If you’re going to compare hyperconverged solutions, make sure it’s apples to apples.


Last fall, we launched a light-hearted social media conversation called #HPEDare2Compare. The goal was to highlight some of our proven hyperconverged performance data and encourage competitors to do the same. After all, we want to make sure our customers – and prospects – are getting the most up-to-date, relevant information that will help them run their businesses and #HPEDare2Compare Apples to Oranges.jpgsimplify their IT platforms.

Until we started #HPEDare2Compare, it was difficult to track down any data from other vendors that backed up some of the pretty outrageous performance claims they were making. This lack of good, comparative data was a big reason for starting this project. We wanted to take their performance numbers and compare them side by side with competitors. With better data, hyperconverged customers have more information, and can therefore make more informed decisions. 

We have been thrilled to see competitors getting involved in the conversation and sharing their stats via #HPEDare2Compare. Customers want to know what they’re getting from their hyperconverged (HCI) solutions – and they want it described to them in a clear, concise way that they can understand.

With that in mind, let’s compare HCI solutions — apples to apples. After all, charts with marketing hype comparisons and unreasonable stats that can be misconstrued or twisted don’t benefit the customer! If they can’t understand what’s in front of them, how can they make a decision that is right for their organization?

#HPEDare2Compare – Apples to apples comparisons!

HPE is beginning the next phase of #HPEDare2Compare – continuing the tradition of simple, fact-based (yet light-hearted) apples to apples comparisons. We encourage all HCI vendors to continue to participate and share their data as well – in a clear, concise, #Apples2Apples way! To get started, here are a few stats that set HPE SimpliVity powered by Intel® hyperconverged solutions apart from any other vendor:dare2compare1.pngdare2compare2.png










Anyone looking for details on HCI performance stats can easily keep up with the campaign by following the hashtag: #HPEDare2Compare. Stay tuned for more fun stats and performance data!
