Hewlett Packard Enterprise voltooit het eerste Open Infrastructuur Portfolio in de markt voor Service Providers

Amstelveen, 10 maart 2016 — Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) kondigt vandaag zijn open, voor cloud geoptimaliseerde storage server aan. Met deze aankondiging is HPE de enige top-tier leverancier die een compleet open infrastructuur productportfolio aanbiedt met mogelijkheden voor het compute-, networking- en nu ook storage assortiment. Tevens heeft HPE verbeteringen aangebracht aan de HPE Cloudline servers en de HPE Altoline network switches voor serviceproviders.

Volgens 451 Research groeit de markt voor traditionele hosting en Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) van 60 miljard dollar in 2015 naar 70 miljard dollar in 2016. Voor 2019 wordt een verdubbeling van deze markt verwacht. Bedrijven verschuiven de workload van traditionele gedeelde, gevirtualiseerde en speciaal daarvoor bestemde infrastructuurproducten naar applicatieomgevingen, inclusief IaaS en Software-as-a-Service. De implementatie van managed services en alternatieve technologische oplossingen door service providers, inclusief OpenStack, worden beschouwd als dé onderscheidende factoren.

De behoefte aan snelle groei en flexibiliteit moedigt service providers aan om de mogelijkheden van een open infrastructuur verder te verkennen. Bijvoorbeeld wanneer zij zoeken naar alternatieven bij het bouwen en beheren van datacenters die gericht zijn op schaalbare cloudfaciliteiten. Deze nieuwe technologieën, gebouwd op open standaarden, maken schaalbare datacenters lucratief. Zo biedt het serviceproviders de mogelijkheid de operationele kosten te verlagen en de efficiency te verbeteren. Daarbij kan snel worden voldaan aan de veranderende vraag van het bedrijfsleven.

Service providers hebben behoefte aan de flexibiliteit en snelheid van datacenterintegratie die past bij open infrastructuren. Tegelijkertijd waarderen ze ook het geïntegreerde management en de deployment capabilities die horen bij industriestandaarden”, zegt Reaz Rasul, Vice President en General Manager, Global Hyperscale Business van HPE. “HPE is de enige leverancier die een keuze biedt tussen standaard of open infrastructuuroplossingen, om businessgroei te stimuleren en serviceproviders de flexibiliteit te bieden die zij nodig hebben om snel en kostenefficiënt capaciteit op- of af te schalen.”

Compute for massive cloud storage
With the explosive growth of data, service providers need to increase storage capacity while maintaining the smallest datacenter footprint possible. The HPE Cloudline CL5200 is a high density, multi-node storage server designed for service providers looking for high density storage with an aggressive $/GB to run cloud storage and data analytics applications. Built on open design principles to increase adaptability and facilitate IT integration, the HPE Cloudline CL5200 fits easily into a multi-vendor management environment.

HPE Cloudline CL5200 features minimalist bare-iron design and supports one or two compute nodes for various performance tiers. The server supports up to 80 large form factor hard drives to provide up to 640 TB of storage in a single 4U chassis.

HPE expanded its partnership with Scality in January 2016, to accelerate the adoption of software-defined object and file storage. Scality RING supports HPE’s industry standard x86 servers, and now includes certified support for the HPE Cloudline CL5200. This partnership is designed to provide service providers with the flexibility, resiliency, and performance required to drive down the cost of storage at petabyte scale.

HPE ‘Open’ Networking Portfolio
HPE is expanding its portfolio of HPE Altoline switches with the introduction of four new models to its 6900 family, including one that features 25/100 Gbps. The switches will enhance customers' ability to tailor their networking infrastructure to meet their specific applications and workload requirements, and enable service providers and web scale networks to quickly scale their networks at low cost with any product of choice, all while avoiding vendor lock-in.

The HPE Altoline switch family provides service providers with their choice of open source networking operating systems, including Cumulus, Pica8, and later this year, OpenSwitch.
