Update your hyper-converged system during lunch

Diana_Z

System maintenance can be a nightmare for employees and customers in any organization. For example during maintenance, employees may not have access to critical productivity tools like Outlook or SharePoint, which can prevent them from operating business as usual. Or, a customer may not be able to visit your company’s website during a maintenance window. However, the worst part of maintenance can be when you think you’ve correctly updated the infrastructure only to realize that the patch you implemented brought the system down due to an unforeseen error. Now the planned downtime has gone from one hour to two hours, and your CEO is pressuring you to hurry because it is costing him money. Research has proven that system downtime can cost companies thousands of dollars[1].

What if you had a solution that helped you during your system maintenance—one that didn’t require a lot of expertise? Better yet, what if it could be completed during a non-disruptive quiet period, like over your lunch period? And, what if the maintenance didn’t run the risk of errors and didn’t require any downtime?

Due to the intuitive nature of the HPE Hyper Converged 380 Management UI, an IT generalist can automatically update firmware and drivers without impacting operations. (Goodbye site downtime or Outlook and SharePoint outages!) And because the HPE Hyper Converged 380, powered by Intel, is updated via a complete package that has been tested and validated by HPE, you can be assured that all aspects of the appliance work together seamlessly without the risk of human error. With just three simple clicks, you can reduce errors and increase uptime without impacting operations.

Curious to see how it works? Watch this short video to see how easily and quickly you can update an HPE Hyper Converged 380.
