RESEARCH PAPER: HPE Synergy Helps Simplify Hybrid IT

By Will Townsend - May 25, 2017
IT is undergoing a significant transformation as businesses look to streamline costs and roll out a new class of cloud-based applications driven by a changing digital economy accelerated by mobility, IoT, and AI. The IT infrastructure as we know it today is not well equipped to improve on the cost structure for traditional workloads nor handle the velocity demands of a new generation of workloads where IT is a focal point for competitive differentiation. Hybrid IT, with its mix of on-premises and public as well as private cloud deployment is a logical next step in datacenter evolution. As one approach to address IT’s changing demands, vendors are bringing to market solutions under a new category called composable infrastructure. You can download the paper here.
