Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has announced combined intelligence and composability offerings by integrating its artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning-driven HPE Primera storage platform with the composability in HPE Synergy and HPE Composable Rack. This combination allows customers to deliver services on an intelligent cloud platform, offering the flexibility to support any application and service level agreement (SLA) with cloud-like agility, extreme resiliency, and seamless scalability.
Additionally, expanding on the recent introduction of HPE Synergy support for VMware Cloud Foundation (VCF), HPE Composable Rack, the HPE composable rack-scale solution, now supports VCF for hybrid cloud deployments. This new offering provides cloud management services to run enterprise applications in both private and public environments with a resilient and operationally efficient approach.
Enterprises today want to accelerate everything – their apps, data, and innovation. This requires the ability to more efficiently manage traditional bare-metal and virtualization applications, while also supporting containerized applications and cloud stacks with software-driven automation, and a fluid pool of resources that they can flexibly custom fit to the specific needs of applications. And, as organizations transition from a software-defined data center to an autonomous one, IT teams need to put the insights gathered about the infrastructure and workloads into action to ensure an environment that is always-fast and always-on.
“Customers want more than table stakes software-driven automation, and only HPE offers the combination of software- and intelligence-driven automation in a composable solution, transforming on-premises infrastructure to be more cloudlike,” said Mat Mathews, VP and GM, Composable Networking, HPE. “And, as customers leverage VCF to provide integrated software-defined data center and cloud management services for their applications, it becomes critical to rely on an underlying platform that has matching characteristics. Only HPE’s intelligent and composable infrastructure delivers the automation and flexibility needed for today’s changing workload demands.”
With disaggregated compute, storage, and fabric, HPE composable infrastructure provides independent scaling of resources and on-demand provisioning to support any workload, and any SLA – all while delivering CapEx savings. Its software-defined automation improves IT efficiency and reduces OpEx costs, while its unified API allows developers to integrate infrastructure commands directly into development and deployment processes, as well as easily integrate with third-party applications and tools. Similarly, HPE Composable Rack provides disaggregated compute, storage and fabric resources in a rack form factor, supporting bare metal, containerization, virtualization, and private and hybrid clouds.
HPE Primera leverages the industry’s most advanced AI platform for operations, HPE InfoSight, to deliver significant breakthroughs – including 93% less time spent on managing storage, the ability to predict and prevent issues, and accelerate application performance. HPE Primera lets organizations innovate without compromise, with the resiliency and performance businesses need combined with the agility of the cloud.
HPE Synergy and HPE Composable Rack integration with HPE Primera; and support for VMware Cloud Foundation on HPE Composable Rack will be available in November 2019.
