1 + 1 doesn’t always = 2


Guest Blog By:  Don Wilson, Manager – Hybrid IT  Solutions


There are some questions that have only one right answer. Like “what is 2 + 2?”, “who wrote Harry Potter?”, or “what is the opposite of up?” But when it comes to questions like where to run your mission-critical unified communications and collaboration (UCC) apps—Microsoft® Exchange®, SharePoint®, and Skype® for Business—there’s no single answer that’s going to work for every organization.

While some would have you believe that the “right” answer is “always” cloud, addressing security, data privacy, productivity, performance, and scalability requirements may lead you to adopt an on-premises or hybrid cloud deployment model.

Whatever your decision, HPE is ready to help you design and deploy solutions to optimize UCC capabilities, with infrastructure and services solutions for small to large enterprises in hybrid or on-premises environments. HPE solutions for collaboration modernization using Microsoft Exchange, SharePoint, and Skype for Business are built on industry-leading compute, storage, and networking. They will help you increase agility, security, performance, and productivity—while accelerating time to value with tested and validated solutions. And all of this is delivered through an expert services capability.

Tested HPE reference architectures (RAs) and sizers demonstrate capabilities and best practices to guide discussions and give you confidence in your design decisions across HPE products and services. You can also choose HPE Flex Solutions, which are pre-engineered, pre-configured, and tested solutions comprised of servers, software, storage, networking, options, and services in multiple configurations, sized for SMB and enterprise customers.

If you need assistance with your transformation, HPE Pointnext services and HPE partners have years of industry-leading expertise guiding clients with established tools and management-of change methodologies. Also, you can accelerate your plans to update IT while preserving cash with programs from HPE Financial Services.

 If “cloud math” isn’t coming up with the right answer for you, contact your HPE or authorized partner representative. We can help you sort out which deployment model is right for you, and build your solution from wide selection of compute, storage, and networking choices that deliver predictable performance and intelligent automation.
