A match made in hyperconverged heaven: HPE and SimpliVity’s roadmap for the future
HPE’s acquisition of hyperconverged solution provider, SimpliVity, officially closed on February 17, 2017. By bringing together HPE’s best-in-class infrastructure, automation and cloud management software with SimpliVity’s industry leading software-defined data management platform, HPE and its partner ecosystem will deliver the industry’s only built-for-enterprise hyperconverged offering.
Looking ahead, customers can expect HPE to bring SimpliVity technologies together with HPE hyperconverged solutions in a powerful way.
Within the first 60 days after the acquisition closes, HPE intends to have SimpliVity’s OmnniStack qualified on the HPE ProLiant DL380, the world’s best-selling server. Once this first integration milestone is achieved, HPE will be able to offer customers the SimpliVity Experience on a trusted platform they have been running for years. Enterprise class data services such as compression and deduplication will get delivered – and because the solution is hardware accelerated, it comes without the traditional performance trade-offs common with software-only options of competing solutions.
Continuing down the path of integration, the next major milestone will be the combination of HPE investments in the Hyper Converged Operating Environment and SimpliVity’s data services.
