At JMARK, we have built our business by standing on the shoulders of giants. Partnering with the best in class technology vendors provides us with the tools and resources we need to create the innovative technology solutions our customers need for today’s digitally-driven world. One of our most trusted partners is Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) who offer both hardware and software which we incorporate into our solutions.
HPE is a technology solutions company formed on November 1st, 2015 when Hewlett Packard (HP) separated its operations into two distinct organizations. HP retained the desktop and laptop products for both the business and consumer markets, and the imaging division which offers printing and scanning solutions. HPE, on the other hand, was created to provide products targeted at the enterprise data center market which include servers, enterprise storage, networking, and associated enterprise software. In addition to these products, HPE also provides professional services and consulting in the enterprise solution space helping their customers and partners with technology innovation and business transformation.
As many organizations transition from traditional I.T. environments to a more secure, cloud-enabled, mobile-friendly architecture, HPE provides the products, services, and solutions which enable this transformation. One of HPE’s principal differentiators is that they deliver high-quality, high-value products, consulting, and support services in a single package. With industry-leading positions in servers, storage, wired and wireless networking, converged systems, software, services, and cloud, HPE is well suited to help any organization leverage technology to transform their business.
Servers and Server Systems
HPE’s server solutions range from standalone towers and rack servers to hyper-converged blade systems giving you the ability to run any workload on one infrastructure. Their “workload optimized” portfolio includes density-optimized servers which deliver high-performance and efficiency for demanding workloads such as big data solutions, while their HPE Synergy range provides the adaptability needed for hybrid I.T. architectures. HPE also caters for IoT workloads with their HPE Edgeline server and offer a selection of virtualization solutions and operating systems from strategic partners such as Microsoft and VMware.
HPE’s Server Partner Program allows vendors to demonstrate that their server-based apps work on HPE hardware. This offering provides end users with visibility into a variety of server-based applications. Not only does this give you the assurance that the mission-critical app you plan to deploy on an HPE server performs as it should, but it also provides a directory of industry solutions you can implement to transform your business.
When it comes to enterprise data storage, HPE offers a wide range of solutions which cater to general requirements as well as niche organizational needs. With flash and hybrid storage configurations available, you can structure your HPE storage solution so that it delivers both performance and efficiency. With solution-ready products for data protection, file and object storage, enterprise applications, virtual machines, containers, and networking, HPE ensures you have access to the correct storage solution so you can align it with your business requirements.
Every HPE storage platform provides all-inclusive licensing with no hidden costs making it easier for you to budget and forecast your hardware expenditure. Their six nines guarantee also gives you peace of mind knowing their platform is resilient, and all HPE storage solutions are easy to upgrade ensuring your technology investment is future proof.
As organizations embark on their digital transformation journeys, networking plays a critical role as it provides the communications backbone needed by new, high-performance applications. HPE offers networking products which supply the solutions required by modern organizations which cater for every requirement from the access layer to the data center.
Their Aruba mobile-first platform makes implementing and managing enterprise wireless networks simple with ArubaOS. This proprietary wireless operating system provides the intelligence modern networks need and is designed to deliver the highest level of reliability to mobile users. Other Aruba software solutions such as Airwave help you collect data about mobile app performance and WiFi metrics, while ClearPass provides contextually aware security by interrogating the device type, health, user, time and location, ensuring only legitimate users and devices can gain authenticated access to your network.
HPE also offers data center networking products with solutions which range from the edge to the data center core. These platforms allow organizations to implement open, programmable networking architectures which seamlessly integrate into their computer, storage, and cloud technology stacks.
Enterprise I.T. Management Software
When it comes to enterprise I.T. management software, HPE offers a suite of products for managing I.T. infrastructure which includes solutions which cover business continuity, security, cloud, server, network, and storage.
HPE OneView gives you the ability to transform servers, storage, and networking into software-defined infrastructure, eliminating the need for complex manual processes which increases the speed and flexibility of I.T. service delivery. This infrastructure management solution allows you to deploy infrastructure faster using automated templates created by I.T. specialists. It also simplifies lifecycle operations by providing a single, unified view of the health of your servers across multiple data centers, and it offers an API which gives you the ability to integrate other software products creating a holistic infrastructure management solution.
HPE Workload Aware Security for Linux reduces security deployment time from days to minutes by delivering automated security compliance to industry standards for the Linux operating system. When it comes to protecting your critical business apps and service, HPE offers Serviceguard, which allows you to leverage high-availability and disaster recovery, enabling a zero downtime Linux environment.
For cloud management, HPE OneSphere delivers an end-to-end, multi-cloud management platform enabling you to deploy, operate, and optimize hybrid I.T. environments and workloads. In addition, HPE has three separate enterprise software products for server management. Insight Control for server lifecycle management, Integrated Lights Out (iLO) for remote server management, and a range of HPC Software which is specially crafted to help you manage high-performance computing (HPC) systems.
We have already discussed HPE’s Aruba wireless offering as well as the software solutions which accompany it. However, HPE also offers Intelligent Management Center, a comprehensive wired and wireless network management tool which gives you the ability to manage your network from end to end ensuring your business receives the necessary uptime and performance.
For storage management, there are several different enterprise software solutions available from HPE.
