Hewlett Packard Enterprise provides hyperconverged infrastructure solutions that help its customers increase the operational efficiency of IT infrastructure and data services. HPE commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study and examine the potential return on investment (ROI) enterprises may realize by deploying hyperconverged infrastructure. The purpose of this study is to provide readers with a framework to evaluate the potential financial impact of HPE SimpliVity on their organizations.

To better understand the benefits, costs, and risks associated with this investment, Forrester interviewed several customers with years of experience using HPE SimpliVity. HPE helps its customers integrate all infrastructure services in virtualized environments onto x86 building blocks.

Prior to using HPE SimpliVity, the customers faced expensive upgrades to their existing server and storage infrastructure, increasing complexity to keep up with best practices for backup/recovery and disaster recovery, and rapidly growing virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) deployments. Overall, using HPE SimpliVity resulted in reduced costs of 69%. The IT manager at a financial services firm told Forrester, “I’m able to spend more time finding better solutions for the business instead of spending it on day-to- day maintenance.”
