Converged Infrastructure

Do you finalize your IT plans based on promises—or on reality? Can Lenovo deliver?

I’ve often believed the most effective managers are ones with the ability to separate truth from fiction—and are able to act accordingly. Being able to divine the truth becomes especially critical when you’re dealing with the care and feeding of a critical (and expense) corporate asset—the datacenter. Am I making the right selection? Are the solutions a seamless fit? Will the vendor resources be available when I need them?

Attend a webinar that will give a BIG push to your Big Data initiative

Chris Daly is the Chief Outbound Engineer in the Big Data Systems Engineering organization at HP. Having been at HP in one form or another for the past 17 years, he has spent the last several years focused on Big Data solutions for customers. In his current role, he is responsible for interfacing with field resources and customers for solutions around Hadoop.


When the HP customers I talk to realize what they could do with Big Data, every one of them gets excited about the possibilities. Imagine being able to derive new business insights from a platform that stores, manages and processes data at scale to drive growth, sales, revenue, and competitiveness. Yet many of these same customers hesitate to launch a Big Data initiative, because they also realize that leading Big Data solutions like Apache Hadoop can be complex to deploy, configure, manage and monitor.

Business as usual may no longer be a reality. Can Lenovo keep pace with IBM’s product support?

Do you as a business customer really want to place your server investment into the hands of a company that (for lack of a more delicate phrase), “doesn’t exactly have a superior track record of customer service?”

Open Software-Defined Infrastructure Management and HP OneView

Guest blogger Ken Spear is a Converged Systems marketing manager 


If you've heard about HP OneView - and who hasn't with over 25,000 licenses sold - then you'll want to read on and read the white paper that describes the benefits of software-defined infrastructure management with HP OneView.

Would you have your mission critical servers serviced by a company specializing in ThinkPads?

Given a choice would you prefer securing solutions from a service provider with a proven track record or one that has no record? That by the way isn’t a trick question—it’s one that deserves serious consideration with an answer that can impact the feasibility of your datacenter operations.
