The modern workplace is anywhere
Complex work. Specialised teams all over the place. Theyíre in offices, homes, hotels, cars and airports. It could hardly be any more different to the days when people sat in neat rows of desks. Thatís the modern reality of business lifeóitís happening everywhere at once.
Not only that, itís happening on all kinds of devices, from desktop to mobile. And every generation of worker expects to have its workstyle accommodated.
Today, co- workers mingle flexibly in pairs and groups, and those teams thrive on exchanging creative energy. They meet up in spaces designed specifically to encourage the cross-pollination of ideas. Their disruptive new concepts are where the next big growth opportunities are. The modern workplace is one where ongoing innovation is valued above all else. And flexibility extends well beyond four walls.
Think about the way you work today and how it has evolved. Chances are itís no longer 9 Ďtil 5.

The all-encompassing data center is a thing of the past. Modern data environments are distributed and include remote and branch offices, mobile devices, and
the Internet of Things (IoT) as well as cloud solutions such as infrastructure as a service (IaaS), platform as a service (PaaS), and software as a service (SaaS).
Thereís more critical data to back up than ever before. Plus, data silos and fragmented management mean poor visibility, which can make it difficult to comply
with regional data residency and security rules as well as service-level agreements (SLAs).
On-premises data protection has not kept pace. According to a survey by Fujitsu, 45% of IT managers said they had lost data or productivity related to data
protection inefficiency within the last year.1
Often, this is because on-premises backups are cumbersome and do not always happen on time.
Todayís data centers are expected to deploy, manage, and report on different tiers of business applications, databases, virtual workloads, home
directories, and file sharing simultaneously. They also need to co-locate multiple systems while sharing power and energy. This is true for large as
well as small environments. The trend in modern IT is to consolidate as much as possible to minimize cost and maximize efficiency of data
centers and branch offices. HPE 3PAR StoreServ is highly efficient, flash-optimized storage engineered for the true convergence of block, file,
and object access to help consolidate diverse workloads efficiently. HPE 3PAR OS and converged controllers incorporate multiprotocol support
into the heart of the system architecture
Dramatic changes are underway in offices around the world, with Macs rapidly gaining market share in modern enterprises. Read this white paper to discover the industry-wide transitions to Macs, and tips to smooth your integration of Apple devices.
Traditional WAN technologies are a mismatch for modern branch networks.
Enterprises need branch offices to be up and running quickly. Branch WAN costs are increasing dramatically. So is WAN traffic. IT departments are losing visibility and control. This is not sustainable. There has to be a new way!
