Top 10 ways HPE Synergy is #Composed2Win



Basset Hound for blog.JPGToday anyone can change the world with a new idea, creating an age of relentless competition.  It’s never been easier to turn ideas into new products, new services, new applications, even new industries. Of course, that means it’s not only easier for you, it’s easier for your competitors – those you know and those you aren’t even aware of yet.

Quickly bringing your innovative ideas to life while keeping your business running smoothly can be challenging. Your IT team is being asked to respond to changing needs quickly and reliably, with lower operating costs AND to deliver new applications faster. 

Composable infrastructure enables IT to create the infrastructure they need with incredible velocity, and it does so while reducing operational cost and complexity. In short, it simplifies IT while making it more scalable and cost effective.  Composable infrastructure is ideal for traditional workloads and environments, as well as newer cloud and mobile apps. A growing number of businesses are turning to composable infrastructure to solve these challenges.

HPE is launching #Composed2Win to explain the benefits of composable infrastructure, show how it is different, and detail how organizations across all industries are winning by implementing it.  Over the next few months, I invite you to follow #Composed2Win.

Below I’ve listed my top 10 ways you can be #Composed2Win:

1. Reduced costs: HPE Synergy can pay for itself in less than 1 year by lowering software licensing costs. And moving to HPE Synergy can give you up to a 305% ROI with an 8.9 month payback period.[1]

2. Stateless computing: HPE Synergy allows your IT team to use software-defined profiles with both the physical state and operating system images for rapid implementation delivering infrastructure as code.

3. Automation driven engine: Designed with a modern, standard-based API and supported by a large and growing partner ecosystem like Docker and Chef, delivering up to a 96% reduction in infrastructure configuration times.  A single line of code can deploy your solution.Composed2Win dog frisbee.jpg

4. Faster speeds: The demand for larger and faster bandwidth is growing. HPE Synergy delivers over 16Tbps of total throughput for 12 servers and is ready for your most demanding I/O applications.

5. True composability: HPE Synergy, the industry’s first composable infrastructure, provides fluid pools of resources that can be combined for each application’s needs, letting you compose workloads at cloud-like speed. 

6. Flexibility: HPE Synergy composes and recomposes infrastructures based on template-driven automation. You get unprecedented agility because you can provision and be ready to boot in under 30 seconds. Now you really can deploy/redeploy your compute and storage assets, easily and quickly.

7. Simplified management: HPE Synergy with HPE OneView gives you a unified view of shared storage pools and the health status of your servers, profiles, connectivity, and enclosures, ensuring complete infrastructure visibility for more informed, faster decision-making.geese migrating.jpg

8. Scalability: Adding a new HPE Synergy frame is easy and everything auto-discovers through HPE OneView, so it’s simple for you to scale infrastructure and grow the pool of fluid resources that can be shared across your infrastructure for any workload.

9. Increased efficiency: HPE Synergy delivers a software-defined fluid pool of resources that you can manage, change, and redirect on the fly – from compute to connectivity to storage. By maximizing resource utilization, IT can eliminate overprovisioning and stranded capacity while ensuring right-sized resource allocation for applications, significantly lowering CAPEX.

10. Award winning: HPE Synergy is delivering top performance, recently scoring six world records on the latest JAVA server benchmark, SPECjbb2015[2]. And for your critical databases and analytics, HPE Synergy is certified for Oracle VM and Oracle Linux, as well as SAP HANA.[3]
