HPE Synergy and Ormuco: Accelerating delivery of an OpenStack hybrid cloud



PAV.jpgBy guest blogger, Patrick Verhoeven, Director Solution Development, HPE

HPE’s SP-ready solutions bring together HPE software-defined infrastructure solutions with third-party ISV software and partners - resulting in a proven, repeatable blueprint for service providers to unlock new revenue. Service providers gain differentiation, accelerate time to market, and mitigate risk. 

Ormuco is a leading cloud technology provider and a strategic partner for HPE. Its main offering, The Connected Cloud, is a hybrid cloud services platform based on open source technology with a robust catalogue of services for organizations, service providers and ISVs.

chat 1.jpgTogether with Ormuco, HPE offers service providers a turnkey private and/or public cloud solution that is designed, deployed, and operated by Ormuco in any data center, fully branded, and white labeled as the service provider’s own cloud solution.

The result? Customers gain a full set of price-competitive cloud features, including provisioning and management of compute, storage, and networking services. Based on flexible and open technology, the solution is backed by a 99.95% platform availability SLA.

Proven solution architecture

This hybrid cloud solution consists of four key elements:

  • HPE software-defined infrastructure: The solution is powered by HPE Synergy, the industry’s first composable infrastructure. Working with CloudGenera, HPE found that public cloud was 2-5 times more expensive over a 3-year period.
  • Ormuco cloud software stack: The Ormuco cloud stack provides a unique customer experience - all built on Ormuco’s integrated control plane and open technology standards, such as OpenStack and Docker. Learn more about Ormuco and how they can help solve the hybrid cloud challenge.
  • Service provider value-add services: Partners can develop and deliver incremental value-add services on top of the Ormuco stack, such as application/database management, business continuity, or security solutions. Learn how HPE partners like ALSO and Oi are winning with HPE and Ormuco.
  • Cloud28+ ecosystem: The SP’s own services portfolio can be promoted to customers or other partners through the Cloud28+ ecosystem, the largest cloud aggregator in the world, according to 451 Research. Learn more about Cloud28+ and how it radically simplifies app deployment for customers.

Because the HPE Ormuco solution leverages HPE Synergy composable infrastructure, open-source technology, and lean and automated operations, service providers can compete with hyper-scale public cloud pricing. Based on one service provider’s deployment, for example, the estimated cost per VM for the Ormuco solution is $40 per month for a 2CPU/4GB VM—and that includes hardware and colocation environment. This cost basis is 40-50% lower than Amazon AWS or Microsoft Azure pricing for a similar VM, giving the service provider enough room to set a competitive price point and achieve a good margin.

The HPE Ormuco solution benefits service providers in several ways:

  • Delivers differentiated cloud services with competitive pricing and a unique customer experience across both public and/or private cloud
  • Accelerates time to market with a solution that can be running in a data center three to six months from contract signing
  • Mitigates risk by leveraging HPE and Ormuco’s operational expertise and a proven blueprint for best-in-class infrastructure
  • Leverages joint go-to-market programs that extend SP reach and accelerate sales
