You see the quest for simplicity everywhere: public cloud, outsourcing arrangements, colocation and, increasingly, managed services.

One area where it can be hard to achieve the benefits of simplicity is in mission-critical environments, which demand the highest levels of availability and reliability. HPE NonStop Servers are 100% fault tolerant and deliver massive scalability and data integrity with a low TCO. But like any mission-critical infrastructure, HPE NonStop calls for a certain level of attention and expertise from IT staffs. These systems are always-on, always-expanding and always-adapting. It can be challenging for hard-pressed IT organizations to find the time and the skill sets to manage the workloads and the platform.
