Six New Workload Optimized Instances for HPE GreenLake For Private Cloud Enterprise
HPE has added six new standardized building blocks of compute, memory, and storage infrastructure for private cloud.
The new offerings include compute-optimized, memory-optimized, and storage-optimized instances, Thompson said.
A customer, for example, that is looking to run an SAP stack with demands for a large in-memory database now has the option to use one of those modules, Thompson said. That opens the door for customers to easily provision virtual machine workloads, container workloads, or optimized bare metal nodes, he said.
“We have expanded the portfolio of more optimized solutions,” he said.
Other HPE GreenLake for Private Cloud Enterprise optimizations include application patterns for Epic electronic healthcare and Splunk analytics workloads, said Thompson.
“There are a couple of different flavors that follow the patterns that we see,” he said. “And we have some example application or workload types to help inform that. But the intent is that they are not built for just a particular workload. It follows that pattern that is typical of those types of workloads.”
