Hear what industry leaders are saying about the new Composable Infrastructure partner program


If applications are driving the new digital economy, who is driving the underlying infrastructure?


Developers would like to treat infrastructure as code, but how is that possible in a technology infrastructure built around multiple infrastructure islands, tools and application-specific resources.  Today, HP unveiled its vision of a Composable Infrastructure.  This new class of infrastructure will be built on fluid pools of compute, storage and fast flexible fabric, disaggregated so they can be quickly composed, decomposed back into the pool and then re-composed in a software template to fit the specific needs of an application or workload that will run on it.  By essentially treating hardware infrastructure as code, developers and ISVs can now start to programmatically control a composable infrastructure and build out new workflows through HP’s Composable Infrastructure API (a single, open API) that is native in HP OneView.  Read more in this article around HP Executive Vice President & Chief Technology Officer, Martin Fink’s keynote at HP Discover Las Vegas. 


To get developers started, HP is launching the Composable Infrastructure partner program. This new program provides a complete set of tools to enable ISVs and developers to build out programmatic infrastructure.  We are particularly excited that this program already includes a set of industry leaders, including Ansible, Chef Software, Docker, Inc., Puppet Labs, and VMware. 


Here’s what these leaders have to say about the opportunity that Composable Infrastructure creates.


Ansible:  “Ansible is fast becoming the simple language of DevOps, bringing the benefits of automation to the entire IT organization - from developers to sys-admins. We are excited about HP’s vision of composable infrastructure, and look forward to working with HP to explore an integration of Ansible Tower with HP OneView to provide joint customers with more direct access to HP compute, storage and networking from their Ansible Playbooks.”
-- Tim Gerla, CTO, Ansible


Chef Software:  “As technology becomes part of the fabric of business, organizations need a way of managing their environments at scale.  By using the HP Composable API to connect Chef tools for automating large environments with the rich infrastructure templates in HP OneView, customers will be able to achieve scale quickly in their enterprise environments.”
-- Ken Cheney, VP of Business Development, Chef Software


Docker, Inc.:  “Enterprises are turning to containerized applications to accelerate their ability to bring new functionality to their customers.  As a founding member of the HP Composable Infrastructure partner program, Docker and HP will work together to enable the provisioning of Docker Machine directly on to bare metal HP infrastructure, providing our customers with greater flexibility in deployment options for their private clouds.”
-- Nick Stinemates, Head of Business Development, Docker, Inc.


Puppet Labs:  "IT is undergoing a massive change to support organizations that are under more pressure than ever to keep up with rapidly changing customer demands and competitive tension. We're excited to work with HP on its OneView initiative so we can continue helping enterprises around the world make this transformation a competitive advantage."
-- Nigel Kersten, CIO of Puppet Labs


VMware:  “As VMware customers embrace the new style of business, they are looking to use software-defined approaches to managing infrastructure to speed time to value. As a first step towards HP’s vision of a Composable Infrastructure, customers can use the integrations of VMware vRealize Operations Manager, and vRealize Log Insight with HP OneView today to streamline everyday tasks.”
-- Wayne Greene, Sr. Director, Product Management, MSBU


By delivering the first phase of Project Synergy today, it enables ISVs and developers to build programmable control of infrastructure that enable faster new services and application delivery. Click to learn more about these partners and others like Schneider Electric, Microsoft, and HP’s own software that is already integrated with HP OneView. And if you’re a developer, take a look at the that are waiting for you today – with more on the way.  We are ready to work with you to get ready for the new style of business.
