Introducing the Modular Datacenter
IT is often asked to “find a solution—fast.” Facilities can only build infrastructure as fast as construction timelines and approval processes will allow. HP PODs are modular, ultra-efficient “data centers in a box.” They streamline the deployment process to help companies rapidly expand their data capabilities. PODs enable you to do more with less.
When data centers run out of space and have reached the end of their upgrade path, HP's portfolio of Performance Optimized Datacenters (PODs) can expand data center capacity faster than traditional data centers with a much lower total cost of ownership. They are pre-configured and can be installed in days/weeks as opposed to the years it takes to install traditional data centers.
The bottom line is that more capacity is required to handle the explosive growth of data in the enterprise. The time and investment it takes to build that capacity through traditional brick and mortar data centers will most often result in data investments that are low value with high TCO solution.
PODs are cost effective and use a small footprint
- PODs can be deployed in days or weeks rather than months or years allowing the business to realize value in a fraction of the time it takes for traditional storage infrastructure.
- PODs have much simpler compliance requirements than traditional data centers because they may not require building permits or even added property investments.
- PODs are preconfigured to decrease the implementation burden on your IT team.
- Advancements in self-cooling have made PODs a much more energy efficient option than in years past.
If your organization faces these challenges, perhaps the time is right to consider a new approach—such as an ultra-efficient, cloud-ready converged system that delivers the on-demand capacity you need, while also saving you up to 50 percent in capital expense costs and many months of deployment time.Read the data sheet
