At HPE Discover, the server specialist introduces the next phase in its composable strategy. It expands its cloud services through an open hybrid cloud platform that focuses on composability. The integrated software stack gives companies the benefits of public and private clouds.

Composable is a buzzword that we hear a lot on HPE Discover. It concerns a specific approach for provisioning and managing both real and virtual hardware assets. It bridges software and hardware by using infrastructure as code. Composable breaks through classic silos to develop and manage applications.

This application centric approach aims to work more efficiently operationally and to reduce infrastructure costs. It provides additional flexibility with changing resource requirements. HPE now has a fully integrated software stack ready. It allows companies to choose between numerous public and private cloud with the speed, efficiency and scale of public cloud providers.

Software stack

HPE has repeatedly complained that their new Composable Fabric on HPE ProLiant DL servers drastically simplifies classic data center network configurations. It configures the network itself and provides a dynamic workload balance. HPE claims that thanks to Composable Fabric performance increases by up to 70 percent and over-provisioning also decreases by up to 70 percent.

The software stack is led by HPE InfoSight, the AI assistant who provides predictive analytics and continuously learns to optimize the environment. You also get intelligent data insights. The Composable Fabric allows you to scale over servers, racks and data centres without interruption.

Finally, the stack is powered by HPE OneView and HPE OneSphere. The first does software-defined infrastructure management and workflow automation. This allows the IT department to build and scale private clouds in no time at all. It also offers a broad API partner ecosystem. OneSphere is the as-a-Service hybrid cloud management solution for public and private clouds. From now on you can also provide bare-metal-as-a-service provisioning with the automation of OneView.
