What is Synergy?
Composable infrastructure provides a fluid set of resources that can be dynamically combined to meet the unique needs of any application. HPE Synergy is the first composable, software-defined infrastructure. With HPE Synergy, you can instantly compose and recompose fluid pools of physical and virtual compute, storage, and fabric resources into any configuration to run any application or workload.
History of Synergy
HPE originally announced Synergy, the first composable product, at Discover London in 2016. The first Synergy unit was shipped in May of 2017.
Key Synergy innovations
HPE Synergy brings together next-generation compute, a variety of storage options, futureproofed networking, and one integrated management platform.
With software-defined intelligence, HPE Synergy uses automation to remove the complexity and time needed for your day-to-day operations, thereby increasing productivity and reducing costs. HPE Synergy is 100% programmable, with a single interface and repeatable templates to drive simplicity for on-premises infrastructure. And, with a unified API, you can seamlessly integrate dozens of popular management, open-source automation, and DevOps tools such as Chef, Docker, and OpenStack.
Synergy’s current models
HPE Synergy 12000 Frame: The HPE Synergy 12000 Frame is the base for HPE Synergy intelligent infrastructure with embedded management and scalable links that expand to meet business demand.
HPE Synergy Composer: HPE Synergy Composer combines multiple tools into a single interface for virtually every life cycle operational change. These changes can be quickly implemented by a single administrator.
HPE Synergy Image Streamer: HPE Synergy Image Streamer implements rapid image/application changes to multiple compute nodes in an automated manner. HPE Synergy Image Streamer works with HPE Synergy Composer to rapidly deploy and update multiple physical compute nodes.
HPE Synergy D3940 Storage Module: The HPE Synergy D3940 Storage Module can run anything and is composed with compute resources to meet the demands of a wide range of data workloads.
HPE Synergy Fabric: HPE Synergy Fabric is rack-scale, multi-fabric connectivity that eliminates standalone top-of-rack (TOR) switches.
