Good news! HPE Cloud Volumes promotions for cloud data services extended to January 31st 2021

In the wake of COVID-19, many businesses had to face up to the new realities of unpredictable storage demands, exposed data vulnerabilities with heightened ransomware risk, and the challenges of preserving cash and maintaining business continuity. 

Adding to this complexity, shelter-in-place directives make it difficult for IT managers to even access their data centers. Perhaps now, more than ever before, businesses need enterprise storage that is easy to access and consume. Enterprise storage that can be delivered-as-a-service.

That’s why we’re thrilled to announce that we’ve extended our offers to help you get through these challenging times. Until January 31st, 2021, test-drive HPE Cloud Volumes, a suite of enterprise cloud data services. Take advantage of 10 TiB of free capacity per month for 90 days* (now available worldwide), and $3500 (USD) credit toward each qualified subscription!**

HPE Cloud Volumes customers experience success

Still deciding if you’re ready to sign up for the HPE Cloud Volumes promotion?  We have three new videos that feature customers who have benefitted from our enterprise cloud data services.

The first is Florence, South Carolina-based ACS Technologies. ACS Technologies is the leading provider of information management solutions for churches, schools and other faith-based organizations. They required a disaster recovery solution that could work for any workload, across any cloud because their goal was to achieve multi-cloud flexibility. Without HPE Cloud Volumes, this wouldn’t be possible. They would face cloud lock-ins, complex management, and manual and tedious migration.

Once they learned about HPE Cloud Volumes, their decision, according to Senior Network Administrator Carl Wagner, was “essentially a no brainer.” With HPE Cloud Volumes, they can easily and effortlessly transfer their data to and from the cloud with no egress costs, no vendor lock-in, and complete visibility. Learn why ACS Technology is in a much better place because of HPE Cloud Volumes. 

When iCorps Technology, a pioneer in comprehensive IT outsourcing for businesses in and around the Northeast, needed an immediate solution for their client in the hospitality industry, they looked to HPE Cloud Volumes for a quick and cost-effective solution that didn’t require any additional space. Because HPE Cloud Volumes doesn’t require separate ISV backup master and media servers, iCorps Technology was able to deliver on service with multiple use cases, including direct backup to the cloud, hybrid cloud backup, quick data recovery, and access to any public cloud platform. To hear why iCorps Technology “wouldn’t hesitate to recommend” HPE Cloud Volumes, watch this video

The third customer in this series is ShotSpotter, a critical business that proactively addresses gun violence by collecting data from sensors on the edge to detect gunfire incidences, in under 60 seconds. In order to do this, ShotSpotter requires hyper scale performance with high data availability, low latency, flexibility, and security delivered through our pay-as-you-go service.

Acknowledging the critical need for retained data for the use of forensic analysis and evidence, HPE Cloud Volumes provides the confidence of secure data protection as a critical component of our solution that’s effortless, efficient, and reliable.

“My excitement with HPE Cloud Volumes is very high.  I can sleep at night knowing that I have the data backed up” said Vinnie, Senior Systems Administrator at ShotSpotter.  Watch this video to hear more from Vinnie.
