*VIDEO*Enhancements for HPE SimpliVity at the edge with comprehensive data protection and container integration
The need for edge computing has increased through the proliferation of data-gathering devices now located in factories, oil rigs, airplanes, shipping containers, homes and even race cars.
Hewlett Packard Enterprise Co. has recently enhanced its SimpliVity offering for the enterprise edge as part of its overall strategy for hyperconvergence, an IT framework that combines compute, storage and networking into a single system. For a major enterprise tech provider such as HPE, which ships four servers and 46 terabytes of storage every 60 seconds, a hyperconverged solution targeted for the edge makes perfect sense.
“A lot of our customers are generating a lot of data at the edge,” said Omer Asad (pictured), vice president and general manager of primary storage and data management services at HPE. “The right architecture, in my opinion, needs to be simple to deploy, with storage, compute and networking out towards the edge in a hyperconverged environment.”
Omer Asad spoke with Dave Vellante, host of theCUBE, SiliconANGLE Media’s livestreaming studio, as part of a special presentation with Red Bull Racing Honda. They discussed the latest enhancements for HPE’s hyperconverged offering, Container Storage Interface driver for Kubernetes support, and a way that users can avoid paying egress fees for transferring data.
