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:
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.
We are proud to announce Vista has been promoted to Gold Distributor status within HPE Replacement Parts Distribution Program. As one of only a handful of replacement parts distributors in the country, Vista is honored to receive this designation and pass along all the cost and efficiency benefits to our customers.
Attention all HPE blade customers, MSPs & service providers! Are you ready for one of the most disruptive product end-of-life announcements to come along in decades? That’s right, after more than 15 years of market share dominance, HPE is officially discontinuing its c7000 blade architecture. There’s no need to panic. Yet. End-of-Sale for the blades and enclosures isn’t until January 1, 2020. But that’s only a few months away, so if you haven’t started working on a strategy, attend our up-coming webinar to better understand your options.
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.
Discover which HPE storage solution makes the most sense for your business. In this webinar we'll provide an overview of HPE's top storage platforms along with a side-by-side comparison and use-case analysis. We'll also discuss how HPE InfoSight can predicatively reduce risk with a comprehensive approach to data integrity.
