HP Branch Office Consolidation
Solutions for midsize businesses
Cut costs, lower risks, and enhance productivity
Solution guide
Stay competitive in a dynamic business
environment
No matter what the global business climate,
businesses are always looking to stay competitive.
The recommended route towards gaining a
competitive advantage is to improve the business cost
structure and enhance organizational efficiency. Many
organizations choose to consolidate branch offices
to cut capital and operational expenses and focus on
increasing productivity of frontline employees at these
offices. What’s more, as more employees take on the
responsibility of generating revenue and customer
relationships start to depend on a consolidated
IT infrastructure, reducing business disruption
becomes crucial.
How can your business cut costs, lower risk of
disruption, and enhance business productivity?
It’s simple. Implement branch office consolidation
solutions that integrate your technology infrastructure,
protect business-critical data, and empower your
employees to work smarter.
HP Branch Office Consolidation
Solutions for your business
HP Branch Office Consolidation Solutions for
midsize businesses have been designed to address
your specific business needs. At HP, we understand
that for a small or midsize business, IT efficiency
is critical. But so is delivering more business value.
Additionally, you have to factor in realities like
data growth and complexity, business disruptions,
communication breakdowns, increased competition,
consolidation, and acquisitions. With so much going
on and resources so stretched, it can be difficult to
tackle challenges both efficiently and strategically.
Regardless of what your business challenges are, one
imperative trumps them all: Do more with less.
Fortunately, it also echoes a revolution taking place
right now. Virtualization, cloud-based software and
services, and the convergence of new and existing
technologies are making it possible for us to get
more done with fewer resources. Costly IT silos are
being transformed into end-to-end infrastructures that
integrate technical components, automate processes,
and simplify technology from purchase to retirement.
At HP, we call this a “Converged Infrastructure.”
It’s all about delivering modular, standards-based
technologies designed for convergence. The result
is an infrastructure that simplifies, integrates, and
2
automates it all: storage, networking, servers,
management software, even power and cooling. And
the efficiency gains allow you to shift the bulk of your
IT budget from operations to business innovations.
The components of an HP Converged Infrastructure
deliver the value you need today by positioning you
to manage, protect, and grow your business through
each pain point and milestone.
It’s the future of IT—available today for your
business. HP is a recognized leader of the IT
convergence movement. With the world’s largest
technology portfolio, we have the building blocks
and the resources to pull it all together to provide

Solution (Refer: Figure 1 A)
Typical challenges
•IT personnel: In case of IT problems that need
immediate attention, there is no local support or
onsite IT assistance at the branch offices. This affects
productivity and customer service.
•WAN speed: Slow access to the head offices’ file
shares affect productivity. Employees face login
problems intermittently. Lack of WAN security is also
a concern.
•Data growth: Inefficiencies associated with data,
file, and application access create complexities with
availability, utilization, and management.
•Data protection: Data growth, coupled with manual,
error-prone backup and recovery processes put

•Data backup: Due to the lack of consistent backup
processes, employees tend to keep important files
on their PCs rather than the server. These files are
easily forgotten and never get a backup, posing a
risk to the business.
•Printing: The shared printers connected to individual
PCs slow down the printing process when the PC
is in use. Repeated printer reboots are needed to
clear print queues, disrupting work and affecting
productivity.
•PC support: Client desktops and laptops need
frequent upgrades. These machines are a mix of
ages, brands, and operating systems.
•Network: Poor physical network implementation with
multiple low-end hubs/switches cascaded around
and cables running under desks.
•Guest wireless: Lack of a secure method to provide
visiting customers/partners Internet access without
sharing the private WEP key, make the network
vulnerable to threats.

Scenario 2
A midsize consolidated branch office supporting
25–50 employees.
The branch office needs consolidation to lower IT
management costs, reduce risk of disruption, and
protect valuable data. (Refer: Figure 2 A)
Typical challenges
•IT personnel: In case of IT problems that need
immediate attention, there is no local support or
onsite IT assistance at the branch offices. This affects
productivity and customer service.
•Backup and archival: The branch office faces
frequent backup failures, and has no offsite copy of
the backups in case of a disaster.
•File restores: Single file recovery is frequently
requested by users, but is often not possible due to
backup failures. This means completed work has to
be redone or recreated.
•Storage growth: Unstructured and unpredictable
data growth is putting undue stress on the storage
infrastructure, making it expensive to maintain,
inflexible, and difficult to manage and optimize.
•IT expenses: IT staff has to often make after-hours,
across-town visits for server maintenance and deal
with backup/restore issues. A lot of time is spent
in managing disk space and identifying files for
archival. The IT team finds it difficult to do server
management, because by the time they are notified
about a problem, it is already an emergency.
They also have to deal with users complaining of
slow network speeds, despite pushing the 100 MB
network to its limits.
•Complexity of a distributed network: The lack of
simple remote management increases network
problems and demand for onsite services.

standardizing the security policy across branches.
(Refer: Figure 3 A)
Typical challenges
•Server sprawl: New sites have many brands/models
of servers with different levels of manageability and
asset control.
•Storage growth: All sites are struggling with
increasing storage complexities. These issues
extend to file share, database, and mailbox storage
requirements.
12
•Data recovery: Each site has a different data
recovery process that varies in complexity and
robustness. This has introduced inefficiencies and
unnecessary management overheads.
•Network security: There are different networking,
firewall, and security solutions at each location. This
makes it difficult to manage company-wide security
policies and increases the risk of security breaches.
