IT organizations today must deal with exploding volumes of information including “big data” and manage their expansive infrastructure with conservative budgets – all under ever-tightening compliance requirements. Success is measured by ability to enable innovation with a focus on performance and availability, workloads delivering faster time-to-value and sustainable IT solutions for future demands and requirements such as cloud that are neither complex nor costly to adapt as business needs change.
Microsoft SQL Server 2012 built on HP Converged Infrastructure feature solutions which are purpose-built and jointly engineered to help you deliver mission critical confidence across data management workloads with a focus on:
- Data Availability –High availability solutions that enable failover in seconds, deliver reliable backup, and have a low TCO with full enterprise capabilities that are built into the solution, not provided as costly “add-ons”.
- Performance and Scale – Leading and predictable performance across server activity, including complex queries, data integration, and analysis. Choices of architectural models for both mission critical scale up as well as cost effective scale out requirements.
- Security—Inherently secure database software for reduced risk, built-in tools for compliance enablement and audits along with assured control data access across applications and environments.
- Any data, built-in -- Support for exploding volumes of complex data types and non-traditional data sources as first-class citizens; with simple support for varied platforms and heterogeneous environments.
