Big data is changing the way organizations operate. From cloud migrations to technology upgrades and the support and storage needed to accommodate them, businesses today need to reevaluate their current hardware and make the necessary updates to stay competitive.

Here’s why you should start with your servers:

  1. Windows Server 2008 end of support is approaching.

After January 14, 2020, customers still using Windows Server 2008 will no longer receive free support, security upgrades, or feature updates (visit Microsoft for the full announcement here). While users can still opt to move their legacy applications to the cloud, the process isn’t a seamless or smart choice for most.

You may be able to adopt cloud capabilities, but the system itself is still functioning on decade-old technology. With the speed of innovation today, a decade is a lifetime in technology terms.

  1. New benchmarks are being set and competitors are taking notice.

Hewlett Packard Enterprise recently released a line of HPE ProLiant Gen10 Servers with 2nd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors that are setting benchmark records in performance and efficiency — and not just for large enterprise models.

They have been recognized for their small business products as well as high-performance computing lines. Rest assured that your competitors will be searching for the best in processing speeds and innovation, and HPE is topping the charts with a full fleet of servers that are equipped with the ability to support advanced applications like artificial intelligence and machine learning for both processing and security that are unmatched.

  1. Security is at the top of the list.

Cloud environments may be expanding opportunities for business in big ways, but they are also creating new vulnerabilities across seemingly secure networks. With each system built on the silicon root of trust, HPE is extending its security leadership into the foundation of its servers, along with a plethora of other features including HPE Secure Encryption and HPE Integrated Lights Out (iLO).

Security is crucial in today’s digital marketplace, but old server setups are lacking the space and capabilities to properly protect your data. Upgrading your servers will give your business new processing power and the security your confidential information needs.

Don’t get stuck in the past. Move to a server solution that can bridge your on-premises infrastructure with the cloud ─ seamlessly ─ for a hybrid IT approach that is truly secure and future-ready.
