This paper sponsored by HP & Intel introduces a next-generation storage option for virtual and cloud data centers. Learn how to overcome the flexibility and scalability challenges of outdated storage solutions.
As more hardware, devices, apps, and tools are deployed to support growth, the infrastructure becomes increasingly difficult to integrate, manage and support. The concept of converged infrastructure was seen as the answer to this problem. However, when bringing together disparate components not deeply integrated or designed to work together, this "solution" sapped efficiency and added more complexity. Plus, there was no convenient public cloud option. Explore how Oracle Engineered Systems are designed to overcome the limitations of traditional converged infrastructure solutions.
Changing workloads are pushing organizations to consider new infrastructure options.
The latest designs address growing interest and the unique demands of the Internet of Things and Big Data. When cloud service provider Virdata needed to develop a highly scalable platform to collect information from millions of devices and offer Big Data analytics to its customers, it chose a converged infrastructure.

In today’s mobile and digital world, IT speed and agility are essential – which is why organizations are turning to converged infrastructure solutions to get the flexibility they need to transform their business.
A recent IDC white paper reveals how EMC customers around the world are leveraging convergence to deliver faster business outcomes, accelerating their enterprise organizations to cloud speed. Watch this video infographic to see how EMC converged solutions from VCE can help you triumph over the status quo and take on the next generation of IT challenges.
There’s a lot of noise these days about hyper-convergence. IT managers are facing internal pressure to adopt hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) solutions to make their departments more efficient and “cloud-like” as well as external pressure from vendors fighting for market share in an increasingly crowded space. While an HCI solution could bring your organization significant benefits, it’s not necessarily simple to implement, nor is it the optimal solution for every use case. To determine if HCI is right for you, first we need a clear definition of what it is and what it does.

I&O leaders desire more workload scaling from HCIS, but need more convincing. This Gartner research provides insight and guidance on adoption of this technology and its potential to handle more challenging workloads.
Listen as Oracle Executive Vice President of Converged Infrastructure Dave Donatelli announces the expansion of the Oracle Database Appliance portfolio, and explains how Oracle can provide organizations with a pathway to the cloud. Discover how your organization can reduce database complexity, simplify database administration, and better control costs.
Without the proper policies governing cloud usage, a shared infrastructure design, and without a comprehensive yet effective cloud service portfolio, your organization will end up spending more time and money fixing issues rather than delivering desired results to the business.
As business purposes have changed over the years, IT approaches and infrastructures have had to change in lock-step to serve them optimally. IT professionals are now combining the best of the centralized approach – via virtualization, federation, and clouds of all sorts – with the best of the decentralized model – via mobile and localized consumption and production. In this paper, Enterprise Strategy Group examines approaches to IT operational challenges and business requirements. Learn how HP Converged Storage’s comprehensive approach represents a logical evolution development in storage, delivering ease, flexibility and cost-efficiency all in one.
