Hewlett Packard Enterprise Expands Managed Cloud and Service Broker Capabilities
New management portal and support for Microsoft Azure help enterprises gain control over hybrid infrastructure
LAS VEGAS – June 7, 2016 – Hewlett Packard Enterprise (NYSE: HPE) today introduced enhancements to HPE Helion Managed Cloud and HPE Cloud Services Broker services to help enterprises improve control over their hybrid infrastructure.
As enterprises accelerate their adoption of cloud technologies, hybrid environments are becoming the norm. While the benefits are substantial, they can bring increased cost, complexity and risk in integrating IT infrastructure with native and non-native applications. If not managed carefully, each cloud can create a new ‘silo’.
The expanded managed cloud and service broker capabilities include:
- HPE Helion Managed Cloud is now supported by a new management portal that provides customers with more flexible configuration options for compute and storage services. It also supports hourly pricing for the consumption of compute and storage services, allowing better alignment of cost to consumption of services.
- HPE Helion Managed Cloud Service Broker now extends its multi-cloud capabilities to include Microsoft Azure. This managed service streamlines the provisioning, access and control of services across traditional IT and multiple cloud providers. The added Azure capability provides expanded cloud provider options, enabling organizations to consume services from the provider who can best meet their specific business requirements. New financial management features have been added to make it easier for IT departments to gain a clear view of spend and performance including the assignment of charges to different costs centers or projects, with support for multiple currencies.
“While the cloud promises significant advantages in terms of speed, agility and lower costs, those advantages are lost when organizations face a sprawl of unmanaged, siloed cloud instances,” said Eugene O’Callaghan, vice president, Enterprise Services Workload and Cloud, Hewlett Packard Enterprise. “HPE managed services free customers from having to implement, configure, monitor and maintain services, which allows them to focus on strategic priorities.”
HPE Helion Managed Cloud and HPE Helion Managed Cloud Broker updates are targeted for availability in early second half of 2016.
