"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.
2.2 Animated solutions video: With the Right Mix of hybrid IT, get central IT to say “yes” by simplifying complex business requests. HPE helps you find your Right Mix and innovate new apps for mobility, IoT, and cloud technologies.
To support a business technology agenda, infrastructure and operations (I&O) professionals must factor critical aspects of their own environments into their decisions and understand how these requirements affect implicit and explicit weighting as they evaluate hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) offerings. This report covers the major variations in workloads and data services that can make an impact on your selection and outlines a methodology for evaluating the true cost of these solutions.
HPE SimpliVity hyperconverged technology for data protection. IDC believes that IT organizations should take a fresh look at data protection and availability and unbind themselves from the limitations of client/server era technologies.
"To remain competitive, organizations need to innovate their practices. But what are the infrastructure, best practices and technologies that lead to successful hybrid IT?
Forrester Consulting evaluated IT decision makers leading their organizations through digital transformation to explore the technologies used, challenges experienced, and benefits gained from their hybrid IT models.
See how other IT leaders are gaining speed and agility while reducing friction through composability and continuous delivery. "
"IT departments have to manage an infrastructure
“duality” — the ability to deploy and manage two sets of applications, each with vastly diverse
infrastructure requirements and service-level objectives. IDC found that by implementing next-generation apps on infrastructure designed for current-generation apps, such businesses
risk putting their DX initiatives in jeopardy. HPE Synergy take key benefits of converged and hyperconverged infrastructure to the next level
by operating on fluid (composable) compute, networking, and storage resource pools and are
optimized for operations as well as applications. "

Read IDG's latest dossier from their recent worldwide survey and interviews to learn why more than half of IT leaders are embracing new approaches like hyperconvergence to efficiently advance business initiatives.
"Customers in the midst of digital transformation look first to the public cloud when seeking dramatic simplification, cost, utilization and flexibility advantages for their new
application workloads. But using public cloud comes with its own challenges. It’s not always possible or practical for enterprises to retire their traditional, on-premises enterprise system still running the company’s most mission-
critical workloads. Hybrid IT – a balanced combination of traditional infrastructure, private cloud and public cloud – is the answer. But a true hybrid IT deployment must go well beyond the current generation of hybrid cloud systems, where the on-premises
and off-premises worlds have largely remained siloed and still have to be independently managed. This paper
seeks to answer how to bring those siloes together by identifying eight essentials that must be met to achieve the ideal hybrid IT implementation."
