As part of HPE Discover, HPE introduced the following series of innovations to the HPE GreenLake cloud platform:
HPE GreenLake Lighthouse – An agile, cloud-native solution that simplifies configurations to quickly deliver multiple cloud services on demand
Today, customers require agility and flexibility to quickly configure and provision different workloads based on dynamic business demands. To address these dynamic IT and business needs, HPE introduces HPE GreenLake Lighthouse, which provides a seamless and intelligent operational experience to run and manage solutions optimized for workloads.
HPE GreenLake Lighthouse is a secure, cloud-native platform that eliminates the process of requesting and waiting for a new configuration by allowing customers to add new cloud services in a few clicks within HPE GreenLake Central and activate them at the same time in minutes. Intelligent and native to the cloud, the platform is based on HPE Ezmeral software to autonomously optimize different cloud services and workloads through a composition of resources that offers the best performance and the lowest cost, or a balance between both. , depending on business priorities.
Customers can use HPE GreenLake Lighthouse to operate a variety of cloud services anywhere, whether in their data center, in the colocation center of their choice, or at the edge.
Project Aurora: The Foundation for HPE GreenLake Zero Trust Architecture
Edge-to-cloud security becomes more complex as organizations evolve their architectures to run applications that scale rapidly from the data center to cloud locations. In addition, attackers are employing increasingly advanced exploitation techniques that allow them to stay within a company for longer to cause damage at will.
HPE is addressing this issue through Project Aurora to incorporate cloud-native, zero-trust security into HPE’s edge-to-cloud architecture. Project Aurora will be integrated into the HPE GreenLake cloud platform components to automatically and continuously verify the integrity of hardware, firmware, operating systems, platforms and workloads, including security workloads.
Additionally, Project Aurora’s continuous verification capabilities can be used to automatically detect advanced threats from silicon to cloud in seconds, compared to the current 28-day average. These capabilities help companies minimize data loss, unauthorized encryption, and corruption of valuable data and intellectual property. Project Aurora also complements current security investments to reduce downtime and protect productivity and revenue.
The new initiative uses HPE’s silicon root-of-trust technology, widely recognized by cyber insurers for its ability to reduce risk. When combined with open source technologies like SPIFFE and SPIRE, Project Aurora enables DevOps (development and operations) and SecDevOps (security, development and operations) engineering teams to provide workload identities embedded in continuously verified hardware.
Project Aurora will be integrated into HPE GreenLake Lighthouse first. Going forward, it will integrate with HPE GreenLake cloud services and HPE Ezmeral software to provide customers with a way to define, build, and deploy – on any platform – a zero-trust architecture spanning from edge to edge. cloud.
Silicon on demand: higher capacity in the processor core with a few clicks
HPE will introduce a consumption-based pay-per-use pricing model that will be optimized at the silicon level to deliver a more granular cloud experience with better metering, shorter load times and faster deployment.
Available first through the HPE GreenLake cloud platform, HPE will offer flexible consumption capabilities with silicon-on-demand, a first-of-its-kind feature, developed in partnership with Intel, to add capacity at the processor core and persistent memory level. using Intel® Optane ™ technology. HPE is eliminating the need to order or install new processors by enabling customers to instantly purchase and activate more capacity with just one click.
Compute Cloud Console – Intuitive and automated management to deliver unified IT operations as a service
Many IT teams continue to use the same method to monitor and manage their IT assets as they did 20 years ago. As computing needs increasingly scale with servers and systems that are now outside the main data center and at the edge, this approach has become complex and time consuming, requiring more automated unified tools.
To help eliminate this complexity with simple control capabilities, HPE will offer unified IT operations as a service with Compute Cloud Console, an intuitive, cloud-based management service that automates IT operations across an organization’s fleet. Built on the HPE GreenLake platform, Compute Cloud Console simplifies infrastructure management with an optimal experience as a service, no matter where workloads run, from the edge to the cloud. Plus, it automates manual tasks like sourcing and lifecycle management, speeding time to market and eliminating inconsistencies caused by human error.
The new Compute Cloud Console complements the latest HPE innovations to offer centralized consoles with native cloud management capabilities. The console is built on the same proven, secure, and AI-powered technology that Aruba Central supports, an engine that serves more than 100,000 customers and more than a million interconnected devices. Compute Cloud Console is based on the recently announced Data Services Cloud Console, which offers a cloud-native and software-defined solution for data storage. Similar to the Compute Cloud Console, the Data Services Cloud Console provides a unified cloud operating model that provides data services and storage capabilities.
HPE GreenLake Cloud Services Expand to Serve Large Enterprise Markets and Essential Infrastructure Requirements
HPE also introduced a catalog of new cloud services that customers can easily access with just one click through the HPE GreenLake platform. These consist of cloud services for 5G, electronic medical records, financial services, data and risk analytics, high-performance computing (HPC), and artificial intelligence (AI).
