Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has announced the launch of their composable platform for VMware Cloud Foundation, based on HPE Synergy. This solution would enable IT organizations to simplify their transformation to a hybrid IT infrastructure, deploy Infrastructure-as–a-Service (IaaS) and private clouds in minutes and lower virtual machine (VM) costs compared to public clouds and traditional server racks.
“In today’s competitive digital world, enterprises need technology that enables them to quickly introduce and scale new services,” said Ric Lewis, senior vice president and general manager, Software-Defined and Cloud Group, HPE. “HPE Synergy with VMware Cloud Foundation will deliver a private cloud experience that empowers IT to be an internal service provider and enables rapid response to business needs with single-click DevOps delivery.”
The combination of HPE Synergy with VMware Cloud Foundation would enable customers to:
- Operate a single platform to run traditional bare metal, virtualized SAN-based environments and new vSAN-based workloads – HPE Synergy would provide a single infrastructure for IT to dynamically compose their right mix of virtual, traditional and VMware Cloud Foundation, increasing business agility and resource utilization.
- Become an internal service provider of IaaS and private clouds – Using HPE Synergy Image Streamer, IT would be enabled to deploy infrastructure and VMware Cloud Foundation software in minutes with a few simple clicks, to respond quickly to line of business and accelerate customers’ DevOps initiatives.
- Perform at cloud speed – HPE Synergy would offer a fast platform for VMware environments.
- Reduce CapEx and OpEx while increasing productivity – HPE Synergy is based on composable infrastructure. This would deliver VMs at significantly lower cost compared to traditional architectures and public clouds. In addition, users would be enabled to increase IT administrator productivity and the number of IT devices managed by a single administrator.
“HPE Synergy powered by VMware Cloud Foundation will provide a powerful solution to consolidate traditional, private and cloud native workloads onto a single integrated infrastructure platform that is simple to deploy and operate,” said John Gilmartin, vice president and general manager, Integrated Systems Business Unit, VMware. “Customers will benefit from a highly dynamic, programmable infrastructure foundation that eliminates the operational overhead of traditional deployments thanks to new built-in lifecycle automation capabilities. We are excited about the value that HPE Synergy powered by Cloud Foundation will unlock to our mutual customers.”
