HP has expanded its HP Converged-System portfolio to help clients accelerate business innovation with integrated IT systems purpose-built for the next generation of computing.
A New Style of IT is emerging, in which IT organizations must quickly deliver next-generation applications and web services to drive business growth and competitive differentiation. However, they are often constrained by the complexity of existing IT models. IT must transform from infrastructure craftsmen that dedicate resources to component selection, systems design, solution integration and support to business service experts focused on delivering services that create new business opportunities.
As organizations start embracing this New Style of IT, the market for converged systems is expected to grow more than three times faster than the growth of spend on traditional infrastructure.
HP Converged-System offerings deliver the industry’s first integrated IT systems engineered from the ground up for convergence, helping clients to reduce IT complexity and costs, while increasing performance for leading applications. They unify the servers, storage, networking, software and services clients need to power their IT infrastructure in systems that are easy to procure, manage and support. Building on HP’s leadership in Converged Infrastructure and decades of experience in systems design for major applications, HP Converged-System products are performance-optimized for key workloads like virtualization, hosted desktops and big data.
Delivering a total systems experience that dramatically simplifies IT, HP Converged-System offerings are operational in as few as 20 days of ordering, so IT can deploy applications faster and accelerate time to value. For example, IDC recently found that converged systems can cut time to market for new services in half, reduce downtime by 50-75 percent and reduce IT infrastructure cost by up to 50 percent.
“IT organizations today are undergoing a fundamental transformation from offering basic infrastructure support to serving as business partners responsible for driving growth,” said Stephen Bovis, vice president & general manager, Servers HP Asia Pacific and Japan. “HP’s goal is to help organizations accelerate innovation by freeing IT from the complexity of technology integration. Through quick deployment, intuitive management and system-level support, HP Converged-System products enable IT to shift their focus from infrastructure craftsmanship to delivering the applications that power their business.”
