How to Reduce Costs & Lower IT Risks with Hyper Converged

In today’s IT environment of always-on business and a constant need to reduce costs, you can’t afford even a single hour of downtime. This is especially true, considering that just one hour of an infrastructure failure can cost your company up to $100,000 per hour.[1]

How can you manage increasingly smaller budgets while also working to lower the risk and TCO of your most critical workload solutions? Your answer: Working with Comport Technology Services and HPE Hyper Converged 380, powered by Intel® Xeon® Processors .

With the help of HPE Hyper Converged 380, you’re able to get firmly on the path to composable infrastructure, saving future upgrade costs, while also offering these cost benefits:

  • Start with a two-node entry point, which can be scaled up to 16 nodes when needed. This choice provides lower CAPEX and more flexibility
  • Provisioning and management are easy for an IT generalist, saving money on specialists and further reducing your operating expenses
  • 62% lower cost for disaster recovery[2]
  • Lower startup cost than Nutanix with linear scaling
  • Support more virtual machines (VMs) per node, which equals lower hardware and software costs
  • The ability to start small and pay-as-you-grow

Over time, IT solutions evolve. Today, Comport sees the power of hyper convergence to eliminate traditional IT silos across the organization and replace those silos with a centralized, single solution. A hyper converged infrastructure centralizes the management of IT resources to consolidate systems, increase resource utilization rates, and lower costs. These objectives are enabled by the creation of pools of compute, storage, and networking resources that can be shared by multiple applications and managed in a collective manner, using policy-driven processes.
