IT departments have been facing a growing issue in recent years. While the traditional approach to IT is trusted, the cost and complexity involved leaves less time to focus on innovation. While cloud solutions offer increased speed and agility, moving to an all-cloud solution isn’t always possible or advisable, especially where performance, protection, privacy and control are paramount.

The good news for IT leaders is that there is a way to achieve the agility and economics of the cloud with enterprise-grade performance and protection. Taking a hybrid approach to IT with hyperconverged infrastructure offers significant business, operational and financial benefits.

If you’re looking to make the most of this opportunity, HPE SimpliVity provides an excellent way to create and close hyperconverged business.

What should I be selling?

For SMBs, sell as a simplified data center in-a-box. Minimising complexity, this hyperconverged solution is quick to deploy, easy to use and simple to grow.  It eliminates silos and the need for specialised hardware tuning, while enhancing disaster recovery.

For Remote Offices, focus on the centralised management, with convergence from edge to core.  Hyperconverged systems provide a perfect fit for small spaces and limited budgets that standardise IT and integrate with an organisation’s central IT strategy.

For Line-of-business solutions, highlight the ability to handle key application services such as marketing and e-commerce, without a lot of IT support.  Hyperconvergence reduces IT overheads, without lowering expectations.
