The edge is everywhere at HPE Discover

HPE_Discover-2022_PPT_SessionsNot2Miss-BlogSize-v1-Edge.jpgA big focus for HPE Discover will be at the edge; how to maximize the richness of growing data surrounding your customers, citizens, employees, and infrastructure. At the same time, managing data distributed across stores, factories, clinics, schools, and all remote locations can be daunting. Throughout the week, we will showcase and discuss the latest ways to connect, protect, analyze, and act upon your data.

We welcome you to dive into all the latest topics at the edge, including AI, consolidation, data management, simplifying edge deployments, private 5G, and let’s not forget -- security. But as you know, technology does not drive your deployments; rather, it is what your organization gets from the technology. To frame technology in your language, you will see the edge come to life in demos highlighting cities, renewable energy, manufacturing, healthcare, and even in space.

Join us, whether in Las Vegas or online, to engage with experts and your peers to capitalize on data from edge to cloud. The demos and sessions will provide a great platform to learn, ideate, and get immersed in all things distributed across the edge.

AI at the Edge

For organizations to modernize along their digital transformation journey, more processing of data needs to occur where the data originates (in this scenario, at the edge). In this solution demonstration, we will show multiple AI workloads running on an HPE Edgeline EL8000 using HPE Ezmeral Data Fabric for edge/core/cloud connectivity. The applications will include Signal Identification (DeepSig), Computer Vision (, and GPU-accelerated analytics (

Edge demos

Your business runs on data, with much of this data distributed across edge locations. Whether your data is files, objects, streams, or databases and spread across edge locations, the core data center, and public clouds, the HPE Ezmeral Data Fabric helps you to modernize data infrastructure and breaks down silos. Data can freely be accessed across your entire distributed enterprise. Applications or teams can now directly access objects or files regardless of where they are located. This demo will show you how.

When running multiple factories, stores, hotels, or hospitals, minimizing complexity is paramount to operational excellence. Even across multiple geographies, you can easily deploy the power of an edge computing cluster with HPE GreenLake to manage your data. This demo illustrates how HPE GreenLake will help you deploy and centrally manage your distributed enterprise with your choice of application platforms, including HPE Ezmeral, VMware, Microsoft, Red Hat, SUSE, Nutanix, and Google.
