With the maturing of the all-flash array (AFA) market, the established market leaders in this space are turning their attention to other ways to differentiate themselves from their competition besides just product functionality. Consciously designing and driving a better customer experience (CX) is a strategy being pursued by many of these vendors.This white paper defines cloud-based predictive analytics and discusses evolving storage requirements that are driving their use and takes a look at how these platforms are being used to drive incremental value for public sector organizations in the areas of performance, availability, management, recovery, and information technology (IT) infrastructure planning.
HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage provides a single product family across midrange, high-end, and all flash arrays designed to meet the demands of ITaaS. It is the only primary storage platform you need to respond to change with agility and efficiency.
Enterprises are looking to innovations like big data, cloud-based services and mobile apps to improve decision making and accelerate business results. But legacy IT implementations—independent compute, storage and networking platforms, veneered with a hypervisor— often can’t deliver on the increased agility, scalability and price performance demands of this new era of IT.

Think of a wildfire that quickly spreads as it increases in speed and power. That is what is happening today as data growth increases the volume and management complexity of storage, backup and recovery. Now think of trying to stop that fire with a garden hose. Your traditional backup and recovery process is equally under-equipped to manage and facilitate operations that need more speed, efficiency, scalability and reliability to handle today’s 24/7, always-on environment. Here we examine the benefits of moving from a solution comprised of multiple point products to a holistic data protection platform designed to serve today’s enterprise.
Learn why IDC recommends that organizations consider only vendors that offer both NVMe and SCSI-based enterprise storage platforms. Find out how to choose the platform that best meets your workload requirements.
HPE Nimble Storage has broken away from convention and transformed how storage is managed and supported with the
HPE InfoSight predictive analytics platform. HPE engaged ESG to conduct a quantitative survey of the HPE Nimble Storage
installed base, as well as non-HPE Nimble Storage customers, to better assess how HPE InfoSight positively impacts
customer environments. Both HPE InfoSight telemetry data and ESG’s quantitative survey data show that the benefit
delivered to HPE Nimble Storage customers is significant, driving:
• 79% lower IT operational expenses.
• 73% fewer trouble tickets in the environment, which are resolved faster.
• 85% less time spent resolving storage-related trouble tickets.
• 69% faster time to resolution for events that necessitate level 3 support.
• The ability to manage and troubleshoot the entire infrastructure environment from a single, intelligent platform.

In a market where compute and storage resources can be bought on demand with a credit card, vendors
of on-premises hardware are seeking to tip the scales in their favor with ‘cloud-like’ pricing models that
eliminate the need to commit capital to new platforms. At Dell EMC World in May, Dell Financial Services
(DFS) rolled out Cloud Flex for HCI (hyperconverged infrastructure), part of the company’s push to evangelize
the start-small-and-scale-up virtues of HCI technology.
Cloud Flex lets customers acquire equipment on an all-opex basis, with no up-front product cost, steady
monthly payments that reduce by up to 30% annually, and the ability to turn in equipment any time after
12 months without penalty. It’s part of a series of moves by Dell EMC meant to ease the financial risk of
sticking with on-premises infrastructure in a cloud-enabled world
In order for enterprises and IT organizations to truly innovate and offer differentiated value to customers, you need an IT infrastructure based on the latest advancements in computing, networking, and storage.
Considering an investment in flash storage or converged infrastructure? Read this brochure to learn more about the Vblock® System 540, the industry’s first all-flash Converged Infrastructure System for high-performance mixed workloads and emerging 3rd platform applications—built on best of breed technology components including EMC XtremIO all-flash storage.
