With this HCI solution, businesses can simplify the management of virtualized storage and will enjoy unified control over all IT operations in one efficient system.


Benefits Of HPE GreenLake for HPE SimpliVity

HPE GreenLake is also transforming IT by offering managed services as a pay-per-use model. HPE GreenLake for HPE SimpliVity allows organizations to now build their own VM as‑a‑service platform with ease. Additionally, with HPE GreenLake Central, organizations can track capabilities for consumption and costs, and it is easier to accelerate the value of application deployments while avoiding costly upfront investments. This provides an excellent opportunity for digital transformation with no overprovisioning needed, which also saves enterprises 30% in CapEx savings.

Four Ways HPE SimpliVity Is Creating A New Standard For HCI

  1. All-In-One Solution

With its all-in-one intelligent solution, HPE SimpliVity simplifies the deployment and scaling process, streamlines management tasks through software-defined infrastructure, unifies control systems, and automates policies. The best part? It is powered by AI for a truly seamless experience.

This all-in-one HCI solution also provides an easy and fast way to deploy virtual or container-based workloads across your environment. With its rapid deployment capabilities, zero downtime refresh cycles, and modular systems for scaling up as needed, HPE SimpliVity is the perfect solution for any business looking to quickly adjust their IT infrastructure in response to changing demands.

Furthermore, HPE InfoSight for HPE SimpliVity enables businesses to predict and diagnose infrastructure issues with powerful telemetry, machine learning capabilities, and automated alerts. It provides a multi-site view of all VMs and backups complete with insights on hardware and software problems and recommendations for corrective action. This reduces operational expenses and alleviates support needs.

  1. High Availability With Two Nodes

HPE SimpliVity is designed to enable continuous operations while saving you money and valuable space. This is achieved by using just two nodes, reducing the number of appliances required along with a smaller data center footprint. Furthermore, it meets SLAs through protection against multiple failures and uptime across multiple sites, via stretched clustering technology.

  1. Incorporated Data Protection

HPE SimpliVity is the perfect choice for data protection, guaranteeing resiliency and disaster recovery. It has powerful capabilities such as VM backups anytime and anywhere with a 1 TB restore in 60 seconds or less. Also, with its secure cloud bank backup options to reduce costs and risks, organizations can mitigate ransomware threats while enjoying maximum safety of valuable data.

  1. Increased Efficiency

With the help of HPE SimpliVity, expect to experience frequent backups with quick restores in addition to longer retention periods and faster recovery times using lightweight VMs. This innovative HCI solution saves 90% of capacity on storage combined with guaranteed backup. Multi-site disaster recovery becomes more efficient due to a need for ten times fewer WAN links. This ultimately allows businesses to save money by reducing the amount of data sent over the network while minimizing expensive resources used within their data centers.
