Converged Infrastructure

Stay current on new innovations that are strengthening the HP Converged Infrastructure portfolio

HP is conducting its annual Global Partner Conference (GPC) in Las Vegas this week. These types of big events always come with important NEWS and INFORMATION that will help our customers advance their IT agenda. As a result, I think it’s timely to reinforce TWO critical success factors every business should remember when making technology solution decisions on their journey to a Converged Infrastructure and the cloud:


     #1: While technology drives the business, one size does not fit all.

            It’s a hybrid world requiring a full portfolio of open, standards-based offerings.

     #2: To achieve the best ROI requires technology innovation across all
            areas that matter, experience, and the expertise to bring it all together.


With infrastructure convergence in full motion, cloud solutions proving their value, and the software-defined data center movement right around the corner, I believe these two core themes are particularly important to remember.


So as you evaluate your technology decisions, I invite you to ...


... Read about some of the new innovations announced at GPC that are extending our
     converged infrastructure leadership. Things like:

  • The new HP BladeSystem c7000 Platinum enclosure that dramatically improves performance, efficiency
          and availability of resources in virtualized and cloud environments.
  • How HP is pioneering software-defined storage.
  • And how HP is delivering the industry’s only complete BYOD networking solution.


... Follow the GPC BUZZ to hear about the latest things we’re doing with our valued partners in order
     to bring you the absolute best joint solutions


... Learn more about how and why HP Converged Infrastructure solutions are designed for a modern,
     hybrid IT environment


When HP first pioneered the converged infrastructure approach, the essence of its mission back then, as it is now, has not changed: Help our customer’s use technology as a competitive advantage that can drive sustained growth. In other words, make technology matter.


To achieve this, it starts by having a data center that is simpler, more flexible, more efficient and less expensive to operate. This is what HP Converged Infrastructure solutions are designed to do – either through leading and modern technologies designed for convergence across servers, storage, networking, security, power, cooling, and management, or through HP Converged Systems that integrate hardware, software and services into turnkey solutions. Remember, it takes a portfolio, not a few niche solutions that lock you in - and innovation out.


As always, thanks for your time,



P.S. Don’t forget, HP Discover is just around the corner – June 11-13 in Las Vegas. It’s never too early to start planning.
