HPE Bolsters Compute Portfolio for Partners Embracing Cloud-Native Development

HPE DISCOVER/PARTNER GROWTH SUMMIT — The latest HPE update at its Discover 2022 event takes aim at the company’s expanding compute portfolio. The company announced that it is the first major server provider to deliver a new line of cloud-native compute solutions. What makes this unique? It’s doing so using processors from Ampere. 

There is an enormous wave of change happening in how compute infrastructure is built. Cloud service providers and digital-first enterprises are figuring out said infrastructure for the next wave of innovation. 

These new solutions are specifically designed to aid service providers and enterprises, those heading toward cloud-native development. The new HPE ProLiant RL300 Gen11 server (pictured above) is the first in a series that deliver next-generation compute performance with higher power efficiency using Ampere Altra and Ampere Altra Max cloud-native processors. It will be available in the third quarter.

Challenges This Addresses

HPE has made a point to talk to organizations – from service providers to SaaS companies to enterprises – that are embracing full stack, in-house development. There’s a common set of challenges that they face. There are challenges of budget and economics, with space, in power efficiency, and on the impact that has on sustainability in these operations. HPE has set about to tackle those challenges. 


HPE’s Neil MacDonald

“Service providers and digital-first enterprises are at the forefront of the next major compute infrastructure build-out,” said Neil MacDonald, executive vice president and general manager, Compute, HPE. “These organizations understand that agility, flexibility and innovation start with compute. They also realize that traditional ODM boxes simply won’t cut it in a market that demands depth of IP, performance, reliability, security and control. This is where HPE steps in and why we chose Ampere.”

Here’s our most recent list of new products and services that agents, VARs, MSPs and other partners offer.


Ampere’s Renee James

“Ampere is excited to be the first cloud-native and newest member of the HPE ProLiant family,” said Renee James, founder and CEO, Ampere. “The cloud is the growth engine of our industry but demands a modern processor that is both high performance and very power efficient to meet the global ESG demands. HPE is taking a leadership position in delivering cloud-native Ampere Altra and Altra Max based ProLiant systems to enterprise customers and service providers deploying cloud technologies.”

Fueling Emerging Markets in Cloud-Native Workloads

HPE now is extending its automated and secure compute solutions. It’s target? The rapidly growing service provider market, as well as digital-first enterprises jumping on cloud-native development.

The new offerings provide high performance and power efficiency to support a broad spectrum of evolving applications and use cases. Customers that offer digital services, media streaming and social platforms are the target here. Also, e-commerce, financial, or online services, and cloud-based services such as IaaS, PaaS and SaaS.

CloudSigma Early Adopter of HPE ProLiant RL Servers

CloudSigma is a pure-cloud IaaS and PaaS provider. The company focuses on advanced hybrid hosting solutions enabling the digital industrial economy. The company is a highly customizable cloud provider. It gives customers full control over their cloud and eliminating restrictions on how users deploy their computing resources.

As a provider of customized clouds, CloudSigma had a very specific box to check. The company required an agile and open platform that delivered predictable cost and high-performance. So it selected the HPE ProLiant RL300 server to meet its needs.

“Based on our benchmarking, the HPE ProLiant RL300 Gen11 server with Ampere processors is delivering a significantly higher power efficiency, said Robert Jenkin, CEO at CloudSigma. “This is allowing us to both meet our improved sustainability goals and provide a lower cost of delivery to our end customers.”
