Hewlett Packard Enterprise announces a new hybrid infrastructure

Hewlett Packard Enterprise announces a new hybrid infrastructure 

Hewlett Packard Enterprise developed this pioneering new architecture by leveraging fluid resource pools, software defined intelligence and a unified API to provide the foundation for organisations to continually optimise the right mix of traditional and private cloud resources.

Many companies today are faced with the mandate of delivering new applications and services at a rapid pace, and embracing new business models while entering new markets.  A significant portion of this pressure to deliver rests on the IT department, which must unearth more efficiencies and cost savings out of the traditional systems and applications and at the same time provide the groundwork for the speedy creation and delivery of new services through the use of mobile, big data and cloud native technologies.

“In order to respond to the demands of the business, CIOs and IT executives need to deliver services that are increasingly application centric,” said Jed Scaramella, Research Director, IDC.  “To remain relevant, IT needs to not only provide a reliable and cost-effective infrastructure that can support their legacy investments, but one that gives them the flexibility and speed to deliver services like a cloud provider.”

To support these two very different operating models requires rethinking the way IT infrastructure is built. HPE Synergy addresses this challenge by leveraging a new architecture called Composable infrastructure. This new infrastructure consists of three key designs namely:

1. Fluid Resource Pools
a. Compute, storage and fabric networking that can be composed and recomposed to the exact need of the application
b. Boots up ready to deploy workloads
c. Supports all workloads – Physical, Virtual and Containerized

2. Software Defined Intelligence
a. Self-discovers and self-assembles the infrastructure you need
b. Repeatable, frictionless updates

3. A Unified API 
a. Single line of code to abstract every element of infrastructure
b. 100% infrastructure programmability
c. Bare-metal interface for Infrastructure as a Service

“Market data clearly shows that a hybrid combination of traditional IT and private clouds will dominate the market over the next five years,” said Antonio Neri, Executive Vice President and General Manager of the Enterprise Group at Hewlett Packard Enterprise. “Organizations are looking to capitalize on the speed and agility of the cloud but want the reliability and security of running business critical applications in their own datacenters. With HPE Synergy, IT can deliver infrastructure as code and give businesses a cloud experience in their datacenter.”

This new infrastructure brings together compute, storage and networking fabric, through a single interface that composes physical and virtual resources into any configuration for any application. This platform can extend to cover a broad range of applications and is ideal for customers looking to deploy a scalable hybrid cloud environment and enable continuous DevOps.


HPE Synergy also helps with the reduction of overprovisioning by as much as 60 per cent and provides software defined templates and bootable images so IT can deliver infrastructure at cloud-like speed. It also has a powerful unified API with a growing list of partners like Arista, Capgemini, Chef, Docker, Microsoft, NVIDIA and VMware.

HPE Synergy is expected to launch in the second quarter of 2016 from Hewlett Packard Enterprise and its worldwide channel partners. Pricing information will be available at the time of the launch.
