HPE SimpliVity Private Cloud
When it comes to private cloud computing, HPE SimpliVity’s OmniCube hyperconverged infrastructure is the platform of choice.
Are you cloud-ready? Because cloud computing has crossed the chasm. By all accounts, cloud computing spending will reach hundreds of billions of dollars in spending worldwide in the next decade. The cloud computing paradigm has left the desks of chief technologists and has entered the mainstream lexicon of IT decision-makers. Are you one of them?
What Is Private Cloud Computing?
Any discussion on private cloud computing must first explore “cloud.” There are three core attributes of cloud computing:
- Automation, orchestration and self-provisioning of IT resources across the organization.
- Elastic infrastructure that scales up, out or in based on consumption requirements.
- A business model supporting #1 and #2.
Cloud computing enables the rapid provisioning of IT resources, including compute, memory, storage, application services, data protection services, etc., from a centralized pool of resources that are automated and orchestrated around the needs of the business. Cloud computing is fundamentally a new way of thinking about the delivery of IT services.
Your business is moving fast and it no longer has the time or patience to wait on legacy infrastructure to deliver. Think of your test and development environments where application developers need new virtual machines—and they need them now.
Developers are trying to move the needle forward—speeding time-to-market and time-to-revenue—and they don’t have time to wait for LUN provisioning, RAID group building, datastore allocation, shares, volumes, backup policies, or Wide Area Network (WAN) planning. They have a virtual machine, and they want to clone it and get moving.
With a private cloud comes the confidence of knowing that your infrastructure is your infrastructure and no one else’s. Private cloud computing is not a multi-tenant Amazon Web Services-type infrastructure where you may be fighting for resources with other customers at the same time. A private cloud provides you with your own dedicated set of infrastructure. Private cloud computing doesn’t necessarily mean your infrastructure is on site. Your IT organization needs a new methodology of delivering services to your end users, whether the equipment is physically hosted on site or in a trusted service provider’s environment.H2:The Benefits of Hyperconvergence
Hyperconvergence is a re-architecturing of the IT environment, combining previously disparate technologies into a single shared resource pool. By leveraging virtualization to abstract workloads from the underlying hardware, data is associated with its virtual machine and becomes mobile. Hyperconvergence is a welcome change to the data center, as evidenced by a 55% compounded annual growth rate of hyperconvergence adoption through 2016. IT organizations are starting to see the benefits in terms of not only capital expenses, but also operational efficiencies.
Is hyperconvergence for you? Wouldn’t it be nice to no longer need to separately manage servers, storage arrays, backup applications, backup appliances, replication and disaster recovery? And, wouldn’t it be nice to not have to train your employees to use 10 different management interfaces? Hyperconvergence allows you to avoid countless man-hours for a variety of manual tasks that legacy infrastructure requires.
Instead, you can focus your time and energy on actually delivering services to end users. You can focus on meeting Service Level Agreements (SLAs), and, ultimately, help your business meet its two core objectives: grow revenue and reduce costs.
HPE SimpliVity’s Utility Enablement Program
HPE SimpliVity has established a revolutionary program to enable providers of private cloud computing: HPE SimpliVity’s Utility Enablement Program.
The HPE SimpliVity program consists of:
- Innovative technology
- Innovative business model
Private Cloud Technology
Do you want to deploy public cloud computing? HPE SimpliVity OmniCube can be deployed on-premises, allowing you to build out your own private cloud. Alternatively, HPE SimpliVity OmniCube can be deployed in a trusted service provider’s cloud. The service provider can easily build a dedicated private cloud for its customers based on HPE SimpliVity OmniCube. Designed with the cloud in mind, HPE SimpliVity OmniCube hyperconverged infrastructure optimizes for private cloud computing environments, with global federation and management of OmniCube instances. It’s a 2U rack-mounted building block that delivers server, storage, and networking services in addition to a complete set of advanced functionality that enables dramatic improvements to the management, protection, and performance of workloads. And, it does it at a fraction of the cost and with extreme reduction in complexity when compared to legacy infrastructure stacks.
The Consume Less and Pay Less Business Model
Hyperconvergence, small building blocks, resources on demand, ease of scalability, and automation are all characteristics of a private cloud-computing model. HPE SimpliVity enables the delivery of cloud-like services with a business model that is more directly tied the consumption of resources. HPE SimpliVity’s services catalogue aligns to the consumption of virtual machines. Use more virtual machines, pay more. Consume less and pay less.
