The edge computing superstar – which was acquired nearly three months ago by Hewlett Packard Enterprise for $925 million -is ready to play an even bigger role in the edge landscape with the backing of its $27 billion edge to cloud platform as a service parent. Aruba – HPE’s intelligent edge subsidiary- has already started integrating the Silver Peak SD-WAN offering tightly with its AI based ClearPass security platform. The second priority integration point with Silver Peak will be with Aruba Central-the Aruba network management platform -with a delivery timetable of one year, said Melkote.
“We are going to get what I call a ‘turbo acceleration’ from the Silver Peak acquisition,” predicted HPE CEO Antonio Neri in an interview with CRN.
