Make the most of your HP Storage solutions
Brochure | HP Storage training
Many customers enjoy the simplicity, agility, and value of
their HP Storage solution. However, most do not come close
to using it to its full potential simply because they are
unaware of how to employ all the powerful tools that are part
of their robust storage solution. This is where HP Education
Services help.
Today’s enterprises face ever-increasing challenges and choices in their storage requirements.
They need to store unprecedented amounts of information, decide how and where to store it,
and make certain the data is highly available and well managed.
HP can show you how to make the most of the proven HP Storage solution and employ it as a
tangible competitive advantage with the help of our extensive Storage training curriculum.
Why HP Storage solutions?
HP Storage solutions employ a standards-based, modular design to simplify storage
management, and enable rapid search and retrieval of information. This reduces IT costs
and complexity, increases worker productivity, and provides users with quick access to data.
HP Storage is a flexible, adaptive storage infrastructure that is highly resilient to enable
enhanced data protection. As a result, users can confidently adapt to business needs in real
time, and drive IT change to create a competitive advantage.
HP Storage solutions offer users investment protection and great value. Real-time scalability
enables users to meet the demand for more storage performance, capacity, and capability
while making efficient use of their IT resources and proactively managing data throughout
its lifecycle.

HP Education Services will enable you to improve your ROI in HP Storage technologies.
Proper training will shorten your time to implementation and improve productivity once
the systems are in place.
In fact, training from HP will actually cost you less than informal training. Using your own
experts to train less knowledgeable IT staff may seem “free” at first glance, but in reality you
are just tying up the time of two valuable team members. With HP Education Services, only
the people in need of training are involved, leaving your most experienced and valuable staff
members free to focus on their duties.

delivery, and innovation.
