As IT demands mount, IT organizations simply no longer have the luxury of spending resources to verify every vendor promise. Systems just need to work, while delivering a future free from costly data migrations. As a response, IT vendors have begun to offer guarantees in performance, guarantees in data reduction rates, guarantees in data deduplication, or free upgrades. These programs, however, are often limited to a single storage or data protection product offering, typically with all-flash technology. Dell EMC solutions, powered by Intel® Xeon® processor goes one step further with a program that delivers a future-proof infrastructure promise that extends to its larger storage, hyperconverged, and data protection portfolio and provides support across both generational and architectural transitions.
Microsoft® will end support for Windows® Server 2003/R2 on July 14, 2015. This can have a dramatic impact on your business, because without any more updates or patches from Microsoft, your organization’s infrastructure will be less stable and secure.
HP can help you to make a smooth migration to Microsoft Windows Server 2012 and to private cloud solutions built on HP Converged Infrastructure and Microsoft System Center, HP has created a Microsoft Virtualization and Cloud Center of Excellence.

State agency and higher education CIOs are under intense pressure to modernize their legacy IT systems. Whether that requires moving from one infrastructure to another, or moving to or from the cloud, the chief challenge remains: How to migrate data and applications without disrupting critical operations, ensure improved performance and avoid pricing and other traps that often accompany virtualizing in the cloud.
Learn what’s made the difference in overcoming the impediments to workload migrations from IT leaders who’ve lived through big data and application moves. Topics include:
Preparing workloads for cloud on-boarding – and off-boarding
Tools for simplifying the consolidation and migration of apps and supporting services
Forecasting workloads, and planning for associated testing, training, and other costs
Health systems moving to integrated care business models are crying out for more active repositories to replace image archives as they move toward collaborative models of care. Yet traditional storage vendors continue to rely on three-year buying models and costly forklift migrations – and performance still does not meet clinician’s requirements. Pure Storage offers an alternative: a renewable, upgradable, scale-out, highperformance storage environment for images at a low TCO that ensures the latest technology and marketleading support and maintenance for 10+ years.
IT organizations are on the brink of a new wave of desktop transformation, with Windows 7 operating system (OS) migrations a critical stop on the journey. These OS migrations are extremely complex and pose real risks in terms of end user downtime, business interruptions, and increased costs. IT needs to ensure migration projects go quickly and smoothly, and that the resulting user environment becomes easier to access and manage.
The report highlights the key considerations associated with simplifying application deployments through application virtualization and automating desktop provisioning and management through desktop virtualization.
