Hewlett Packard Enterprise has expanded its composable initiative, wherein it has added a new hybrid cloud offering and technology extensions to HPE hyper converged systems. The company is extending HPE Synergy’s fully programmable infrastructure to HPE’s multi-cloud platform and enhancing software to the HPE Hyper Converged 380, thereby enabling IT operators to deliver software-defined infrastructure to meet the customers’ businesses demand.
The new solutions announced include HPE Synergy with HPE Helion CloudSystem 10 and HPE Hyper Converged Operating Environment. HPE Synergy with HPE Helion CloudSystem 10 brings full composability across compute, storage and fabric to HPE’s OpenStack technology-based hybrid cloud platform to enable customers to run bare metal, virtualized, containerized and cloud-native applications on a single infrastructure and dynamically compose and recompose resources for unmatched agility and efficiency.
HPE Hyper Converged Operating Environment software update leverages composable technologies to deliver new capabilities to the HPE Hyper Converged 380, including new workspace controls that allow IT managers to compose and recompose virtualized resources for different lines of business, making it easier and more efficient for IT to act as an internal service provider to their organization.
Vikram K, Director, Datacenter and Hybrid Cloud, Hewlett Packard Enterprise India, said, “Customers’ business needs can change quite rapidly, and they need an infrastructure platform that can support that rapid change. With HPE Synergy, we delivered a new class of infrastructure providing the speed, efficiency and flexibility of the public cloud on-premises, so that IT can focus on being an internal service provider instead of maintaining infrastructure. Now, we are extending composable infrastructure to our cloud and hyper-converged offerings, making hybrid IT simple for customers.”
HPE Synergy with HPE Helion CloudSystem 10 gives organizations the ability to operate a single IT environment on-premise that supports both traditional applications and cloud-native applications. With HPE Helion CloudSystem 10, IT operators now have the ability to compose resources in minutes, making it easier for enterprises to migrate from traditional to hybrid IT. Through better management automation and improved infrastructure utilization customers can deliver more effective cloud services at lower cost.
“Most of our customers who have expressed interest to adopt HPE Synergy are those who need to break some of their larger monolithic applications in to micro services and launch multiple of these in a cloud environment. Media, communications, service provider, and banks are some of the key sectors which are expected to benefit from the offerings of this composable infrastructure,” added Vikram.
The HPE Hyper Converged Operating Environment software update introduces new composable management capabilities to the HPE Hyper Converged 380, HPE’s all-in-one software-defined virtualization solution. The enhancements enable IT operators to become an internal service provider to their organization’s different lines of business, delivering virtualized applications with cloud efficiency.
Meanwhile, HPE Synergy with HPE Helion CloudSystem 10 as well as update to the HPE Hyper Converged Operating Environment will be available in the first quarter of 2017.
