Overcoming IT infrastructure concerns with composable infrastructure




HPE20170126008_1600_0_72_RGB.jpgHPE OneView is the foundation of software-defined infrastructureIT organizations around the world are having concerns when it comes to managing their complex IT infrastructure. According to IDC, many IT organizations continue to be challenged with the excessive time needed for manually provisioning tasks such as firmware and BIOS updates. This only increases the chance for errors due to non automated processes. Need drives demand and different infrastructure vendors have started to offer more composable management options to address these infrastructure concerns.




Composable infrastructure

Traditional IT infrastructure consist of separate compute, storage, and networking resources. These resources typically have to be managed separately through manual process. And as the infrastructure becomes more complex, the IT management becomes complex, requiring a specialized set of skills to provision affectively. With composable infrastructure, compute, storage, and networking are treated as disaggregated resources and are combined into a fluid pools managed centrally. Composable infrastructure allows these resources to be managed and provisioned with a single line of code, eliminating the need to manually provision tasks and reducing the chance for human error.

HPE approach to composable infrastructure

Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) understands the need to eliminate infrastructure management complexity and manual errors and has introduced composable products that can help. HPE started with HPE Synergy, the industry’s first composable infrastructure. HPE Synergy provides a composable bladed infrastructure that powers any workload within a hybrid cloud environment. HPE has recently added a new composable platform called HPE Composable Cloud for Proliant DL, which is an open hybrid cloud platform enabled by composability that allows enterprises to deliver cloud speed, scale, and economics to innovate faster.

HPE OneView is the foundation of composability

When it comes to composable infrastructure, HPE OneView is the foundation for the software-defined infrastructure. HPE OneView is an Integrated IT management that transforms compute, storage, and networking into software-defined infrastructure to automate tasks and accelerate your business. Through software-defined intelligence, HPE OneView takes a template-driven approach to deploying, provisioning, updating, and integrating compute, storage, and networking infrastructure. By utilizing HPE OneView, IT organizations can manage their new composable infrastructure from one unified console. As the IT organization’s infrastructure continues to grow, HPE OneView will keep pace and help continue to simplify and automate their composable infrastructure.

Ready for the composable future

Composable infrastructure was developed to make it easier for IT organizations to run and manage all their workloads more efficiently. With HPE continuing to invest in composable infrastructure, HPE will continue to be ready to help simplify IT lifecycle operations using composable infrastructure and ensure all customers are ready for the future.
