By Steven Fleischman 

What promised to be an exciting  Citrix Synergy event was made even more so by the announcement that HPE is extending their partnership with Citrix by collaborating on a HPE SimpliVity solution portfolio integration, including the new HPE SimpliVity 380 with Microsoft Hyper-V, into the Citrix HCI Workspace Appliance Program.

The appliance program makes it easy to deliver new workplace solutions and be managed seamlessly with Citrix over the lifecycle. This represents yet another example of how HPE and Citrix are working together to set the standard for customers to easily deploy digital workspaces with multi hypervisor, multi-cloud flexibility resulting in world-class digital collaboration and a borderless, productive workplace. 

Concurrently, HPE also announced the new HPE SimpliVity 380 with Microsoft Hyper-V. Both offerings expand customer hypervisor options and simplify and enhance the ability to provide high-performance virtual applications and desktops, making it faster and easier to deliver secure digital workspaces in today’s hybrid cloud world. Both also offer customers the following core benefits:   

  • Enables VM centric management and mobility – HPE SimpliVity hyperconvergence enables policy-based, VM-centric management abstracted from the underlying hardware to simplify day-to-day operations. Now Microsoft Hyper-V customers can achieve the same benefit.
  • Data protection – Customers now have access to a hyperconverged solution with full-featured, built-in backup and recovery at no additional cost.
  • Data efficiency – Efficiency is delivered by powerful built-in data services including in-line deduplication and compression and novel data architecture to speed business continuity and enable workload mobility. Customers enjoy dramatically reduced recovery point objectives (RPOs) and recovery time objectives (RTOs) - from days or hours to seconds. 

HPE SimpliVity 380 with support for Microsoft Hyper-V is immediately available from HPE and HPE global partners.
