should stretch your business dollar and ultimately increase profitability.
HPE SimpliVity allows you to maximise your returns thanks to its cloud-like economics. In fact, simply deploying the platform reduces total cost of ownership (TCO) by 2.8 times compared with traditional IT—and up to two times compared with public cloud.
The platform also utilises always-on deduplication and compression to reduce capacity utilisation by up to 10 times across primary and backup storage, ensuring maximised efficiency to make the most of your IT.
Digital transformation is here, and it’s up to you to decide if you want to rethink boundaries or simply be a follower. The digital age presents significant growth opportunities that, when captured, push you to the front of the race and enjoy great business success.
