Infrastructure efficiency and effectiveness directly support profit and growth as competition increases in the cloud and managed service provider (xSP) market. Savvy service providers understand that storage choices have a profound impact on not only their profit and growth, but also on their customer experience and retention. They also know that storage challenges in all those areas increase exponentially with scale. Infinidat storage platforms allow service providers to build and scale differentiated, profitable solutions without worrying about storage. Infinidat technology enables unprecedented efficiency, performance, and resiliency, while flexible business models make it easy for service providers to operationalize those platform advantages—including unique co-branding and promotional opportunities as part of the Powered by Infinidat program. Cloud providers worldwide trust their businesses to Infinidat storage. This paper explores a path for service providers to unlock greater sc
Today’s data centers are expected to deploy, manage, and report on different tiers of business applications, databases, virtual workloads, home
directories, and file sharing simultaneously. They also need to co-locate multiple systems while sharing power and energy. This is true for large as
well as small environments. The trend in modern IT is to consolidate as much as possible to minimize cost and maximize efficiency of data
centers and branch offices. HPE 3PAR StoreServ is highly efficient, flash-optimized storage engineered for the true convergence of block, file,
and object access to help consolidate diverse workloads efficiently. HPE 3PAR OS and converged controllers incorporate multiprotocol support
into the heart of the system architecture
IT Transformation is a concept that resonates with companies even more now than it did 12 months ago. Although not synonymous with digital transformation, the two concepts are fundamentally linked together, as effective digital transformation cannot happen without IT Transformation.
A company that transforms its IT infrastructure no longer has to rely on rigid, manual, siloed, legacy technologies. It sees a boost in IT operational speed, efficiency, scale, and cost effectiveness—tasks are automated, processes streamlined, and resources are freed up. Those IT-level improvements fuel a larger-scale digital transformation, allowing the company to thrive in today’s digital economy. It is able to out-innovate, out-think, and out-pace its competitors—ultimately becoming the disruptor, not the disrupted.

It’s not really about Windows Server 2003. It’s about moving forward – HP Technology services experts can help you chart the proper course.
Shortcuts will take longer and cost more than doing it right at the start. If you’re considering migration shortcuts, think again – HP Transformation Experience Workshop for Windows Server 2003 Migration can speed the process.
Do you have your arms around your Windows Server 2003 migration?
Sure, your team has probably headed up countless maintenance initiatives in the past - upgrades, refreshes, migrations. But if you make the mistake of thinking your Windows Server 2003 migration is more of the same, you will lose on two fronts. First, you will underestimate the complexity of the effort, thus increasing the chance of failure by overrunning timeline and budget. More importantly, you will miss the opportunity to bring value to your business. This paper introduces five considerations that will change your perspective on the Windows Server migration initiative - and spur technical, finance and line of business employees to jump on board.
This assessment is composed of a core set of comparative questions, and the option to be assessed in any of three key areas: computing economics, service delivery and business performance.
After a half-decade of cost cutting and shrinking IT budgets, the compute infrastructure that powers the enterprise now is typically inefficient, slow and not optimized for business outcomes.
It is better suited to the economic realities of 2010 rather than the rigors of the application workloads, delivery models & business expectations of today driven by cloud, mobility, security and big data megatrends. As a result, there is a significant gap between what businesses expect from technology and what IT can deliver.
An IDG Connect survey of 300 enterprise organization decision makers involved in hardware investment decisions reveals the challenges and opportunities that lay between the old style of IT characterized by cost-cutting and infrastructure silos, with the new style of IT driven by the technology trends of Mobility, Cloud and Big Data. These trends have created a significant increase in business expectations that will press IT organizations to rethink their economics, service delivery and business performance. This paper highlights voice-of-the-IT-buyer research results for insight on the challenges and opportunities for IT organizations to drive innovation, transformation and improved delivery against business expectations.

Delivering high-quality services with greater speed and efficiency is one of the greatest pressures facing your information technology (IT) infrastructure. The rise of computing in the cloud, expansive mobility options, and increasing pressure to boost application performance have added even further complexity - leading to inefficiencies that can limit your opportunity for growth and success. Traditional, siloed IT infrastructures are often too labor intensive, inefficient, and slow to overcome these challenges. Organizations need a converged, cloud-ready, software defined infrastructure to help them meet the evolving demands of their business.
Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, a nationally recognized fully integrated academic medical center and health system, is dedicated to improving patient care and advancing medical research. However, its aging legacy IT infrastructure had to be modernized in order to meet the requirements of the business.
Wake Forest Health turned to market-leading EMC Converged Infrastructure from VCE to simplify IT operations and drive business efficiency. In addition to multiple VCE Vblock® systems, the Vblock 540 with EMC XtremIO all-flash storage enabled significant improvements in application infrastructure performance and agility. After deploying the Vblock 540, Wake Forest experienced an overall 30 percent performance improvement to end
users and decreased the time needed for storage provisioning from 24 hours to less than an hour.

From students to executives, finding solutions to improve efficiency, productivity, and communication has become vital.
These end users are trying to excel in their work, and while they don't mean to cause harm, in most organizations this desire leads to the use of applications, services, and data storage and sharing beyond IT's boundaries. This practice, known as “shadow IT,” walks a line that information security officers are uncomfortable with, and it's having an obvious impact on technical support teams. The good news is, there are opportunities for all support organizations, regardless of their stance on shadow IT.
