At its most basic, hyperconverged infrastructure combines physical servers and storage with data services inside a single chassis or hyperconverged node. Whereas other brands converge only part of the infrastructure, HPE SimpliVity converges the entire IT stack in each node, consolidating as many as 10 devices and apps in a simple, powerful building block for virtualized environments. Architected to empower the VM administrator, HPE SimpliVity improves the management, protection, efficiency, and performance of virtualized workloads.
HPE SimpliVity hyperconverged infrastructure combines the entire IT stack into a single hyperconverged node, providing the agility and economics of the cloud with enterprise-grade performance and data protection. The all-flash, scalable, pre-integrated building blocks support a variety of virtualized workloads and use cases, including data protection, data centre consolidation, Tier-1 applications, virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), and complete “data-centre-in-a-box” deployments at the edge.
HPE SimpliVity features and innovations include:
VM-centric management and mobility for guaranteed simplicity
Inline deduplication, compression, and optimization are applied to all data at inception, for increased efficiency and application performance.
Built-in data protection and resiliency features, including automation and orchestration tools to automate failover and failback for disaster recovery
The ability to cluster and federate systems into a shared resource pool that delivers high availability, mobility, and efficient scaling of performance and capacity
To further boost performance and manageability, HPE SimpliVity solutions can be integrated with intelligent networking fabric, HPE Composable Fabric, which allocates bandwidth dynamically, based on application awareness and priority. HPE Composable Fabric technology automates network management operations with end-to-end visualization of the network from a single user interface.
