HPE IT moves to a Shared Services model based on home-grown and Docker technologies

Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) is no different than any other enterprise business when it comes to needing more flexible infrastructure and more collaborative business processes. Two big items on the HPE IT wish list were to accelerate development of applications and enable everything as code. Developing apps in a monolithic fashion was taking too long, and moving from dev to test to production was too cumbersome. IT needed a continuous delivery pipeline for applications, compute, storage, database, network and OS changes. And like most businesses, HPE needed to support both traditional apps and distributed apps as it moved to a self-service DevOps model. Another big item was to empower development teams and IT Ops teams to become better integrated and self-organize around the DevOps manifesto to develop, deploy and maintain the platform.

The approach: Docker in the Data Center

HPE IT built a centralized Shared Services approach based on Docker DataCenter and HPE Composable Infrastructure and other HPE solutions with these elements:

  • Composable Infrastructure to meet today’s AppDev needs with HPE Synergy, HPE OneView + HPE BladeSystem c7000 + HPE Insight Control server provisioning and Docker Machine Plugin
  • Container as a Service using Docker Datacenter to enable an IT Ops managed and secure application environment for developer self-service to build and deploy apps
  • HPE 3PAR Storage with the HPE Native Docker Volume plugin for containers that required data persistence across infrastructure nodes
  • Built-in security and trust for building, shipping and running Docker containers with solutions like HPE App Defender and Docker Content Trust services
  • Proactive Analytics for Automated discovery of containers and swarm infrastructure leveraging HPE SiteScope and HPE Ops Analytics for disaster avoidance
