How do you take your coffee?


HPE_3357_BAN_RA_1_1024x512.jpgGuest Blog By:  Don Wilson, Manager – Hybrid IT  Solutions

Black or with milk? Cream? Sugar? What about espresso drinks? When you order coffee, you expect to get it exactly the way you want it—and coffee shops offer lots of options, so you can get it just right. Shouldn’t it be the same way when you’re deploying a unified communications and collaboration (UCC) solution?

At HPE, we think that your UCC solution should be as unique as your business. That’s why we don’t lock you into one hardware platform. HPE solutions for collaboration modernization using Microsoft® Exchange®, SharePoint®, and Skype® for Business support customer choice across multiple HPE platforms: ProLiant, BladeSystem, Apollo, Synergy, Converged, and Hyperconverged solutions. HPE Storage provides offerings from entry-level to enterprise storage solutions with hybrid and all-flash options. The HPE networking portfolio, including Aruba and Arista, gives you choice and a strong foundation from the edge/campus to the data center.

These choices are available in tested reference architectures (RAs), reference configurations (RCs), and sizers that demonstrate capabilities and best practices to guide discussions and give you confidence that your design decisions meet your business needs with HPE products and services. You have the option to choose HPE Flex Solutions: pre-engineered, pre-configured solutions comprised of servers, software, storage, networking, options, and services, tested to ensure that they “just work.” These flex solutions come in multiple configurations, sized for SMB and enterprise customers.

The choices don’t stop there. For enterprise customers, HPE Flexible Capacity changes the way you consume IT to align with your actual business needs. By paying only for what you use and leveraging an on-site buffer to scale up or down on demand, you can save money by eliminating overprovisioning. For small to midsized businesses, HPE Consume IT—including HPE Subscription, HPE Trade-In, equipment removal and value recovery—simplifies the procurement process and you pay for technology only as you use it.

You have the choice of working with one of our Microsoft-trained service professionals worldwide. HPE Pointnext and HPE partners help you through the complete solution lifecycle process from advisory discussions to support making the right decision, transformation planning to minimize business disruption, through to operation and adoption recommendations ensuring that you maximize the benefits of your new collaboration platform.  

If you’re thirsty for the perfect UCC solution, contact your HPE or authorized partner representative. We will help you select and build your solution from a wide range of infrastructure, services, and financing options that add up to a solution that satisfies your tastes and budget.
