HP Introduces Innovations Built for the Data Center of the Future

New IT con짯ver짯ged sys짯tems, con짯ver짯ged sto짯rage acce짯le짯ra짯te time to mar짯ket, redu짯ce cost, sim짯pli짯fy buil짯ding data cen짯ters for New Style of IT

BARCELONA, Spain HP today announ짯ced new HP Con짯ver짯ged짯Sys짯tem and HP Con짯ver짯ged Sto짯rage offe짯rings that give enter짯pri짯ses the speed, agi짯li짯ty and lower eco짯no짯mics to build the next-gene짯ra짯ti짯on data cen짯ters that will power tomorrow셲 suc짯cessful organizations.

Data cen짯ters are rea짯ching an unsus짯tainable point봧n the next five years, the avera짯ge enter짯pri짯se will see data capa짯ci짯ties grow more than 800 per짯cent, accor짯ding to Gart짯ner.(1) Enter짯pri짯ses need to be able to mana짯ge this expo짯nen짯ti짯al growth in data while intro짯du짯cing new appli짯ca짯ti짯ons, such as big data and ana짯ly짯tics, using deli짯very models such as vir짯tua짯li짯zed infra짯struc짯tu짯re and the cloud. Yet, enter짯pri짯se inno짯va짯ti짯on is cons짯trai짯ned by the com짯ple짯xi짯ties of out짯da짯ted IT. Orga짯niza짯ti짯ons must opti짯mi짯ze and moder짯ni짯ze to deli짯ver a New Style of IT that acce짯le짯ra짯tes reve짯nue gene짯ra짯ti짯on, dri짯ves inno짯va짯ti짯on and redu짯ces busi짯ness risk, while at the same time redu짯cing over짯all costs.

HP under짯stands what셲 nee짯ded in the data cen짯ter of the future, and is eli짯mi짯na짯ting IT com짯ple짯xi짯ty through its inno짯va짯tions in the new HP Con짯ver짯ged짯Sys짯tem portfolio봞 fami짯ly of inte짯gra짯ted IT sys짯tems pur짯po짯se-built for key workloads such as vir짯tua짯liza짯ti짯on, big data and hos짯ted desk짯tops. The new HP Con짯ver짯ged짯Sys짯tem pro짯ducts deli짯ver a total sys짯tems expe짯ri짯ence that dra짯ma짯ti짯cal짯ly sim짯pli짯fies IT, enab짯ling cli짯ents to go from order to ope짯ra짯ti짯ons in as few as 20 days. With quick deploy짯ment, intui짯ti짯ve manage짯ment and sys짯tem-level sup짯port, IT orga짯niza짯ti짯ons can shift their focus from sys짯tems inte짯gra짯ti짯on to deli짯ve짯ring the appli짯ca짯ti짯ons that power their business.

HP also is intro짯du짯cing new solu짯ti짯ons that pro짯vi짯de the simp짯lest, fas짯test way to deli짯ver and mana짯ge data. The짯se include HP Con짯ver짯ged Sto짯rage inno짯va짯tions to res짯to짯re busi짯ness pro짯duc짯ti짯vi짯ty at record speed, signi짯fi짯cant짯ly redu짯ce the cost of flash-opti짯mi짯zed appli짯ca짯ti짯on per짯for짯mance to gene짯ra짯te fas짯ter busi짯ness returns, and sim짯pli짯fy appli짯ca짯ti짯on mobi짯li짯ty from public to pri짯va짯te clouds to deli짯ver secu짯re ser짯vice levels.

The next gene짯ra짯ti짯on of CIOs and CTOs will be at the cen짯ter of their organization셲 busi짯ness stra짯tegy and reli짯ed upon to dri짯ve growth, acce짯le짯ra짯te inno짯va짯ti짯on and mana짯ge risk, said Bill Vegh짯te, exe짯cu짯ti짯ve vice pre짯si짯dent and gene짯ral mana짯ger, Enter짯pri짯se Group, HPHP Con짯ver짯ged짯Sys짯tem and HP Con짯ver짯ged Sto짯rage offe짯rings enable our cus짯to짯mers to use tech짯no짯lo짯gy to deli짯ver busi짯ness out짯co짯mes that dri짯ve their suc짯cess, by crea짯ting an agi짯le pool of resour짯ces that can deploy quick짯ly, acce짯le짯ra짯te results and trans짯form an organization셲 most valuable asset봧ts data봧nto actionable com짯pe짯ti짯ti짯ve insight.
