Announced at CeBIT 2017 in Germany, the HPE SimpliVity 380 with OmniStack is the first qualified server from Hewlett Packard Enterprise with SimpliVity OmniStack. On February 17th, HPE finalized the acquisition of SimpliVity and announced plans to deliver its first jointly developed hyperconverged offering.

The new HPE SimpliVity 380 with OmniStack delivers a powerhouse hyperconverged solution that dramatically simplifies IT by combining all infrastructure and advanced data services for virtualized workloads onto the bestselling server platform on the market, HPE ProLiant DL380.

The HPE SimpliVity 380 with OmniStack is a compact, scalable 2U, rack-mounted building block that delivers server, storage and storage networking services. It also provides a complete set of advanced functionality that enables dramatic improvements to the efficiency, management, protection, and performance of virtualized workloads – all at a fraction of the cost and complexity of today’s traditional infrastructure stack.

The new HPE SimpliVity 380 with OmniStack is the only hyperconverged solution that deduplicates, compresses, and optimizes all data globally, improving performance, and guaranteeing 90% capacity savings across storage and backup. It is also the only hyperconverged solution that delivers policy-based, VM-centric management to simplify day-to-day operations and enable data mobility, increasing productivity.

Other key features of the new solution include:

  • Assimilation of core datacenter functions: HPE SimpliVity 380 with OmniStack combines the hypervisor, compute, storage, storage network switching, backup, replication, cloud gateway, caching, WAN optimization, real-time deduplication, and more.
  • Cloud economics with enterprise capabilities: HPE SimpliVity 380 with OmniStack delivers the agility, elasticity, and affordability of cloud computing coupled with the performance, reliability, and resiliency of on-premises infrastructure.
  • Cost savings: Independent studies show that running VMs on HPE SimpliVity hyperconverged infrastructure is 22% to 49% less expensive than running them in a comparable Amazon Web Services environment, when considering total costs over a three-year period.
