#HewlettPackardEnterprise is putting former vendor sales partners of #SimpliVity on notice that their time as a partner of the #hyperconvergedinfrastructure is fast coming to a close. With the closing this month of #HPE ’s $650 million acquisition of SimpliVity, Antonio Neri, vice president and general manager of the company’s Enterprise Group, said that means former sales partners of SimpliVity – #Cisco Systems, #Lenovo and #Huawei — will have to find their own way to hyper-converged infrastructure success.  SimpliVity did not sell its hyper-converged infrastructure technologies, which include its #OmniStack software and a proprietary card that sits in qualified servers, through Cisco, Lenovo or Huawei. Instead, it offered the technology as a so-called meet-in-the-channel model where solution providers integrated the SimpliVity technology with the server of choice for the customer.
