Hewlett Packard Enterprise is rolling out the Red Carpet for Service Providers


Guest blog by Gary Allen, SP Segment Marketing Manager

On November 19, at the DCD Stacking IT Conference in London, we are introducing new programs and services tailored to our Service Provider customers enabling them to accelerate their business growth and provide service offerings that win in today’s competitive marketplace.

The HPE Datacenter Care - Hyperscale service, provides a menu of uniquely designed, globally available, service offerings tailored to the way Service Providers operate at scale, and includes: choice of coverage, from warranty through Proactive, a personalized relationship, and direct access to the new HPE Hyperscale Center of Expertise, a special team of HPE experts focused on SPs; the HPE Spares Management Service, providing instant access to spare parts on premises, HPE owned, for quick replacement and increased uptime; the HPE Flexible Capacity is a “pay-as-you-grow” solution that enables service providers to scale up instantly to handle growth needs; and HPE Data Center - Operational Support Services specifically for remote monitoring and management, with the ability to support multi-vendor environments. Additionally, Flexible Financing from HPE Financial Services offers multiple ways for SPs to optimize infrastructure investments, including 0% financing on HPE servers.

In order to assist SP’s in lowering risk and grow new service revenue, HPE provides Service Provider Ready solutions that ensure key functionality, such as Multi- Tenancy, SP and end-user portals, lifecycle management, billing integration, and automation and orchestration – ready to run ‘as-a-Service’. Focused on key areas such as Object Storage based Cloud Storage and Helion OpenStack Compute solutions, they include reference architectures and business tools to speed deployment as well as start-up support from HPE Technology Services, in addition to complete design, migration, implementation, and management.

Also today, Vapor IO is announcing their Open Data Center Runtime Environment (DCRE). Open DRCE simplifies data center infrastructure communication, and exposes current generation interfaces to data center operators, system and devops administrators, helping to automate not just the workload, but the physical infrastructure itself. Open DCRE is being released as an open source alternative to proprietary interfaces and custom silicon. HPE is the only Tier 1 vendor with open infrastructure alternatives and Open DCRE is a great fit for our open strategy. You can learn more about Vapor iO and Open DCRE at vapor.io.

HPE is committed to helping our service providers grow their business footprint as well, with our HPE Partner Ready Program for Service Providers designed to help SP’s increase market share and boost revenue with an extended sales reach through our sales force and worldwide network of channel partners. Active promotion and HPE cloud catalog exposure, along with go-to-market support, drives leads, opportunities and growth for SPs.

How do we sum all this up? It’s easy… only HPE offers a full line of open infrastructure alternatives including Cloudline Servers, based on Open infrastructure specifications (OCP, WCS), ProLiant – the leading standards based server platform in the world, and Apollo – the leading Density Optimized standards based hyperscale platform. HPE is THE partner for Service Providers, with the right infrastructure, robust support and tailored programs and solutions that drive SP business growth!
