HPE Edgeline Converged Edge Systems
The edge is where the action is
The edge is everywhere that is not the data centre nor the cloud – a factory floor, an oil rig or an airport – practically anywhere. The things residing at the edge – cars, drills, cameras, personal devices and more – are sources of rapidly growing big data. The ability to analyse this data in a rapid and efficient manner, and then take action on the data, enables you to optimise operations, redefine employee experiences, improve customer satisfaction and create differentiated business models.
Data insight and action across the enterprise
To improve line of business efficiency, organisations can converge Operational Technology (OT) systems already out at the edge with enterprise-class IT systems traditionally found in the datacentre. HPE Edgeline Converged Edge Systems delivers on the promise of converged OT and IT in a single ruggedised system for the edge.
The first promise of value is that HPE Edgeline converges OT such as data acquisition systems, control systems and industrial networks already in place at the edge with traditional IT systems. The benefit of this convergence results in less space, less energy, lower operating expenses and overall higher performance in a converged edge system. And it’s only available from HPE.
The second promise of value is that HPE Edgeline shifts uncompromised enterprise-class IT from the data centre out to the edge with Intel Xeon compute, up to 48 TB of SSD storage, integrated networking, wired/wireless connectivity to infrastructure, and secure systems management via HPE Integrated Lights-Out (iLO) – all in a rugged design. Now you can run unmodified enterprise-class software applications directly at the edge and benefit from faster response times, improved security and proven reliability.
HPE Edgeline Converged Edge Systems
HPE Edgeline converges operational technology, such as data acquisition, control systems and industrial networks, with enterprise-class IT in a single, rugged system suited for harsh edge environments. Each compact HPE Edgeline system is outfitted with robust Intel Xeon compute, high-capacity fast storage, high-performance IT/OT wired and wireless connectivity and industry-leading remote systems management. HPE partners with OT industry leaders such as ABB, GE, PTC, Keysight and National Instruments, and IT industry leaders such as Microsoft, SAP and Citrix, to deliver a comprehensive set of Converged Edge OT+IT solutions to customers.
Unleash the edge’s full potential by running enterprise-class applications unmodified at the edge – not just pared-down edge versions. Run identical workloads in the data centre, cloud or edge – whether containers, virtual machines, databases, software-defined storage or something else.
Actuate and control things at the edge through a single integrated platform that combines OT systems with enterprise-class IT. You can connect OT systems over interfaces such as direct-wired I/O and industrial protocols that don’t exist in the traditional ethernet-based IT environment.
Edge optimised systems management
Optimise your operation by actuating the equipment that drives the industrial edge. Improve uptime and system administrator efficiency with new first-of-a-kind edge-optimised management that provides iLO-based familiarity and simplicity.
Rugged form factor
Withstand harsh edge environments with a rugged form factor that is designed for severe, space-constrained and dusty environments to withstand shock, vibration and extreme temperatures ranges.
Introducing HPE Edgeline OT Link
Enable fast, simple and secure deployment and management of OT. Use the drag-and-drop simplicity of HPE Edgeline OT Link to integrate OT networks, data flows and control systems with standard IT-based IoT and business software.
Simplify the movement of data from the physical world into the digital domain via an easy-to-use workload flow designer. Orchestrate all components, data and applications, and integrate with the data centre and cloud to make insights from the edge available across the enterprise and supply chain.
