Editor’s Pick: Converged Infrastructure in Branch Offices
Strategy Guide to Converged Infrastructure in the Branch Office
This document is a strategy guide from Intel and HP about the strategic importance of converged infrastructure in branch offices. Typically, each branch has different hardware and software, without the interoperability needed to connect reliably to the broader organizational network. This is expensive to maintain and makes it difficult to implement new services like mobility and unified communications. Plus, this nonstandard infrastructure could prevent branches from taking advantage of some of the biggest cost-saving trends in IT, such as virtualization and cloud computing.
The guide describes how HP's Converged Infrastructure*, a preconfigured and pretested solution, addresses these issues by simplifying, integrating, and automating storage, networking, servers, and management software.
