Hewlett Packard Enterprise Introduces Modular ‘Micro’ Data Center for Distributed IT
DECEMBER 5, 2016 • News Advisory
New pre-integrated, software-defined HPE Micro Datacenter optimized for hybrid IT operations
Las Vegas – Dec 5, 2016 – Today, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) introduced HPE Micro Datacenter, a self-contained converged IT and facilities solution that incorporates compute, network, storage, and unified management control to provide customers a micro-modular data center for distributed IT and edge computing.
Exponential growth in data has created a new level of demand on data centers. The need for localized content delivery and data analytics means enterprises may need to provide increased and timely compute resource both onsite and at distributed locations. Modular data centers have become an answer to this challenge in that they are easily installed, self-contained, scalable and remotely managed.
The new HPE Micro Datacenter, which utilizes HPE ConvergedSystems, HPE Hyper Converged Systems, and HPE Edgeline solutions, bridges the gap between facility and IT requirements for customers that need a solution they can deploy quickly and easily, wherever needed. This hybrid IT solution integrates data center infrastructure management (DCIM) with HPE OneView IT infrastructure management to provide a single management interface with a converged view of IT and data center facility from a customers centralized operations. In addition to pre-configured architectures, the HPE Micro Datacenter also supports custom configurations designed to meet the customers business requirements.
Our production facility is remotely based, near the natural base of resources, making it a challenge to sustain IT infrastructure. Industrial systems integration was being compromised by IT limitations, said Diego Avils, CIO, Golden Omega. "Current data center facilities were subject to industrial environment risks, and security could be improved. A self-contained micro data center was a clear solution. The HPE Micro Datacenter stood out because it was the only holistic solution, remotely manageable, that also provided the functional protection we needed.
Featuring software-defined and cloud-enabled converged infrastructure, the HPE Micro Datacenter is optimized for hybrid IT operations. The solution aims to provide greater speed, agility and operational control than building a data center or leasing space.
Customers are telling us more and more they need compute where the work is done, but with enterprise data center characteristics, said Richard Einhorn, vice president, data center consulting, HPE. We are able to deliver a factory assembled, pre-integrated, pre-tested solution within weeks.
Pricing and Availability
HPE Micro Datacenter is immediately available from HPE and channel partners. Pricing will vary by customer configuration. Customers may utilize HPE Flexible Capacity, allowing them to scale and pay on demand.
