En Pointe holds Healthcare Expo technology seminar in Los Angeles
Recognizing the need Healthcare providers have for IT solutions that meet the new and growing demands of speed, efficiency, cost effectiveness, and regulatory compliance, En Pointe brought in the major players in the IT industry for a seminar and product show. Held Oct 28th at The Standard Hotel in downtown Los Angeles, attendees from area healthcare facilities listened to presentations by HP and VMware and browsed through the Product Faire. A great lunch was provided while people were able to network with En Pointe and manufacturer representatives. We heard a lot of very positive feedback, and many people expressed the need for more events like it, so stay tuned, we are planning more Healthcare Expos around the country in 2011.

HP Software - one of HP's best kept secrets
As noted in the "Did You Know" section below, HP Software is a big business - they are the 6th largest software company in the world - but we've found most people don't know a lot about the great solutions they offer. And, even fewer people know that En Pointe is authorized to sell HP SW throughout the country! Look for more news this year about how En Pointe is ramping up our efforts to provide the best solutions in the industry, including HP Software sponsored customer events around the country.

The Right Choice for Today's Infrastructure Needs

HP ProLiant Servers: Redefining Server Economics

In today's data centers, server consolidation and cost reduction are top-of-mind concerns. With tough economic conditions and rising IT operations costs, the status quo won't do. If you're in a data center environment, you need to work aggressively to stop server and storage sprawl, reduce energy expenditures, and make better use of your valuable floor space—while responding faster to changing business requirements. HP Converged Infrastructure solutions and services will help you meet these goals. They break down technology silos to bring all IT resources together into virtualized pools of assets that can beshared by many
applications and managed as a service. This architecture goes beyond the current virtualization of servers, storage systems, and network connections. It brings together management tools, policies, and processes so resources can be managed in a holistic, integrated manner. It also brings together power and cooling practices so systems and facilities work synergistically to extend the life of your data center.

The HP ProLiant server portfolio offers key building blocks for your converged infrastructure. It doubles the performance of previous server generations and adds a wide range of innovative features that help you gain more value out of every IT dollar. HP ProLiant servers deliver major advances in energy efficiency, virtualization, and best-in-class management. We combine these innovations with comprehensive financing programs and service offerings to redefine server economics.

Welcome to HP Networking

HP is changing the rules of networking by bringing next-generation technologies and proven deployment experience to customers demanding IT alignment to these new business priorities. Innovating across the infrastructure, HP will help networking break free from its historical walls, play a more integrated role, operate differently, and deliver far different economics.

Unlike other vendors, HP is the only company to offer a full portfolio of standards-based, integrated solutions and enterprise-class services developed specifically to address the complexities of the extended enterprise. As part of Converged Infrastructure, HP will help customers dramatically simplify their networks, deliver business services more flexibly, and aggressively contain costs to open up new opportunities for business growth and fulfill the promise of a unified, converged IT infrastructure.

Organizations can take actions today to realize these benefits with innovation from HP.

  • Drive a simpler and more secure networking infrastructure
    Simplify the infrastructure with fewer network elements, embedded security and intrusion prevention, and single-pane-of-glass management for consistent operations and policy enforcement.
  • Build a more flexible application-centric infrastructure to deliver better and faster time-to-service
    Networking is more than connectivity; it must enable delivery of business services more effectively across the entire extended enterprise. Organizations can build a high-performance, scalable and modular infrastructure that's flexible, ready to deliver a variety of services, fully orchestrated, and aligned with the rest of IT to meet diverse and evolving business needs.
  • Utilize open solutions, expect lower total-cost-of-ownership, and drive more innovation from IT budgets.
    Deploying a networking using open standards enables customers to more easily leverage best-in-breed solutions, leverage existing staff and consultant experience, and get more done with existing resources
