Multi Cloud on Your Terms: HPE Helion CloudSystem 10 is Available Today


shashi_avatorsmall.pngGuest post by Shashi Mysore- Senior Director of Product Management, HPE Helion CloudSystem



At the HPE Global Partner Conference in Boston today, we announced that HPE Helion CloudSystem 10 will be available this week and ready to install in your enterprise data center. I talked about CloudSystem 10 in my last post here and the key benefits of a unified hardware and software solution- namely, streamlined management of heterogeneous resources and increased developer agility.  In this post, I’d like to take a look under the hood at some of the key components of CloudSystem and the new functionality that they bring.


What’s new in CloudSystem 10

  • New versions of HPE Helion OpenStack 3.0, HPE Helion Stackato 4.0, Cloud Service Automation 4.6, and Operations Orchestration 10.5
  • Tools for building apps and deploying across multiple clouds
  • Updated service design and marketplace portal capabilities
  • Improved management experience
  • Faster, simpler, and more flexible deployment and lifecycle management through integration with HPE Synergy and HPE OneView.
  • Expanded and more cost-effective choices of compute resources with HPE Linux KVM virtual environment

 Helion OpenStack 3.0 - UPDATED

Helion CloudSystem is designed to unify the management experience of your multiple cloud providers, as well as offer new Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) capabilities. Helion OpenStack is HPE’s highly configurable, enterprise-grade cloud platform integrated into CloudSystem. CloudSystem 10 will launch with Helion OpenStack 3.0, our latest release built on OpenStack Liberty, which is true to all OpenStack APIs.

  • Helion OpenStack 3.0 brings expanded configurability and deployment options, including more options for block and object storage, scalability improvements for larger resources deployments, and expanded hypervisor and bare metal support for traditional applications.
  • Administrators will appreciate tighter administrative control for their private cloud, including security improvements supporting PCI enablement, enhanced controls for workload live migration and resizing, and encrypted communications between internal and external APIs.

Helion Stackato 4.0 - NEW

Helion Stackato is HPE’s open platform for cloud-native apps based on Cloud Foundry. It replaces Helion Development Platform in the CloudSystem stack, and it increases control and visibility for IT while limiting speedbumps and barriers for developers. Helion Stackato offers similar functionality to Helion Development Platform while simplifying development and deployment in multi-cloud environments.

  • Administrators gain more support for common public and private cloud providers, a multi-cloud control plane, load-based auto scaling, centralized logging, application and platform health monitoring, and a number or other benefits designed to centralize and standardize service offerings.
  • Developers gain increased control over their own release cycle through self-service provisioning; automated CI/CD for build/test/deploy workflows; Docker support; and support for leading languages, tools, and data sources.

HPE software on HPE hardware

CloudSystem 10 continues our vision of a unified hardware and software solution for hybrid cloud through a spectrum of infrastructure options. Whatever the needs and preferences of your organization may be, there’s a CloudSystem that fits.

For smaller scale deployments, the Hyper Converged 380 offers rapid deployment with an instant-on wizard, enabling a user deployable hybrid cloud in as little as an afternoon. On the other end of the spectrum is the HPE ConvergedSystem 700, an enterprise-scale deployment offering the same hybrid capabilities and ease of management.

CloudSystem will also continue to support a number of HPE servers, BladeSystems, ConvergedSystems, and Hyper Converged systems to match existing investments and standardizations. And of course, if you have an existing CloudSystem deployment, there’s an upgrade and expansion path with CloudSystem 10.

Find your Right Mix with HPE

Each organization will have its own mix of traditional, private cloud, and public cloud, as well as preferences around providers, workstyles, and infrastructure. HPE Helion CloudSystem 10 offers you that flexibility while maintaining security and control.
