19 Jun HPE Continues to Expand its Hybrid Cloud Strategy
Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) is continuing to expand its hybrid cloud portfolio with vast updates including enhanced automation, workload-optimized solutions, and a consistent experience across clouds.
These updates include extending AI-driven operations and composability across its portfolio, adding new workload-optimized infrastructure, and expanding choice of clouds through new partnerships with Google Cloud and Equinix.
“HPE has been at the forefront of this new data paradigm,” said Phil Davis, president of hybrid IT and chief sales officer, HPE. “To scale and grow without bounds, HPE provides the hybrid cloud path for customers with advanced analytics and machine learning that removes the burden of managing infrastructure, enables digital transformation, and accelerates growth. Together, automation and composability can support business objectives, increase efficiency, and enable organizations to be more competitive.”
HPE introduced composable infrastructure three years ago and has achieved tremendous growth with its flagship HPE Synergy offering.
HPE composable infrastructure uniquely provides a consistent operating model for virtualized, containerized, and bare-metal applications, to enable customers to compose fluid pools of compute, storage and networking with their choice of software stacks. C
HPE is extending its composable strategy to enable IT organizations to transform existing HPE ProLiant DL 360/380/560 Gen10 rack-based servers into composable infrastructure to deliver automated deployment, scale, and management for any workload.
HPE’s enhanced Composable Cloud solution, built on HPE OneView IT infrastructure management and HPE Composable Fabric networking solution, will enable existing and new HPE ProLiant DL customers to quickly deploy and scale workloads across a composable rack environment, and support their choice of cloud, virtualization, or container stacks. This allows customers to protect their investment in their infrastructure platforms.
In addition to providing customers the ability to deploy their choice of HPE physical storage or VMware vSAN software-defined storage, HPE’s composable portfolio now supports HPE SimpliVity hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI).
For organizations with demanding applications, such as business-critical database and data warehouse applications, HPE is introducing HPE Nimble Storage dHCI, a disaggregated hyperconverged infrastructure (dHCI) platform that brings the simplicity of hyperconverged with the flexibility of a converged system.
As part of an ongoing collaboration between HPE and Equinix, customers using Equinix data center facilities who are seeking cloud-based test and development, backup and recovery, or disaster recovery capabilities, will be able to transact in the Equinix Marketplace to get Data as a Service based on HPE Cloud Volumes.
HPE Cloud Volumes will be available over high-speed connectivity to compute in Equinix data centers.
HPE and Google Cloud have expanded their strategic partnership to provide customers with hybrid cloud solutions.
