To respond faster to the demands of digital transformation, organizations must deploy software-defined technology

Today’s customers face complex and varied needs as their IT environments continue to evolve due to an explosion of apps and data. To respond faster to the demands of digital transformation, organizations must deploy software-defined technology and solutions capable of delivering business outcomes at cloud speed.

With this in mind, today HPE is helping customers accelerate their adoption of software-defined infrastructure with the introduction of the HPE SimpliVity 2600. This latest solution will complement the existing HPE SimpliVity 380 hyperconverged solution and give customers a new, highly dense platform for client virtualization.

Optimized for space-constrained deployments, the new platform offers customers a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) solution with twice the rack unit density ofcomparable offerings. In a hyperconverged environment where storage and networking are software-defined, the HPE SimpliVity 2600 creates a self-contained option for scale-out VDI. Because everything needed to run the VMs is in a compact chassis, customers can simply add a node of storage or compute anytime they need to scale the environment.This solution is ideal for organizations with limited data center space or expensive colocation sites that need dense compute with moderate storage.

Customers who choose HPE SimpliVity solutions value virtualized compute and storage with enhanced application performance, efficiency, and the ability to activate VMs in seconds. In fact, most customers I speak with who have deployed HPE SimpliVity tell me it has simplified their IT while enhancing data protection through backup and recovery, which is a standard built-in feature. As the first software-optimized offering in the HPE SimpliVity portfolio, the HPE SimpliVity 2600 provides a foundation to expand the HPE data virtualization platform from core to edge.

In addition, HPE is the first industry vendor to deliver consistent performance with software-enabled, always-on deduplication and compression, which has been tested and validated by HPE and Login VSI – the IT-industry standard in VDI performance load-testing and benchmarking.

In its latest report, Login VSI validated the performance of the HPE SimpliVity hyperconverged infrastructure and how it dramatically simplifies IT systems management. The HPE SimpliVity solution delivers industry-leading data efficiency, global unified management, and built-in data protection. For client virtualization environments, HPE SimpliVity provides an unmatched user experience without compromising desktop density or resiliency.
