Founded in 1939, Hewlett-Packard is a leader in technology and innovation. Pair of entrepreneurs named Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard met at Stanford University before beginning a startup in a rented garage that would be memorialized as a landmark: the “Birthplace of Silicone Valley”. Innovation, forward thinking, early advancements in audio processing technology before eventually moving into computing and information technology. Today, HPE offers groundbreaking technologies that improve your workflow, security, and data in unique ways.
HPE storage encompasses a wide range of products and services designed to meet the storage needs of businesses and organizations. These solutions include storage arrays, software-defined storage, flash storage, and hybrid storage systems. HPE storage solutions are known for their reliability, scalability, and performance. They are designed to handle large amounts of data and provide efficient data management and protection. HPE storage also offers features such as data deduplication, compression, and encryption to optimize storage efficiency and security.
Instead of creating and maintaining your own servers at high cost to your business, consider Amazon Simple Storage Solutions (S3). Amazon S3 works at an object level. It is scalable to store any amount of data, and it is accessible anytime on demand. With strong access controls, cost-effective storage options, and industry-leading data availability and storage, Amazon S3 can work for any size of business.
There are several storage classes within Amazon S3, all offering excellent durability and security for your data. For general purpose storage, S3 Standard and S3 Intelligent-Tiering offer low cost, low latency storage. If you access your data less frequently but still require rapid access, S3 Standard-IA or S3 One Zone-IA offers high availability storage at low costs. AWS also offers storage for archived data based on the required availability: S3 Glacier Instant Retrieval, S3 Glacier Flexible Retrieval, or S3 Glacier Deep Archive.
AWS offers serverless storage through the Amazon Elastic File System (EFS), allowing you to build and configure your shared file systems quickly and easily. Amazon EFS is optimized to handle the majority of applications and features high availability and extreme durability for your data. With scalable, agile storage that grows and shrinks with your needs, Amazon EFS reduces costs by ensuring that you only pay for what you use. In addition, Amazon EFS will automatically move your rarely-accessed files to lower cost storage. Amazon EFS is your solution if you need to quickly and easily share data with no management required.
Amazon FSx is a fully Windows-compatible storage system with high availability, default backups for all files, and automatically updated hardware patches and provisioning. If you rely on a Windows-based file server that is reaching capacity or is nearing end-of-life, Amazon FSx may be the solution for you. Amazon FSx offers low latency, guaranteed performance, and industry-leading security for your business files.
In addition to working seamlessly with Windows File Server, Amazon FSx offers storage for NetApp ONTAP, Open ZFS, and Lustre. Simply choose the system you already use and your data can be transferred seamlessly to your new cloud-based file system. With Amazon FSx, you only pay for what you use, eliminating the need to invest thousands in on-site storage in favor of pay-per-use storage with Amazon FSx.
Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS) low latency, high performance block storage for use with Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) instances. Amazon EBS supports SSD-based or HDD-based volume types and includes encryption for your data, both in-flight and at rest. As always, Amazon EBS is a cost-effective, scalable, and easy to use. Amazon EBS supports service levels that specialize in everything from highly available, low latency block storage to very low cost, durable storage for archived data blocks.
Amazon File Cache offers a unified view of your files, regardless of storage location. You can link physical servers, Amazon FSx, Amazon S3, or other cloud datasets within the Amazon File Cache. This low-latency cache makes it easier to process your file data by presenting a cohesive look at everything you have linked to the Amazon File Cache.
GreenLake is HPE’s flagship product, a hybrid cloud platform that seamlessly integrates edge-to-cloud technology. If your business is becoming overwhelmed with a growing pool of data, edge to cloud technology can connect your data regardless of where it lives and allow for affordable, simple data storage and processing.
With most IT companies moving to heavily cloud-based computing and storage, HPE provides a needed platform for locally stored edge computing. Edge computing offers invaluable benefits over a strict cloud-based platform, as the two technologies simply fill different needs.
Cloud computing and storage offers the ability to store and process data without owning physical servers, but is ideal for data processing that is less time-sensitive. It also is severely hampered by interrupted or suboptimal internet connectivity.
Edge technology processes data on-premises, resulting in extremely low latency – measured in milliseconds. It is not designed to store large quantities of data, but features quick data analysis and processing in real time and is not dependent on internet connectivity.
HPE GreenLake works to combine the strengths of both cloud and edge technology, offering a unique and needed solution for businesses of any size.
Alletra Storage MP is HPE’s answer to data storage, offering uncompromised performance with edge-to-cloud technology. Cost-efficient, consistent storage and efficiency. Removes need to configure, update, and support storage while streamlining cloud storage capabilities with your Allectra storage hardware. Supports the protocol of your choice and is designed from the ground up to support any cloud storage environment.
The hardware features a 2U chassis with up to 24 slots for hardware such as CPUs, DDR storage, and other building blocks of a complete server. What is truly remarkable about this hardware is its versatility in combination with HPE GreenLake for Block Storage OS. Fill the Alletra Storage MP hardware with storage and it becomes a capacity node. If you populate it with CPUs, you create a compute node. If you include storage and computing power within the chassis, it will serve as both a capacity node and a compute node.
This system is scalable, efficient, and easily reconfigured to fill your changing needs. Build a computing and storage server that offers the best of both worlds with the strongest edge-to-cloud technology available.
