Don't get buried under big data

Big Data is big opportunity – the ability to spot market trends, capitalize on business prospects and to target your product better than ever before. But it also means big headaches.

If your legacy architecture is complex and has limited scalability, then chances are you're not only unable to harness the power of corporate information, but struggling even to store it.

In short – you risk getting buried under big data.

Consider this: most unified and monolithic storage deployed today was built for the needs of 20 years ago. While those original storage systems have been upgraded over the years with bolt-on features, the fundamental truth is they were designed for a different age and this gap is revealing itself as a complete systemic failure.

HP is leading the way in creating storage for the new era with HP Converged Storage, a modern design approach built from the ground up for the needs of virtualization, cloud, and massive content pools.

And HP Financial Services offers innovative financing programs to help bring you into this new era of storage. Here's how:

  • Converged Storage Financing – lease your HP Storage solution and upgrade frequently as your needs increase – as frequently as every 3 months.
  • Technology refresh – leasing has a built-in refresh cycle so you're never saddled with outdated technology
  • Avoid large up-front payment – Avoid a large up-front payment, which often eases the approval process and makes it easier to acquire the solution you need when you need it

With innovative financing solutions from HP Financial Services, you can stay on top of your big data – not get buried underneath it.

Let one of our financial experts work with you to make big data work for you.
