Over the last several months, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has introduced new some technologies and, of course, new terminology to go along with them. We now have terms like “Composable Infrastructure” and the “Virtual Vending Machine” to understand. Here’s a quick overview of what these trendy new terms mean:
This is HPE-speak for one of their newest products: Synergy. Recognized as the infrastructure of the future, Composable Infrastructure is designed to run traditional workloads as efficiently as possible, while accelerating value creation for a new breed of applications that leverage mobility, Big Data, and cloud-native technologies. This is a new approach to traditional architecture is built to allow the IT organization to work with the speed and flexibility of the cloud in their own data center.

Recently, HPE announced the new Hyper Converged 380. This is based on one of their most proven technologies, the ProLiant DL380 Gen9 platform; and it introduces the concept of a Virtual Vending Machine. The solution integrates compute, storage, and virtualization. It features simplified upgrades, increased uptime and service levels. The new software-defined intelligence layer provides advanced analytics and reduces the costs to start, scale, and protect. The HC380 puts you on a direct path to composability.

Zunesis, an IT solution partner headquartered in Denver, hosted their fifth annual Night of Miracles on Saturday night, November 12th. The event was held at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science and featured a range of speakers, including Habitat homeowner Ann Padilla-Parras, 9-time New York Times bestselling author Don Yaeger, and this year’s partner family who received the keys to their new home at the event.
Night of Miracles is an annual gala where the goal is to raise enough money to fund one home for a deserving Denver family. The tradition of Night of Miracles was started because Zunesis not only wanted to give back to their community through a partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver, but they also wanted to create an avenue for their valued IT partners in the community to give back as well. Thus, the primary source of funding for the event every year comes from corporate donations provided by Zunesis as well as their IT partners.
When asked about the event, Zunesis CEO, Steve Shaffer, commented, “It’s one of my favorite nights of the year. To see the look on our partner family’s face, the gratitude of the parents and the excitement of their children, when we hand them the keys to their new home is one of the most rewarding experiences. Habitat for Humanity is a fantastic organization, and we’re honored to partner with them.”
This year’s event was a huge success, raising beyond the amount required to build a Habitat home. All additional proceeds also go to Habitat and contribute to even more homes. Megan Shaffer, Marketing Manager at Zunesis, noted at the event, “In this one room, we have Zunesis employees, business partners, customers, and friends all coming together to achieve one goal: and that goal is to change a family’s life forever. It’s an honor to be a part of this.”
The bar is set high for Night of Miracles 2017, and Zunesis is eager to rise to the challenge.

Zunesis is pleased to announce that we are now able to provide Aruba Networks (an HPE Company) wireless equipment, software, and support service to our valued education (K-12, Higher Education, etc.) and government (state, local, districts, etc.) customers and prospects in Colorado!
The contract, Midwestern Higher Education Compact (MHEC), extends competitive discounts to our Colorado GovEd customers without the need of a time-consuming and exhaustive bid/RFP process, and brings the added benefit of working with an in-state small business, Zunesis, Inc.
According to Aruba and HPE sources, campus technology leaders are demanding that mobile devices enable protection of both their network and the data within the devices on campus. The trend of using mobile devices is ever growing. Educational institutions must rapidly accept the Internet of Things (IOT) within their technology solutions. The Aruba portfolio enables institutions to accommodate this trend while maintaining the security of data and networks.
With the influx of mobile and internet enabled devices on campuses, there is a huge need to enhance current networks and ensure network security. The capabilities that Aruba brings to the table are truly game-changing. Aruba’s approach allows organizations to securely connect mobile and IoT devices coming onto the network to existing infrastructure, delivering visibility and policy control.
Zunesis has also been awarded Aruba Silver partner status, which means that you can work with Zunesis with the confidence that we are providing best-in-class pre-sales engineering consulting, ongoing technology training internally, and keeping our customers up to date on what is new and developing…in addition to the important facet of providing the best pricing available to our customers.
Coupled with our existing Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) Platinum DataCenter Elite status and our existing NASPO ValuePoint indirect contract fulfillment vehicle for industry leading ProLiant server, storage (3PAR, StoreVirtual, StoreOnce, MSA), and wired networking solutions (along with related HPE services and software), and our existing MHEC contract vehicle for VMware’s suite of data center optimization software (and services), Zunesis can now provide a full end-to-end data center to end-point solution with popular contract vehicles to our Government and Education customers in Colorado.

Zunesis, a Denver-based IT solution provider, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Zunesis to its 2016 Next-Gen 250 list. The annual list recognizes standout IT solution providers who have successfully transformed their businesses to meet the demands of emerging technologies such as cloud computing, unified communications, virtualization, mobility, business analytics and business intelligence. These solution providers, all in business for fewer than 20 years, have adapted to an evolving marketplace with a notable penchant for bringing key technologies to their clients before they become mainstream.
The technology industry is constantly changing with new technologies hitting the market almost daily. At the same time, expectations for IT departments are higher than ever as IT no longer operates in a silo: it permeates every aspect of the business. This is where having a partner like Zunesis – who is ahead of emerging trends in spaces like the cloud, big data, mobility, and security, to name a few – creates a competitive advantage for IT departments who must provide increasing business value with fewer resources and an overwhelming multitude of options.
“It’s our job to be on top of what’s happening in the industry so that we can help our customers determine what solutions are best for their organizations,” said Michael Gosselin, CTO of Zunesis. “Our clients depend on us to help them navigate today’s technologies to put them on the best path for future success.”
“The solution providers on our Next-Gen 250 list are ahead of the curve when it comes to working with emerging technologies and building successful practice areas around them,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “These remarkably agile companies, both established enterprises and new ones, were among the first to architect innovative solutions to meet a brand new set of customer needs. We congratulate the honorees named to this exclusive list and look forward to seeing what other innovations they have in store.”
A sampling of the Next-Gen 250 list will be featured in the December issue of CRN and online at http://www.crn.com/next-gen250 and through the CRN Tech News Tablet App for iPad and Windows 8.
