HPE Advances Hybrid Cloud Strategy by Extending AI, Composability and Partnerships Across PortfolioSource: Business Wire
Empowers customers to build digital transformation with automation, more choice, optimized workloads, and a consistent cloud experience
Businesses embracing digital transformation are moving critical workloads to the cloud, and are looking to tap an increasingly diverse portfolio of intelligent and automation services, and infrastructure platforms that simplify choice to improve their cloud experience. Organizations are making investments in multiple clouds, but they’re lacking operational consistency. In addition, all this data and technology, regardless of deployment model, needs to be managed and organizations are rapidly approaching limitations without automation. They need to bridge the physical and multiple cloud worlds to achieve agility and scale, and keep pace with today’s data-driven businesses.
“HPE has been at the forefront of this new data paradigm,” said
Broadening HPE’s composable portfolio
HPE introduced composable infrastructure three years ago and has
achieved tremendous growth with its flagship
- 25% lower IT infrastructure costs by eliminating over-provisioning and stranded capacity
- 71% less staff time per server deployment and 30% higher application team productivity by increasing operational efficiency and rapid deployment of IT resources
- 60% more efficient IT infrastructure teams by reducing complexity and manual tasks1
Today, HPE is extending its composable strategy to enable IT organizations to transform existing HPE ProLiant DL 360/380/560 Gen10 rack-based servers into composable infrastructure to deliver automated deployment, scale, and management for any workload. HPE’s enhanced Composable Cloud solution, built on HPE OneView IT infrastructure management and HPE Composable Fabric networking solution, will enable existing and new HPE ProLiant DL customers to quickly deploy and scale workloads across a composable rack environment, and support their choice of cloud, virtualization, or container stacks. This allows customers to protect their investment in their infrastructure platforms.
In addition to providing customers the ability to deploy their choice of

Enhancing and expanding HCI
HPE SimpliVity is the innovative hyperconverged infrastructure platform for data center virtualization and edge workloads, with rapid 105.3% year-over-year growth2. Today, HPE is enhancing its premier HPE SimpliVity HCI offering, as well as extending a hyperconverged experience to a converged architecture.
HPE is integrating HPE InfoSight AI operations into HPE SimpliVity to simplify virtual machine management and free IT staff to focus on innovation.Together, HPE SimpliVity andHPE InfoSight, the industry’s most advanced AI for infrastructure, provides customers with global visibility into detailed system, performance, and capacity utilization—enabling predictive data analytics and recommendations for system and performance optimization.
Today’s announcement follows several enhancements for edge and remote office use cases in HPE SimpliVity, including:
- The new HPE SimpliVity 325 model that’s ideal for remote offices or space-constrained locationsand providesa highly dense, scalable 1U enclosure with an AMD EPYC single CPU processor and all-flash storage
- The new HPE SimpliVity 380 storage-optimized node that provides long-term storage,with a large-capacity system to centrally aggregate copies from multi-site HPE SimpliVity implementations
