Today, data volumes are growing exponentially and organizations of every size are struggling to manage what has become a very expensive and complex problem. It causes real issues such as:
• Overprovisioning their backup infrastructure to anticipate rapid future growth.
• Legacy systems can’t cope and backups take too long or are incomplete.
• Companies miss recovery point objectives and recovery time targets.
• Backups overload infrastructure and network bandwidth.
• Not embracing new technologies, such as cloud backup, because there is too much data to transfer over wide area networks.
What’s needed today is storage that’s flexible enough to be used for both legacy IT and virtual systems environments and repurposed as new needs arise. Storage must be quickly expandable and must enable data and applications to be easily and securely migrated, with workloads automatically rebalanced. Applications need to be online 24 x 7, so high availability is paramount. Management of the entire storage pool, as well as coordination with virtualized servers and networking, must be streamlined and simplified. This Tech Dossier reveals how HP Converged Storage can meet your organizations storage requirements.

Data masking has long been a key component of enterprise data security strategies. However, legacy masking tools could not deliver secure data, undermining their impact. Explore how data as a service can deliver on the promise of masking, while increasing organizational flexibility and agility.
As organizations prioritize digital transformation initiatives, many are finding that legacy
networks are holding them back. To support new business models, cloud adoption, and an
explosion in connected devices, modern networks must support interoperability across data
centers, multiple clouds, branch locations, and edge devices. Applications now run at every
point on this spectrum, and they are critical to businesses’ ability to win in hypercompetitive marketplaces. Yet, even as business success has become more dependent on
this new architecture, and the amount of data flowing across connections has increased,
many organizations still lack a unified approach to management, automation, and security
Rather than simply enhancing and supporting traditional methods, the use of digital technologies should enable brand new types of innovation and creativity. However, most of us have grown up with rigid, legacy technology-based business systems—process-oriented and mostly built around predictable, repeatable steps. If this sounds familiar, your business model may now be under threat from “digital Darwinism”—a tipping point caused by digital technologies and downstream market effects. Or perhaps nimbler, lower cost-base competitors are about to overtake you with a more innovative approach, better use of data or smarter use of technology. In this climate, “business as usual” is certainly no longer good enough.
Modern app delivery for an adaptive, optimized network
To succeed in today’s cloud-first world, you need to manage and deploy modern applications in parallel with legacy applications. But traditional application delivery controller (ADC) solutions can’t bridge the gap between these two environments. See and hear how you can streamline the delivery of apps, desktops and data into a unified, fully integrated digital workspace experience. Download this brief to find out how you can:
• Get one platform for traditional and modern application delivery
• Support hybrid and multi-cloud environments
• Convert and migrate legacy apps to microservices application architectures
The bank wanted to modernize its global data center core and edge networks to move to the next stage of its private cloud journey. The bank has long recognized the advantages of server virtualization, and it wanted to move more aggressively to a software-defined data center. The bank was virtualizing all services, including compute, storage, and network, to gain greater business flexibility and deliver cost savings. But first, it needed an elastic, flexible, and production ready network to connect its data centers.
The bank wanted a dynamically scalable network to interconnect its data centers in Europe, Asia, and North America, so that it could move toward a fully automated, self provisioned cloud. The global network needed to deliver performance at scale for the company’s highly virtualized resources, while also supporting integration of legacy assets into its software-defined data centers.
The dramatic growth of hybrid cloud deployments is creating new challenges for security professionals that can no longer be addressed with legacy technologies, policies and processes. As applications and data move fluidly between multiple clouds private, public and hybrid—organizations must take a unified approach to security that incorporates a range of products working hand in glove to reduce risk and protect the business.
Advanced persistent threats (APTs) are stealthier and more spiteful than ever. Sophisticated techniques are used to quietly breach organizations and deploy customized malware, which potentially remains undetected for months. Such attacks are caused by cybercriminals who target individual users with highly evasive tools. Legacy security approaches are bypassed to steal sensitive data from credit card details to intellectual property or government secrets. Traditional cybersecurity solutions, such as email spam filters, anti-virus software or firewalls are ineffective against advanced persistent threats. APTs can bypass such solutions and gain hold within a network to make organizations vulnerable to data breaches.
Modernise Your Enterprise Management
Legacy Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solutions are no longer capable of keeping up with today’s fast-moving world – Enterprise Management is the new business reality.
Whether you’re a manufacturer, distributor, service provider or mid-market enterprise, we’ll reveal to you a world beyond ERP.
• Download our new ‘Move Beyond ERP’ eBook to understand the business challenges you have, and how to meet them.
• Understand why businesses are outgrowing traditional ERP and are burdened by its inefficiencies.
• Look at the benefits of Enterprise Management, which provides real-time data intelligence, improved forecasting, and accelerated business processes.
Like other IT leaders, you know you have to modernize your IT infrastructure to become more productive, efficient, agile and competitive. So what's holding you back? Many organizations are still devoting anywhere from 60% to 80% of their time, energy, human resources and budget to supporting legacy systems rather than develop transformative solutions.
Our new eBook, Your 3-step roadmap to IT modernization, will help you align your approach to IT with the way your business works today — and the way you will work in the digital age:
• Increased mobility, multiple device formats and distributed workgroups
• Greater collaboration with outside organizations, including customers, suppliers and partners
• Essential enterprise risk management features such as compliance, legal, security and data governance
Here you'll learn the three stages of IT modernization — from realigning your infrastructure to updating business processes — so you take the right steps.
As legacy ERP data structures and technology begin winding down, they are making
way for a whole new generation of technology that brings exponential performance
and dramatically new problem-solving capabilities.
