Hewlett Packard Enterprise announced HPE SimpliVity 380 with Microsoft Hyper-V and new SimpliVity integration partner solutions as a Citrix WorkSpace Appliance Partner. The new offerings expand customer hypervisor options and simplify and enhance the ability to provide high-performance virtual applications and desktops, making it faster and easier to deliver secure digital workspaces in today’s hybrid cloud world.
Businesses are weighed down by IT infrastructure that was not designed to enable them to move faster for today’s virtual environments. HPE SimpliVity 380 with Microsoft Hyper-V provides businesses with an easier IT infrastructure solution, simplifying the data center by converging servers, storage and storage networking into one simple to manage, software-defined platform. The result is increased business agility and economics of the cloud in an on-premises solution. The pre-integrated, all-flash, hyperconverged building block simplifies IT by combining all infrastructure and advanced data services for virtualized workloads—including VM-centric management and mobility, data protection and guaranteed data efficiency.
“As more Microsoft customers move toward hybrid infrastructure, it is vital to have a platform that can manage distributed systems across heterogeneous infrastructure. Furthermore, it is important for us to have a partner ecosystem giving our customers a choice of platforms. Integration of HPE SimpliVity with Windows Server 2016 and Microsoft Hyper-V makes this a reality,” said Erin Chapple, General Manager of Windows Server at Microsoft. “We are excited to have a strong partner like HPE build on Microsoft Hyper-V, giving our customers the freedom to choose between virtualization platforms for workloads and data.”
