"This research by Nimble Storage, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company, outlines the top five causes of application delays. The report analyzes more than 12,000 anonymized cases of downtime and slow performance. Read this report and find out:
-Top 5 causes of downtime and poor performance across the infrastructure stack
-How machine learning and predictive analytics can prevent issues
-Steps you can take to boost performance and availability
Applications are the engines that drive today’s digital businesses. When the infrastructure that powers those applications is
difficult to administer, or fails, businesses and their IT organizations are severely impacted. Traditionally, IT assumed much
of the responsibility to ensure availability and performance. In the digital era, however, the industry needs to evolve and
reset the requirements on vendors.
HPE Nimble Storage has broken away from convention and transformed how storage is managed and supported with the
HPE InfoSight predictive analytics platform. HPE engaged ESG to conduct a quantitative survey of the HPE Nimble Storage
installed base, as well as non-HPE Nimble Storage customers, to better assess how HPE InfoSight positively impacts
customer environments. Both HPE InfoSight telemetry data and ESG’s quantitative survey data show that the benefit
delivered to HPE Nimble Storage customers is significant, driving:
• 79% lower IT operational expenses.
• 73% fewer trouble ti

Most companies would love to move enterprise applications
to the public cloud and cut the costs, complexities,
and limitations of current infrastructure.
Major public cloud providers, such as Amazon Web Services (AWS),
Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud have done well in enabling
web, mobile, and content applications in the cloud. These are
cloud-native applications designed to use cloud “object” storage,
and object storage is very popular for use cases such as backup
and disaster recovery. However, enterprise applications typically
require “block” storage. Although native cloud block storage
exists, it has several shortcomings, particularly around reliability,
durability, and lack of data mobility. So, enterprise applications
have largely stayed on-premises or in private clouds.
Now there’s an innovative new way to move enterprise applications
to the public cloud while actually reducing risks and tradeoffs.
It’s called multicloud storage, and it’s an insanely simple,
reliable, secure w
Hyperconvergence is making inroads in enterprises, as major system vendors acquire startups or bundle servers with HC software offerings. I&O leaders should focus on the capabilities and limitations of HCI software, which is offered by a wide range of server platform vendors via OEM partnerships.
IDC shares their thoughts on what business need to do in order to enable digital transformation. The research is based on interviews of IT ops and LOB staff at F1000 companies who have a Hybrid IT strategy."
"This 56 page guide explores the foundational components of Hybrid IT, strategies to help CIOs partner with the business, and “key plays” that, if executed successfully, enable successful and sustainable digital transformation.
Learn how transitioning to a Hybrid IT model can help you make the most of limited resources and free your team to spend less time keeping the lights on, and more time contributing to revenue growth as active participants in business innovation. "
"12-page white paper on workload placement:
In this Frost & Sullivan report, they look at how the hybrid environment calls for a new way of thinking about “application performance.” They show how application performance is impacted by choice of deployment model (on premises and in the public cloud). They look at workloads whose performance requirements make them candidates for on-premises deployment, and identify the link between “optimal performance” and achievement of business goals.
Finally, they offer suggestions for getting started with your workload assessment process. "
"MVP ASSET IN STORAGE CAMPAIGN
• HPE enhanced the perception of SimpliVity's supportability and stability by leveraging the global go-to-market reach and capabilities of HPE and its channel partners.
• SimpliVity delivers robust data services, such as in-line global compression and deduplication combined with an integrated backup solution and rapid disaster recovery capabilities for operational simplicity and cost reduction.
• The HPE ProLiant DL380 installed base and global market acceptance make SimpliVity one of the top choices as an HCI platform for existing HPE customers."
It’s easy to assume that running IT apps on-premises is not cost competitive with cloud-based services. Evaluator Group tests the validity of that assumption with a TCO model analyzing a hyperconverged solution from HPE and a comparable AWS solution.
Forrester study reveals how a typical HPE SimpliVity customer reduces total cost of ownership by 69% by consolidating infrastructure, reducing CAPEX and OPEX, and simplifying system administration. The cost savings enable a 183% investment return with a short 7.2 month payback.
How hyperconverged infrastructure can reduce costs and help align enterprise IT with business needs. Includes chapters on hyperconvergence and cloud, datacenter consolidation, ROBO deployment, test and development environments, and disaster recovery.
Discusses trends that are leading modern IT to hyperconverged infrastructure, and the technical and business benefits that come from implementing a data center based on hyperconverged solutions such as HPE SimpliVity. "
IDC whitepaper highlights market trends that have driven a dramatic increase in real world hyperconverged infrastructure deployments. Indepth customer interviews reveal considerable operational efficiency gains with HPE SimpliVity infrastructure.
