@HPE recently introduced the new HPE @SimpliVity 2600, a solution meant to complement the existing SimpliVity 380 #hyperconverged solution with a new and highly dense platform for client #virtualization projects. Here’s a rundown of the new offering and what you need to know before taking advantage of it as it becomes available to organizations later this summer.

About HPE SimpliVity 2600
This new platform is optimized for space-constrained deployments and offers a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) solution that has double the rack unit density of others in the market. HPE SimpliVity 2600 allows you to create a self-contained option for scalable VDI even in hyperconverged environments. In addition, everything you need to run those VMs is included in a compact chassis, so you can just add a node of storage or compute at any point in order to scale the environment.

Who can benefit from HPE SimpliVity 2600
Because of the ability for HPE SimpiVity 2600 to run VMs in compact environments or customize the storage space allotted, the new solution could end up being perfect for those whose organizations have limited datacenter space or expensive colocation sites that need dense compute and moderate storage. It is also likely to be an attractive option for those who value virtualized compute and storage with enhanced application performance, efficiency, and quick activation of VMs.

One of the main benefits of HPE’s SimpliVity solutions is that it allows organizations to simplify IT while also enhancing data protection through backup and recovery. Since those are features that are built into the solution, it makes it a perfect choice for organizations that value both security and simplicity. Additionally, HPE SimpliVity 2600 is the first software-optimized offering in the HPE SimpliVity portfolio, so that could make it an attractive jumping off point for organizations looking to break into the world of HPE data virtualization.
