HPE OneView: the best manager and on-ramp for composable infrastructure



By Brianne Richardson, Jr. Marketing Program Manager, HPE Converged Data Center Infrastructure

Brianne.jpgAt this summer’s Discover event, Tech pundit Jake Ludington met with Paul Miller, VP of Marketing for HPE, to highlight the advantages of composable infrastructure, HPE Synergy and HPE OneView. In their interview, Miller delves into the real value of the composable infrastructure and discusses how the HPE OneView platform best manages HPE Synergy, HPE’s first instantiation of composable infrastructure.

In the interview, Miller explains that the real value of composable infrastructure for users comes over an application’s whole life cycle. “Unfortunately, once infrastructure is provisioned, even though it can be over provisioned for example by 50 percent, most of it stays over provisioned forever until they actually shut the application down,” he explains. HPE’s Composable Infrastructure creates fluid pools of resources that compose and re-compose according to the needs of the application. This composable feature prevents unused infrastructure from becoming static.

As a management tool, HPE OneView allows users to provision HPE Synergy faster. As Miller explains, HPE OneView provides an on-ramp to the new composable technology by letting users deploy servers, compute and storage all as one with existing DL Servers, Blade Servers and 3Par Storage. With HPE OneView acting as an on-ramp to composable infrastructure, the need for a rip-and-replace implementation cycle is eliminated.

HPE OneView converged management platform also allows HPE Synergy— the first platform built from the ground up for Composable Infrastructure —and existing platforms to co-exist. This makes for an “easy migration,” says Miller.  

In addition, HPE is growing the Composable Infrastructure Partner Ecosystem through integrations with the unified API native in HPE OneView. HPE and its partners such as Docker, Chef, Ansible and Turbonomic have developed a robust set of integrations that cover key DevOps, cloud and operational use cases.

For instance, Docker and HPE are partnering to deliver a hybrid infrastructure solution. HPE’s Docker ready server program ensures HPE servers are bundled with Docker Engine and support. HPE Synergy comes ready for Docker deployment and with HPE OneView, users can “deploy Docker containers into HPE infrastructure simply and easily,” says Miller. 

Bottom line, moving to a composable infrastructure allows users to flex and adapt to changing business needs and prevents wasted infrastructure. HPE OneView is the best manager of HPE Synergy because it provisions this infrastructure faster by allowing users to deploy servers, compute and storage as one. It also allows HPE Synergy and existing platforms to co-exist, and gives users access to integrated solutions of partners in the HPE Composable Infrastructure Partner program.
