HPE begins pushing new hybrid offering

By

HPE has begun the process of pushing the offerings that it announced in June at its annual Discover 2017 conference: expanded capabilities for HPE Synergy and HPE OneView, plus availability of the HPE SimpliVity 380 hyperconverged appliance.

Raj Thakur, general manager, Data Centre and Hybrid Cloud Group, HPE South Pacific (below, right), and Brett Lobwein, Category Management Leader, Data Centre Hybrid Cloud, told iTWire this morning that their composable infrastructure offering was the lone one in the market.

In June, HPE announced that it would be introducing new levels of security in its ProLiant line of servers, adding silicon-based security to prevent against firmware attacks.

It also said it had made advancements in software-defined infrastructure in order to provide new levels of agility and economic flexibility.

HPE's hybrid offering includes hyperconverged integrated systems, where infrastructure and advanced data services are combined for virtualised workloads.

And the third element is a hybrid IT management platform that enables customers to develop and deploy applications quickly and optimise their right mix of on- and off-premises resources.

Thakur and Lobwein said that HPE would be taking into account the introduction of data breach laws on 22 February next year when they crafted the offerings they made to local customers.

While HPE has not yet examined the laws in detail, they said that a thorough examination was on the cards as they did not want any customer to fall afoul of the law. Any business that has a turnover of more than $3 million and all government agencies are subject to the provisions of the law.

The two HPE officials said one of the main advantages of the HPE offering was that a customer could purchase exactly what they needed. All the components - computing power, memory and storage - were easily scalable.

They said it did not matter what kind of cloud infrastructure the customer wanted - private, public or hybrid - as HPE catered to all of them. All offerings used the open-source cloud platform OpenStack.

HPE's composable infrastructure is available and shipping now. Azure Stack is available for order across all regions with orders expected to be filled in September, they said.
