HPE and Google Cloud Partner to Simplify Hybrid CloudSource: Business Wire
Partnership will enable customers to seamlessly build, run and manage services on-premises and in the cloud with Anthos
As part of the initial strategic agreement, HPE will offer two HPE Validated Designs for Google Cloud’s Anthos based on HPE SimpliVity hyperconverged infrastructure and HPE Nimble Storage and HPE ProLiant servers. HPE’s validation of Anthos on its solutions provides HPE’s and Google Cloud’s mutual customers the flexibility to choose the right mix of on-premises infrastructure and public cloud to best meet their needs.
Additionally, HPE will offer validated on-premises infrastructure-as-a-service through HPE GreenLake, HPE’s fully managed pay-per-use consumption offering. Customers who choose this offering can run applications as a service in a Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) environment on-premises and benefit from the same container-based design across their hybrid infrastructure.
Customers can leverage Anthos to manage their public cloud as well as on-premises resources. With HPE GreenLake, they will benefit from a consistent consumption model for their on-premises environment.
“Customers tell us they value choice, simplicity, and consistency in
building their hybrid cloud strategy,” said
“We’re working closely with HPE to make it easy for customers to incorporate Anthos into their cloud strategies,” said Kevin Ichhpurani, Corporate Vice President, Global Ecosystem and Business Development at Google Cloud. “We’re delighted that HPE shares our ‘build once, run anywhere’ approach and look forward to expanding our partnership for hybrid cloud solutions on behalf of customers.”
Accelerate Container Deployment with HPE and Google Cloud
Today, organizations are using container-based architectures to
modernize applications and make developers more agile, applications more
portable, and deployments more streamlined.
Anthos’ use of virtual machines to run containers on-premises allows customers to securely and efficiently run production applications on software-defined infrastructure that is easily managed, monitored, scaled, and optimized. The new solutions from HPE and Google Cloud will make it easier for customers to leverage containers and drive a consistent cloud experience, so applications are built once to run anywhere, across clouds and on-premises.
Together, these solutions are ideal for a range of use cases, including implementing DevOps through a CI/CD pipeline, developing applications in Google Cloud and running them in production on-premises, and deploying low-cost distributed edge containerized applications.
How it Works
Today’s partnership announcement consists of the following components:
HPE Validated Design for Anthos on HPE SimpliVity brings the
simplicity of a hyperconverged solution to GKE. This solution
simplifies test/dev and hybrid cloud management for containerized
applications hosted at the enterprise edge. HPE SimpliVity’s strong
remote management capabilities and bandwidth-efficient replication
between sites make for easy installation and central administration.
The combination of infrastructure and advanced data services for
VMwareand Hyper-V virtualized workloads, as well as containers in VMs, enables an easy transition to a container environment by allowing containers and VMs to share the same hardware and storage.
- HPE Validated Design for Anthos on HPE Nimble Storage and HPE ProLiant provides a flexible architecture for storage-centric workloads that require independent scaling of compute and storage. This solution brings mission-critical reliability and the speed of flash to container environments along with uniform management across on-premises and public cloud. Applications can be modernized in place and hybrid cloud can be implemented to accelerate time-to-market, lower administrative overhead, and drive innovation.
HPE GreenLake allows customers to experience a flexible
consumption model for the validated HPE on-premises infrastructure
that is integrated with Anthos to provide a fully managed container
orchestration service. Organizations can deploy containers on demand
without having to manage the underlying on-premises infrastructure,
introducing time and cost savings. HPE GreenLake customers benefit
- Reducing deployment time by 65%2
- Improving productivity by 40%
- Lowering overprovisioning by 30%
HPE is a global technology leader focused on developing intelligent
solutions that allow customers to capture, analyze, and act upon data
seamlessly from edge to cloud.
