How HP Helped a Gaming Industry Giant Stay AHEAD of their Game!

Having come from humble beginnings as a pinball machine manufacturer, Bally Technologies is now a leading name in technology innovation for the gaming industry. With high profile clients like Caesar’s Entertainment, Las Vegas Sands and Trump entertainment, to name a few, Bally is under constant pressure to “one-up” both the competition, and their own past successes.

When I start my car and put it into gear, I don’t think about the countless processes and technological marvels that allow me to drive.  I just get in my car and GO!  What if you had the same, easy experience managing your data center?  In other words, what if the tools were designed for the way you want to work, not how the infrastructure operates? 

IDC calls it: blades are server of choice in strategic initiatives

Last month, IDC issued a press release that confirms what end users have known for some time now: blades are becoming the dynamic platform for the data center of the future.  The survey found that the majority of IT organizations are using blades for virtualization and private cloud environments. 

 HP has one of the most comprehensive bladed portfolios in the market – BladeSystems designed for datacenter applications, mega memory for virtualization, two server in one enclosure blades for dense computing environments, workstation blades for client virtualization, Integrity blades for mission critical computing and just about any type of storage blades and data  storage for any size business.

The survey also found that more enterprise customers will do virtualization on blades than any other platform.

To help make all this work better together, HP offers management software tools to improve IT staff efficiency while reducing expenses and Virtual Connect to simplify networking.

And speaking of networking, what could be the largest networking offering ever amassed – products, services, solutions and support – is now all available from HP. 

More to come as HP Converged Infrastructure provides the blueprint for the data center of the future.
