HPE SimpliVity software-defined networking for hyperconvergence

Modern IT leaders face a dilemma. The cost and complexity of traditional IT leave few resources to focus on transformative projects and innovation - let alone a simplified, agile environment. And while public cloud promises high speed and agility, going all-in on cloud computing isn't possible for business-critical workloads where performance, protection, privacy, and control are paramount. If you're struggling to achieve the agility and economics of the cloud computing with enterprise-grade performance and protection, HPE SimpliVity with software-defined networking (SDN) is the answer.

Power-up your enterprise private cloud

HPE SimpliVity with SDN assimilates data center services, including compute, storage, network switching, hypervisor, backup, replication, cloud gateway, caching, WAN optimization, real-time deduplication, and more - in a single building block. Clustering multiple units forms a shared resource pool and delivers high availability and efficient scaling of performance and capacity. It is specifically designed to bring cloud agility, scalability, and simplicity to the enterprise data center.
The solution delivers a comprehensive, fully integrated, and hyperconverged offering that includes software-defined compute, storage, and networking. It also provides the added benefits of VM-centric management and mobility, built-in data protection, and advanced data services, including always-on, inline deduplication and compression of user data, at inception.

True hyperconvergence

Enterprises are introducing hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) to accelerate the pace of innovation, reduce TCO, and streamline operations. By consolidating compute and storage resources onto a common infrastructure, IT organizations can contain equipment sprawl and reduce administrative complexity. However, many organizations fail to consider HCI data center networking implications and requirements, treating the network as a discrete technology silo, managed by a separate team using distinct administrative tools and practices. Networking infrastructure is typically deployed as well as provisioned independently of compute and storage infrastructure, consuming time and resources.
