With a massive amount of data being generated, there is an increase in demand for data security and privacy concern. As a result, there is rising adoption of cloud-data backup; more so, it is the safest bet that organizations can put their money on. Primarily because it becomes more convenient as the storage can be changed according to the requirement, and the security that cloud provides is better than traditional on-site storage. Additionally, data is more secure, as usually the organizations take a hybrid approach to store the data. Set against this backdrop is Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), providing the underlying data storage hardware equipment, and addressing the modern need for efficient data storage, and backup and recovery solutions. Born out of Hewlett Packard's split in 2015, Hewlett Packard Enterprise focuses on enterprise products and services that include various IT solutions like hybrid cloud, intelligent edge as well as IT products like servers, data storage devices.
Having a plethora of data storage options, HPE offers the world's most intelligent storage, built for the modern hybrid cloud to help the organization to unlock the full potential of the data being generated. Their portfolio includes all-flash and hybrid storage, data protection storage, file and object storage, storage for VMs, containers, and enterprise application, and more. The products are cloud-ready storage that provides an option for any workload, from production databases to virtual machines, to backups. Moreover, the products offered by the company are driven by innovative technologies like AI and ML. For example, their HPE InfoSight is Artificial Intelligence (AI) that predicts and prevents problems across the infrastructure stack and ensures optimal performance and efficient resource use.
Amalgamating the right set of technologies, partners, services, and financial models to help organizations thrive, HPE offer as-a-service experience to its clients.
Answers to some of society’s most pressing challenges are buried in massive amounts of data
The company helps its clients in consuming just what they need, enabling them to avoid the heavy lifting and run IT with best practices across the cloud estate. In an instance, Salling Group, Denmark's leading retail chain, to thrive in the market that is fraught with narrow margins, changing customer preferences and new delivery channels spurred to harness data more effectively. The problem at hand was that the company was using IBM Power and DB2 platform to support its SAP Business Warehouse, and the platform was not able to load data fast enough to generate timely reports. The Group decided to migrate to the in-memory computing platform SAP HANA and needed an SAP partner to deliver a complete solution integrating hardware, software, and IT management services. The company brought in HPE Pointnext to help it design, build, and deploy an end-to-end solution. As a result, HPE Pointnext enabled them to transform its business with solution design, implementation, and deployment services.
Accelerating forward, HPE in May 2019 has acquired supercomputing leader Cray to handle customers' most data-intensive challenges by combining Cray's supercomputing capabilities and their cutting-edge technologies. "Answers to some of society's most pressing challenges are buried in massive amounts of data," said Antonio Neri, President and CEO, HPE. "Only by processing and analyzing this data will we be able to unlock the answers to critical challenges across medicine, climate change, space and more. Cray is a global technology leader in supercomputing and shares our deep commitment to innovation. By combining our world-class teams and technology, we will have the opportunity to drive the next generation of high-performance computing and play an important part in advancing the way people live and work." Moreover, with the new acquisition, HPE's portfolio will be further strengthened by leveraging Cray's foundational technologies and adding complementary solutions. Customer will be benefitted in many ways such as now they will have a comprehensive end-to-end portfolio of HPC infrastructure – compute, high-performance storage, system interconnects, software and services supplementing existing HPE capabilities that will address the full spectrum of the data-intensive needs.
