Not your ordinary HCI

With automation powered by HPE GreenLake for Private Cloud Business Edition you can provision, manage, and protect your virtual machines across hybrid cloud environments. Representing the latest evolution of HPE hyperconverged technology, this solution enables you to easily manage and scale your global fleet of VMs from a single console. It enables simplified VM and infrastructure management across hybrid cloud workloads and provides self-service agility from a single, global dashboard with a cloud operational experience. You can orchestrate the provisioning of VMs built on a choice of HPE hyperconverged infrastructure, including HPE SimpliVity, or public cloud infrastructure.

Drive app modernization with containers

Accelerate your adoption of agile, cloud-native, containerized apps. With HPE SimpliVity, there’s no need for separate systems to power VMs and containers: the Container Storage Interface (CSI) Driver for Kubernetes enables you to easily run everything on a single platform — without additional infrastructure.

Get the most efficient, all-in-one HCI

Take advantage of HPE SimpliVity’s unrivaled efficiency — with HA across just two nodes and enterprise-grade data services and security built-in.

Consume HPE SimpliVity on demand

Leverage the flexibility and ease of use of industry-leading hyperconverged — but in a consumption-based model that delivers exactly the IT you need, when you need it. HPE SimpliVity is now available as a service through HPE GreenLake.

Enable intelligently simple management

Accelerate time to market and bring an end to IT fire-fighting. Software-defined automation simplifies and speeds day 0 and 1, while artificial intelligence predicts and prevents problems to optimize day 2 and beyond.

Enjoy 90% capacity savings, guaranteed

The hyper efficiency baked into HPE SimpliVity improves application performance, frees up storage, and accelerates local and remote backup and restore functions. We guarantee a 90% capacity savings across storage and backup combined — and you enjoy 10:1 data efficiency.

Remain online and recoverable — always

Leverage built-in backup and disaster recovery to ensure business continuity. HPE SimpliVity’s speed and efficiency enable recovery of a 1 TB VM in 60 seconds. Now you can deploy and consolidate workloads on HPE SimpliVity.

Drive savings for edge and ROBO workloads

HPE SimpliVity’s efficient data services, centralized management, and comprehensive data protection and disaster recovery deliver savings of up to 66% versus traditional three-tier, cloud, or other HCI infrastructure.

Our customers

Power and protect your virtualized infrastructure

Simplify the VM experience by delivering true hyperconvergence at scale — from edge to data center — with efficiency, resiliency, density, and simplicity.

Reduce capacity requirements with operational efficiency

Operational efficiency reduces capacity requirements and improves application speed and performance. Always-on, inline deduplication and compression only needs to happen once, delivering 90% capacity savings across primary storage and backup – guaranteed! Key features include:

  • Data efficiency - Always-on, at inception, inline deduplication and compression guarantees 90% capacity savings across primary storage and backup saving costs
  • Application performance - Achieve improved performance from all-flash storage, tiered caching, and always-on, inline dedupe and compression
  • Operational efficiency - Operational efficiency frees up 91% of IT organizations’ time to focus on new projects
Achieve resiliency and high availability

Achieve high availability with just 2 nodes. HPE SimpliVity tolerates simultaneous drive failures without data loss, and built-in data protection and disaster recovery features help keep data safe. Key features include:

  • High availability - High availability tolerates simultaneous drive failures without data loss and achieves high availability with a minimum of 2 nodes
  • Backup - Full logical VM backups with policy-based automation and near zero overhead
  • Restore - Guaranteed 60-second restore of 1 TB VM
  • Disaster recovery - Automated, multi-site, rapid disaster recovery reduces the risk of data loss and costly business downtime
Leverage high-density resource pools

Flexible, consolidated resource pools are cost effective building blocks for a variety of workloads. The award-winning HPE SimpliVity 2600 provides space-constrained environments with high-density, enterprise grade features and functionality. Key features include:

  • Collapse the stack into one solution - Flexible resource pools of compute, storage, and composable fabric networking collapsed into one solution
  • Scale - Simple, parallel node deployment to scale out from small to large VM environments in small, 2U increments
  • Consolidation and cost savings - Simplify and save: one solution, one refresh cycle, one generalist needed to manage the whole stack
Simplify management with a single interface

Simple and automated operations eliminate the need for specialized IT skills. VM administrators manage the entire IT stack from a single, familiar interface. Back up, clone, or restore a VM in 3 clicks, guaranteed, using policy-based, VM-centric management. Key features include:

  • VM-centric management - Policy-based, global VM-centric management with automation, visibility, intelligence
  • VM agility - VM creation, backup, replication, and recovery with right-click operations from familiar interface
  • VM mobility - Moves VMs quickly and globally from one site to another
  • Simple management from one interface - No LUNS, shares, or volumes to manage. Through a single interface, you have a global view into data centers as well as remote and branch offices
