HP ConvergedSystem: building blocks for speed, value and innovation

Do these sound familiar?

 

“I don’t have time to build new apps, I’m too busy managing old apps.”

“I need standard and simple, not custom and complicated.”

“We want to get out of the hardware integration business.”

 

It wouldn’t surprise me if you were nodding “yes.” These are frustrations we hear from customers all the time. They’re stuck, perhaps like you, managing costly and complex infrastructure, which leaves little time to innovate and create value.

 

These customer quotes speak to the challenges that continue to plague many data centers and IT organizations, despite the efficiencies of virtualization and automation. The quotes are the result of legacy IT models and complex infrastructure architectures that require custom integration, specialized skills to manage, and slow manual processes to build, provision and de-provision.

 

As long as you’re stuck in this world of complexity, customization and manual processes, you’ll never be able to shift IT from maintaining technology, to innovating for the business.

 

HP ConvergedSystem products solve this problem by offering building blocks comprised of servers, storage, networking, software and services. These self-contained and pre-integrated systems are easy to buy, deploy and manage. So they give you time for more high-value projects.

 

Here’s why choosing an HP ConvergedSystem is better than buying and building hardware and software systems from multiple vendors.

 

HP ConvergedSystem:

  • Arrive pre-configured & sized – they’re rigorously tested and ready to scale
  • Reduce risk – you can order and deploy a converged system in as few as 20 days
  • Are easy to manage and grow – with integrated “single pane of glass” management, pre-tested patches and firmware updates

 

ConvergedSystem Showcase explores the benefits of converged systems

HP understands the value of converged systems, which is why we developed an informational content hub dedicated to these important building blocks. The ConvergedSystem Showcase will launch on August 19 from 1:00 – 3:00 pm, EST. Attend the launch and chat live with HP experts who will be online to answer any converged systems questions you may have.

 

The Showcase will feature multimedia presentations and content on a range of HP ConvergedSystem topics, including:

  • How a ConvergedSystem reduces risk and saves you money
  • In-depth technical discussions on the latest ConvergedSystem innovations
  • Best practices for sizing virtual machines for HP ConvergedSystem
  • How HP ConvergedSystem provides the fastest path to value for application deployments like SAP HANA and Microsoft Analytics Platform

Register for free for the ConvergedSystem Showcase and find how you can replace complexity, customization and cost, with innovation, speed and value.
