Delivering more together
At the most basic level, HP delivers best-in-class products that are open for connectivity to any heterogeneous environment consisting of multivendor servers, operating systems, storage, applications, and other components. “Open” has always been the foundation of the HP strategy for doing business. Yet using HP StorageWorks solutions and HP servers together in the same environment can yield additional advantage for the Adaptive Enterprise. By deploying HP storage and HP servers, along with HP services, customers gain more for their IT environment and overall business—more stability, efficiency, adaptability, and, ultimately, more return on their IT investment.
“There are so many advantages to having one powerful vendor like HP that can integrate all our solutions into a cohesive, flexible infrastructure…we looked at SAN solutions from Sun/Hitachi, EMC, IBM, and HP…only HP offered the total solution we needed.”
