In business today, mitigating business risk is critical. But so is delivering more business value. Finding a balance between the two is difficult. You also have to consider the realities of data growth and complexity, business disruptions, communication breakdowns, increased competition, consolidation, and acquisitions. With so much going on and resources so stretched, it’s difficult to tackle challenges both efficiently and strategically. This white paper 
from IDC and HP reviews the process of business risk mitigation and outline how IT managers can protect and grow the business using converge infrastructure.
“Converged Infrastructure” is all about delivering modular, standards-based technologies designed for convergence. The result is an infrastructure that simplifies, integrates, and automates it all: Storage, networking, servers, management software, even power and cooling. The efficiency gains allow you to shift the bulk of your IT budget from operations to business innovations.
Regardless of the IT challenge, one imperative trumps them all: Do more with less. What’s more, it also echoes a revolution taking place right now in IT. Virtualization, cloud-based software and services, and the convergence of new and existing technologies are making it possible for us to get more done with fewer resources. Costly IT silos are being transformed into end-to-end infrastructures that integrate technical components, automate processes, and simplify technology from purchase to retirement. IDC expert Ray Boggs shows how an effective disaster recovery strategy accompanied by the components of an HP Converged Infrastructure deliver the value you need today by positioning you to manage, protect, and grow your business through each pain point and milestone.
