  1. Intelligent Edge

Today, the Intelligent Edge is offering a breakthrough in advancing how ‘Insight to Action’ platforms can be delivered. Industry leaders like HPE and SAP now make it possible to connect your “unconnected” enterprise assets, get access to data via sensors and persist the data right away at the Edge without sending it anywhere.  HPE is the market-leader in Converged Edge Systems. Edge as a Service (EaaS) makes it easy to create a flexible but straightforward IoT infrastructure that will meet the needs of your business today and tomorrow—including defining and deploying the right IoT solution with the right infrastructure, management, security, and support. HPE Edge-as-a-service is a consumption/utility model. Customers do not purchase the hardware or software. Customers pay a monthly fee to HPE to install, monitor/operate/manage and secure their IOT infrastructure. This helps customers focus on their organization’s core business rather than on the IT infrastructure.

  1. The Shift To Software Defined

As OEMs increasingly face the need to stay competitive in a fast-paced, consumer driven-world, the one-size-fits-all approach is no longer working. Trends such as virtualization, cloud computing, Big Data analytics, and mobility are quickly overwhelming IT teams and pushing many traditional IT infrastructures to their limits. Legacy IT architectures are often siloed and hardware-oriented, with each platform having its management environment, hypervisor, and storage. This limits the ability to unify, automate, and streamline IT delivery, as well as suffocates flexibility and scalability. HPE software-defined infrastructure helps organizations across diverse verticals and geographical locations solve their IT challenges and meet their business needs.


Benefits Include

Optimize IT operations with continuous delivery

  • Improve data center efficiency, accelerate development, and empower IT operations with programmatic, repeatable processes that enable timely release cycles.
  • Simplify operations and lower costs
  • Increase productivity, efficiency, and control across your data center by automating infrastructure operations through a unified API and software-defined processes.

  • Continuously build, test, and deploy applications through a single interface that allows you to precisely compose infrastructure in minutes with a single line of code.


  1. From Storage To Flash

The third wave of the all-flash revolution

In a few years, we may well look back on 2018 as the year the hard disk era finally succumbed to rise of all-flash solid-state storage. With the costs of adopting these technologies falling and significant savings joining the long-held performance benefits, and as use cases in hybrid cloud and software-defined storage become ever-more compelling, the demand for all-flash will continue to grow and fuel digital transformation. Predictive all-flash storage from HPE is smart enough to eliminate issues before you even know they’re there. As part of this drive for faster, more responsive, agile and efficient IT systems that can keep pace with these high levels of data growth and app development, organizations are increasingly embracing hybrid cloud systems and software-defined storage. Both of which go hand-in-hand with all-flash storage solutions.

This trend will continue for some time, and as it does, we will see more enterprises adopt an all-flash mindset as they seek to transform their organizations for the data economy and set themselves up for future success.

Benefits Include

  • The first of these waves was driven by performance enhancements. Solid state drives (SSDs) were added to arrays to support workloads when all-flash was perceived as a more expensive medium, used initially to accelerate individual workloads for mission-critical applications – for example facilitating stock market trades in financial services firms.
  • The second of these waves was driven by economics. The total cost of operations (TCO) savings facilitated by all-flash arrays accelerated investment in SSDs, improving performance while keeping overall cost at hard disk drives (HDDs) levels.
