Convergence today, composability tomorrow


At HPE Discover earlier this month, the hottest topic was the announcement of HPE Synergy, the world’s first platform architected for Composable Infrastructure and built to bridge traditional and new IT with the agility, speed and continuous delivery needed for today’s applications. By allowing businesses to optimize DevOps with infrastructure as code, HPE Synergy delivers breakthrough time-to-market and deployment flexibility.

During the event, HPE Converged Data Center Infrastructure’s Manoj Nair, Vice President of Product Management, and Paul
Miller, Vice President of Marketing, met to discuss the HPE Synergy announcement, the reaction customers and partners were having to the news, and the new hyper-converged solution with partner, Microsoft.

“One of the big announcements at the show has been HPE Synergy. And since the announcement, the customer input has been overwhelming,” explains Miller. “What customers really like about the technology of HPE Synergy is that it is solving real business problems— practical problems in their data centers around delivering applications, delivering the infrastructure for applications at cloud-like speeds, being able to deal with over-provisioning in their data center, and just being able to make IT operations a lot simpler.”

Nair goes on to explain that HPE Synergy and Composable Infrastructure were a response to customers’ need to find a way to bridge their traditional IT with the new style of IT. “The general feeling was that there was a pent up demand for something different in IT. And with HPE Synergy, we listened. We are delivering a simpler IT management paradigm,” explains Nair. “It is a simple story, and it is resonating with our customers and partners alike.”

The HPE Composable Infrastructure Partner Program includes industry leaders like Chef, Docker, Ansible, VMware and now, Microsoft.

New Hyper-converged solution offers bridge to composability

Strengthening an already strong partnership between HPE and Microsoft, the new Hyper-Converged 250 for Microsoft, is an Azure-consistent cloud in a box that enables businesses to run their applications on-prem while leveraging the public cloud for services such as backup and disaster recovery. HPE Hyper-Converged systems, which are preconfigured with scalable compute and storage plus Microsoft software, provide a single platform that is easy to manage, highly available and require no additional specialists to deploy or maintain.

“This is what we talk about when we talk about hybrid infrastructure,” says Nair. “When customers say they want to make hybrid infrastructure easier, we are delivering on that with this new hyper-converged solution.”

Miller goes on to explain how the new hyper-converged solution fits into the overall composability picture. “It is one of our on-ramps to composability,” says Miller. “You can start with a hyper-converged solution and HPE OneView, and use it to transition to a Composable Infrastructure in the future.”
