The Power of Flexibility

Driven by unprecedented business demands, IT is expected to deliver more services and innovative solutions at record speed to an ever-widening global customer base. Meanwhile, high operational costs, a highly complex IT infrastructure, an explosion in big data usage and increased business and government mandates intensify data center management headaches. For IT management, top priorities for the year ahead include business processes improvements and increasing IT’s capacity to drive business innovations, according to the CIO magazine 2013 State of the CIO survey. In response to these pressures, data centers are increasingly moving toward cloud computing (private cloud in particular)as a way to deliver flexible, innovative, cost-effective business-driven services.

Much of the private cloud infrastructure remains on premise in the data center, which makes it an attractive solution for organizations concerned about privacy, security and compliance. The drawback is that buying reserve capacity for peak times can be expensive and tie up capital, while preparing for increased demand may result in long delays in the procurement process.

HP’s Data Center Care Flexible Capacity Service solves this problem by delivering infrastructure as a service, enabling customers to align cost with usage by quickly increasing or decreasing capacity on demand. Learn how your business can achieve greater agility and operation efficiency while avoiding large capital investment in IT.
