HPE Announces Deal with Mesosphere, HPE Consulting Services to Follow


Earlier this week, we announced that HPE had entered into an agreement with Mesosphere to provide a turnkey deployment of Mesosphere DC/OS on HPE hardware, and to also provide HPE support and consulting services for Mesosphere.

So what exactly is Mesosphere and the Mesosphere DC/OS? I spoke with Gary Lee Harris, the Senior Director and General Manager for the worldwide cloud development practice at HPE, who described what Mesosphere is all about.

“Mesosphere is resource and container management system to allow enterprises to standardize and scale their application delivery and DC management,” says Harris. “Mesosphere is a cloud native platform that enables standardized application and service deployment and supports an open ecosystem of containers and container orchestrators allowing flexibility and differentiation for the enterprise…traditionally, our clients have used virtualization technology such as KVM, Hyper-V, and VMware for workload deployments that typically scale through custom automation and configuration management at best. Mesosphere is really about creating standard environments and deploying applications that scale with the cloud, increasing cloud portability so business can deliver differentiated services to any cloud environment."

In a related post on the Mesosphere website, Yogi Barman, the Director of Global Strategic Partnerships at Mesosphere, explained more about what the agreements brings to both HPE and Mesosphere customers.

“Mesosphere DC/OS is a production-proven solution for customers looking to deploy big data and container operations through a single, simple, controlled platform. Currently, Mesosphere and HPE are helping several joint customers through the transformation to hybrid infrastructure, giving these companies control of their workloads and the ability to move seamlessly from datacenter to the public cloud.”
