Bibra Lake Networking Sundowner

Bibra Lake Networking Sundowner

Another successful evening for the fortnightly Networking Sundowner!

Even if i do say so myself!

No one really loves going into a room of strangers and telling them how great you are, or showing them the charm and charisma only reserved for a visit with Nana!

Its awkward and sometimes extremely overwhelming, but it’s a necessary evil in the modern business world because when we get down to it..its about your livelihood.

This space allows you to pitch your business and hear about your neighbours!

It puts a face to a name and business!

Here’s something i find interesting about our society and the psychology of a referral..

Say you need cleaner. You google some names or if your old school open up a yellow pages//business directory. You see the ads and names and phone numbers but who do you choose? How do you choose someone?

This happened to a friend of mine recently. She needed a vacate clean and wanted someone by the end of the week who was reliable, clean and efficient. Of course she reached out to her friends but none could recommend anyone.

So.. we suggested going onto ‘the bookface’ and asking someone in a local buy nothing group in her area.

So she asked the question to this community. A Community of strangers (basically) who happened to live in her area.

6 People. 6 complete strangers commented on this post and recommended people they had used in the past. And on THOSE recommendations my friend selected someone to clean her house.

Its so simple. And that’s why networking is awesome. Because you aren’t just talking to 1 person. The ‘reach’ you may have extends to that persons contacts- friends, family, colleagues, clients AND just like my friend’s case, you could help a stranger make a connection they wouldn’t have otherwise had!

 

A big thanks to all that attended last night (Kirsten, Phil, Tanya, Mike, Reece, Andrew, Greg, Steve and Lisa)

5 IT strategies for increasing enterprise speed and agility

5 IT strategies for increasing enterprise speed and agility

In order to compete more effectively, businesses in every industry are transforming their IT strategy and resources to be as fast and agile as possible

Speed-and-Agility-in-the-Datacenter-HPE.jpg

Athletes understand speed and agility training is vital for becoming the best they can be. It increases performance by strengthening muscles and improving coordination – giving them a competitive edge.

The same concept holds true for IT resources. In order to compete more effectively, businesses in every industry are transforming their IT strategy and resources to be as fast and agile as possible. Successful enterprises are achieving the best results possible in their digital transformation by following the five strategies explained below.

5 important strategies to ensure IT speed and agility

1. Discover hybrid cloud

To provide the most agility and cost savings possible, enterprises are choosing a hybrid cloud strategy — combining public cloud resources off premises with private cloud on or off premises. A hybrid cloud strategy enables a business to choose the deployment method that works best for every workload, delivering timely, cost-effective, and secure resources.

2. Embrace software-defined

Software-defined infrastructure consists of fully virtualized compute, networking, and storage resources managed as if they were software. This model saves time and makes deployment and maintenance simpler for IT because IT resources are fully integrated and automated. Since software-defined infrastructure is not tied to specific hardware and can operate with little human intervention, businesses can make necessary changes faster.

3. Choose composability

Composable infrastructure is also important for enterprises that want speed and agility because it allows data center resources to be readily available as cloud services. With composable infrastructure, compute, storage, and networking resources are abstracted from their physical locations and can be managed by software through a web-based interface. This capability makes data center resources as readily available as cloud services, which means composability is an ideal foundation for private and hybrid cloud solutions.

4. Take advantage of “pay-as-you-use” options

Enterprises across all verticals — from manufacturing to retail to healthcare — are leveraging IT pay-for-use options to gain flexibility, increase control, and lower their total cost of ownership. Today’s as-a-service offerings deliver on-demand capacity and planning, combining the agility and economics of public cloud with the security and performance of on-premises IT.

5. Insist on infrastructure management simplicity

Streamlining the IT infrastructure management for an enterprise offers tangible benefits from the very first day it is implemented. Infrastructure management software eliminates complex manual processes and increases the speed and flexibility of IT service delivery by transforming servers, storage, and networking into software-defined infrastructure.

Speed and agility for the enterprise

Improving speed and agility is not only for athletes. Businesses worldwide are thriving due to a transformed data center – one that prioritizes speed and agility to compete more effectively.

HPE InfoSight for HPE SimpliVity Chalk Talk

HPE InfoSight for HPE SimpliVity Chalk Talk

HPE is delivering on our promise to bring InfoSight to our infrastructure portfolio. In this Chalk Talk, HPEStorageGuy Calvin Zito shares the news about InfoSight on HPE SimpliVity.

History of HPE SimpliVity

Prior to HPE’s acquisition, SimpliVity delivered hyperconverged infrastructure on a variety of industry-standard x86 platforms. These appliances were marketed as SimpliVity OmniCubes.

In 2017, Hewlett Packard Enterprise acquired SimpliVity and now offers HPE SimpliVity hyperconverged infrastructure – complete software-defined solutions that are designed, built and supported by HPE.

Key HPE SimpliVity innovations

Legacy IT infrastructure, composed of silos of compute, storage, network and data protection platforms, is not well suited for today’s workloads and on-demand applications. Since 2015, hyperconverged solutions have simplified the data centre by combining compute and storage into one software-defined platform; however, true hyperconvergence needs to do more. With the growth of virtualisation and increasing business demands, IT infrastructure is now comprised of a mind-boggling mix of components and applications for backup and deduplication, WAN optimisation, storage caching and more. These environments can be composed of a dozen hardware and software products from nearly as many vendors, with different management interfaces and training requirements.

HPE SimpliVity hyperconverged infrastructure combines the entire IT stack into a single hyperconverged node, providing the agility and economics of the cloud with enterprise-grade performance and data protection. The all-flash, scalable, pre-integrated building blocks support a variety of virtualised workloads and use cases, including data protection, data centre consolidation, Tier-1 applications, virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) and complete “data-centre-in-a-box” deployments at the edge.

HPE SimpliVity features and innovations include:

  • VM-centric management and mobility for guaranteed simplicity
  • Inline deduplication, compression and optimisation are applied to all data at inception, for increased efficiency and application performance.
  • Built-in data protection and resiliency features, including automation and orchestration tools to automate failover and failback for disaster recovery
  • The ability to cluster and federate systems into a shared resource pool that delivers high availability, mobility and efficient scaling of performance and capacity

To further boost performance and manageability, HPE SimpliVity solutions can be integrated with intelligent networking fabric, HPE Composable Fabric, which allocates bandwidth dynamically, based on application awareness and priority. HPE Composable Fabric technology automates network management operations with end-to-end visualisation of the network from a single user interface.
