As of this year, 60% of all corporate data is stored in the cloud, and this number is expected to grow as many organizations shift their resources to cloud environments. With such a large amount of data, it is crucial to have a good storage system to keep data safe and easily accessible. Luckily, HPE is adding new storage options to their GreenLake cloud service. In this helpful article, we cover everything you need to know about the HPE GreenLake storage offerings.
HPE has announced a significant and holistic expansion to their GreenLake cloud service that will accommodate a faster and more simplified digital transformation journey for data-first enterprises. The edge-to-cloud platform has taken “a dramatic step forward in the architecture of the platform with compute, storage and networking services all available in a unified platform.” Let’s review the highlights of this simplified cloud service expansion.
When remote work became the norm due to COVID-19, companies rushed to give their employees access to the tools and software they would need in order to effectively perform their jobs at home. Two years after this transition, organizations and their employees seem to be settling in. According to Forbes, “25% of all professional jobs in North America will be remote by the end of 2022.” Remote work, or at least a hybrid option, will most likely be permanent workforce models for many businesses, which obviously leads to new challenges for IT. In this article, we cover IT network challenges, what Aruba’s EdgeConnect Microbranch is, and how it can help your enterprise stay protected while working from home.
While many enterprises have made moves to adopt cloud computing as part of their IT modernization efforts, truly mastering it is another thing entirely. To help, HPE is taking charge of cloud software development by partnering with other leading technology providers to develop and offer solutions that enterprises need to build a datacenter architecture for today’s digital world. One of these service offerings is HPE GreenLake.
The decisions you make today for your enterprise’s digital transformation journey will have lasting impacts for years to come. What may be the best solution for one organization doesn’t necessarily make it the right option for yours, and knowing this when going into the digital transformation journey can save you headaches and heartbreak. Many decisions made by enterprises are based on their needs at the time and not on long-term goals, which can cause additional issues in the future.
Deciding that cloud adoption is what’s best for your enterprise is a positive first step toward digital transformation; however, transforming to a cloud-based infrastructure requires more than just an understanding of the technology. It’s important that as you proceed, you understand the best practices in cloud adoption and how to overcome the common barriers associated with the process.
Today, enterprises need to quickly adapt to ever-changing market and consumer demands in order to achieve a successful (and robust) digital transformation. Adopting a hybrid cloud strategy will allow you to meet the evolving expectations of customers and drive your organization further forward.
It seems like we never have enough time to get everything done that we need to do during our time off. Before you know it, the weekend’s over and there’s still items left on our ‘to-do’ list. That’s certainly the way it is for enterprise backups. If you’re a backup administrator, you know the routine too well. Full and incremental backups take an enormous amount of time. They also consume a lot of resources and bandwidth. Because of their negative impact on production environments, we schedule backup jobs during off-peak hours. The problem is that window just never seems to be quite long enough and with burgeoning data repositories and an expanding application portfolio, that window seems to only get smaller. Face it, scheduling backups in the hope they complete in time without interfering with one another is stressful. Administrators can only hope the last backup job completes before users begin to trickle in Monday morning. If not, users will be competing with those same backup jobs for network bandwidth and server utilization resources and the help desk phones begin to ring.
On September 28, 2021, HPE announced a new comprehensive series of cloud services for HPE GreenLake edge-to-cloud platform. This platform provides customers with unmatched capabilities to power digital transformation for their applications and data.
Within the “CIO’s As-a-Service playbook,” it explains how the previous consumption-oriented model of the public cloud system changed everything. However, the previous consumption-oriented model required IT to buy service and resource capacities themselves, which introduced new risks for CIOs. These limitations were identified when contrasted with the scalability and cost efficiencies of the cloud. IT wants to deliver the public cloud experience their users crave, yet some workloads cannot make that transition and must remain on-premises for many reasons.
