VMware’s premier thought leadership destination, VMworld, is continuously bringing new innovations for cloud infrastructure and digital workspace technology professionals. At the VMworld conference, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) announced a composable platform for VMware Cloud Foundation for the first time in the industry.
Composable infrastructure allows organizations to compose physical and virtual compute, fabric pools, storage into the desired configuration per application and can then be recomposed as per the need.
It will help organizations get digitally transformed with hybrid IT infrastructure, get private clouds and IaaS quickly with lower VM costs by as much as 50%, as compared to legacy server racks and public cloud services.
This solution is based on the HPE Synergy, the foremost platform that’s built from scratch for Composable Infrastructure, empowers IT for creating and delivering new value continuously. Using it, workloads can be deployed easily across private cloud or a traditional data center. The infrastructure is automated through HPE OneView and can be relocated as needed only in a few minutes. Using HPE Synergy, the bare metal workloads can be run based on vSAN based environments, and the DevOps initiatives can be boosted.
“In today’s competitive digital world, enterprises need technology that enables them to quickly introduce and scale new services. HPE Synergy with VMware Cloud Foundation will deliver a private cloud experience that empowers IT to be an internal service provider and enables rapid response to business needs with single-click DevOps delivery.”- Ric Lewis, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Software-Defined and Cloud Group, HPE
Every IT company needs to set a balance between Capital Expenditure (CapEx) and Operational Expenditure (OpEx) for the on-premises and cloud infrastructure. The HPE composable infrastructure for VMware private clouds is supposed to fulfil those needs.
As per HPE, the solution can deliver VMs at 29% lower prices than many traditional architectures, and about 50% cheaper than the public clouds.
This composable infrastructure will soon be certified and is expected to be available from Q4 of 2017 via HPE and its distribution partners.
