Posted by Melissa Scheidel on Sep 21, 2020 9:46:43 AM

I recently read an article from Gartner on how to reduce IT spend. Although, they had some great points, I think they missed a mark on a few key way to save money. Today, IT budgets are being pinched, and many companies are asking their IT Departments to do more with less. To help with this ongoing challenge, here are five ways to stretch your IT Budget:

Learn How to Leverage Your Legacy Data Center Equipment to Invest in the Next-Generation Data Center

Posted by Vista IT Group on Jul 29, 2020 9:39:23 AM

Refresh your data center with a flexible Hardware-as-a Service (HaaS) consumption model through Vista Financial Services. Trade-in your current or aging infrastructure and use it as a down payment for the next generation Data Center. Instead of a large upfront CAPEX purchase, preserve your cash through a much smaller monthly OPEX model. There are many HPE solutions available that can be tailored to fit your exact data center needs. Adding hardware as you grow can easily be co-termed with your existing lease and we will simply adjust your monthly payment.

HPE c7000 and Blades Going EOS Soon

Posted by Vista IT Group on Sep 24, 2019 4:31:22 PM

HPE c7000 chassis and Gen10 blades will be going End-of-Sale at the end of this year.  If you’re like most HPE blade customers, you aren’t ready to do a large fork lift upgrade to a new platform.  Vista IT can help you extend the life of your c7000 blade infrastructure long after the end of the year.  We take strategic inventory positions on HPE servers prior to them going end-of-sale so we are able to provide new blades long after you can no longer get them anywhere else.  For example, we have new BL460c Gen9 in-stock, even though they went end-of-sale over a year ago and currently have over 150 new Gen9 and Gen10 blades in-stock that can be configured-to-order.
