HP ConvergedSystem:Time-saving solutions for general-purpose and application-specific workloads

By Guest blogger Carolyn Boyle, HP Converged Systems


Too many IT departments continue to find themselves reacting to the demands of the business, rather than innovating and leading the business. Enter HP ConvergedSystem, a portfolio of purpose-built, workload-optimized systems that help free you from IT complexity so you can accelerate time-to-value and focus on business opportunities that new applications present.


Comprised of servers, storage, networking, software and services, HP ConvergedSystem products are like infrastructure building blocks, self-contained and pre-integrated, making them easy to buy, deploy and manage. They can be utilized for general-purpose, day-to-day workloads like email but can also be customized for specific applications. When purpose built for a specific application, the benefits of HP ConvergedSystem are even more compelling.


Take the challenge of Big Data, for example. Legacy Big Data platforms have limited scalability, while buying new, tier-one Big Data appliances is prohibitively expensive. Additionally, most of today’s Big Data solutions come with complex business intelligence software that requires specialized training. This has led to notoriously low adoption rates for such Big Data solutions among business users.


A purpose-built HP ConvergedSystem solves these challenges.
