Enable unprecedented levels of automation and agility with cloud computing solutions.
All servers and systems
All components of a software-defined data center—including compute, storage, networking and security—are virtualized, or decoupled from specific physical hardware.
Sometimes called "virtual data centers," software-defined data centers consist of fully virtualized computing infrastructure that can be easily managed by software in an automated fashion. The abstraction of CPU, networking, storage and security allow flexible pools of resources to be seamlessly allocated across workloads as needed, which in turn allows IT to become highly elastic and scalable with highly simplified operations.
Software-defined data centers have several key benefits for businesses:
Software-defined data centers are what enable infrastructure and IT to be offered as a services (IaaS and ITaaS, respectively.) Providers bundle computing resources, management tools, and varying levels of support, then sell access on a usage-level basis.
HPE’s hyper converged systems allow you to deploy VMs with a few clicks to quickly add or reduce capacity. Our composable infrastructure allows you to run both traditional and cloud-native apps with the right mix of compute, storage and fabric from a unified API. These are the building blocks of cloud computing solutions.
