Bring cloud agility to your datacentre with HPE

Posted: 31 August 2018 By: Tech Data Categories: Solutions

To ensure they stay competitive in today’s fast-paced market, your customers need an IT solution which keeps them agile and able to react quickly to change. However, investing in more capacity for those ‘just in case’ scenarios comes at a cost that few organisations can justify. 

How can organisations overcome this challenge?

Organisations are constantly struggling to balance the cost of IT infrastructure with the demand for more capacity. A flexible, pay-as-you-go solution could be the answer to supporting growth and innovation, in a way that’s affordable.

Being able to scale up and shrink down capacity in-line with business need enables organisations to acquire new customers with ease. It also makes it easier to service existing customers who want to expand. Whilst public cloud provides the necessary flexibility and scale however, it isn’t the right solution for every business case. To keep control over security, performance and regulatory compliance, an on-premises solution often makes most sense.
