10X Increase in Data Traffic Is Easily Handled With an Integrity Server Upgrade

Many companies have multiple operating groups, and usually that means they also have multiple infrastructures.  If you're wrestling with multiple infrastructures to keep your business units running, take a look at a system upgrade to the latest HP Integrity servers.  Upgrading solved a lot of issues for Hotelplan. So why not find out what it can do for you?

Maximize Your IT Budgets and Finance Your Server Upgrade with HP

Guest blog from Alan Bowen

When considering a mission-critical server upgrade to handle changes in your business, reduce cost of ownership and improve efficiency--keep in mind one of the more critical considerations will be how to finance the purchase of the new Integrity systems.    To help with this financial concern, Alan Bowen, HP Global Marketing and Business Development Leader for HP Financial Services, was interviewed and he shares insights on how HP Financial Services can help free up capital, retire legacy systems, and maximize your budget.



Server upgrade contributes to a significant improvement in price/performance

KPN has been running its MCCS on HP Integrity NonStop servers since the early 1990s. Reliability and performance have been flawless, which is why they continue to invest in Integrity NonStop over the years. So to prepare for the next wave of business, it was only natural that KPN evolved to the HP Integrity NonStop BladeSystem, a key component of the HP Mission-Critical Converged Infrastructure. This put KPN in the perfect position to take on whatever volume of data traffic the future held in store.

Does your next server upgrade need flexible financing?

How often do you consider making a new purchase---maybe a flashy sports car—and quickly discount the idea because of the purchase costs?   What if you could not only get the speed and performance, the cool new stereo with Bluetooth built in, but also buy it at an affordable cost?   Similar to the sports car example, many HP customers consider 3 key areas as they evaluate a server upgrade.

In the case study on Accarda, a leading supplier of integrated customer management solutions and loyalty card programs in Switzerland, the consideration of these four values brought Accarda to the conclusion that for its own continued success an HP Integrity server upgrade was essential.
