Solving business & infrastructure problems w/ HPE Reference Architectures & Reference Configurations



Farah.jpgBy guest blogger Farah Syed, CDI Marketing

Reference Architectures (RAs) and Reference Configurations (RCs) have been a huge success over the past few years. They enable customers to reduce the complexities of planning, designing and implementing infrastructure across a variety of workloads and infrastructure platforms with proven and validated solutions. Because HPE RAs are tested configurations using validated platforms, they minimize risk and deliver faster time-to-value.

To make it easier to find and use the right RAs, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has launched a new Reference Architecture website. The new website helps customers find the latest news on RAs and RCs technical whitepapers--and find out what HPE experts have to say about new and current data center trends. The new resource section consists of videos on new partnership announcements (Docker and vArmour, to name a few!), solution briefs, infographics and the latest blog articles about what’s happening in the industry. The solution briefs and bigstock-A-spiral-bound-book-with-the-w-28380314.jpginfographics provide quick overviews of detailed technical white papers that make it easier to understand what business problems the RAs are enabling you to solve.

The portfolio of HPE RAs and RCs continues to grow as additional critical applications are added to support workloads such as cloud, big data, VDI, security, business continuity, and backup and recovery. A workload-based RA and RC may include third party hardware and software that can be deployed on a set of platforms. These workload-based solutions are available on a wide-ranging set of HPE platforms that include: HPE ConvergedSystems, HPE Hyper Converged, HPE Composable Infrastructure, HPE ProLiant and HPE Mission Critical Server.

Built on decades of technical expertise and ISV best practices, HPE RAs are fully tested and validated by HPE engineering teams--doing the in-depth testing so you don’t have to. Think of RAs like a step-by-step guide that allows you to build your own car taking out the guess work of knowing where how all the specific component parts fit together. 

Visit the new HPE Reference Architecture page to learn about the new workloads and featured white papers. Don’t forget to bookmark to stay tuned for more updates and changes coming soon.

Finally, the HPE Information Library is another great tool that allows users to search for RAs/RCs and other supporting documents by workload, platform, applications or document type. A new Search Resources feature has been added to enable you to find the relevant document with a few key words, and you can use the contact HPE feature for questions, recommendations on workloads or suggestions.  Watch a quick video tutorial to learn how to use information library to quickly find what you need.  

Check out the new Reference Architecture website today and start learning more about how tested configurations using validated platforms cam minimize your risk and give you faster time-to-value.
