The power of Converged Infrastructure in action!

At HP we believe in the power of testimonials. We know that what customers say about our solutions carries a lot of weight. That’s why I’m excited to share with you a new video in which Centric discusses the benefits realized by migrating to a converged infrastructure.

Ride the Next Wave of Broadcast Industry Innovations

The broadcast industry is rapidly evolving. Legacy tape-based systems and proprietary applications are giving way to software-based solutions that run on industry-standard platforms. The transition from analog to HD digital and the adoption of end-to-end IP-based workflows are fueling a new wave of business growth for solution providers who cater to the broadcast and media industries.


Are you ready to ride the IP wave?

IT Unchained! 3PAR’s StoreServ Management Console and HP OneView

Some IT management platforms have the misfortune of being bolted together from disparate parts like Frankenstein’s monster. HP flipped the script and invested in a completely new, next generation of converged management for the New Style of IT.

HP ConvergedSystem 700: The agility your business needs to transition you to the New Style of IT

Paul Miller, VP Marketing, HP Converged Systems, spent some time with TheCube at HP Discover Barcelona last week to dive in to the latest from HP Converged Systems and what they are doing to meet customers’ needs.


While businesses want a system that is simple to stand up and is easy to manage, says Miller, they also need flexibility. “Our customers didn’t want a completely fixed system, it doesn’t meet all their workloads…so what we had to design was a system that has a fast time to delivery, integrated and lifecycle management, but also has the flexibility to meet all of their business requirements.”


The new HP ConvergedSystem 700 fits the bill. It gives your business the agility it needs to develop and innovate new applications, products and services by making your IT fast, simple and efficient. But it also is flexible enough to work with the systems you may already have. And by shifting your budget to innovation, such as developing new services, and away from maintenance, your business can fully realize the value HP Converged Systems provides.


And it doesn’t stop there. Because HP Converged Systems are powered by HP OneView (the management platform that John Furrier of TheCube calls “the hidden gem of Discover Barcelona”), staying on top of your IT is easier than ever. The latest version of HP OneView now comes with HP Operations Analytics, a tool that can not only find and solve problems in seconds, but can prevent future issues, which again allows your business more time to spend innovating and less time managing your IT.


“That is what true business agility is,” explains Miller. “When you can actually give your IT a sense of how its applications and infrastructure are going to perform in the future.”


Such agility is what moves your business forward. John Furrier sums it up best by saying, “[HP Converged Systems] have a seat on the bus, and the destination is the New Style of IT.”
