Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has unveiled a next generation compute portfolio — the new HPE ProLiant Gen11 servers. They offer a cloud operating experience which powers hybrid environments and digital transformation. The servers provide organizations with intuitive, trusted and optimized compute resources, the company said.
HPE’s Neil MacDonald
Neil MacDonald is executive vice president and general manager, Compute, at HPE.
“The foundation of any hybrid strategy is compute,” MacDonald said. “HPE Compute brings businesses closer to the edge, where data is created, where new cloud experiences are delivered, and where security is integral. The new HPE ProLiant Gen11 servers are engineered for the hybrid world to deliver an intuitive cloud operating experience, trusted security by design, and optimized performance for workloads.”
Want to know which companies are offering cutting-edge products and services? Here’s our latest roundup.
The servers suit a range of modern workloads. These include AI, analytics, cloud-native applications, graphic-intensive applications, machine learning, virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) and virtualization.
A Simplified, Unified Console
On the servers, an HPE GreenLake for Compute Ops Management subscription provides a cloud-native management console. This increases operational efficiency by securely automating the process to access, monitor and manage servers. This is regardless of where the compute environment lives.
The console provides simple, unified and automated capabilities to allow customers to control their compute with global visibility and insight. Customers can also easily onboard thousands of distributed devices and benefit from faster server firmware updates, the company said. This allows users to focus efforts on business operations, and not on managing complex IT infrastructure.
HPE GreenLake for Compute Ops Management also includes carbon footprint reporting for customers. They can view emission metrics, from individual servers to full compute environments, to monitor energy usage.
HPE says its secure infrastructure starts at the silicon level with the HPE Silicon Root of Trust. It secures millions of HPE servers around the world. It’s an industry-exclusive security capability that protects millions of lines of firmware code, from malware and ransomware. It does so with a digital fingerprint that is unique to the server.
The next-generation HPE ProLiant servers build on this security innovation with new features to protect data and systems. They ensure verification and authentication for device components. They prevent alterations to unique server identity access. In addition, the servers add an additional layer of authentication by monitoring a secure boot and system state. Last, the company says it can adopt the highest level of security through the HPE Trusted Supply Chain.
Organizations run more demanding workloads, including AI, machine learning and rendering projects. They require optimal compute and accelerated compute performance. The company optimized the next-generation HPE ProLiant servers to deliver high performance on an organization’s most data-intensive workloads. They also support a diverse set of architectures.
Compared to the previous generation, the new HPE ProLiant Gen11 servers support twice as much I/O bandwidth for the most demanding applications. They support 50% more cores per CPU for improved workload consolidation. Additionally, they render 33% more high-performance GPU density per server to support AI and graphic-intensive workloads.
Pay-As-You-Go Consumption Model
Organizations looking to transition from one generation to the next can adopt HPE’s next-generation compute. They can carry out the transaction through a traditional infrastructure purchase or through a pay-as-you-go model with HPE GreenLake. HPE GreenLake is an as-a-service platform that enables customers to accelerate data-first modernization. It provides over 70 cloud services that can run on-premises, at the edge, in a colocation facility and in the public cloud.
Additionally, through HPE Financial Services (HPEFS), customers can convert existing technology assets into capital to purchase new or upgraded technology.
