A hybrid IT engine for your digital transformation

Succeeding in the idea economy requires IT to evolve from a provider of basic business support into an engine of value creation. Composable infrastructure in a hybrid environment empowers IT to create and deliver new value instantly and continuously, accelerating both digital and business transformation.

Composable infrastructure creates a single platform for all applications

Supporting traditional and new applications

IT needs to meet the demands of the idea economy while supporting traditional applications. Maintaining two separate environments isn’t sustainable due to increased complexity and cost. With a single hybrid infrastructure that bridges the two operating models, you can use traditional apps to support existing business processes while driving revenue and customer experiences with new apps and services that leverage mobility, big data, and cloud-native technologies.

Software-defined, composable infrastructure

Composable infrastructure is a new approach to architecture that allows you to deploy IT resources quickly and for any workload using software-defined infrastructure. It combines this software-defined intelligence with a unified API that incorporates powerful tools from the HPE partner ecosystem.

Reduce Capex and overprovisioning

Optimize all apps and service levels, reduce Capex, and free up resources using a single infrastructure with fluid resource pools of physical and virtual compute, storage, and fabric.

Deploy at cloud-like speed

Accelerate application and service delivery through a single interface that precisely composes infrastructure at near-instant speeds.

Simplify lifecycle operations

Reduce operational effort and cost with template-driven, frictionless operations.

Develop more apps faster

Increase productivity and control across the data center by integrating and automating infrastructure operations and applications through a unified API.

How composable infrastructure works

Discover how composable infrastructure propels your business forward with this special edition of the popular For Dummies® series. You'll learn how to identify the serious IT challenges businesses face today, use composable infrastructure to create and deliver new value, and apply idea economy principles to your infrastructure environment.

Fluid resource pools

Flexible resource pools of compute, storage, and fabric eliminate over-provisioning and stranded capacity. Resources are always available and can be instantly configured for any workload.

Software-defined intelligence

Software-defined intelligence enables high-level, automated operations, reducing complexity and manual tasks. Resources can be managed as a unit and dynamically allocated to meet the needs of any application.

Unified API

A unified API provides full programmability, so you can provision bare metal infrastructure with a single line of code, increasing operational efficiency and rapid deployment of IT resources.

Success in action

Composable infrastructure helps organizations across diverse verticals and geographical locations solve their IT challenges and meet their business needs.
