Transform with Hybrid IT- An Insight From HPE Discover 2017

In an always-connected world, critical application failures can cost your business its future. Unplanned downtime and data loss can originate from many sources, including natural disasters, network or power outages, human error, or malicious acts. Additional risk comes from costly, inflexible legacy infrastructure with inadequate data protection and disaster recovery models. A hybrid IT approach helps you plan for the unexpected by providing mission-critical capabilities that empower you to reduce risk and ensure infrastructure availability.

Last month, a key focus area of HPE Discover 2017 was on Hybrid IT – how to find your right mix of public cloud, private cloud, and legacy technology and Intelligent Edge, the next generation of the Internet of Things that co-locates sensor, storage, and compute. One of the best features of HPE Discover is the ease with which customers share information about how they’re using our technologies to solve complex business problems. Last month’s Discover event in Vegas again highlighted this, featuring presentations from numerous customers including Deloitte on a roadmap to IoT returns. Here's a recap of top sessions that dug deep on the new opportunities around Hybrid IT compute experience powered by the world's most secure industry-standard servers and most comprehensive all-flash storage portfolio.

The General Session- Meg Whitman’s introduction

The General Session is the typically a good place to start when looking for the overall themes—this year, it mostly centered around simplifying Hybrid IT, the newly announced 10thgeneration of HPE’s ProLiant server portfolio, and a sneak-peek at “NewStack”, a compelling-sounding, managed hybrid-IT service. Given where HPE is and what enterprises are asking for, these were the right things to focus on. The company’s mid-term future banks on Synergy and NewStack, and IoT Edge is gravy, so it had to nail all three. Whitman emphasized HPE’s goal of making Hybrid IT simple, with HPE Synergy—the companies (and world’s) first and only composable infrastructure option which was rolled out earlier this year.

HPE Raises the Infrastructure Security Bar with New Gen 10 Platform

The biggest trends at Discover 2017 was focused on the Gen10 announcement, partnerships, session schedules, and the various iterations of IoT.30+ key sessions, sharing 11 mainstage videos, putting the influencers in the spotlight and encouraging attendees to share their and keep the #HPEDiscover conversation lively. Susan Blocher, VP of Global Marketing Data Center for Hewlett Packard Enterprise’s Infrastructure Group, introduced the session, promising to peel back the layers on the new Gen10 line of ProLiant servers, and differentiate it from the other offerings on the market. Blocher said that when designing Gen10, HPE had three customer needs in mind:

  • the need for agility
  • the need for security
  • the need for economic control

Blocher reiterated multiple times HPE’s belief that the new Gen10 represents the world’s most secure industry standard server. This is certainly what enterprises are asking for as servers and namely server firmware are the new, cool attack point.
