In 2023, the era of using data to transform how businesses operate continued to gain steam. To keep up with shifting business demands and ensure data remains safe, security and IT teams need to expand the capabilities within their support teams and the widening IT environments they cater to. The challenge is even more significant with the rise of modern hybrid cloud setups, which trigger unexpected complexity and unknown security vulnerabilities.
As companies adopt multi- or hybrid cloud strategies at a rapid pace to accelerate digital initiatives, the advantages of this technology are not without its challenges. In this blog post, we explore the current state of digital acceleration and cloud security, and how businesses can find an integrated cloud solution that works best for their existing ecosystems.
Every day, IT leaders read articles about why their organization needs to be in the cloud. In this article, we want to lay out how the journey to the cloud has unfolded and identify how HPE continues to play a key role in defining what the cloud is becoming. While many enterprises have embarked on a cloud journey, the destination may still be on-prem.
As a value-added reseller (VAR), WEI relentlessly pursues avenues to enrich the solutions our customers opt for. Our enhanced value propositions encompass installation and ongoing support services, software and hardware integration processes, solution customization, and much more. Recently, WEI added another groundbreaking value add as we received authorization to facilitate Multiparty Private Offers (MPO) for Microsoft commercial marketplace customers who purchase eligible cloud solutions. For Microsoft Azure Marketplace customers who have unused Microsoft Azure Consumption Commitment (MACC) funds, any qualified software purchase through MPO will count toward filling their pre-committed cloud spend.
As of this writing, WEI is just one of a handful of VARs in the United States that has earned this authorization as it is an early adopter of the MPO program.
Have you ever cleaned your house and identified random items scattered around or realized an appliance needs maintenance? Businesses experience similar scenarios when dealing with data and workloads. It's like navigating a cluttered space in desperate need of organization. That’s where HPE GreenLake comes in. This technology can be your personal organization guru and bring order to your data.
Cloud operations have significantly reshaped digital transformation, especially storage-as-a-service. The focus for storage management is shifting from infrastructure to applications, revolutionizing how businesses handle data. Despite these advancements, challenges such as costly services, data availability rates, scalability, and complex management require careful consideration and resolution.
It is no surprise most enterprises are prioritizing network modernization in the day and age of digital transformation. Outdated infrastructure harms productivity and hinders security, making it a challenge to build a future-ready network that meets evolving expectations. All too often, our team will assess networks based on traditional VLAN architectures that will 100% struggle to accommodate hundreds of thousands of users and devices. A modern network should seamlessly connect remote workers to physical locations, data centers, and the cloud, following an edge-centric and data-driven approach.
Picture this: You've just been involved in a minor car accident. Thankfully, you have car insurance, and while you hoped to never use it, it sits available at a moment’s notice. In the business world, that's the essence of Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS). It's like insurance for your critical data and applications: it might seem unnecessary at first, but when disaster strikes, you'll be grateful for the investment.
In the era of remote working cybersecurity risks, evolving IoT, increased cloud services, and revolving ransomware, businesses require reliable IT infrastructure to protect their data and ensure continuity of operations. According to Veeam's 2023 Trends In Data Protection report, 79% of IT leaders see a “Protection Gap” between tolerable data loss and how IT protects their data. Addressing this gap usually involves an upgrade of various disaster recovery services for production and protection. To tackle this concern, enterprises are better off subscribing to Disaster Recovery as-a-Service (DRaaS) rather than traditional disaster recovery solutions for cost efficiency, scalability, and reliability.
In today's digital landscape, managing computing infrastructure has become an increasingly complex and challenging task. As more businesses move their data and applications to the cloud, concerns around cloud security and compliance have become increasingly prevalent. Public cloud providers, such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform (GCP), offer a range of security features and tools to protect their customers' data. Despite these efforts, breaches may occur and businesses face limitations of liabilities from third-party providers in such events. One solution that addresses these concerns originates from HPE GreenLake.
