HPE Synergy: advantages versus Dell FX

Introduction

In today's idea economy, businesses need to turn ideas into services faster. It has never been more crucial to turn ideas into new products, services, or applications - and quickly drive them to market. Until now, IT has been evolving from traditional approaches to converged systems to hyperconverged. This evolution has delivered an incremental improvement in operational efficiency, but a new, more complete architecture is now needed. Today's IT needs an infrastructure that enables them to partner with their business to speed the delivery of services. Such an infrastructure should empower innovation and value creation for the new breed of applications while at the same time run traditional workloads more efficiently. In a word, IT infrastructure needs to be composable.
HPE Synergy is the first platform purpose built for composable infrastructure that empowers IT to create and deliver new value instantly and continuously. As the infrastructure with a single built-in user interface, HPE Synergy reduces operational complexity by composing physical and virtual compute, storage, and fabric pools into any configuration for any application. As an extensible platform, it easily enables a broad range of applications and operational models such as virtualization, hybrid cloud, and DevOps. With HPE Synergy, IT can become not just an internal service provider but also a true business partner to rapidly launch new applications that become the business. This paper identifies the advantages of HPE Synergy and describes the benefits of deploying HPE Synergy over Dell FX.

One infrastructure for any workload

IT infrastructure should be a solution with the ability to provide any application with the specific system resources it needs - an infrastructure that can provision and run any workload across virtual machines, bare-metal deployment, containers, and cloud-native applications.
