These customers have harnessed the power of HCI 2.0

Learn how these customers have taken advantage of the disaggregated HCI architecture — one that’s intelligently simple across its lifecycle, absolutely resilient for the most demanding apps, and flexibly scalable according to their needs.

Explore the boundary-breaking new architecture

Simplest experience yet

Be up and running in less than 15 minutes — and then stay up with no-compromise, always-on data services, and continuous wellness monitoring from storage to VMs. Manage everything with VM-centric operations in VMware vCenter, and stay current via 1-click upgrades. Enjoy all of this as-a-service from HPE GreenLake.

Unmatched performance & resiliency

HCI delivers agility and ease of use, but its architectural limitations make it a risky bet for business-critical apps. HPE Alletra dHCI delivers sub-ms latency, 99.9999% guaranteed availability, built-in data protection, and can tolerate three simultaneous drive failures without a hiccup in performance. No other HCI can touch that.

Flexible scale and zero waste

Enjoy the unrivaled economics of an architecture that can scale compute and storage independently — and deliver guaranteed best data efficiency. Eliminate over-provisioning, reduce storage costs by 33-50%, and extend apps and data across your hybrid cloud with bi-directional data mobility and no egress charges.

It's the cloud experience and then some

Leverage all the cloud advantages of self-service IT, automation, simplicity, and elasticity — but with better resiliency, performance, and efficiency. Take advantage of flexible, independent scaling, and rely on the industry-leading intelligence of HPE InfoSight for self-managing, self-optimizing operations. Do it all with HPE Alletra dHCI delivered as-a-service via HPE GreenLake.

Leverage the most advanced AI in the industry

Traditional HCI is great for Day 0 and Day 1 — speeding deployments and getting apps up and running — but for Day 2 and beyond, you need AI-driven intelligence to say goodbye to fighting fires. HPE Alletra dHCI embeds HPE InfoSight, the industry’s most advanced AI for infrastructure, for predictive analytics that diagnose and resolve issues so you don’t have to.

Explore the solutions powering HPE Alletra dHCI

IT would love to extend the HCI experience to every application; dHCI makes that possible. With consistent performance and enterprise-grade resiliency (neither of which require any tuning to maintain), as well as flexible scale and unrivaled efficiency, HPE Alletra dHCI is ready for all your apps.

No performance drop-off

Rather than deal with HCI’s inconsistent and growing latency across nodes, dHCI delivers consistent sub-ms latency at scale.

Resiliency is no contest

With HCI, if you lose a node, you risk losing access to both the data and the application. Not so with dHCI: guaranteed 99.9999% data availability delivers the kind of reliability that traditional HCI just can’t touch.

Flexibility, and no waste

Under HCI, you’re either locked into rigid scaling that invariably leaves resources idle, or buying specialized nodes for performance or capacity and having to manually assign drives. Why box yourself in? With dHCI, you waste zero resources and scale any way you want.

Zero tuning, ever

To optimize data storage with HCI, you’re constantly tuning your balance between effective capacity and performance — for every VM. It’s an endless, time-consuming series of trade-offs. With dHCI, data services are always-on and always-optimized, period.

Guaranteed best data efficiency

Store more data in the same (or less) capacity on HPE Alletra dHCI than any competitive offering, guaranteed.

Start fast and stay current — easily

Stand up full-stack infrastructure at scale in less than 15 minutes with auto-discovery and policy-driven automation. Then keep your infrastructure up to date with seamless 1-click upgrades.

Frequently Asked Questions about HPE dHCI

What is HPE dHCI?

Disaggregated hyperconverged infrastructure (dHCI) is a form of hyperconverged infrastructure that goes beyond the traditional setup by enabling businesses to control the ratio of compute and storage resources they provision in their HCI nodes. This is accomplished through the combined technology of HPE ProLiant servers and HPE Alletra arrays.


dHCI radically simplifies infrastructure for every application by reimagining HCI without limitations. Built for mixed workloads at scale, HPE Alletra dHCI lowers costs with flexible, independent scaling of compute and storage and industry-leading data efficiency. It enables IT agility while ensuring apps are always-on and always-fast. VM-centric and AI-driven operations make it effortless, while 99.9999% guaranteed data availability and consistent sub-millisecond latency mean it's ideal for the most demanding applications and workloads. Finally, HPE Alletra dHCI maximizes agility by unlocking the cloud experience across hybrid cloud.
