By 2020, the proliferation of as-a-service technology, tech-savvy workers, and increased business complexity will widen the gap between business demand and traditional IT supply.  To drive innovation, businesses need to quickly capitalize on new applications like big data and new delivery models like cloud, and not be constrained by the complexity of existing IT models.


For over four years, HP has been laying the groundwork for Converged Systems. With HP’s Converged Infrastructure portfolio including HP ProLiant Gen8, HP BladeSystem, HP Converged Storage, HP FlexNetworking, and HP OneView, HP invested to build the industry’s only complete infrastructure portfolio designed for convergence.  HP Converged Systems are not old technologies bolted together – they are built from components that were designed with convergence in mind.  They are designed to integrate with existing environments so they will not just become new islands of technology. 


So whether you are moving to virtualization and cloud, need to gain control of IT sprawl and big data, or need to quickly deploy new workloads, HP Converged Systems are integrated solutions designed for convergence and optimized for specific workloads. Learn more about HP Converged Systems and how HP expertise and experience can quickly help you accelerate your IT.
