Servers & Systems: The Right Compute

Re: Let the sun shine in with HPE Hybrid Cloud Small Business Solutions


Designed to build upon the core features of HPE ProLiant Gen10 Servers, simple and secure HPE Hybrid Cloud offerings provide the essential pathway to enhanced productivity, improved IT service delivery, and increased profits.

One of the greatest benefits of working with shpe-hybrid-cloud-small-business-solutions_blog.jpgmall and midsize companies (SMBs) like yours is your ability to react quickly to changes in the marketplace.  When you discover an opportunity, you can be quick to investigate and respond to it. But the speed at which you can act also has certain technology requirements to support your momentum. Savvy small and mid-size business owners like you know that cloud can provide the right set of conditions that allow you to confidently meet and even exceed stretch goals and customer requirements. And, with the economics of scale, you see the advantages of hosting applications and data off-premises without having to buy and manage the infrastructure to support them.

You have also come to realize that not all applications and data belong in the public cloud. For example, high volume resources may run too slow, or be completely unavailable should your cloud provider or internet connection go down. You may also need to keep sensitive data on-premises to better protect and secure it, while complying with privacy regulations; you may have periods of peak demand that impact performance.

Here's where Hybrid Cloud comes in

Hybrid Cloud lets you keep local control of critical resources on-premises, while moving less critical applications and some less sensitive data storage to the cloud. You still have the ability to tap into cloud resources on-demand to maintain performance and availability during peak hours of operation.
