HPE Throws New Hat Into Hyper-Converged Ring

Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) this week launched the new ProLiant Easy Connect EC200a hyper-converged appliance, a small Intel Xeon-based cube aimed at accelerating the strategic service provider business model.

The new server appliance, which features a managed services software platform from British software maker Zynstra, opens the door for partners to deliver an on-premise subscription-based server offering for delivering hybrid cloud to small and midsized businesses.

The new SMB hyper-converged appliance, which HPE says is ideal for remote and branch offices (ROBO), is aimed at helping partners and customers avoid the hassle of security patches and updates in a standard strategic service provider subscription model.

The Easy Connect model provides partners the option of backup and disaster recovery as a service with the ability to wrap in their own services, including security and vertical market-based offerings.
