Today in the United States, employer-sponsored health benefits are the source of coverage for more than 149 million individuals.1 Fueled by many factors, including rising costs, legislative changes, new provider models, and evolving market forces, the health care industry is undergoing a transformation. And as health care evolves, so must the employer’s role in it. What has not changed, however, is employers’ belief that health benefits are a key differentiator for talent. In fact, most large employers plan to continue offering coverage in spite of the uncertainties in the health care market.2 To keep pace with the changing environment, employers must rethink their role in health coverage: how they sponsor, structure, and deliver health benefits, and how they manage costs while keeping employees healthy, productive, and satisfied.

This assessment is composed of a core set of comparative questions, and the option to be assessed in any of three key areas: computing economics, service delivery and business performance. After a half-decade of cost cutting and shrinking IT budgets, the compute infrastructure that powers the enterprise now is typically inefficient, slow and not optimized for business outcomes. It is better suited to the economic realities of 2010 rather than the rigors of the application workloads, delivery models & business expectations of today driven by cloud, mobility, security and big data megatrends. As a result, there is a significant gap between what businesses expect from technology and what IT can deliver.

NoSQL databases are now commonly used to provide a scalable system to store, retrieve and analyze large amounts of data. Most NoSQL databases are designed to automatically partition data and workloads across multiple servers to enable easier, more cost-effective expansion of data stores than the single server/scale up approach of traditional relational databases. Public cloud infrastructure should provide an effective host platform for NoSQL databases given its horizontal scalability, on-demand capacity, configuration flexibility and metered billing; however, the performance of virtualized public cloud services can suffer relative to bare-metal offerings in I/O intensive use cases. Benchmark tests comparing latency and throughput of operating a high-performance in-memory (flash-optimized), key value store NoSQL database on popular virtualized public cloud services and an automated bare-metal platform show performance advantages of bare-metal over virtualized public cloud, further quant

As organizations aim to increase business agility and streamline costs, demand for public cloud services continues to grow exponentially, with Gartner predicting it will become the majority of new IT spending by 2016. This evolving application ecosystem with its intensive performance demands is placing new pressures on traditional public cloud services. Amid this shift, Internap surveyed nearly 250 Internet infrastructure decision makers to gain insight into cloud adoption, requirements and challenges – including the differences in feedback between the cloud-wise, those using cloud services, and the cloud-wary, those with no near-term plans to use cloud services. The details of these findings are reflected in this Cloud Landscape Report.

One thing is clear: the old way of running IT just won’t work in the new business environment.Truth is, preparing your IT department (and your company) to be agile, cost-efficient, metrics-driven, and flexible will require a change in how you operate. To support new business processes, you would do well to turn to a converged system, like HP ConvergedSystem for Virtualization. In this paper, we look at the greatest challenges faced by IT departments, and how traditional configurations, processes, and organizations are poorly-equipped to handle today’s workplace. We discuss the benefits of converged systems that are engineered to handle virtualized workloads. Finally, we look at HP ConvergedSystem for Virtualization as a simple and effective way for businesses to optimize their data center infrastructure and processes to better meet business needs.

The software as a service (SaaS) model of application delivery, more commonly known as ‘cloud deployment’, in which software features are accessed through a Web browser, is an excellent way for manufacturing companies to get the bene?ts of enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems without the need to build additional IT infrastructure. ERP functionality delivered “from the cloud” avoids the complexity and costs that often accompany on premisess ERP implementations, and typically provides a much more favorable total cost of ownership, compared to legacy on premisess deployment. Companies subscribe to the software features that they need and can add new ones as business requirements change, without buying additional servers or storage to support new functionality. The ERP features are the same as for an on premises ERP system, except that it is hosted and maintained on the Cloud provider’s infrastructure.

Many organizations have invested in server consolidation, particularly in their data centers. In remote offices, though, servers and storage exist as isolated islands of infrastructure that require management through separate operational processes and procedures. This approach is costly and places data at risk. However, a new branch converged infrastructure architecture allows IT to consolidate in the branch office to minimize the IT footprint needed to run branch applications-all the while centralizing remote servers and data in the data center.
