The network has become the central foundation of many IT operations. The IT infrastructure investment not only supports internal employee communications but also is the very linkage that drives ongoing revenue and growth. IDC found that customers were able to reduce IT costs, improve IT staff efficiency, increase availability for users, and trim time to market with new revenue-generating opportunities.
As the drive to "do more with less" becomes a mantra for many organizations, optimizing space utilization is a key goal of many IT departments. Storage continues to be one of the major cost components of today's infrastructure deployments. Thin technology, including thin provisioning, offers efficiency benefits that can significantly reduce both capital and operational costs. However, implementations of thin technologies differ with the storage vendors. This Edison Group report looks at thin provisioning technology from the major storage vendors in today's marketplace and compares the thin implementations from seven storage array platforms, including Hewlett-Packard's 3PAR StoreServ Storage arrays.
As business purposes have changed over the years, IT approaches and infrastructures have had to change in lock-step to serve them optimally. IT professionals are now combining the best of the centralized approach – via virtualization, federation, and clouds of all sorts – with the best of the decentralized model – via mobile and localized consumption and production. In this paper, Enterprise Strategy Group examines approaches to IT operational challenges and business requirements. Learn how HP Converged Storage’s comprehensive approach represents a logical evolution development in storage, delivering ease, flexibility and cost-efficiency all in one.
AgilOne is a cloud-based predictive intelligence company that is experiencing a high growth rate. The company needed to find, and quickly deploy, a scalable storage solution to support its big data performance and future scalability requirements. Today, utilizing its 3PAR StoreServ storage solutions, AgilOne boasts a lower cost per terabyte, higher efficiency, and the ability to rapidly accommodate its new customers.

Overcoming IT’s operational challenges based on infrastructure complexity is a serious issue.Not only is a piecemeal architecture difficult and inefficient to manage, but it is also very expensive when the Total Cost of Ownership is considered. Reducing that complexity not only frees up personnel but also budgetary resources.
Converged Infrastructure offers the opportunity for organizations to drastically increase their IT and user productivity at a significantly lower TCO. Improved IT efficiency and agility accelerates time to value by a significant margin.

In this white paper, we’ll explore the difference between two different approaches and highlight where and how dedicated servers can not only give you better performance, reliability, control and security, but can be just as attractive as cloud in terms of both flexibility and cost efficiency.
According to a survey by the IBM Center for Applied Insights and Oxford Economics, business leaders are becoming increasingly focused on the business value of cloud. Although the participant’s cloud strategies differ in terms of scope, platform and delivery models, the chief takeaway from the survey is that cloud is not just about cutting costs and driving efficiency—cloud fuels growth.
With a global monthly reach consisting of more than 500 million mobile users and billions of requests, Tapjoy historically relied heavily on their IT footprint. They needed an environment
that would allow them to accelerate the development and improve the performance of their big data algorithms, which help drive real time decision-making that delivers the best content to their global audience. Tapjoy engineers opted for a cloud-based model to run their big data platform instead of bare metal, prioritizing agility and the ability to scale over
bare metal performance.
Initially they deployed at AWS, but as the platform grew and their AWS costs increased, Tapjoy began to look for ways to better manage their growing public-cloud spend while increasing efficiency. They needed to do this without compromising the cloud experience they were giving their developers.
