Significantly reduce data center costs with the new HPE Hyper Converged 380


By Diana Zavala

Last week we announced the new HPE Hyper Converged 380 (HC380) powered by Intel®, an all-in-one compute, software-defined storage and intelligent virtualization solution that lets you respond to business needs faster due to its consumer inspired design. I can’t stop talking about the great benefits it offers; my last 2 blogs detailed how this latest system lets you deploy at cloud speed and simplify IT operations. Today, I will focus on how you can reduce costs with the HPE Hyper Converged 380.

The HPE Hyper Converged 380 allows you to build, scale and protect your hyper-converged infrastructure more affordably and effectively than any other option bigstock-Costs-Reduction-101997941.jpgavailable today. HPE is the only company offering a 2-node hyper-converged appliance, so you can purchase a solution that is the right size for you, one that fits more easily into your budget. And automated scaling lets you expand with ease when the time comes. After the initial 2-node installation, you can add one node at a time, up to 16 nodes, in order to handle your changing workloads. The HPE Hyper Converged 380 is also the lowest cost to scale, supporting more VMs per node, which results in lower hardware and software costs. Storage capacity is simple to add to any x86 server, and unlike competing solutions, you don’t need to add an entirely new appliance.

With the HPE Hyper Converged 380, you also reduce overall costs because no separate backup appliance is required. This gives you significant savings over competing products.

Because the HPE Hyper Converged 380 is so easy to implement and manage, costly server, storage and networking specialists are not needed, saving you even more. An IT generalist can easily manage, maintain and integrate your HPE hyper-converged infrastructure. Pay-as-you-go is also available through the HPE Flexible Capacity model, giving you additional flexibility for cost savings.

The HPE Hyper Converged 380 saves operating expenses because it enables continuous delivery and cost optimization. The HPE Hyper Converged 380 Management UI increases productivity and control across the data center by integrating and automating infrastructure operations and applications. Additionally, software-defined intelligence reduces operational effort and cost with template driven, frictionless operations.
