HPE announced an all-in-one compute, software-defined storage and intelligent virtualization appliance, the Hyper Converged 380 (HC 380).
The HC 380 will be available on March 31, 2016 and pricing will be revealed at that time.
It is built on the HPE ProLiant DL380 server and helps organizations to transform to a hybrid infrastructure while simplifying IT operations and reducing overall costs.
With this system in place, HPE said, mid-sized and remote office branch office (ROBO) enterprises can deploy virtual machines in minutes.
“Hyper-convergence presents a huge opportunity for mid-sized and ROBO enterprises who face the unique challenge of having to stay competitive at enterprise-scale, but with notably less resources,” said Vikram K, Director, Servers, HPE India.
According to Gartner, the current hyperconverged integrated systems market will grow from $371.5 million in 2014, to nearly $5 billion by 2019, or at a CAGR of 68 percent.
HPE further said, HC 380 intuitive User Experience (UX) management software offers a simple, user experience that is easy to manage on a desktop or mobile device.
It noted that only five clicks are needed to deploy VMs and 15 minutes to add capacity with customizable, repeated templates for VM provisioning.
“The ability to simplify IT management into a consumer-inspired experience that can easily provision virtual machines, scale-out performance and capacity, do online updates and provide centralized environment analytics is essential for organizations looking to maximize their IT resources and budgets while helping them speed up their time-to-value,” says Dan Molina, CTO of Nth Generation.
