Announcing HPE Synergy with HPE Helion CloudSystem 10



BrianBesand.jpgGuest post by Brian Besand - HPE Cloud Product Marketing Manager

This week is HPE’s big European event for customers and partners--HPE Discover London 2016--and my favorite part of any big event is the announcements. You can read all the news at, but the headliner is HPE Synergy with HPE Helion CloudSystem. In an industry first, businesses will be able to share and rapidly reallocate infrastructure between traditional applications and cloud services, bringing an unmatched level of agility and cost efficiency to hybrid IT solutions. For the first time, we’re sharing details about the unique capabilities of HPE Synergy with HPE Helion CloudSystem and announcing that HPE Synergy with HPE Helion CloudSystem is available to order now.

Share infrastructure between private cloud services and traditional applications

HPE Synergy with HPE Helion CloudSystem 10 is the first solution that allows you to run both private cloud services and traditional applications on shared infrastructure, resulting in a more agile and cost-effective solution for hybrid IT. Before Synergy, separate workloads would have required separate infrastructure--one set for private cloud, another for your HR application, and another for an ERP application, for example.


HPE Synergy is built on the industry’s first composable infrastructure that creates pools of compute, storage, and networking resources that can be configured in minutes to support a variety of workloads simultaneously, including traditional applications and cloud services from HPE Helion CloudSystem 10. As the needs of the business evolve, more resources can quickly be allotted to growing workloads, and obsolete workloads can add their resources back to the available pool.


Sharing infrastructure also cuts overall IT costs by minimizing over provisioning. Before Synergy, each workload would have required some percentage of extra resource capacity to provide for peak demand. Now with HPE Synergy with HPE Helion CloudSystem 10, multiple workloads can draw from the same shared resource pool, requiring less total excess capacity and therefore less overall infrastructure. Savings on IT infrastructure can then be redistributed back to IT innovation or other parts of the business.

Optimize performance by matching workload needs to infrastructure

HPE Synergy with HPE Helion CloudSystem also directly improves service performance by being the first of its kind to automatically provision cloud services on the infrastructure that best meets their needs. For example, a high-performance database will return data faster from solid-state drives versus traditional hard drives. Synergy automatically identifies new hardware capabilities and shares that information with CloudSystem’s OpenStack based private cloud. Admins and users can then specify what type of infrastructure certain types of services should run on, and Synergy will ensure that those services lands on that infrastructure. In fast paced industries, this edge in performance and speed equates to the ability to bring products to market faster and better respond to changes in the business.

Centralize and automate management

Operational costs are further lowered by automating and centralizing management functions through unparalleled integration of the software and hardware management layers. As new Synergy modules are added to your implementation, HPE OneView identifies their physical characteristics and provisions them based on established rules. Cloud admins can allocate and reallocate Synergy resources in minutes from a central console as the needs of the various workloads change.
