Hewlett- Packard Enterprise (HPE) is extending its composable infrastructure to cloud and hyper-converged offerings, making hybrid IT simple for customers.
The company used its Discover conference in London to unveil updates to its software-defined infrastructure and cloud portfolio that expands HPE Synergy benefits even further.
The new offerings include a software update for the HPE Hyper Converged 380 server and a new version of HPE Helion CloudSystem.
HPE Synergy with HPE Helion CloudSystem 10 allows organisations to operate a single IT environment on-premises, supporting both traditional applications and cloud-native applications.
By using HPE Helion CloudSystem 10, IT operators can compose resources in minutes, making it simpler for enterprises to migrate from traditional to hybrid IT.
The new version, which is due to be released in the first quarter of next year, will add integrated analytics and multi-tenant workspaces.
Additionally, the company’s Hyper Converged Operating Environment software update is aimed at using composable technologies to offer new capabilities to its Hyper Converged 380.
The update includes new workspace controls that are designed to facilitate the composing and recomposing of virtualised resources for different lines of business.
HPE Synergy has nearly 100 early access customers that have implemented it across several industries.
HPE software-defined datacenter and cloud senior vice president and general manager Ric Lewis 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 IT can focus on being an internal service provider instead of maintaining infrastructure.
“Now we’re extending composable infrastructure to our cloud and hyper-converged offerings, making hybrid IT simple for customers.”
The updates follow HPE’s recent demonstration of a proof-of-concept prototype for a new type of computing as part of a research project called The Machine.
