HPE buys Zerto, specialists in data management and security

Zerto, specialists in disaster recovery, back-up and data mobility, provides solutions for on-premise, hybrid and multi-cloud environments. Zerto makes an attractive addition to its infrastructure solutions for HPE given that data management and data protection are key requirements within infrastructure strategies for businesses, while remaining a complex aspect in hybrid and multi-cloud environments. Zerto will be available 'as a Service' through HPE GreenLake and Data Services Cloud Console. Read the press release here.

HPE Alletra

HPE launches Alletra, their Storage-as-a-Service platform 

HPE has a vision to become an edge-to-cloud, Platform-as-a-Service business. They are already giving this ambition shape in the form of Alletra, their new storage family. The new platform was designed for the massive data volumes generated from the edge to the cloud. It breaks up data silos and reduces the complexity of data environments, while flexibility and innovation capabilities are increased. Finally, the platform helps to reduce business risks.

The new data service platform is available through HPE GreenLake and consists of three innovations to simplify data processes from the edge to the cloud::

  • Data Services Cloud Console. The cloud console delivers operational flexibility for the cloud and unified data operations – supplied 'as a Service'.
  • Cloud data services. A suite of software services that dramatically simplify and automate worldwide infrastructure management on a large scale.
  • HPE Alletra. A new, cloud-native data infrastructure portfolio to use data from the edge to the cloud.

Where is Alletra positioned in the current HPE portfolio?

Expected Microsoft CSP price increase from 1 August 2021

Microsoft has made significant investments in Microsoft Endpoint Manager and Microsoft Enterprise Mobility + Security (EMS) over the past 18 months. As a result, Microsoft is now announcing price increases for the standalone products EMS E3 and Intune. The price for Microsoft 365 E3 remains unchanged.

 

Price increases and long lead times from our partners

Due to the severe shortage of chips and raw materials, the lead times for the supply of notebooks and peripherals, network and data center materials currently stand at 4 to 5 months. We are now expecting our partners to increase their prices too. We are monitoring developments closely and are in constant contact with our suppliers to ensure the fastest possible delivery. We will also work with you to explore alternative solutions. Feel free to contact us at info@inetum-realdolmen.world if you have any questions or concerns.

Google Chrome solutions now part of our offering thanks to our partnership with Fourcast for Education

Inetum-Realdolmen has announced a new partnership with Fourcast for Education. This will allow us to expand our range of solutions to support schools and colleges, school groups and educational services with the government Digisprong initiative. The Google Chrome solutions now form an integral part of our portfolio.  

Google Chrome met Fourcast for Education

Fourcast for Education is currently the only Google Specialized Partner EDUCATION throughout the Benelux region. Our partnership means educational establishments can now come to us for Chrome-related solutions. This not only applies to hardware and software, but also to train teachers and ICT coordinators in how to get the best out of the technology through a range of support formulas.
