Software-Defined & Cloud

February has continued to be a busy month as the acquisition of SimpliVity has successfully been completed. I have attached a couple of blog posts to keep you updated on this news.

HPE officially closes on SimpliVity acquisition

Analyst reaction to HPE’s SimpliVity acquisition


The other interesting event that happened at the tail end of the month was the outage of AWS. I am sure you have already read a lot about it and don’t want to add more, but it does pose an interesting question about having a more distributed strategy of how to run your applications and store data for your business…essentially creating a Hybrid IT strategy made up of traditional IT, Private and Public Cloud. Enjoy.

How to easily calculate your true private cloud costs

Before making a large financial decision, most people thoroughly research their options. For example, when looking for a new place to live, my decision would be based on a variety of factors, such as cost, location, the number of people living there, and length of my anticipated stay. The same should be true before a business determines which cloud model is right for their different applications and workloads.

6 hybrid cloud adoption trends

2017 is already shaping up to be the year ofenterprise cloud. More than half of enterprises interested in the cloud are looking to deploy with a multi cloud strategy. That’s because hybrid cloud gives organization more flexibility to choose the right mix of cloud deployment models for each workload or workgroup.

Where are the candles? My business just went dark!

A hybrid IT strategy is fast becoming the new reality for many companies who want to find the Right Mix of cloud services for their business. If you’re not considering a hybrid approach to cloud, you are potentially adding significant risks to your day-to-day business.

Closing the gap to make true hybrid cloud a reality

On January 31st, HPE sponsored a Wikibon CrowdChat, Simplify Hybrid Cloud, where analysts, IT industry luminaries and many others shared thoughts on deploying hybrid cloud. Over 80 people participated in the one hour live chat, resulting in 479 posts, more than 2,000 views, 3.4 million impressions!

Gravic publishes new case study on Datacenter Migration Using HPE Shadowbase Zero Downtime Migration

Gravic recently published a new case study, A Large Financial Institution Migrates Datacenters with No Downtime Using HPE Shadowbase ZDM. A major financial company offers person-to-person money transfers, money orders, and business payments. The company implemented an active/active system with two NonStop systems located 1,000 miles apart, and the databases were synchronized with a legacy bi-directional data replication solution. When the company decided to move its systems to other cities, upgrading them in the process, it could not tolerate an application outage during the move, so it relied on HPE Shadowbase Zero Downtime Migration (ZDM) software to avoid application downtime and provide full business continuity protection while the move took place. Its customers were able to make money transfers and use all applications as the servers and services were relocated. The company also relied on HPE Shadowbase ZDM to replace its legacy data replication software product and position itself for continuous availability into the future.
