HP white paper - Business case: Choosing Blades to Lower IT Costs and Improve Agility - 2013
In today’s environment, IT professionals must build infrastructures with an eye toward the future. Initiatives such as virtualization, cloud computing, social networking and big data ensure that IT will remain under pressure to deliver more value — and more agility — without the benefits of unlimited budgets.
It is critical to spend wisely, maximize investments and choose solutions that reduce complexity, simplify scalability and automate many of the manual tasks involved in system deployments and upgrades.
For any new environment that is being built today or is being planned for the near-term future, blade systems offer significant improvements over traditional rack systems. The biggest advantage, as noted, is the opportunity to achieve savings in TCO, even if you are starting with just one server for your new environment.
As your deployment grows, your TCO savings continue to multiply with blades.
In addition, by partnering with HP on your blade server solution, you can take advantage of next-generation management tools such as HP Insight Management and HP Integrated Lifecycle Automation to provide a fully integrated solution that delivers dramatic improvements in manageability, scalability and business agility, as well as other intrinsic advantages such as reduced space requirements and footprint.

benefits of a ProLiant Gen8 BladeSystem solution from HP.
