Security, meet simplicity: how hyperconvergence curbs risk


Noted psychologist Abraham Maslow organized the needs of humans into a hierarchy. Basic things like food, shelter and security come first. When these are reliably met, an individual is able to pursue higher-level needs like relationships, social accomplishments and respect. The key concept is that higher-level needs can only be pursued when lower-level needs are consistently satisfied.

Those of us who work in IT definitely understand the basic need for security. IT leaders need to know that their data and systems are all safely backed up, and that tbigstock-Business-man-holding-a-card-wi-136107953.jpghey will come back online quickly after an outage. When these basic requirements are secured, IT can begin to focus on the next level: innovation to drive the business forward.

Infrastructure backup, reliability, and support are huge concerns for mid-sized businesses and enterprises with remote offices. These organizations need to keep pace with growing and sometimes unpredictable workloads; they want to be able to scale-up safely, quickly and seamlessly when necessary. Additionally, they need to maintain business continuity and ensure centralized recovery and replication of data.

At the same time, they realize that adding complex new systems in any environment can increase the risk of human error, so they’re looking for simple, straightforward solutions.

Game-changing simplicity on a tried-and-true architecture

The HPE Hyper Converged 380 powered by Intel® is an all-in-one compute, software-defined storage and intelligent virtualization solution that enables mid-sized businesses and remote offices to meet these requirements. It offers a simplified, consumer-inspired user interface that makes deploying VMs and managing IT easy. It simplifies many tasks that once had to be performed by specialists, so that they can be handled by IT generalists. The solution’s simplicity reduces the element of human error, delivering resiliency and reduced risk to medium-sized businesses and remote offices.

The HPE Hyper Converged 380 is built on a tested, validated, robust architecture: the HPE ProLiant DL380 Gen9 Server. The world’s best-selling server, the ProLiant DL380 is field-proven in a variety of use cases, including virtualization, virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) and cloud applications. (For more information, see this HPE Hyper Converged 380 Business Value Analysis from Porter Consulting.)

But what about application availability, reliability, and data protection?
