Parallels Partners with HPE Technology, Lowering TCO

With heightened security concerns and ongoing efforts to lower costs, this current age of mobility urges businesses to re-envision their IT infrastructures. Since legacy technologies pose potentially costly constraints on staff productivity and budgets, it can be said that they cannot efficiently meet today’s business expectations.   

The Need for a Simple and Agile Infrastructure

A case example demonstrates a large state university system that looked to provide students with a better end-user experience by employing a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policy. Previously, the school conducted a week-long “boot camp” each semester for students to install applications such as Microsoft Office and Adobe Acrobat on their devices. This was vital since software licenses rescinded over summer and winter breaks. The university needed to run an application that could reach over 20,000 students in one or two days each semester to provide them with the tools that they needed for classwork.  

 

HPE SimpliVity’s Hyperconverged Platform

Designed to do exactly that, the Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) SimpliVity hyperconverged platform consolidates hardware, software, and advanced data services into a simple, flexible, cost-effective building block. Extending this efficiency to your application environment is also a critical part of the equation. With HPE’s net revenue of $28.87 billion USD in 2017 (an increase from 2016’s $18.87 billion), the company has spent around $1.49 billion on research and development alone over the 2017 period. Currently owning a 13.8% share in the global server market, HPE shows boundless potential for collaboration. HPE SimpliVity alone offers dramatic total-cost-of ownership (TCO) savings of up to 60% compared to traditional infrastructure.
