It’s no secret that HPE has been on the forefront of storage innovation for some time. Even with that knowledge, HPE’s recent announcement is still an exciting moment for IT leaders everywhere.
In this article, we’ll break down the most important points of HPE’s recent announcements and new offerings, as well as how they can help you leverage your data to make decisions that will drive your business forward.
What Are The Specific Problems HPE Is Trying To Solve?
To really understand HPE’s goals with their new storage offerings, it’s important to have a clear idea of the specific data storage problems they set out to solve when designing them.
First and foremost is the amount of data that organizations are faced with. New digital efforts have resulted in more data than ever before, and with increased cyber threats, as well as rising expectations to utilize data, enterprises are left with a very complex situation that requires manual management for many IT organizations. As shared by HPE, this complexity “creates risk and comes at a cost to innovation and time-to-market.”
For those organizations that have transformed their data storage to reduce the burden on IT through artificial intelligence (AI), self-service, policy-based automation or other strategies, the problem of complexity still remains.
This complexity is exactly the challenge HPE has tackled with their latest cloud-native storage offerings, which aim to streamline operations and provide simplicity for data management.
The latest in As-A-Service: HPE’s New Cloud Console
The new Data Services Cloud Console is a SaaS-based console that delivers unified data operations as a service, drastically reducing the need for manual data and infrastructure management.
When designing the console, HPE built upon, “a unique, cloud-native architecture—shared with the Aruba Edge Services Platform—and is designed to abstract and control infrastructure and data workflows across the data lifecycle and infrastructure lifecycle from edge-to-cloud.”
By utilizing Aruba Central as its technological foundation, the console ensures enterprises experience the secure management experience of on-premises environments, but with the agility of the cloud.
The Data Services Cloud Console is also helping organizations focus less on managing their data and more on utilizing it to their advantage by speeding app development and deployment, eliminating data silos, and offering the cloud experience regardless of the location of the data.
