True HyperConvergence From Hewlett Packard Enterprise–Meet the HC 380

What you will learn

Consolidate your IT components into a single optimized platform with centralized management. Sound right for you? It's time for HyperConvergence.

Hewlett Packard Enterprise has long been in the remote-hosted desktop & application virtualization market–with their biggest advantage being the broad range and flexibility of hardware and software offerings for Client Virtualization solutions. With HyperConverged Integrated Solutions (HCIS), HPE now has a unique opportunity to merge our previously segregated & disparate components into truly hyperconverged solutions.

Though many common challenges of traditional VDI implementations have been resolved by some of the current HyperConverged solutions in the space, most serve as simply software-defined storage for managing many server nodes and their local onboard storage. HPE has extrapolated on this existing model to provide not only industry-leading software-defined storage via VSA, but also a game-changing new management console. Built-upon the world’s leading server platform (DL380) and powered by HPE’s OneView with hypervisor integration, the newly launched HC 380 provides true hyper convergence with the following benefits (amongst others):

  • Simple, Automated installation & scaling via HPE’s OneView Instant-On;
  • Intuitive (Grommet-based) console for:
    • Automation of firmware, driver, software updating
    • Virtual Machine Vending for VM templates, customization, cloning & power on/off
    • Pre-loaded OS images & VMs
    • Current & theoretical virtualization utilization & health monitoring
    • Logs & tracking of all IT tasks for auditing purposes
  • HW lifecycle management via HPE OneView;
  • Dashboards for analysis w/ projected use alerts & capacity planning via HPE Cloud Optimizer.

Webinar will be moderated by CTP and CUGC member Jo Harder. Presentation will include Q&A from participants.

Presented by CUGC and HPE, this webinar is free for all members. Register today, space is limited.
