Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has introduced HPE OneSphere, a multi-cloud management solution that provides a unified experience across public clouds, on-premises private clouds and software-defined infrastructure.
Through its software-as-a-service (SaaS) portal, HPE OneSphere provides customers access to a pool of IT resources that spans the public cloud services they subscribe to, as well as their on-premises environments. HPE OneSphere is designed for IT operations, developers, and business executives seeking to build clouds, deploy applications, and gain insights faster, said the company.
Designed to simplify operations, the solution works across virtual machines, containerised workloads, and bare metal applications, so internal stakeholders can compose hybrid clouds capable of supporting both traditional and cloud-native applications. Delivered as a service, HPE OneSphere provides users with a single point to access all their applications and data from anywhere. Through it, users can build private clouds and connect public cloud resources, resulting in a virtual resource pool.
“Our customers need a radically new approach – one that’s designed for the new hybrid IT reality,” said Ric Lewis, senior vice president and general manager, Software-Defined and Cloud Group, HPE. “With HPE OneSphere, we’re abstracting away the complexity of managing multi-cloud environments and applications so our customers can focus on what’s important – accelerating digital transformation and driving business outcomes.”
Through HPE Pointnext, the company simplifies customers’ end-to-end digital transformation, including helping them build their strategy, implement multi-cloud environments and simplify costs through consumption models. With the recent acquisition of CTP, which specialises in cloud consulting services, HPE brings expertise in migrating, developing, and managing cloud applications and infrastructures across public and private clouds. In addition, the HPE OneSphere pay-for-use subscription licensing model complements the HPE Flexible Capacity pay-for-use consumption model for customers’ on-premises infrastructure. HPE makes it simple and affordable for customers to start with a single DevOps project or manage across a multi-cloud, multi-site enterprise.
HPE OneSphere’s key benefits include improved speed and simplicity, accelerated application delivery and greater cost efficiency, said the firm. HPE OneSphere will be available starting in January 2018.
The company has recently announced that CEO Meg Whitman is stepping down from the role and will remain on its board of directors while Antonio Neri, current president of HPE, will become president and CEO, effective 1st February, 2018.
