The new HPE Hyper Converged 380 lets you simplify IT operations with the consumer inspired GUI


By Diana Zavala


Much of the storage in today’s data centers is too rigid, complex and siloed to support the unpredictable demands of an on-demand infrastructure. Systems are unable to talk to each other and must be managed separately, resulting in resource underutilization, management complexity, data islands and an inability to keep up with unpredictable workloads.

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 the intuitive design and consumer-inspired simplicity of the HPE Hyper Converged 380 Management UI, an IT generalist can easily handle all management tasks, freeing up your server, storage and network specialists to pursue innovation that will grow your business. With this innovative new hyper-converged solution you can:

  1. Expand and contract the appliance, perform changes and remove VMs in minutes.
  2. Keep operations running smoothly with one-touch configuration backup and restore.

And because the HPE Hyper Converged 380 is a complete package that has been tested and validated by HPE, you can be assured that all aspects of the appliance work together seamlessly. With just three simple clicks, you can update firmware and drivers, reducing errors and increasing uptime without impacting operations. Click upgrade. Click upload. Click submit.

HPE StoreVirtual

In addition, HPE has developed a federated and flexible data fabric based on HPE StoreVirtual VSA, a software-defined storage technology that allows customers to eliminate data islands. With HPE StoreVirtual Data Fabric, customers can scale flexibly in any direction and move data between consumption options, such as between virtual, physical, hyper-converged appliances and across sites—either on-premises or in the cloud.

With the HPE StoreVirtual, no SAN is needed, reducing costs and complexity.

HPE StoreVirtual also ensures that your data is always available by letting you easily set up remote copy replication (which can be manually triggered, scripted or scheduled) for centralized backup and disaster recovery. With built-in, flexible data protection, the HPE Hyper Converged 380 ensures you can restore your data within 30 minutes.

Standard on all of HPE’s hyper-converged systems, HPE StoreVirtual is proven technology with high availability of 99.999% and enterprise-class features such as centralized management, non-disruptive scalability and support of flexible, heterogeneous environments. This proven five 9s of high availability ensures continuous data availability and the confidence that thousands of installs and petabytes of data are protected. The HPE Hyper Converged 380 is a true enterprise class, hyper-converged solution because it provides increased uptime and service levels through built-in disaster recovery—a capability found only in HPE hyper-converged systems.

The more you know, the better you can plan your resources, predict utilization and prevent issues. That’s why the HPE Hyper Converged 380 offers you tools that provide analytics at your fingertips. Advanced analytics help you increase performance and SLAs, reduce over-provisioning and costs, identify potential issues faster and engage in predictive capacity planning.

HPE Operations Analytics

The HPE Operations Analytics provides intelligent analytics with automated log analytics to find root cause in minutes and predictive analytics via machine learning to anticipate and prevent issues. The optional HPE Cloud Optimizer also helps you:

  • Monitor and quickly troubleshoot performance issues
  • Optimize physical and virtual compute, enclosure, power and storage
  • Forecast required capacity on how the allocation of resources impacts your environment through what-if analysis

Knowing the proper allocation of resources helps you balance utilization and capacity planning across your physical and virtual environments, yields cost savings and lowers TCO. Both tools present a consolidated dashboard view of analytics and detailed information for all infrastructure devices, giving you valuable insights for making necessary adjustments.

HPE Hyper Converged 380 solution support helps you simplify your IT operations and provides invaluable peace of mind. Our support service team lets you spend more time developing apps and adding value to the business rather than maintaining your infrastructure. Through comprehensive infrastructure lifecycle management, proactive advice and 24x7 solution monitoring, our team of experts helps you maximize your workload uptime and avoid problems before they occur. By connecting your system to our support processes, you will be automatically notified of potential risks, and the resolution process will be initiated before a problem occurs. If you are experiencing any issue with your solution, you will have immediate access to our team of solution experts whose priority is workload restoration, followed by diagnostics and failure analysis. HPE Hyper Converged 380 solution support is available in 30+ languages with a local presence across 140 countries.
