HPE puffs up Helion cloud portfolio


Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has announced new and updated members of its Helion cloud product line.

New or updated HPE Helion products include hardware, software and engineered systems.

• HPE Helion Cloud Suite helps automate, orchestrate and transform cloud resources and applications across hybrid environments. It includes full-stack automation to enable rapid delivery of IT services and applications, with a self-service storefront for IT and developers. The included development environment supports DevOps processes for traditional and cloud-native applications.

Features include operations management capabilities, cloud orchestration, big data analytics and service based compliance.

The suite includes Helion Stackato (see below) and HPE Helion OpenStack 3.0.

• HPE Helion CloudSystem 10 is an engineered hardware and software solution for enterprise grade cloud environments.

It supports a full range of workloads, and is deeply integrated with HPE OneView 3.0 for automatic provisioning of cloud resources from bare metal.

The package includes Helion OpenStack 3.0, HPE Cloud Service Automation 4.6 and Helion Stackato 4.0 for full IaaS and PaaS capabilities.

• HPE Helion Stackato 4.0 is the latest version of the open application development platform-as-a-service (PaaS) powered by Cloud Foundry for rapid delivery of cloud native applications.

It allows the use of any technology stack to build applications that are resilient, scalable and easily deployable, and once those applications are deployed it offers centralised monitoring, logging and a multi-cloud control plane.

• HPE Cloudline 3100 Server is aimed at hyper scale cloud service providers, especially for Hadoop, Cassandra or compute workloads. The CL3100 storage server occupies 1U rather than the CL5200's 4U.

HPE Helion Cloud Suite, HPE Helion CloudSystem 10, HPE Helion Stackato 4.0, HPE Cloudline 3100 Server are expected to ship in the second half of 2016.

The company has also announced several new technology services to assist with IT transformation and workload migration: Workload Portability Services (to help optimise the distribution of workloads across infrastructure), Workload Modernisation Consulting Services (assistance with modernising and moving workloads to new architectures and platforms), Cloud Native Agile Development (helps customers build and architect the right environment and integrate cloud-native applications and databases), and Cloud Broker Consulting (helps organisations define the policies and procedures and implementation plan required to build and manage a broker model).

"No enterprise has a one size fits all approach to cloud – every customer wants solutions that help them drive their business faster and cut costs across their full spectrum of applications," said HPE APJ vice-president and general manager of hybrid IT, Raj Thakur.

"Organisations require their own right mix of traditional IT, private, managed and public clouds and the flexibility to support applications spanning different technologies, architectures and delivery models.

"The HPE Helion portfolio gives customers a simple, powerful set of options, offering the breadth and coverage they need."

Active Vs. Passive DWDM Solutions

An active approach to your growing optical transport network & connectivity needs.

Building dark fibre network infrastructure using WDM technology used to be considered a complex challenge that only carriers have the means to implement.

This has led many enterprises to build passive networks, which are inferior in quality and ultimately limit their future growth.

Why are passive solutions considered inferior? And what makes active solutions great?

Read more about these two solutions, and how PacketLight fits into all this.
