Why AMD vSAN ReadyNodes_blog_shutterstock_306641441 (2).jpgIt is a challenge to support application needs for performance and service levels while providing more cost‑effective  capabilities, like high availability (HA) features that keep your data protected. HPE ProLiant DL325 Gen10 and HPE ProLiant DL385 Gen10 all-flash VMware vSAN ReadyNodes® are hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) solutions that come in modular infrastructure building blocks for a fast, simple, and efficient way to deploy software-defined workloads. They support your highly demanding application needs with a flash‑based, software-defined solution.

With an optimized HPE all-flash VMware vSAN™ solution you benefit from:

  • A virtualized storage environment—VMware vSAN— built into the system; no external SAN is required. All storage resources are pooled, allocated to users as needed, and then returned.
  • Low-cost, high-performance HCI solutions powered by VMware vSAN. The natively integrated software solution combines enterprise-class vSAN storage with the industry‑standard VMware vSphere® Hypervisor and VMware vCenter Server®, a unified virtualization management solution for today’s modern data centers.
  • Enhanced business productivity from the increased performance and responsiveness of in-server, all-flash capabilities.
  • Faster application response, contributing to timely decisions that lead to better business outcomes.

Gen10 innovations in infrastructure security

Your servers should be armed with the latest innovations to safeguard against and recover from cyberattacks. HPE is the only vendor that offers industry-standard servers with security protection built in to support the platform across the entire server lifecycle. Our unique Silicon Root of Trust provides unsurpassed protection by creating a digital fingerprint in the silicon that ensures the server will never boot with compromised firmware. With the HPE Secure Compute Lifecycle, you also have a new security foundation to protect against malicious threats that target server firmware, resulting in denial of service and data loss. And with the optional HPE iLO Advanced Premium Security Edition, the server’s firmware is checked every 24 hours to verify code validity and the of credibility of essential system firmware.

Additional protection is available to ensure your servers are not physically altered or have had unauthorized access. The Trusted Platform Module (TPM) eliminates unauthorized access to the server and stores artifacts used to authenticate server platforms; the Intrusion Detection Kit logs and alerts when the server hood is removed.
