Businesses are using hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) to untangle today’s big IT challenges. HCI can help you accelerate workloads, meet growing storage needs, gain the commercial benefits of hybrid cloud and more – all with easy-to-manage building blocks.
Infrastructure considerations for IT leaders
By 2020, deep learning will have reached a fundamentally different stage of maturity. Deployment and adoption will no longer be confined to experimentation, becoming a core part of day-to-day business operations across most fields of research and industries.
Why? Because advancements in the speed and accuracy of the hardware and software that underpin deep learning workloads have made it both viable and cost-effective. Much of this added value will be generated by deep learning inference – that is, using a model to infer something about data it has never seen before. Models can be deployed in the cloud or data center, but more and more we will see them on end devices like cameras and phones.
Intel predicts that there will be a shift in the ratio between cycles of inference and training from 1:1 in the early days of deep learning, to well over 5:1 by 2020¹. Intel calls this the shift to ‘inference at scale’ and, with inference also taking up
-memory databases have moved from being an expensive option for exceptional analytics workloads, to delivering on a far broader set of goals. Using real-world examples and scenarios, in this guide we look at the component parts of in-memory analytics, and consider how to ensure such capabilities can be deployed to maximize business value from both the technology and the insights generated.
Evaluating an existing HPC platform for efficient AI-driven workloads
The growth of artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities, data volumes and computing power in recent years mean that AI is now a serious consideration for most organizations. When combined with high-performance computing (HPC) capabilities, its potential grows even stronger. However, converging the two approaches requires careful thought and planning. New AI initiatives must align with organizational strategy. Then AI workloads must integrate with your existing HPC infrastructure to achieve the best results in the most efficient and cost- effective way. This paper outlines the key considerations for organizations looking to bring AI into their HPC environment, and steps they can take to ensure the success of their first forays into HPC/AI convergence.
Big Data and analytics workloads represent a new frontier for organizations. Data is being collected from sources that did not exist 10 years ago.

Big Data- und Analytik-Workloads bringen für Unternehmen neue Herausforderungen mit sich. Die erfassten Daten stammen aus Quellen, die vor zehn Jahren noch gar nicht existierten. Es werden Daten von Mobiltelefonen, maschinengenerierte Daten und Daten aus Webseiten-Interaktionen erfasst und analysiert. In Zeiten knapper IT-Budgets wird die Lage zusätzlich dadurch verschärft, dass die Big Data-Volumen immer größer werden und zu enormen Speicherproblemen führen.
Das vorliegende White Paper informiert über die Probleme, die Big Data-Anwendungen für Storage-Systeme mit sich bringen, sowie darüber, wie die Auswahl der richtigen Storage-Infrastruktur Big Data- und Analytik-Anwendungen optimieren kann, ohne das Budget zu sprengen.
I Big Data e gli analytics workloads sono la nuova frontiera per le aziende. I dati vengono raccolti da fonti che non esistevano 10 anni fa. Tutti i dati dei telefoni cellulari, i dati generati dalle macchine e i dati relativi all’interazione con i siti vengono raccolti e analizzati. Inoltre, con i budget IT sempre più sotto pressione, l’impatto ambientale dei Big Data non fa che aumentare e pone grandi sfi de per i sistemi storage.
Questo documento fornisce informazioni sulle problematiche che le applicazioni dei Big Data pongono sullo storage e su come scegliere le più corrette infrastrutture per ottimizzare e consolidare le applicazioni dei Big Data e degli analytics, senza prosciugare le fi nanze.

Discover HPE OneSphere, a hybrid cloud management solution that enables IT to deliver private infrastructure with public-cloud ease. With the proliferation of self-service, on-demand infrastructure, enterprise developers have come to expect infrastructure as a service. However, the constraints of existing infrastructure and tools make this mean heavier workloads for IT teams.
"Customers in the midst of digital transformation look first to the public cloud when
seeking dramatic simplification, cost, utilization and flexibility advantages for their new
application workloads. But using public cloud comes with its own challenges. It’s often
not as easy as advertised. And it’s not always possible or practical for enterprises to retire
their traditional, on-premises enterprise system still running the company’s most mission-critical workloads. Hybrid IT – a balanced combination of traditional infrastructure,
private cloud and public cloud – is the answer. "
Discover why businesses undergoing digital transformation need storage technologies beyond all flash. HPE has just introduced a solution, which will start to ship in calendar 4Q18, that leverages storage-class memory (SCM) and NVMe for HPE's 3PAR and Nimble Storage. This IDC white paper takes a look at the evolving enterprise storage market and which workloads tend to require low latency and very high throughput and bandwidth, and gives a brief overview of one of the first enterprise storage offerings based around these two technologies, HPE Memory-Driven Flash.

In this era of digital disruption, businesses must be more agile to capture opportunities. Many viewed cloud computing technology as the way to do this, promising to address agility, scalability, and cost. But in moving to the cloud, many found that its security, compliance, and performance did not fully meet their needs. Additionally, previous common thought was public cloud is less expensive than private cloud. We now know that is not true in all cases. Savvy businesses realise hybrid IT, which includes both offpremises and on-premises services, enables better agility. After initial experience with public cloud offerings, businesses learned that many workloads are best hosted onpremises, primarily due to security, compliance, performance, control, and cost issues.
