Why all the hype for HPE’s next generation blades?
One of the driving forces behind technology’s accelerating development rate is the need for efficiency. The same way the assembly line came in and totally revolutionized the scales of production by making the whole process many times more efficient, new data, infrastructure, and general online services are constantly cropping up with the same purpose.
Perhaps one the more exciting developments from a business perspective is the HPE Synergy platform which offers integrated next generation blades from leaders Hewlett Packard Enterprise.
With HPE Synergy, however, the company is now looking to up the ante with a powerful new platform that promises to provide your infrastructure with all sorts of goodies, from streamlining workloads to saving you money to basically arraying your production in such a way that you are maximizing profits.
Let’s take a look at some of the key areas that HPE synergy helps provide all those benefits to your business and the questions to ask yourself to know if you’re ready for it.
New and Efficient Workflow Options
One of the greatest benefits of working in the online world is that — with the right solutions in place — streamlining production has never been easier. Like the earlier assembly line comparison, HPE capabilities can help your company operate at max efficiency.
These next generation blades help accomplish this by doing away with siloed work by compiling all your workloads and workflows into a single site, therefore, assuring that nothing is going to waste.
For instance, if before you were dedicating 40% of a resource to Task ‘A’ and 40% to Task ‘B’, but you only needed 30% for each, that means you were essentially throwing away 20% of said resource. But since they were siloed off and working in their individual lanes, it was difficult to see this waste. With silos being eliminated through a revamped architecture that HPE Synergy offers, you can now reallocate that 20% that was formerly being wasted, meaning that more projects can be completed and money can be saved.
Agility is Key
The greatest companies are often defined by their ability to adapt to change. With next generation blades, you can treat the whole operation as code so you can make changes on the fly as you see fit.
This equates to a level of customization and optimization that was previously unavailable, or at least not so easily obtained. With HPE next generation blades, you have the ability to design your workflow and workloads to be highly efficient and more accessible than before.
You are also able to quickly make updates and changes to your systems. For example, you can take those extra resources saved and apply them where needed, adding and subtracting instantly so that each process is appropriately supported, but never given more than it needs (reducing waste).
Give Your DevOps Team What They Want
The thing about HPE Synergy is that it allows for enhanced development capabilities, meaning that changes can be enacted in a flash. HPE calls this ‘cloud-like speed’ for good reason.
The idea is that instead of having to do data deep diving, long analyses of your business workflow, and other often tedious and time-consuming tasks, the next generation blades allow you to essentially modify things seamlessly and however your DevOps team sees fit.
This type of development is gaining in popularity in companies around the world. After all, look how popular the Agile development philosophy has become, alongside waterfall organizational development and other more modern ways of accomplishing tasks — quickly, efficiently, securely, and without interruptions to your systems.
In the old days, you had a very rigid top-down structure, but that simply doesn’t work in today’s environment. With HPE Synergy, cutting through that old-school organizational structure allows you to speed up your operation, saving you time and money.
Work Smarter, Not Harder
When you get down to the fundamentals of HPE Synergy, what you’ll find is that next generation blades offer you options. Options to run the business the way you want to run it, with an emphasis on efficiency and optimization..
Consider that with your company running smoother and more efficiently — not to mention having a much more centralized and easier to manage — you’ll be able to free up your IT team to focus on other areas of your operations.
With that in mind, HPE Synergy’s next generation blades are designed so that you can not only uncover actionable information, but it also guides you in how best to use that information to benefit your business.
Implement as You See Fit
The best tech in the world is only as good as its UI and usability. After all, having a silver bullet is only useful if you know how to fire it.
If you look beyond just the data analytics and software side of things, you’ll notice this can undoubtedly save you time and money, a recurring theme when one takes a closer look at HPE next generation blade options.
The solution is very scalable, allowing you to deploy the infrastructure as needed. HPE products can be slowly integrated into your existing infrastructure in smaller increments and over a longer period of time. The power is in your hands.
